Dabtsi tsis Tua Kuv

Thaum koj nyob nraum mus los ntawm ib tug nyuaj lub sij hawm, neeg yeej tsis paub yuav hais li cas. Cov tshwm sim yog meaningless clichés los yog trite sim ciali koj. Kuv twb yeej ib txwm muaj ib qho teeb meem nrog cliché phrases- yam uas tsis yog dab tsi rau tus neeg hais tias lawv thiab tsis tau pab tus neeg hnov ​​lawv. Ua dag tej yam zoo li, "Puab tsaig" thiab "Nws yuav tau zoo dua." Tiag? Yuav ua li cas koj puas paub? Koj tsis txhob ua rau koj cov phooj ywg tej favors los ntawm kev muab lawv lub teeb, muag muag kev cia siab uas tsis rooted nyob rau hauv dab tsi. Thaum sib sib zog nqus mob hits peb yuav tsum tau pob zeb khoom tseeb mus ntxiv peb.

Thaum lub sij hawm nws bout muaj mob cancer, Christopher Hitchens voiced zoo xws li cov siab nrog ib co ntawm cov meaningless nqe lus peb muab pov nyob ib ncig ntawm. Nws siv ib tug ob peb nplooj ntawv zuj ib tug ntawm lawv nyob rau hauv nws phau ntawv, Mortality. nws hais tias, "Nyob rau hauv kev, Kuv tau me ntsis nres muab cov ntawv tshaj tawm hais tias 'txawm tsis tua kuv ua rau kuv muaj zog.' "Nws mus nyob rau hais, "Nyob rau hauv lub brute lub ntiaj teb no ... muaj tag nrho thiab muaj ntau yam uas yuav tua tau koj, tsis tua koj, thiab ces cia koj considerably weaker. "Yuav tsis koj cia li xav tias qhov kev zoo siab?

Nws suab depressing, tab sis kuv xav hais tias Hitchens yog txoj cai nyob rau hauv ib. Nws yog ib heev tau hais tias peb yuav tau mus los ntawm yooj yim tej yam uas tsuas muaj zog rau peb thiab coj peb los nyob ze rau txoj kev tuag. Kuv yuav xav txog tej yam ib tug neeg nug cov nqe lus nug, “Yuav ua li cas yuav ib yam dab tsi no txaus ntshai ua rau kuv muaj zog?” Txawm lub feem ntau zoo neeg yuav isoleucine los ntawm cov kev ntxub ntxaug ntawm peb poob lub ntiaj teb no. Optimism tsuas ciaj sia li ntawd, muaj ntau yam beatings kom txog rau thaum nws lov, thiab kev muaj tiag thaum kawg txhawm chim nws tawm. Nqe lus hais tias ib zaug tsis nyuaj ntxim hlub tam sim no zoo li tsis muaj nuj nqis. Tab sis yog lub zoo-lub ntsiab lus sentiment Hitchens rov puas muaj tseeb? Kuv xav li ntawd.

Thaum Yog muaj tseeb?

"Yuav ua li cas yuav tua tsis tau kuv ua rau kuv muaj zog" yuav muaj tseeb, tiam sis tsuas yog hais tias muaj ib yam dab tsi tshaj hauv lub neej no. Yog hais tias lub neej no, lub ntiaj teb no, thiab qhov no lub cev yog tag nrho cov muaj yog, Hitchens yog txoj cai. Nws yog ib cov lus dag. Nws yuav zoo li hais tias, "Yuav ua li cas tsis tag nrho kuv lub tsheb ua rau nws muaj zog." Qhov ntawd yog tsis. Koj yuav tau mus las mees qhov tseeb kom ntseeg tau tias. Tab sis yog hais tias peb ib ntus kev nyuaj siab muaj ib co zoo ntawm nyob mus ib txhis lub ntsiab lus nws hloov txhua yam.

Paul qhia rau peb, "Txhua yam hauj lwm ua ke rau qhov zoo ntawm cov neeg uas hlub Vajtswv thiab yog hu ua raws li nws lub hom phiaj." Nqe no yog tej zaum tsim txom, tab sis nws yog ib tug ntawm cov feem ntau zoo nkauj cov lus cog tseg nyob rau hauv tag nrho cov ntawm cov vaj. Qhov no tsis tau txhais hais tias cov ntseeg Vajtswv yog invincible. Peb txhua tus yuav ntsib kev nyuaj siab, tab sis peb yuav tsis thaum kawg yuav yeej los ntawm lawv. Txawm peb cov yeeb ncuab phem tshaj, zoo li kev txom nyem thiab kev tuag, ua peb cov phooj ywg nyob rau hauv Tswv Yexus, vim hais tias lawv thaum kawg ua hauj lwm nyob rau hauv peb haum.

Yog li ntawd yuav ua li cas raws nraim yuav cov ntsoog loj heev tej kev txom nyem ua tau kom peb muaj zog? Ntawm no yog peb txoj kev (muaj teeb meem loj sib tshooj):

1. Lawv ua rau peb nyob ntawm seb Yexus

Thaum kuv xav tias zoo li txhua yam nyob rau hauv kuv lub neej yuav zoo, kuv lub siab tam sim ntawd retreats mus rau hauv nws tus kheej-dependence. Nws yeej tsis. Kuv pib mus thov Vajtswv tsawg vim hais tias kuv subconsciously xav tias kuv tsis tsis muaj dab tsi. Kuv ua zoo siab vim hais tias kuv xav tias kuv yog vim li cas txhua yam yog yuav mus zoo. Nyob rau hauv cov lub sij hawm, Kuv tsis nco qab hais tias Vajtswv yog tus uas muab lub txiaj ntsim zoo, thiab kuv tseem xav tau Nws hais ntxiv rau kuv. Kuv tabtom piv txwv tias kuv yog hu rau tag nrho Nws cov hlub tshua.

Tab sis thaum raug kev sim tuaj peb txoj kev, lawv qhia peb peb tus kheej tsis muaj zog. Kev mob kev nkeeg nco yuav ua li cas lub cev tsis kho peb yog, nteg-offs nco ntsoov rau peb hais tias zog ua hauj lwm tsis tau lees tias dab tsi, thiab tej teeb meem rau peb nco tias peb yuav tsum Yexus nyob rau hauv txhua txhua cheeb tsam ntawm peb lub neej.

2 Khaulee 12 yog ib tug nplij siab rau kuv nyob rau hauv lub sij hawm ntawm tsis muaj zog. Paul paub hais tias Vajtswv tau muab nws ib tug mus sib rau "kom [nws] txhob siab. "Thiab nws hais tias nws boasts zoo siab hlo nyob rau hauv nws tsis muaj zog, thiab hais tias nws yog cov ntsiab lus nrog tag nrho cov hom ntawm tej kev txom nyem. Yuav ua li cas yuav Paul yuav cov ntsiab lus thiab txawm zoo siab txog nws tej kev txom nyem? Kuv xav hais tias Paul yog hais tias cov kev nyuaj siab ua kom meej hais tias Nws yuav tsum tau Vajtswv txoj kev tshav ntuj thiab lub hwj chim. Self-dependence yog tsis muaj zog, thiab nyob tos rau Khetos yog lub zog. Yog li ntawd Paul hais tias, "Thaum kuv qaug zog, ces kuv muaj zog. "

2. Lawv ua kom peb zoo li Tswv Yexus

Peb mam li tsis muaj peev xwm nyiaj mus dhau ntsoog loj heev kev nyuaj siab mus txog rau thaum peb twb paub lawm hais tias peb cov kev nplij siab thiab noj qab nyob zoo yog tsis zoo li cas yog tseem ceeb tshaj plaws. Kev nplij siab thiab kev kho mob yog tej yam zoo uas Vajtswv zoo siab muab peb. Tab sis Vajtswv lub thawj rau peb lub neej yog tias peb yuav ua zoo li Yexus. Thiab Nws yog txawm kam siv tej kev txom nyem yuav ua kom tiav uas. Henplais 12 hais tias, "[Vajtswv] disciplines peb kom peb tau zoo, uas tej zaum peb yuav muab nws dawb huv. "kev kawm nyob rau hauv Vajtswv lub gym yuav ua phem rau tej zaum, tab sis nws yuav ua kom peb muaj zog.

James 1:2 los txog rau lub siab, qhov uas nws qhia kom peb "Suav tag nrho nws kev kaj siab, kuv cov kwv tij, thaum koj ntsib kev txom nyem ntawm ntau hom…"Yog vim li cas peb yuav tsum suav nws xyiv fab yog lub zoo li Yexus Khetos cim nws ua. Peb kev txo hwj chim tseem ceeb tshaj peb zoo siab. Nws yog zoo dua rau lub cev tsis muaj zog thiab sab ntsuj plig muaj zog.

3. Lawv ua rau peb ntev mus nrog Yexus

Peb lub siab raug tsis muaj zog txaus los ntawm kev txhaum, thiab peb feem ntau nrhiav tau peb tus kheej longing rau ntau yam uas lub ntiaj teb no muaj muaj kev. Tab sis thaum lub ib ntus yeej ntawm lub ntiaj teb no yog npaum li cas los ntawm peb, peb nyob nraum nco qab hais tias lub ntiaj teb tsis yog peb tsev. Peb yog neeg pej xeem yog lwm qhov.

Kuv nyiam nyob hauv zoo cov chaw ntiav pw, thiab thaum kuv ua kuv sim coj kom zoo dua ntawm tag nrho cov perks. Tab sis, ces kuv pib nco kuv tus poj niam, thiab ces kuv twb paub lawm kuv tsis muaj cov khaub ncaws kuv meant coj, thiab ces kuv twb paub lawm chav kev pab yog hais txog ib nrab li zoo li kuv tus poj niam ua noj ua haus. Nws ua rau kuv nco hais tias qhov no lub tsev so no tsis yog kuv lub tsev. Tiag tiag hais siab nyiam ua rau kuv ntev yuav nyob rau hauv lub tsev. Lub ntiaj teb no yog tsis yog qhov uas peb yuav, thiab kev txom nyem kom peb nco qab hais tias peb lub vaj kaj siab yog lwm qhov, nrog peb tus Tswv. Muaj yuav tsis muaj tiag tiag hais siab nyiam nyob rau hauv Saum ntuj ceeb tsheej, vim hais tias peb tus Tswv yuav los siav tag nrho peb cov siab. Nws yuav tsum mob thiab ncuav Nws txoj kev tshav ntuj rau peb mus ib txhis.

Yog li ntawd tom ntej no lub sij hawm koj muaj ib tug phooj ywg yuav mus los ntawm ib tug lub sij hawm tawv, kom lawv nco tias txawm lub feem ntau tragic xwm txheej ua rau peb muaj zog. Tsis yog los ntawm kev xav zoo zoo thiab optimism, tab sis los ntawm tiag tiag kev cia siab thiab hloov. Thiab thaum twg koj nyob nraum mus los ntawm ib tug yooj yim rau lub caij, cia nws coj koj los ze zog mus rau Tswv Yexus. Tsis txhob ntshai, tus Tswv yog nrog koj.

Cov believer txoj kev cia siab yog tshaj lub qhov ntxa, thiab nyob rau hauv lub tom ntej no peb lub neej peb mam li yuav zoo ib yam li thiab nrog Nws. So even what kills us makes us stronger.

    Thanks trip, that was exactly what I needed to hear right now. Going through a super tough time and His faithfulness to comfort his children never fails to amaze me.

    Awesome piece.I will do away with the usual cliches and instead advice those in pain from today onward to look on to the rock that is higher than i..Thank you sir

  3. MichaelTeb

    This was a little surprising to read. I had never really thought about positive sayings in negative situations being a bad thing. Tab sis, dua, it’s through God’s glory that we can manage through the tough times and realize that there is something greater than this world. What doesn’t kill me, or does, makes me stronger because it draws me closer to God.

    Mr. Tripp Lee

    I woke up this morning feeling conceited and sort of untouchable believing that since most things in my life were going on okay, then I don’t need to trust God even more. I was wrong and was reminded of it quite immediately as the day was progressing on. Thank you for your insight in this manner and I pray the Lord will show me Grace and pick me up from where I am.

    Your brother in Christ

    Been a rough two years, and this post is just bursting with honest truth. Much needed for this father of three girls, and husband to an author and speaker whose message has changed from the challenges of marriage and motherhood to persevering when all seems lost.

    Your track, Kuv Zoo, has been my theme song the past two years, dawm. I don’t crank any song louder, and I couldn’t have asked God to pen words that spoke any deeper to my soul. There are moments when even the smallest thoughts of suicide crossed my mind. You sure feel like you’re at war when that’s the honest truth.

    But real hope and real change are much more worth it than giving up. That’s so true. There’s a fight to be fought for each of us. I appreciate you taking the time to pen these words, dawm. I’ll be reading through this post a few more times. Praising God for speaking through you in our earbuds, on the stage, at the pulpit, in your home, and on the web.

  7. LiamTeb

    dawm, keep writing man! Your last two posts have spoke to exactly where I’m at in life and I’ve come across them just when I needed to. God is undoubtedly working through you.

  8. CarlotaTeb

    What you said has help me to understand somethings and will mean alot to me. The message relates alot with what i have been going through for about 5 years and still going through now.Thank you Trip Lee.

  9. TendekaiTeb

    it’s true for the christian who walks by faith and not by sight.i have been in hard times; where everything was goings against my expectations.It became even harder to keep my trust in the Lord but because i knew that the pain i was experiencing was temporary and designed to make me stronger not to destroy me.i held on Jesus and here i am i prevailed.

  10. CharlesTeb

    I think you have this piece contains a lot of truths. Certainly as a believer what does kill me or does only makes me stronger. God bless you and give you the insight to speak more of His truths to His people.

    Hi Trip

    Thank you for this message. I has really encouraged me because I have been having a tough time for around 12 xyoo, battling with an unheard of illness and I really want to deepen my relationship with God. I’m at the point where nowadays I just feel numb to emotions, but I believe that the Holy Spirit is urging me to trust Jesus and depend on Him.

    Such an enlightened post and really helps you put things in perspective, just lost my brother 3 months ago to multiple myeloma and my mum is in the severe stages of dementia I know that to be able to cope I have to draw my strength from God, and rejoice that the day before he pass he let me lead him to the Lord and gave his life. Keep up the good work, you are inspiring my 18 year old son to write music and keep up with his piano, stay blessed!

    Hi Trip,

    You always have a way of putting into words what I think but am unable to write. You have many true talents. Thank you for using them for what you were called to do. Vajtswv foom koob hmoov rau koj tus kwv tij.

    Mr. Barefield…….you are a wonderful, shining example of God’s love. He has blessed you in lyric to share His message. I appreciate reading what you write, listening to your music and would love to hear you in person some time. Thanks for being obedient in sharing God’s words; always, positive, uplifting and right on point! Good Bless You Brother!

    I lost my job today and I can’t tell you how much of an answer to prayer this is! After I left I kept crying out tell me what to do tell me please. Now I know. I need to stay humble and realize the next job he gives me is from him not of my works!

  16. DebbieTeb

    Your explanation of our fathers meanings always give me understanding. Thank you Trip and please continue to help to open my eyes.

    I agree that often times when people offer up the sayings you used, they don’t always make you feel better. My family and I experienced that this summer at my cousin’s funeral. He was shot and killed by someone he considered a friend, two days before his 19th birthday. None of the so-called encouraging words were helpful because the main question we all had was, ” Why him, he was just a ‘baby?” Tab sis, afterwards we look back and see that even though it was a sad occasion it brought our family closer together and reevaluate our relationships with each other and with God. We also gained a new family member not soon after in his daughter, who could be his twin.

    This is so encouraging..God has never failed and he is not about to start with any of his children..we just need to keep hope alive and believe that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Loos 8:18 says for I reckon that the sufferings of this present times are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us..amen

    Yet again, I have been cut to heart!I am ill at the moment and I was wondering why the Lord was letting these things happened to me. In my boredom I was going through the FB pages of my favourite celebs and I came across your website. Alas! The Lord answered my prayer and spoke directly to me! (Through Trip) It’s like Trips messages are tailored just for me (That’s because the Holy Spirit is using him to minister to us)….God always rebukes me through him (his music,blog posts and sermons) I think I was focusing to much on this hotel that isn’t my home. So now I know why I am ill (what the Lord is trying to teach me through this trial)…God continue to bless you Trip Lee, it’s amazing that your ministry reaches us (the saints in Africa) and though we’ve never met, I feel like I know you personally because I can relate to everything you say. And because your music really rebukes, encourages, corrects, teaches me!….. nyob twj ywm foom koob hmoov rau!!!!!!!!!
