“That didn’t go like I thought it would.”
“Why does it seem like nothing is ever easy?”
“Life is too painful sometimes. “
“Why does God require us to work so hard?”
Have you heard yourself making any of these statements? We all have at times; sometimes it seems like all the time. This book is about the “grit” of life. Grit is what we frequently refer to as struggles, problems, difficulties, or trials. Grit is like coarse sandpaper. In the hands of a master carpenter, it is a tool used to shape a beautiful piece of furniture.
God is the master carpenter of our lives, and He uses grit to knock down the rough edges of our life, and shape us into a better person. Without grit we would be of little purpose to God or anyone else.
Writing with a pastor’s heart and the experience of a fellow struggler, John Duncan provides insightful commentary about the difficulties of life. John is just at home with ancient Greek philosophers as he is with modern sports heroes. Sacred Grit will give you a fresh understanding about the difficulties you face, and the possibility of hope.
John Duncan says, “I have written Sacred Grit to offer hope in Christ, trust in God’s hand, encouragement for the sweat and weariness of the journey, hope for the broken-hearted, and grace for life’s race.”
