Destiny, Fate and the Will of God

There is a question that rings in my ears.  It’s a question of control.  That defines who we are.  They say that fate defines who we are and that destiny reveals who we will become.  They say that our lives are already mapped out before us.  Is it our will or the will of God? 

As I watched the new Disney Pixar movie Brave over the weekend, I smiled.  The movie is more than a story about family and courage, but its a lesson in discovering who you are.  We have a choice to be defined by what others expect us to be or have the courage to find our own destiny. 

How do we, as Christians, respond to this?  Do we not believe that God will lead our feet?  Are we not seeking after the will of God?  Where does that leave fate and destiny?  Is it something different?  Or are they all the same? 

In the words of a children’s movie:  Are we brave enough to find our path within us?  Whatever that is, the will of God, fate or destiny.  All defined by God.  All a choice that we have to make. 

So, does it really matter?  As long as we are putting all our focus on God, it doesn’t really matter.  We follow our faith and our faith leads us to God. 

Just some thoughts…

God Bless and PEACE
