I need to understand the meaning of DESTINY in the face of CHOICE. Should I have a choice when it has already been destined?

I have struggled over the years to understand the concept of Destiny when I am constantly been groomed to make my own choices.

How do you accept my destiny when it is the product of the choices you make?

    Jan 3 2013: This comes up in the bible. God lives in eternity, we live in time. Our destiny is shaped by the choices we make; we have, in effect, free choice. From God's perspective though; time is something He manufactured for our convenience. He sees the whole of time, & so, from His perspective, our choices are already made, & our destiny settled.
    That's my best idea, but I'm sure it is more complex.

    :-)
