If you’re like most people on the planet you’ve questioned why you’re here, on Earth, at this difficult time. As an ordained minister, please allow me to speak on a soul level… There’s much to be learned by living in struggling times. The current hardships are much, but when you face them with an open heart you’ll sense that things are right with your world and those around you. Take care not to judge events as good or bad. Take care not to guess at God’s grand plan. Events and occurrences happen for a reason – no doubt about it. But what you might consider a challenge is actuality a stepping stone to the growth of your soul. The time is now to realize the importance of the role you play in the All-That-Is.

Too often, when in a deep emotional state, we tend to try and “fix” things by ourselves. When you have done all that you’re able to do, and you feel as though there is nowhere to turn, look within for there you will find your maker. Look within for there you will find your true strength – it’s been there all along, but you haven’t tapped into it. Shake off your self-pity and get back in the race. You have a role to play. Not only for yourself, but also for all others around you. You don’t realize the importance of your actions or the words you speak.

There’s a lesson here. Much like the character, George Bailey, in the movie It’s a Wonderful Life, you must come to understand the significance of the role you play while on Earth. Without you everything will have changed. Your children would not have been born and gone on to create fulfilling lives of their own, your spouse or significant other would not be who they are today without your influence, your company might have closed it’s doors without your intelligence and insight, and the needy might not have survived without your donation. Without you the world would forever be altered.

We are told not to seek adoration for it is the game of the ego. But I tell you now – being assured and fully assimilating the knowledge that you have made a difference in someone’s life, is important for your own well being. There is nothing wrong with this. When this knowledge is sought with humility it urges you to continue seeking outlets for your generosity.

Don’t underestimate your importance in the grand scheme of things. Don’t hinder yourself such as this. You are here for a reason - right now - right here. The changes taking place around you are opportunities for you to realize whom you really are. This is your wake-up call - a gentle reminder that you, and the roles you play, are more important than you could possibly comprehend. So, when you question the meaning of your life or contemplate what your contribution to society has been, look back upon your life. What might have seemed to be a simple deed may have moved mountains for another.
