It's a Wonderful Life

Job 3 reminds me of my favourite film. It always comes to the fore this time of year and I must have watched it a thousand times. Starring my favourite actor Jimmy Stewart - It's a Wonderful Life is a classic.

George Bailey had great dreams but through circumstances saw them disappear and ends up on Christmas Eve in a desperate situation. Although not quite in the mess that Job finds himself he ends up making the same statement. I wish I had never been born!

His guardian angel Clarence Peabody Angel 2nd Class is given the task, as is Job's friend in Ch 4 v 4 of explaining to George that his life has affected many people and that he had done huge things.

Life is an incredible gift that we have been given by God. In it we can touch so many others for good and God can touch us, not by sending an angel 2nd class, but by sending His son. Through Him no matter what the circumstances we can have - a wonderful life.

Didn't know he was your favourite actor, mine too for as long as I can remember, but Shop around the corner is my favourite. The Lord woke me up this morning and Life being a gift is definately on my mine today, thanks for sharing chris Buchan
