Trust in the LORD and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you.

Psalm 37: 3-5 NLT





As a young girl, I would use my imagination to create images of my adult life. The dreams of my future included everything from a being a doctor, to owning a bookstore, playing tennis, traveling the world to having a family. Dreaming consumed summer afternoons playing with dolls and picking household items in department store catalogs. It was a time dream big about my future. Now that I am an adult, I have started to brush off some of those aspirations. Some of them were channeled into other pursuits but on my list there are still things that resurface in my heart and mind. I am thankful that God reminds us of our dreams and allows us to plan and pursue things that we have always wanted to experience or to accomplish. Although many years have passed, I believe it is still a time to dream big. My list has matured with my age but I still want to learn to play tennis, to see the Great Wall in China and to write a book. Our passage today is a reminder of the pathway to our heart’s desire: Trusting Him, delighting in Him and committing everything we do to Him sets the stage for His opening the door to the dreams of our heart.
