Rise Book Odlomek: 7:00 A.M. Logic

Sem bil star petnajst let in moje življenje se je obrnil od znotraj navzven. Moje ime in videz ni spremenila, ampak vse ostalo pa mi je bilo. Bil sem popolnoma drugačna oseba, kot sem že leto ali dve prej. Ne mislim, kot takrat, ko gredo ljudje na faks in ponovno ustvarite sami z novimi vzdevki in osebnosti; Mislim, kaj pomembnega se je dogajalo v meni. Sem postal kristjan. Počutil sem se nova. Počutil sem živ.

Počutil sem se tako dobro, da sem imel, da ga razglasi za vsakogar, ki bi poslušati, predvsem moji najbližji prijatelji in družina. Vsi odzvali različno s spremembo me, nekateri z veseljem, drugi z upora-a enem pogovoru je vedno izstopala z mano.

Govoril sem s starejšim moškim, ki sem zelo spoštovana, navdušena, da pojasni svojo igro načrt za čast Bogu s svojim načinom življenja, posebej moja spolna čistost. Poskušal sem biti miren glede tega, vendar je bilo vedno težko držal za razburjenje v. Kot besede skočil iz svojega jezika na nenaraven hitrostjo, Imam občutek, da ni bil tako navdušen kot sem bil. Poskušal je tiho poslušati, vendar je njegov izraz na obrazu odzvala, preden je njegova usta priložnost. Zdelo se je, na pol poti zabaval in do polovice zaskrbljen.

Dal mi je zmeden pogled in mirno vprašal, "Zakaj si življenje jemljete tako resno, mladi mož? Zakaj hočeš tako težko narediti vse, kar je prav? Mladost je čas, ko si nered veliko, in to je v redu. Samo uživaj, naučiti iz teh napak, in postane resen, ko boš starejši. "

Sem presenečeno. Nekateri so morda sprejela ta nasvet kot osvobajajoče in pošten, vendar to ni, kako se mu je zdelo, da me. Zdelo se omejuje in zavajajoče. Vedel sem, kaj je rekel je bilo narobe, ampak sem bil nov Christian in sem zelo ne mogel ubesediti.

Sem razmišljal o tem izkušenj za dolgo časa, ampak vlaženja svoj ogenj, Mislim, da so prišli toploto. Nisem vedel, da še v času, toda vedel sem, da ne more samo sedeti in čakati. Sem moral vstati in živeti.

NAŠA okvari LOGIC

Bujenje je moj najmanj najljubši del vsakega dneva. Saj ne, da se ne cenim nov dan z novimi priložnostmi, vendar je vstajanje iz postelje samo nikoli ne zdi privlačna. Ever. Ko je enajst ponoči, že v postelji, je samo navaden del mojega dneva. Toda, ko je sedem zjutraj, ostal v postelji je kot zmago na loteriji.

Če pogledaš na iPhonu, boste videli, da, na žalost, Imam približno šestnajst alarme v petnajst minutnih intervalih začne tik pred 7:00 a.m. Zakaj? Zato, ker je precej nobene možnosti, da bom dobil šele po trinajstem alarm. Te Naslednje tri številke štirinajst, petnajst, in šestnajstih si moja edina priložnost, da dejansko imajo na dan.

Včasih se mi zdi, da bi lahko sam prepričal nič v teh prvih zaspani minut vsako jutro. To je bilo najhujše v mojih študentskih letih, pri plezanju iz postelje zjutraj počutil kot plezanje na Mount Everest brez nog. Lahko bi sam povedal, vse vrste laži, kot, "Ja, bi morali iti v razred, ampak ga bo res pomembno?"Ali" Vem, da sem bil pozno vsak dan v zadnjih treh tednih, ampak kaj je še en dan?"Ali" Morda moj prijatelj bo test za mene. To je vredno tvegati. "Sad, Vem. To je tisto, kar sem klic 7:00 a.m. logika.

Laž sem si rekel, je bila, da bi ostal v postelji dobro zame. Nekako bi še dodatnih pet minut ali dodatna ura izboljšati svoje življenje. Ko sem buden zdi neumno, ampak v teh prvih trenutkih vsak dan, se zdi povsem logično.

Si lahko predstavljate, kaj bi bil svet, če nihče ni vstal, dokler se jim je zdelo, kot da? Podjetja bi krat, Šole bi utrpela, Vlada bo še bolj kaotično, kot že je. Nihče ne bi imel dovolj časa, da opravi svoje delo dobro; Do takrat, ko vsi zbudil, polovica dneva bi šel. Resnica je, ne glede na to, kdaj se boste odločili za dvig iz spanca, imate samo štiriindvajset ur za delo z. Hitting gumb za dremež ne dejansko kupil nobene dodaten čas. Vaše delo le ne bo dobil storiti.

Na žalost, mnogi od nas so sprejeli 7:00 a.m. logika kot način življenja. Včasih ga imenujejo odlašanje. Ne čutimo kot delaš nekaj, kar v tem trenutku, zato smo se odločili, da ga odloži do kasneje. Včasih delamo z majhnimi stvarmi, kot ob smeti, študij za test, odgovarjanje na delo e-pošte, ali se vračajo mamino telefonski klic.

Vendar pa odlašanje dejansko ne reši ničesar, zato je slaba ideja, da odloži vsakodnevne naloge do zadnje minute. To je še slabše ideja, da odloži samo življenje.

Kaj pričakujete?

Bodimo iskreni. Naša kultura običajno ne pričakujejo veliko od ljudi, dokler ne bodo stari. (Bom ne bi užalili nikogar in vas opredeliti star.) Po mnenju mnogih, mladina ni čas za velike odgovornosti in pričakovanja. Pravijo, "Boste nositi bremena odgovornosti za preostanek svojega življenja, zato uživajte mladost, medtem ko lahko!"Ljudje se zdi, da nas pričakujejo, da bo vse življenje rahlo dokler ne bomo dosegli, da je čarobno, samovoljno starost odgovornosti. Ali je osemnajst? Ali je enaindvajset? Je trideset? Vaša domneva je tako dober, kot moj.

Sem imel pogovor z natakarjem v Phoenixu eno noč ne preveč dolgo nazaj. Ni bil veliko mlajši od mene, Verjetno je v svojih zgodnjih dvajsetih. Bil je res prijazno od trenutka, ko sem sedel, in smo končali ob dober pogovor. Sem ga vprašal vse običajne vprašanja o malih pogovora: Kje ste od? Kako dolgo ste delali tukaj? Boš pljunil v moji hrani?

Kot je odgovoril na moja vprašanja, je bilo jasno, da bi on kupil v 7:00 a.m. logika. Povedal mi je, da je živel samo v Phoenixu za nekaj mesecev. Pred tem je bil v Nevadi, pred tem Kaliforniji, in pred tem je živel na vzhodni obali. Na tej točki sem začel sprašujem, kako sem ga bi opisali na policijsko skico umetnika, samo v primeru, da je bil ubežnik neke vrste.

Toda, ko sem ga vprašal, zakaj se je preselil okoli toliko, Tukaj je tisto, kar mi je povedal: "Samo zato, ker. Ne želim, da ostanejo na enem mestu in se na kup odgovornosti. Sem mlad, moški. To je moj čas, da samo raziskati, ne bogged s kopico obveznosti. Kdo ve, Mogoče bom sam našel. "

Bil sem žalosten, a ne preseneti njegov odgovor. Seveda ni nič narobe z veliko premikanja ali self-odkritje, vendar je tam sezona v naših zgodnjih dvajsetih-ali celo naših najstniških letih, ko je življenje sploh ni pomembno? Moramo zadržati v vseh obsodbah, obveznosti, in resnost kasneje?

LAHKO ZAUPATE IT?

Slišal sem pesem drugi dan, da je ujet ta vidik popolnoma. Lirska šla, "Veseli nas,, prost, zmeden, in osamljen hkrati. "

Vem, pri čemer na Taylor Swift ni šlo tudi za ljudi, ki v preteklosti (moram vas opomni Kanye?). Ampak jaz sem pripravljen tvegati in preveri, kaj se pravi v svoji pesmi "22." Vem, da je samo zabavno pesem, tako da ne želim, da ga overanalyze. Mislim, da je uspešno ujeli čustva obeh ustanov poslušalcev in duh časa. Toda pogled je vse narobe.

Kaj to pomeni, kot pravi v pesmi, za "občutek dvaindvajset"? Pesem praznuje vrsto brezskrben, light, in enostavno mladi odraslosti, da mnogi od nas sanjal. Na žalost, predlaga, da se ugotovi, da je to sreča in svoboda v zmeden, včasih nesrečen potepanj. Ni smeri, nobene odgovornosti, samo kaotično zabavno. To je, da je 7:00 a.m. logika spet. Kdo ima čas za življenje, ko se počutite dvaindvajset? Swift ni storila tega vidika up; smo že prodali to logiko znova in znova. Vendar ga je mogoče zaupati?

Ali ni to 7:00 a.m. logika je vreden zaupanja je odvisna od tega, kdo ste in kaj ste bili ustvarjeni za. Če ste bili ustvarjeni samo za lastno zadovoljstvo in užitek, potem zavlačevanja resnično življenje kasneje lahko najboljša izbira. Če ste nič drugega kot druga oseba skrbi za sebe, potem, da se mladi natakar je logika morda zdi precej zvok. Lahko počakajte kasneje zbudil, če želite. Kaj pa, če so bili oblikovani za nekaj več?

    This is absolutely who I am RIGHT NOW! Na žalost, 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, in 6:45…what time do you think I woke up today?!? 7:00!!! Da, 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. Kot 25 year old( I am 25) or even as a 30 ali 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 ali 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!

    Haha. So true. I have the same problem. Dobra stvar. I’m looking forward to the reading the book!

  7. JanezOdgovori

    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. Hvala, TL.

  8. JoAnnaOdgovori

    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. MelyssaOdgovori

    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. The thing is, čeprav, 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, izlet. I am challenged.

  10. Brian AnthonyOdgovori

    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.. Bog požegnaj! #Unashamed #116 #DontQuit #CantwaittoreadRise

  11. DomeanicaOdgovori

    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. BurtonOdgovori

    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. JoshOdgovori

    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 JamesOdgovori

    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.
