Does life just happens, or is it predetermined?

My neice, Tia, doing what I use to love to do as a kid!

As a very young child, I wanted to be a teacher. I remember gathering as many children as I could and having school in my parents' car porch. (Yes, car porch! That's what's we called garages, in Alabama, in the '70s.) Of course, I was always the teacher.

In high school, I gave serious thought to what I wanted to be when I grew up! It just seem natural that a person who loves book and loves to teach would become an English teacher.

Now, I am a high school teacher, and I am living my dream!

I am really pondering if life just happens, or is it predetermined?

Share your ideas, I really want to know them.

Actually life is a matter of choices!! The word of God tells us this in Deuteronomy 30:19. The word also say in psalms 139:16, that our days were already fashioned,when there were none of them. In other words God places desires on the inside of us and them trust that we will make the CHOICE to act upon them. I always tell people that whatever your purpose in life is, it's something that you love to do and would do it for free if necessary!! I LOVE teaching the word of God and empowering people (especially women)! I KNOW this is what I was created to do! My purpose in life!! I absolutely loved this blog for more reasons than one. Lol

I meant God place desires on the inside of us and then (not them) trust that we will make the choice to act upon them!! Lol
