GRIT

Salt-Grit

Grit is good. Last February following an ice storm my SUV was stuck at the bottom of our driveway. We’d put salt-grit on the driveway over the previous 3 months of snowfall but that day, for some reason, I was stuck.

Maybe you’re stuck right now. You’re doing something (raising kids, running a large firm, losing weight) that’s gone well for some time. But you don’t find it so easy at the moment.

No more spinning your tires.  Get some grit.

 

“How can I start moving forward again?” you ask.

  • If you’re being literal, go to central London.  Salt-grit is stored in yellow containers along the street and spread out to allow pedestrians to walk safely.
  • Ask a friend to answer these questions for you.
  • Consider where you were this time last year. What’s changed?  Did you make a decision and get off course?  Did someone else change?
  • Try Metamucil (at your own risk).
  • Pray:  Lord, I’m stuck. Help me get moving again.

    You have no idea how much I needed to hear this. I’m stuck. And sadly, asking the Lord to help me get moving again wasn’t my first choice. Thank you for the needed reminder!

    Cool, it’s always an added bonus when a post helps someone else out and not just the writer. :) We all get stuck sometimes for sure.
