Choices…

Posted by ehvogel on June 18, 2011

Our lives are the result of our choices. Like them or not, they are what they are. We live or die by them, but, most importantly, they define who we are.

When we decide to enter into marriage, we are emboldened by that commitment. When we are forced to end a marriage, we are dismayed by our original choice. Why?

We choose to do what we believe in. In a marriage contract, we assume that the other party believes as we do. Our society delivers the hopeless verdict when we are wrong. It is a societal paradigm that we are unable to escape. Who is wrong, and who is right? Society deems it as unanswerable. The default judgment is both, so neither is guilty.

For a lot of us, we continue to look for the ability to make choices that demonstrate our resolve. It may be multiple choices that present themselves to us, but we recognize that our choices have consequences as we pursue those that we deem to have merit.

When we choose to pursue a certain path, our resolve is the only thing that hinders our achievement. There will always be an end-game that we must accept or reject. It defines our goals.

Do we choose to go half-way to our goal? That is not empowering. It may give us some benefits along the way, but it diminishes us.

Who has the strength to pursue their goals to fruition? Did Thomas Edison give up after countless attempts to create the light bulb? Did Steven Jobs give up when he was turned away from the very company he founded? Did Rush Limbaugh throw in the towel when he was told that his hearing was gone? The vanguard of success is perseverance. Pure and simple.

We all have roadblocks that stand in the way of our goals. What makes us unique is our resolve in transcending those roadblocks.

I have a challenge for Sarah Palin. Continue your quest. I know that you harbored a conviction that you could make a difference. Prove it! Everyone likes a winner and I have a feeling that your goals have not yet been met.

  1. Edward J. Wassell said

    Sarah — It is difficult to conceive of a better time to run. It is difficult to see a better time four years from now or even later. God has placed you here and now. His Divine Providence has recently blest you with an outstanding bus tour, the e-mail flap carrying you to new heights and girding you with an armor of grace that even a demonically inspired media no longer seems able to penetrate and with the soon to be released Bannon film that will propel to an earthly apex of popularity, when will there be a better time?

    In Jesus time on earth His miracles were public, for all to see [the blind seeing, the lame walking, the deaf hearing & Lazarus called out of his tomb]. He is still with us as He promised but now His miracles are quiet and worked through others – us. To me all three of the first paragraph have the fingers of God all about them. He seems to be saying, Sarah, I have prepared you and shown you the way. Now Sarah, step into the breach and know that I am with you.
