George Bailey has had enough. He’s always working, always sacrificing, and it seems to get him nowhere. When he faces losing the family business that he never wanted to run in the first place, he contemplates ending it all. However, he gets the opportunity to see what the world would be like without him and recognizes how wonderful his life really is.
Things don’t always turn out the way we’ve planned. This gets frustrating to us because we think we know what’s best for our lives. But nothing that happens to us surprises God. When faced with a difficult decision about his family and marriage, Joseph follows God’s will and fulfills the prophesies about Jesus, our Savior. God uses the unexpected to do His work through us.
