    There is this belief that certain things in this life are a given, that no matter what anyone does, they will not be able to stop them from occurring. This is the belief that somethings have been destined to be or to occur, regardless of what we do. Some people however argue that nothing in this life is set in stone, we humans are the ones that make things happen and not happen.

    I personally believe in destiny, I believe that there exist a higher power that decides to make somethings a given and certain to happen. What about you, do you believe in destiny and if you do, how do you think it works?

    I believe there are things that are meant to come but that you can alter that destiny with free will. I do not believe that someone is destined to be homeless or sick but that actions cause reactions. Destiny can attempt to redirect when free will alters the plan but this can fail and destiny is changed for that person and everyone destined to be affected by that choice.

    I agree with Wikdfury that some things are meant to happen but can be altered. I believe that God has a plan for all of us, even if we alter it, that allows us to have a choice but also help to keep us on track. Our free will plays a major role in this because it allows us to make our own decisions that affect our future. Predestination is when everything has previously been chosen and no free will is involved. So, yes I do believe that there is some sort of plan in action but not predestined.

    I believe in destiny designed by God. Everything that happens in our live have been planned out by God. Before we are born from eternity past we are already in the mind of God.

    God has already destined who will be the person I will marry. Who and how many children we will have. God has already planned when I will be born and when I will die. I believe in the destiny of God for me. All will really come to pass.

    My belief in regards to destiny is this - for everything we do, even the slightest actions, there is a greater consequence. Yes, I believe in destiny and in God's plan but I also believe that our choices are what define the way in which our destiny plays out.

    My life is already predestined by the Almighty God.He has also given me power to ask Him through prayer to change anything in me that the nature views as impossible.He gives me strength and knowledge to conquer anything that I set my mind on in reaching my destiny.Through faith,God uses the right people and connects me with them so that they can guide me in this journey of life to reach where I want to go.

    I believe in destiny,
    I don't believe in coincidences. I've experienced destiny a few times and that may seem silly, but I think it's just a matter of open-mindedness : you believe in it or you don't.

    I also believe in destiny. Why are some people born with a disability and some people have al the luck in live? Positivity do not change this. They can not choose because they are born that way. If you can choose, you are very lucky. I think there is a lot you can change in your life but some things you can not. No mather what you do it can not change the path you are walking. I think when it is your time to shine then you can enjoy it and be gratefull for it. For others who are less fortunate must accept what you can not change. Suffering is in every life and everyone has to deal with it on his time. That is the way life is.
