King Solomon writes that a successful life is one that trusts God to direct it.

Proverbs 16:3  Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.  (ESV)

Living a life of impact seems too big a goal for mere human beings!  We need power and wisdom greater than our own to transcend our puny strength and selfish tendencies . . . to inspire us!  So the Bible gives you this invitation to let the Lord give your dreams definition; commit your desires to Him, depend on His strength and wisdom and enabling.  Let Him take a red pencil to your fondest wishes and sharpen your life focus.

Eventually, your life, like a ship upon the sea, will arrive at port -- it's journey ended.  The mistakes and weary days will be mixed with sovereign hand of God who makes all things work together for good.  Charles Spurgeon wrote, "As a child opens  it's heart to a tender parent, so do thou show to God thy desires and intentions trusting to His care and providence."
