Rise Buch nëmmen d'Mare Orientale: 7:00 A.M. Logik

Ech war fofzéng Joer al a mengem Liewen ass bannen eraus war. Mäi Numm a krut haten net geännert, mee soss alles iwwer mech gesot. Ech war eng komplett aner Persoun wéi ech engem Joer schonn hat oder zwee ier. Ech maachen dat net gär, wann Leit un der Uni an du-schafen selwer mat neie Spëtznimm an Perséinlechkeeten; Ech mengen eppes bedeitendst Équipe op bannenzeg vun mech fort. Ech hat eng Christian ginn. Ech seng nei. Ech hu Liewen.

Ech hu sou gudd dass ech et fir jiddereen ze verkënnegen hat deen lauschteren géif, besonnesch meng engsten Frënn a Famill. Jiddereen Etzella anescht un d'Verännerung mech-puer mat Freed, anerem mat Resistenz-awer ee Gespréich huet stung ëmmer op mech aus.

Ech war schwätz mat en ale Mann, deen ech immens respektéiert, begeeschtert fir mäi Match plangen fir gedenkt Gott mat mengem Liewen erkläre, genau meng sexuell Puritéit. Ech hu probéiert roueg doriwwer ze ginn, mä et war ëmmer schwéier meng Sammler ze schätzen an. Wéi d'Wierder aus menger Mammesprooch op eng onnatierlech lues gräifen, Ech krut de Sënn, datt hie net esou opgereegt war wéi ech war. Hien huet versicht lues ze lauschteren, mä säi Gesiicht Ausdrock Etzella virun sengem Mond eng Chance huet. Hien war léiw Finte a léiw besuergt.

Hien huet mech eng verwirrt kucken a cool gefrot, "Firwat maacht Dir Liewe sou schwéier, jonke Mann? Firwat si versichen Iech esou schwéier alles richteg ze maachen? Jugend ass d'Zäit, wou Dir vill mess an, an dat ass an der Rei. Just genéissen, léiere vun deenen Feeler, an Eescht, wann dir al kréien. "

Ech war ëmmer méi schlëmm ginn. Verschiddener hu vläicht dat Rot als net dat an éierlech geholl, mä dat ass net, wéi et op mech gefillt. Et gefillt constraining an iwwerdriwwen. Ech wosst, wat hie gesot huet falsch, mee ech war eng nei Christian an ech kéint esou net an Wierder no.

Ech fannen op deem Erfahrung fir eng laang Zäit, mä amplaz dampening mäi Feier, Ech mengen et d'Hëtzt houngen. Ech wosst net vill op der Zäit, mee ech wosst ech hätt net grad sëtzt ronderëm an wait. Ech hu bis opstinn an liewen.

EIS futtisse Logik

Palmenblieder an ass meng mannst Léifsten Deel vun all Dag. Et ass net, datt ech do net eng nei Dag mat neie Méiglechkeete appreciéieren, mä just ni aus Bett agetriichtert schéngt attraktiv. jee. Wann et d'eelef op Nuecht, am Bett agetriichtert, ass just eng normal Deel vun menger Dag. Awer wann et d'siwen am Mueren, am Bett Generatioun ass d'Bauerefänkerei wëll stäerkster.

Wann Dir kuckt, meng iPhone, Dir wäert dat gesinn, Léiffrawëschdag, Ech hunn iwwert den Aachtelsfinalë Alarm zu fofzéng-Minutt Soue Formatioun ab just virun 7:00 a.m. Firwat? Well et quasi keng Chance d'wäert ech no der Degekand Alarm opgoen. Déi nächst dräi-Nummeren véierzéng, fofzéng, an den Aachtelsfinalë-si meng eenzeg Chance fir eigentlech en Dag hunn.

Heiansdo denken ech sin selwer vun eppes zu deenen éischte Lupp Minutt vun all moies iwwerzeegen konnt. Dëst war bei sengem schlëmmste während menger Studienzäit Joer, wann moies aus dem Bett Kloteren gefillt wéi Mount Everest Kloteren ouni Been. Ech kéint mir es all Zorte vun läit, wëll, "Tjo, Dir sollt zu Klass goen, mee ass et wierklech egal?Fräi all Dag fir de leschten dräi Wochen "oder" Ech weess, Dir Strapp, mee wat d'aneren Dag?"Oder" Vläicht gëtt et menger Frëndin Test fir mech. Et ass de Risiko wäert. "Sad, Ech weess. Dat wat ech ruffen 7:00 a.m. Logik.

Déi leien ech selwer gesot huet, dass fir mech wier gutt am Bett Bleiwen. Iergendwéi eng extra fënnef Minutten oder eng extra Stonn hätt mäi Liewen verbesseren. Wann ech grouss waakreg mech schéngt et direkt, mä an deenen éischte Momenter vun all Dag schéngt et perfekt logesch.

Kann Iech virstellen, wat wëll der Welt wier, wann keen sech bis se wéi et seng? Betriber wier fantastesch, Schoulen géif leiden, d'Regierung géif souguer méi Unificatioun ginn wéi et schonn ass. Keen hätt genuch Zäit seng Aarbecht gutt ze maachen; vun der Zäit jiddereen opgestan, Halschent vum Dag wier eriwwer. D'Wourecht ass, egal wat Zäit décidéieren Dir aus Ärem DO ze klammen, Dir hutt nëmmen zwanzeg-véier Stonnen mat ze schaffen. kaaft Dir bréngt de Joost Knäppchen Sänger net tatsächlech keng Verlängerung. Är Aarbecht gëtt just net gemaach.

Leider, vill vun eis hun adoptéiert 7:00 a.m. Logik wéi eng Aart vu Liewen. Mir nennen et heiansdo get. Mir mengen net wëll eppes am Moment maacht, sou entscheeden mir et bis spéit Virsprong ugefaangen. Heiansdo maache mer et mat klenge Saachen, wéi den Dreck huelen aus, Ugereegt fir engem Test, deemno Aarbecht E-Mail'en, oder zréckgoen verklot d'Uruff.

Mee get léisen net tatsächlech eppes, also et ass eng schlecht Iddi deeglech Aufgabe bis déi lescht Minutt fir Retard. Et ass en och schlecht Iddi ze Retard Liewen selwer.

WAT KANN DIR RECHENT?

Schwätze mer éierlech sinn,. Eis Kultur geet erwaarden net normalerweis vill vu Leit bis se aal bass. (Ëch Viru iergendeen verhënneren a loosst Iech al definéieren.) Laut vill, Jugend ass net d'Zäit fir grouss Responsabilitéit oder Erwaardung. si soen, "Du wäerts de Laascht vun Responsabilitéit fir den Rescht vun Ärem Liewen Bier, sou genéisst Äre Jugend während kënnt Dir!"Vill Leit schéngen ze erwaarden eis all vum Liewen ze huelen se liicht bis mer déi magesch erreechen, willkürlech Alter vu Responsabilitéit. Ass et uechtzéng? Ass et zwanzeg-eent? Ass et drësseg? Är Bäscht ass esou gutt wéi Grouf.

Ech hat e Gespréich mat engem Comptoir zu Phoenix eng Nuecht ze net lang. Hien huet net vill méi jonk wéi mech, wahrscheinlech an seng fréi Éierlechkeet. Hie war wierklech frëndlech aus de Moment sin härzlech, a mir wënnt engem gudde Gespréich no. Ech gefrot him all déi üblech kleng-Diskussioun Froen: Vu wou kënns du? Wéi laang hues du do geschafft? Wäert Dir späiz an mäin Iessen?

Wéi hien un meng Froen Etzella, et kloer, datt hien an der kaaft wéilt 7:00 a.m. Logik. Hie sot mir, datt hien nëmmen zu Phoenix fir e puer Méint gelieft huet. Ier dat war hien am Nevada, ier dass California, an ier dass heen op de Bedarf. Op dësem Punkt ugefaang ech mech froen, wei ech him fir eng Police Skizz Artist beschreiwen wéilt, just am Fall huet hien eng fugitive vun iergendenger.

Mä wann ech him gefrot, firwat hien ëm esou vill, hei d'wat hien mir gesot: "Nemmen well. Ech wëllt net an eng Plaz fir ze iwwernuechten an op eng ganz Rëtsch vu Responsabilitéit huelen. Ech jonk, Mënsch. Et ass meng Zäit ze just Loescht, net mat enger Rëtsch vu Engagementer äussert ginn. Wien weess,, vläicht wäert ech mech fannen. "

Ech war traureg, awer net iwwerrascht duerch seng Äntwert. Natierlech do ass näischt Falsches mat vill oder Self-Entdeckung Plënner, mä ass et eng Saison an eiser fréi Éierlechkeet-oder och eis Jugend-wann Liewen net wierklech wichteg? Sollten mir op all Iwwerzeegungen handelt ugefaangen, Engagementer, an Eescht bis spéit?

KANN DIR SE TRUST?

Ech héieren engem Lidd déi aner wëssen dass dëst Perspektiv ageholl perfekt. Osbourne gaangen, "Mir si frou, fräi, duercherneen, an ustrengend der selwechter Zäit. "

Ech weess virhuelen Taylor Swift huet fir Leit an der Vergaangenheet net gutt fort (do muss ech Iech iwwer Kanye ze erënneren?). Mä ech gewëllt de Risiko ze huelen an Initiativen, wat si an hirem Lidd seet "22." Ech weess, et ass just eng fun Lidd, also ech wëll et net ze overanalyze. Ech mengen, si Gefiller vun hirem nozelauschteren erfollegräich ageholl huet an de Geescht vum Alter. Mä d'Perspektiv ass alles falsch.

Wat heescht dat, well si seet, am Lidd, fir "fillen zwanzeg-zwou"? D'Lidd feiert de Genre vun dank, Liicht, an einfach jonk Nesset dass vill vun eis eppes gedreemt. Leider, et scho seet, datt dëst Gléck a Fräiheet an duercherneen fonnt gëtt, heiansdo aarmseilegen wanderings. Et ass kee Richtung, keng Responsabilitéit-just Unificatioun Spaass. Et ass dat 7:00 a.m. Logik erëm. Wien ass Zäit fir d'Liewen, wou Dir Iech zwanzeg-zwee? Swift rauszesichen dëser Optik nohuelen; mir hu schonn eng Kéier dës Logik méi verkaaft an iwwer. Mee kann et vertraut ginn?

Ob oder net dat 7:00 a.m. Logik ass vertrauenswierdeg hänkt op wien Dir sidd a wat Dir fir sech ugeluecht. Wann Dir waren nëmmen fir Self-Zefriddenheet a Freed hunn, da richteg Liewe ausgebaut huet bis spéit kann de beschte presentéiert ginn. Wann s du bass näischt méi wéi eng aner Persoun, fir selwer sichen goen, dann Logik d'datt jonk Comptoir stoe kann schéngen flott Toun. Dir kënnt bis spéit wait ze erwächen wann Dir wëllt. Mee wat wann Dir sech fir eppes méi hunn?

    This is absolutely who I am RIGHT NOW! Léiffrawëschdag, but no need to hide. I am a single mom, full time student, own a small business, currently a staff leader for a church we planted in September 2014 (staff unpaid), and work part time at a safe home for teenage girls who are victims of sex trafficking and yes even after reading what I do I am sure you’re already exhausted! I dare myself every night before bed to wake up at least by 5:00 a.m. and set all my alarms..(yes ALL I mean the five on my phone and then the one that has a connection)always to 5:45, 6:00, 6:15, 6:30, an 6:45…what time do you think I woke up today?!? 7:00!!! Jo, I know I am so lazyBut really I am tiredmaybe too much on my plate, so I am going to cut some things down currently, but ultimately your post is so true. I would be way more productive in everything I’m involved in, most importantly I could give more time to God. How silly really it is to waste such precious time. Wéi een 25 year old( Ech sinn 25) or even as a 30 oder 40 year old we should be living everyday with a purpose because we have one, to live every day not wasted and to share His word and embrace every moment possible to grow in Him through our every day life. Thanks for sharing and looking forward to your concert in Orlando!!!

    This post came at a perfect time, as my new year’s resolution was to be more disciplined, more specifically to wake up early and be in the Word every day so that my life is continually transformed by it. Thank you for the encouragement!

    God is good. In the past weeks before school started back for my 5 year old son and he returned home from being with his mom for the holidays (even summer) every morning its ‘I’ll wake up in 20 mins,’ or whatever the excuse may be and hit the snooze button. Man before I got up for work I had already planned my entire day out and convinced myself as to why this extra sleep would help but every single time it would hurt me to stay in bed rather than help. A lot has happened in 2014 and I hit rock bottom bad! I’m just thankful God has shown me his mercy and grace to rebuild my life and start over and find the purpose he has for me on this earth because I don’t deserve it. Being more and more consistent in reading the word and understanding the our Lord and Savior Jesus is the living word it tells us that laziness, sleep, etc. will all lead to poverty, misfortune, and even death. A lot of sin has plagued my life and being lazy, getting that little extra sleep has held me back from the life God has for me. Nowadays I wake up 20 oder 30 mins before my alarm and hear that voice telling me ‘get up start early’, or even at work ‘don’t put this off do it now, put more effort into what your doing you can do better.I have fought the Lord for too long and I see doing things my way is going to put me in an early grave. I’m still not where I wanna be but have learned to give in to the spirit and just listen no matter what I am being steered to do but I’m human and I have the urge to go back to my ways. I’m afraid of letting God down, I don’t think I can fulfill his purpose for my creation, yea I’m doing better today or right now, but can I be consistent everyday all day God-willing and do my part as a Christian. Its exciting to read and learn but for me it has been scary to think I can do what God wants consistently and I go back to I’ll get with ya God tomorrow because I messed up today. Man my friend pushed me a long time ago to change what I listen to and I promise I just started listening to you Trip for a week now and you have already been an influence on my life man. I appreciate it and apologize for the long post just gotta tell ya thank you for your music and the excerpt above it’s all adding to my testimony that God is real and even though I feel lonely being a single father here in this big state of Georgia with so many people, God will work through others whether they’re arms reach or you never meet em to steer me in the right direction.

    Your a talented artist my brother I look up to you I’m25 going to be 26 this May so I hope GOD uses me in a mighty way for his GLORY and riches plus i would like to do what you and other artist do preach the GOSPEL in a way that it doesn’t sound so religious and folks turn around and walk away but can be renewed and transformed and changed for the better because that inner voice that speaks within us telling those out there, there are those like us seeking of our purpose on what GOD wants and needs from us. Thanks for making this book can’t wait to get it I’m starting to like it already!

    Encouraged. I hit the snooze button may too many times. I want to live a life that points to a good God. I need to pray and get a plan soon. Merci, TL.

  8. JoAnnaAntwort

    this is so true and profound. Have been struggling with the 7:00 a.m logic especially since starting university where it has become even more difficult to wake up in time.

  9. MelyssaAntwort

    im not joking, I needed to read this so badly right now. I’m getting ready to go to a different country for a year to do missions and tell people about JESUS, but the days leading up my leaving (which are now only 9,) have been full of me in the 7:00am logic. D'Saach ass, obwuel, that every morning when I don’t wake up and I end up sleeping entirely too late, I am so upset at myself! I know I have this 7:00am logic, but I’m not okay with it. I just don’t know what to do to change it. It seems like even when I truly do try, I still fail. Thanks for writing this, Rees. I am challenged.

  10. Brian AnthonyAntwort

    Praise God! Can’t wait to read your new bookI recently had a heart transplant on 9/29/14, and I thanked God everyday for His blessing, my point, like your last book theGood Lifewe tend to put or faith and trust in the wrong things.. God bless! #Unashamed #116 #DontQuit #CantwaittoreadRise

  11. DomeanicaAntwort

    Thank you for allowing me to dive into this excerpt from your new book. I do believe this will enlighten our culture and even start a conversation. I know some younger christians that will definitely appreciate this honest perspective as well. God bless and pray nothing, but blessings in this endeavor.

  12. BurtonAntwort

    Hmmm, 7:00 am logicI cannot say I’m NOT like this! Reading this made me think back to all the times that I wake up, look at the time, and say, “6:00? I think my first decision of the day will beto go back to sleep.I love my sleep! Not addicted, but don’t disturb me. I should instead say, “6:00? I think my first decision of the day will be to read God’s Word and pray.Thank you Trip for sharing this. So excited for your book, I’ve already pre-ordered it!

  13. JoshAntwort

    Powerful stuff Trip. Thanks for sharing what the Lord has put on your heart in this regard. Your ministry is a blessing to many, Lord bless.

  14. Emmanuella JamesAntwort

    Such a lovely post. I am such a big fan of your music. It inspired me soo much. Finding out that you are both a blogger and writer was mind-blowing, since I’m both and have been looking for someone to look up to. I really wish I could get a copy of your book.
