Choice and change are forever bound to one another, and together they give birth to a responsible individual. If you want to change some aspect of your life, the choices you make will make possible the change. Recently, Nancy and I made massive changes in what we eat and the time given to exercise our bodies. The result is great vitality and energy to do the things that are ours to do.
After my body experienced the heart attack, I made a commitment to take better care of myself. I concluded my mission here was not complete, and I wanted to do the work that is mine to do with vitality. God’s work deserves our best. And so I made more than a choice; I made a commitment.
The truth is most of us know exactly what to do, we just don’t do it. The choice is never made, and therefore the change never happens. The reason is that we have to go deeper than choice; more is required of us. Commitment is our call, and when we know we are here for the spiritual purpose of being a wick in God’s candle (so God’s light can shine), it is easier to make more than a choice.
