Keeping Dreams from Regret

Psalm 37:4-5
“Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your
heart. Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act.”

Patagonia, Spain, and the Dolomite Mountains in Italy are all on my bucket list. Dreams that we want to feel, see, and experience before we pass, are what makes that list. Many never experience their dreams, but there are many who do. What’s the difference between the ones that do and the ones that don’t?
Three things:
The cost of a plane ticket is usually lost in a milkshake, cocktail, or a froofie-drink that was bought daily. One friend said to me the other day, “All I got was a sandwich and a latte for breakfast, and it cost me ten bucks!” Cost, calories, and bad habits are great things to cut, and turn into fuel for experiencing your dreams. Cut down to one froofie drink a week, and deposit the rest in a dream-fund.
Second; delight, committing your way, and trust all roll into one concept of walking with God. When you walk with God, you go places. Instead of your dreams evaporating into regret, things you never could’ve dreamed or imagine start happening. He’s an exciting and playful Father. Use that wallpaper on your phone, laptop, or the mirror in your bathroom as an invitation to walk with God into those fantastic places.
Third, the power of belief is a force that truly moves mountains, or brings you to those mountains. Why not put my faith and dreams in the one who dreamt the Dolomite Mountains of Italy into reality? Doubt fuels regret, faith fuels dreams. Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.”
