The Movie Version of Your Life
(A Lighthearted Summertime Reflection)
A while ago a ‘Ted Talk’ presenter said something like: “We are the lead actors in the story of our lives”. That language got me to think about seeing the thread of our lives as a movie.
So, imagine that you’re writing the script for the movie version of your life. What would the core message be? Name 2 or 3 real-life incidents that would capture your basic story line. Include a time of crisis in your life.
The Ted Talk presenter also said something like: “Everyone else in our lives are ‘supporting actors and actresses’.” Name your real-life best supporting actors and actresses…people who made/make a big difference in the unfolding of your life.
How would you show your relationship with God in the movie? Is/was there a particular incident in your life when you just knew that God was with you? How would you depict that moment?
