“Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”

‭‭James‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


James talked about a single-minded stick-to-itiveness come hell or high water. In a word: grit.


Grit is the place where passion and perseverance meet. It’s resilience in the face of rejection, fortitude in the face of fear. It’s a no guts, no glory approach to life, even in the face of impossible odds.


I certainly believe in the power of prayer. We must pray like it depends on God. But I also believe that a good old-fashioned work ethic honors God. So you have to work like it depends on you.


“What does not kill me,” said Friedrich Nietzsche, “strengthens me.”


It takes tremendous grit to go after your dreams. It takes tremendous grit to fight for whats right.


It takes a God Man, It takes a God Chic with grit to stay in the battle.


And that’s precisely the point!
