My goal is to share with you guys and to always be transparent. I started a Bible Study on the Bible App called “Grace over Grind” and it’s convicting my heart already and I can’t wait for the next 4 days! This was tonight’s and it’s so powerful! I know I’m not the only salon owner, entrepreneur, small business owner who sometimes gets distracted in the “hustle and grind” of things! This was a great reminder! •
In the world of entrepreneurship, hustle and grind is a celebrated way of life. Some of the expressions you’ll commonly hear or read on t-shirts, mugs, and social media memes are “I’m on my grind”,“Rise and grind!” ,“Team No Sleep”, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”, “I hustle hard”, “Good things come to those who grind”...the list goes on.
Well meaning Christians have modified the idea of hustle and grind to make it more Jesus- friendly which has led to phrases such as:
Wake. Pray. Grind.
Eat. Pray. Hustle.
Hustle for Jesus.
God. Goals. Grind.
Grinding for God.
The phrases are different and they sound more spiritual, but the prevailing mindset is the same.
When you look up the definition of grind in the dictionary, it is defined as requiring much exertion and excessive hard work. Synonyms for grind include the words struggle, attempt, and strain. When you look up the definition of hustle, it is defined as making strenuous efforts to obtain especially money or business. This should not be your testimony and quite frankly it doesn’t have to be.
The cost of a hustle and grind mindset (even if you pray first or say you’re doing it for Jesus) is simply too great for Kingdom entrepreneurs. There is a supernatural realm that too many Christian business owners are failing to tap into because they are too busy grinding, running fast and furious to accomplish as much as possible and as quickly as possible.
