Destiny

A rich and mighty Persian once walked in his garden with one of his servants.

The servant cried that he had just encountered Death, who had threatened him.

He begged his master to give him his fastest horse so that he could make haste and flee to Teheran, which he could reach that same evening.

The master consented and the servant galloped off on the horse.

On returning to his house the master himself met Death, and questioned him,

"Why did you terrify and threaten my servant?"

"I did not threaten him; I only showed my surprise in still finding him here when I planned to meet him tonight in Teheran," said Death.

A fool believes he or she has control of their life. How many times have you said, "if only I had done this, or not done that, my life would be so much better?" Really? It is only foolish pride and arrogance that causes us to think we have so much control over our personal destinies.

God loves you where you are now. Enjoy the journey and trust in the One who is truly in control!

"Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you don't even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes." James 4:13-14
