How to use grip in a sentence?

  1. Christen Kuikoua:

    Though a Christian, I wasn't the perfect example. I struggled with lying, stealing, and the dangerous grip of lust, especially through pornography. I didn't overcome these by my own strength, but through God's mercy. It's never too late to seek help. As long as you can breathe, there is hope. My story is not just someone else's; it's mine. It's not just someone else's struggle; it's mine. Let my journey inspire your growth.

  2. Michael Waldorf:

    He's a big guy, he was not letting go. He had a death grip on her. And he was not letting go, i saw it as an emergency. She needed our help and she needed it right away.

  3. Marsha Blackburn:

    I'm proud to partner with Senators Marsha Blackburn and Amy Klobuchar in this breakthrough blow against Big Tech bullying. This bipartisan bill will help break these tech giants' ironclad grip, open the app economy to new competitors, and give mobile users more control over their own devices.

  4. Frank Pope:

    Any time you get people who are hungry and without other options you've got a security situation. ( In) Northern Kenya we're bordered by South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia, all of which are still in the grip of conflict that spews small arms into this ecosystem, so you've got a lot of weapons up here and increasing hunger so, yeah, I'd say that's an increasing security concern.

  5. Julie Chung:

    They're fearful of losing, they're fearful of the free and fair, transparent system. They're fearful of losing their grip on power. As such, that fear of democracy, I think, has contributed to triggering these kinds of actions, repressive actions, because they have no confidence in their own ability to have the people support them.
