My encounter with several soldiers on the road to destiny has revealed to me that many of us are not fully ready for what lies ahead. The hard truth is: we cannot avoid perils. If you aren't seeing them, then consider changing your route because you might as well be taking the wrong path. They are there at every bend like the check points along our roads to destiny. There is no man who has ever journeyed this path that escaped them. On the journey of purpose, perils are not only necessary, but they are also mandatory.
