Our Destiny

What is our destiny, we sometimes wonder? Why are we here in this world of doubt, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. When we came into this world - we came crying, not knowing what our future would hold. Some of us were loved from the start. Some of us didn't have that luck. One day we grew up and found out that life is hard. If we have a good life - we are thankful to God. If we don't - we curse the day we were born. If we are rich, we can't rest easy. We have to be on guard night and day. I think it doesn't pay. So what is my destiny, we ask ourselves? We think of that as we are getting old. We know how we came into this world, but we don't know, how we are going to leave. Our destiny we can not see. Our destiny is up to Thee...

    So many questions surrounding our presence and the why's and wherefore's of existence. Valid questions look for answers and are somehow hard to find. Thanks for sharing this.
