Destiny: A matter of . . . ?

Is destiny a matter of choice, or is it a matter of chance?
And does knowing really matter?

To clarify, here’s what DESTINY means
  1. The events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future.
  2. The hidden power believed to control what will happen in the future; fate.
Back home, Mommy has this display that says “Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice, it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”

So, I went on with life, never questioning destiny. I knew I have an active part in what will happen in my future.

I know there is God and He has all the good planned out for me, but He has also given me free will to become the person that He really intends me to be… as for the future?... I've always believed in this song learned from high school...

God knows all about tomorrow,
He can see  beyond today..
Be it filled with joy or sorrow,
He has planned it that way..
So I do not fear the future, on His promises I stand,
God knows all about tomorrow, for He holds it in His hands.

Everything that I was doing, thought of doing, thinking of doing or plan to do will all have a positive and negative effect in my life.

Life may be full of “CHANCE”.  I won't call it coincidences or accidents, but rather opportunities or lessons... and I know, I will always have a "CHOICE" as to how I will perceive, act or learn from the “chances” that life continues to give me.

Interesting topic, destiny, and all of you who commented here, are all correct. I’m not a guru, not even an expert.. just wanting to excite your thoughts with something to think about…

Honestly for me, destiny is a matter of faith.

AND this I know, we create our future with the power of our thoughts. Whatever our mind can conceive and believe, it will achieve… including our destiny, with God's blessings :)
