Get a grip…
There is a big difference between being in the grip and in getting a grip.
When something has a grip on us, like an illness, we are almost powerless over it until it releases us.
However, when we get a grip on something, like our Spiritual life, we control the effect it has on us through our motives and efforts.
Experience along with good counsel from many wiser than me has taught me to get a grip on my Spiritual life instead of remaining in the grip of the worldly clamors of pride, anger, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, and sloth. (PAGLEGS)
How’s this working out for you?
As always, please ….check your experience…

Lord, let us get a grip on our relationship with You through time in Your Word and prayer, AMEN.
