A Quote on Commitment

Found on my cup o' Starbucks the other morning:
"The irony of commitment is that it's deeply liberating - in work, in play, in love. The act frees you form the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. to commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life."

- Anne Morriss
Starbucks customer from NYC. She describes herself as an "organization builder, restless American citizen, optimist."
I thought this was interesting as I read it - that commitment is liberating. I think that this can be quite true as once we commit to something or someone we often lose the fear that comes with walking the line on a decision or relationship.

However, the greatest liberating commitment, by far, is the commitment by God to those whom He saves from sin and into his glorious grace!
