Our lives are destined from the
beginning, all the way until the
When the Lord decides to
take us, the battles to stay,
in this world, we won't win.

The Lord has already decided
our destiny; when it's time,
He'll let us know.

but this is just not true.
We are visitors in this world, and
we are just passing through.
