All of us have desires and dreams in one way or another on how we want our lives to be in the future. Only those that are in the mental hospital doesn't have this dreams and desires. Most of us planned carefully on it, while some just go for it on impulse. Some people would put much effort and all that they could for their dreams, while others it may mean self-denial and sacrifices just to be able to build their selves up. Others would be willing to commit any crime and while others were taking short-cuts only to find their selves trap in a "dead end" zone.
There are people who found their selves failure, blaming it on following the guidance and advices of from somebody they love. While some people found their selves futile and empty after realizing they made a mistake on their decision. Their common falling ground was regrets.
The word of God says in Psalm 127:1 a “Unless the Lord builds the house, its builder labor in vain.” We could dream for our future but it is always wise to ask for His guidance first. Answers may not come instantly, or on the time that we want it. To some it may mean to wait a while. But by doing so, we are saving ourselves from trouble that may come out from wrong decision and have to start all over again. Unless what we are doing is what God wants us to do, we will not succeed in it.
