Baadaye ya Trip Lee

Wengi wa unajua mimi kama rapa na mwimbaji, lakini ukweli ni, katika moyo Nimekuwa daima imekuwa mhubiri.

Kwa muda mrefu kama nimekuwa kufanya muziki, shauku yangu ya ndani kabisa imekuwa ya kuitangaza Injili na kutangaza wema na utukufu wa Yesu Kristo. Kwa neema ya Mungu Nimepata fursa ya kutumia muziki kwa kufanya hivyo juu ya hatua ya umma. Nimekuwa kupendwa kila pili yake na nimekuwa alijaribu kufanya hivyo kwa ufasaha. Katika kipindi cha miaka, Nimekuwa nilihisi Mungu wito mimi na kuwaandaa me sio tu kufanya muziki, lakini pia kuhubiri na kuandika.

Hiyo ni kwa nini mwaka jana niliandika Maisha Bora, kitabu kwamba dives zaidi katika ujumbe nyuma ya yangu rekodi ya cheo hicho. Pia ni kwa nini mimi alitangaza mwisho kuanguka kwamba mimi bila kuwa na kusafiri kabisa kama vile nimekuwa. Nataka kujifunza jinsi ya kuwa mchungaji mwaminifu, na kwamba inaweza tu kweli kutokea katika mazingira ya kanisa la mtaa. Hivyo mimi nina kuchukua muda wa kuwekeza katika kujifunza kutoka kwa wachungaji wacha Mungu katika kanisa langu katika Washington, DC. Bwana akipenda, kama mimi kutumika juu ya wafanyakazi katika kanisa langu, Mimi itabidi pia kuwa na uwezo wa kuendeleza zaidi ya zana nahitaji kuwatumikia kwa muda mrefu katika huduma za mitaa.

Mimi nina kumtegemea Mungu kwamba siku nzuri ni mbele, na msiwe na wasiwasi - wewe utakuwa kusikia mengi zaidi kutoka kwangu, kutoka kuandika muziki kwa kufundisha na kuhubiri. Mimi nina kushukuru kwa msaada wako njiani, na mimi kuwakaribisha kujiunga na mimi juu ya barabara mbele.

      No he’s not stepping away from music, he’s devoting more of his time to his pastoral studies and commitment to his local church

      At first I believed he was retiring. Now every time I listen to his old songs, I’m likehe’s coming back, he’s way too good not too. Still one of my favorite artists.

    Awesome it is great to see a young person who is willing to pursue god to the point of stepping down from a career in music as his main focus to putting gods word as a preacher and pastor first. You were already doing that with your music you know, now its a musicless song.

    Hey Safari,

    Who do you listen to for sermons? I see Piper’s work interwoven in Reach’s work, what other kind of figures do you listen to for inspiration/enlightenment on scripture?

    shukrani.

    Definitely understand, the calling of a shepherd is first to his immediate flock. We’re having a conference at my church New Bethel Church in Kansas City, Kansas especially dedicated to up and coming pastors. My pastor Suff. Bishop A. Glenn Brady is an excellent mentor and is passionate about pushing people into the abundance of God’s blessings for their lives. You should look him up on FB!

    Just remember that preaching is communicating the gospel, however you do that best. I have always found your music to be wonderful sermons. A lot of times we think that a ‘callmeans we have to do the standard preacher role, when what He is equipping us for is what our hands find to do.

    Just a thought.
    My the Lord bless and keep you.

    This really didn’t surprise me. I can see that’s where that dude’s heart is calling. He staying true to it and I pray for God’s best for him. And that he stays humble. It’s funny that I’m wearing hisCan I brag on my Lord?” wristband. That’s who I know will get the glory and for that I’m all with it. Let’s GO!!!!!

    I am going the distance with you Trip.
    Waebrania 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [yetu] imani; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    With you all the way trip! Luv hearing you from your music to your book and your sermons. May our Good Lord continue to bless you and your family.

    Ur music is just too good for you to put away! Your music is your sermons…..it touches alot of souls even to the point that you are unaware. It may not be reflected in album sales, Grammys, sold out shows but know that its to His glory. Like you said don’t look for that boxed up comfortable Jesus, it doesn’t exist. I will say this if the conviction or love of music digs into your soul enough, I know you will be back! Think about the missionaries who are tortured and kill in this day and age for Christ…..I know many of them thought of returning to their local churches where there is comfort! They are the brave soldiers…..warriors….i admire them more than any othercliquein Christ….They are trulyunashamed”!
