Do we really create our own reality & future or is this predetermined by God, or destiny we must...
I think it can seem like life is predetermined, especially when things are going wrong. It seems like the odds are sometimes stacked against us, and I have found myself questioning what lesson I am supposed to learn when this happens. But, if life really were predetermined, then there would be little point in trying to do anything for ouselves, believing we have no control over our own lives.
Listen,God made it clear he doesn't make our choices,but he does encourage us to do good.We shape our own destiny and whatever happens to us is because of our mistakes and lack of knowledge.
we do what we do and this is what determines our reality, our future and how others treat us. it has nothing to do with some god .
I believe that God does have a plan for us, and wants us to fulfill our human potential while on this earth. The greatest difference between us and all other life forms, is our ability to 'choose.'
Throughout our days, weeks, months, and years, we get to choose our direction. You, yourself, can decide to change courses at this very moment. Of course, you cannot immediately change your situations, but you CAN absolutely change your 'direction' right now! That is a very empowering thought, isn't it?
So, you can review your life up to this point, and you can decide what areas you wish to change. Write down some of your most significant achievements and what you are already proud of, and use this list as a positive stepping stone to more goals. Then take even the smallest steps toward your new directions. Keep them fresh in your mind and reveiw daily. When something negative happens or when a roadblock comes your way, do your best to adapt and be flexible, knowing that it's not so much what happens to you, but what is most important, is the way you handle life's challenges.
If you are a person of faith, then by all means, pray to God about it, asking for his guidance. You do not have to continue in the same directions, or do the same things you did yesterday. The choices are all yours - Best Wishes!

Is it true that ONLY the ELECT as in the CHOSEN people will be saved?I have an ongoing debated with a friend of mine and I disagree with her premise. I believe God loves ALL people. He wants ALL people to be saved and not JUST the ELECT or shall we say CHOSEN. I have a hard time...

In my own belief and opinion, our lifetime partner was preset before we were born. That God created and prepared a person for us when the perfect time comes. And when that time comes, your choice and decision do matter depending whether you would accomplish God's plan or not. It's true that we are...

Do you think our life here on earth is predetermined by us before we are even born?Some think we plot out a chart before we arrive here giving ourselves 6 exit points during our lifetime. If we do not take any of the exit points (near death experiences) when we get to the last one, our time...

Early this morning a young Marine died while crossing the street here in New York City. This tragedy got me thinking, "this kid could have died while serving time overseas in a war torn nation, but instead died on American soil while crossing the street." Was it as religious people say,...
