Fashioning Our Own Destiny

Most of our names will probably never be read from textbooks, nor will statues be erected in our honor…Our mark probably will not be found inscribed in the tablets of history, But rest assured that our influence will go on long after this world and it’s halls of glory have passed away. Our destiny is far more than the “fifteen minutes” of fame this world has to offer. Since our birth we have been fashioning our own destiny by the daily decisions that we make. Every correct decision is a stitch in the royal garments we are sewing for our eternal coronation. You and I can control that! What a great blessing it is to be assured that through the atonement of Christ, nothing can stop us from accomplishing that most high goal. It’s in our hands! In the eternal sense then, all of us “can reach our dreams.” As I age, I like knowing that the end of who I am will not be neatly buried inside a steel coffin. No, my death will be but a change, and my existence will go on forever. Which means, my influence, my deeds, my actions have purpose not only here, but in the life to come, and that my obituary is just the beginning of a new experience for me and for all who have ever been born on this planet.  That is a glorious belief that I can live with!
