Commitment is like the needle and the thread that sow the two pieces of fabric together. For the two to become one, it requires a sowing process. It might need some cutting and shaping, and when it's sowed together, it's hard to seperate again.
It can be a marriage. No couples will just turn out everything great. We all go through ups and downs. Without a commitment relation will just fall apart when things go wrong or when the chemistry's gone missing. The cutting and shaping is the changes and compromises that we're willing to give. We all have our edges, and we all go through down times. It's in these down times that we need to sit down together and work things out. Nobody by nature would like to compromise and change. But commitment will bring us to this place of growth and maturity. Commitment will enable us to stick with it no matter what happens. And when we're through the thicks and thins we become one.
It can also be our connection with the things that we're engaged with, like a career, a business, a dream, a calling. Nothing will just automatically happen all at once. It takes a process. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's hard. Commitment will enable us through the stormy days without prematurally dropping out. It will bring us to the destiny that we've been dreaming of. Without commitment, we are just like that double-minded man(James 1:7-8), unstable in all he does, and that man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord. Commitment is that needle and thread that will sow us and our dreams into one reality. It's the key and the way to true happiness and success.
