Don’t Grind, Don’t Hustle, Flow With God


It had to be a Wednesday prayer call where I first shared Don’t Grind, Don’t Hustle, Flow With God. It wasn’t new to me, the concept that is. I never felt like I fit in with those who are always talking about hustling and grinding. That wasn’t me. When I put God’s plan into action there is an ease and a flow about it that it almost seems effortless. It’s not rough, pushy or aggressive or even abrasive as the definition describes. So when He said to create these tees I was excited. I really wanted to get people on board with the mindset of “flowing with God.”

In the process I learned 3 things:

1. When you flow with God you aren’t trying to figure out how to make things happen. You leave that up to Him and He’s all right with taking on the task. Some people are so used to everything requiring “hard work” so this is more difficult for them to get, but not impossible.

2. Grinding is the equivalent of BUSY and we all know that “busy” isn’t necessarily productivity. When I flow with God I find myself doing things that are purposeful and bring me to the end goal–whatever He says that is. That’s how you f-l-o-w.

3. Hustling while frequently used in slang terms to mean: “to earn one’s living by illicit or unethical means” – I had to realize that’s so NOT me. And you may be saying, “That’s not what I mean when I say “hustle”, but words are important and I refuse to even put it in the atmosphere that I’m hustling anything or anybody. That makes it easier again to do “only” what He says and leave it up to Him to bring forth the increase.

Are you grinding? Are you hustling? I urge you today to change your vocabulary.

FLOW WITH GOD instead.
