1 Destiny Finding and Living your God-given Destiny

2 God has a dream of a different kind of world, but that world won't happen in a dramatic kind of weak moment. It will happen, because each of us has agreed that we want to help God realize God's dream. We really can make a difference, if we will stand for a little truth and a little goodness; and maybe...have zero tolerance for intolerance. God says, ‘I have no one except you - and I believe in you.’
