Examples of destiny in a Sentence

  1. Anthony Liccione:

    Had it not been for empty, there would have been nothing to fill. Nothing to struggle with,  strive for or dream.

Vigilance is the empty, that pushes all our nothings into something.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    There is no substitute for/to your God-given destiny. So, if you've not yet discovered yours already. It's high time you discover and fulfill it wholly. For, you can't/won't live a fulfilled life until you discover and fulfill your God-given destiny.
