WE ALL HAVE A 'DESTINY' AND IT'S WRITTEN IN HEARTS AND SOULS IN GOD'S SECRET IMPRINT
You are a person of destiny. You are destined for Heaven. You are destined to be the best you can be.
You are also unique. Period. Your greatness is not worldly greatness.
And so your soul bears God's secret imprint.
You could also call it a road map. Let's talk about destiny, which also means destination. Everyone has one. We are not talking about being a great Hollywood star or a famous athlete. We are talking about accomplishing God's Plan in the ordinary walk of life. To God, this is true greatness!
That plan was written before you were born. It's etched into your deepest subconscious. Somewhere, deep down, you know what you are supposed to do; you know where you are supposed to go; you know the plan for your life. But it would defeat the "test" of life to know it consciously.
And so it is hidden but for snatches we obtain in prayer when our souls at a deep level gain contact with God.
The Lord has a right destiny in mind for each of us and the trick is to reach it with the innocence and purity and wonderment -- the love -- of a child. When we do that, our task has been completed.
If we can do that, we can gain direct heavenly entry!
Life is the road. There are turns. There are curves. There are ravines. There are confusing road signs. There is dirt. There are deserts. Also, there are mountains. We can make it over a mountain or fall off the summit (or never reach it).
There are creatures at roadside.

Good post to start the day.
Think it’s possible Obama will go to hell if he keeps up his evil agenda?
Mind you, just specualting. It’s not my place to send him there although, I’d sure like to.
Tell me, what’s Obama’s destiny?
Will he repent?
Or continue riding high, drunk with power, hatred and lies?
BTW, it is an excellent article and right on.
I’m ANGRY at Obama care directed to the elderly.
I just finished reading about Obama care and what I read is pure evil. It’s reasurring to know that God is really in control and Christians have much to look forward to. I pray He comes soon and takes His own away.
Thank you!! Very inspiring & uplifting.
“God has prepared many pleasant inns along the road of life, but He never wants us to mistake them for home.”
If he was saved, his agenda would be different than it is now. Yes, he will go to hell if he doesn’t receive the Lord Jesus Christ into his life and begin to do what God has called him to do.
Good one, boatbums. Thanks.
Very interesting. I know we all have a destiny but I’m not convinced we all know what it is. I sure don’t.
How do you know that?
God does not want us to find him where he has not promised to be for us. He has promised to be for us in his Word and Sacraments. Trying to find God outside of these, one will only find the Devil. There is nothing Satan wants more than for us to look for God in all the wrong places. You are not going to find God in prayer or in meditation, but you will find him in his Word.
How do you know he promised that?
He said so. This is my body and blood shed FOR YOU for the forgiveness of sins.
He did? How do you know that?
From his Word. I already said that. What part of that don’t you understand?
How do you know it's his Word?
