Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Fate is predictably understood to be a predetermined course of actions beyond human control.
A typical response to belief in fate is resignation...if we can’t change destiny, then why even try?
What will be, will be.
Divine Providence invites each of us to live our life according to Our Father's plan patiently emerging into our life day, after day guiding us to reflect all that He has provided for our well being until our journey's completion.
Our Father has chosen to give each of us (no exceptions) free will, creating a moral universe in which the law of cause-and-effect reveals its consequences through the choices that we make. There are no “accidents” in the universe.
Wise sages inform us that coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous whenever we are faced with one of those bizarre moments when our innermost inspiration drives us in a particular direction. Convenient, even synchronistic accidents, can intervene encouraging us towards making choices that earlier in the day would have appeared contrary to our ambitions. Curiosity has its own reason for existing enabling us to blaze new trails opening up fresh opportunities.
Our Father blesses all who follow His counselling, remaining patient with those who reject His guidance, always waiting at our side assisting us return to His loving care.
Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favour to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all.~ Ecclesiastes 9:11
