What do you dream about?

I see a young girl who has dreams when I look at this picture. What are those dreams? They might be big or small dreams, Dreams for herself or for her family, but my gut tells me that they’re important dreams.
“Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Psalm 37:4 English Standard Version
It’s one thing to hear these words from God but it’s another to believe them.
Maybe the problem is with our hearts and what they desire. The first part of the first is the key to understanding the psalm. The psalmist calls us to delight in the Lord, not in our pleasures or wants. When we find pleasure in the One who has given everything for us, we’ll find ourselves dreaming about what he desires for us.
So, it’s okay to dream especially when those dreams are rooted in the God who takes delight in us.
