Kaj ne Kill Me

Ko greste skozi težke čase, ljudje vedno ne vem, kaj naj rečem. Rezultat je nesmiselnih klišeje ali Banalan poskuse, da vas bo razveselilo. Vedno sem imel težave s klišejem phrases- vrste, ki ne pomeni ničesar, da bi osebe, ki jih rekel in se dejansko ne pomaga osebi, ki jih sluha. Neumne stvari, kot so, "Chin up" in "To bo bolje." Res? Kako veš? Ne naredite svoje prijatelje uslug, ki jim daje svetlobo, puhasto upa, da ne izvirajo iz nič. Ko globoke bolečine zadetki moramo skala trdna resnica, da nas ohranjajo.

V času njegovega dvoboja z rakom, Christopher Hitchens izrazil podobno nezadovoljstvo z nekaj nesmiselnih stavkov smo vrgel okrog. Preživi nekaj strani napadajo enega od njih v svoji knjigi, Mortality. On reče, "Še posebej, Imam nekoliko ustavil izdajo napoved, da "kar te ne ubije me naredi me močnejši.« Dodal je še povedal, "V surovo fizičnem svetu ... pa so vse preveč stvari, ki vas lahko ubije, te ne ubije, in potem pustil precej šibkejši. "Ne moreš radosti?

Sliši se depresivno, ampak mislim, da Hitchens je prav v smislu. Povsem mogoče je, da bomo lahko šli skozi težke stvari, ki nas le slabijo in nas približali na smrt. Lahko si predstavljam nekoga, ki postavlja vprašanja, “Kako lahko nekaj strašnega to, da me močnejši?” Tudi najbolj pozitivni ljudje lahko razčlenjena po brutalnosti našega padlega sveta. Optimizem lahko preživi le toliko pretepanja, dokler se ne zlomi, in realnost končno dušilke ven. Besedne zveze, ki je nekoč zvenel srčkan zdaj zdi brez vrednosti. Vendar je dobro, kar pomeni, sentiment Hitchens napadel kdaj res? mislim tako.

Ko Je res?

"Kar me ne ubije me naredi močnejšo" more biti res, vendar le, če obstaja nekaj, kar presega to življenje. Če to življenje, ta svet, in ta organ, so vse, kar je, Hitchens je prav. To je laž. Bilo bi, kot pravijo,, "Kaj ne znaša moj avto zaradi česar je močnejši." To je smešno. To bi morali prezreti resnico domnevajo, da. Ampak, če imajo naši začasne poskuse nekakšne večne smislu se vse spremeni.

Paul nam pove,, "Vse stvari delujejo skupaj v dobro tistih, ki ljubijo Boga in so poklicani po njegovem načrtu.« Ta verz je včasih zlorabljena, ampak to je ena izmed najlepših obljub v vseh pisma. To ne pomeni, da so kristjani nepremagljiv. Vse nas bo obraz poskusov, vendar ne moremo dokončno poraženi, ki so jih. Tudi naši najhujši sovražniki, kot trpljenje in smrt, postanejo naši prijatelji v Kristusu, zato, ker v končni fazi delajo v našo korist.

Torej, kako točno lahko te uničujoče poskusi dejansko nas krepijo? Tu so tri načine (z znatno prekrivanje):

1. Zaradi njih nam je odvisna od Jezusa

Ko Počutim se, kot vse, kar je v mojem življenju gre dobro, moje srce takoj zateka v lastno odvisnost. Zato nikoli ne uspe. Začnem moliti manj, ker sem podzavestno Predvidevam, da ne manjka ničesar. Sem postal ponosen, ker mislim, da sem razlog, vse je šlo dobro. V teh časih, Sem smemo pozabiti, da je Bog darovalec dobrih daril, in še vedno potrebujem ga, da mi vzdrževati. Jaz sem ob predpostavki, da sem upravičen do uživanja vseh njegovega usmiljenja.

Toda, ko poskusi priti naš način, se nam pokaže svoje slabosti. Bolezen opominja, kako krhka smo, čakanju nas opominjajo, da trdo delo, ne zagotavlja ničesar, in konfliktov nas opominja, da moramo Jezusa na vseh področjih našega življenja.

2 Corinthians 12 je v tolažbo mi je v času šibkosti. Paul se zaveda, da mu je Bog dal poskus, da "vodi [ga] od postaja domišljav. «In on pravi, da se ponaša z veseljem v svoji šibkosti, in da je zadovoljen z vsemi vrstami poskusov. Kako bi Paul biti zadovoljni in celo vesela njegovih poskusov? Mislim, da Paul je rekel, da so ti poskusi pojasniti, da je treba Božjo milost in moč. Self-odvisnost je slabost, in odvisnost od Kristusa je moč. Tako Paul pravi, "Ko sem slab, potem sem močna. "

2. So nas bolj kot Jezus

Nikoli ne bomo mogli prenašati uničujoče poskusov, dokler ne bomo spoznali, da naše udobje in dobro zdravje ni tisto, kar je najbolj pomembno. Udobje in zdravje so dobre stvari, ki jih je Bog navdušuje, da nam. Toda Božja primarni volja za naše življenje, da bi bili kot Jezus. In On je celo pripravljeni za uporabo poskusov doseči, da. Hebrejcem 12 pravi, "[Bog] nas discipline za naše dobro, da bomo lahko delijo njegovo svetost. "lahko treningi v Božjem telovadnici boli včasih, vendar je nas močnejše.

James 1:2 pride na misel, kjer nam pove, da "Count ji vse veselje, moji bratje, ko se srečate z različnimi preizkušnjami…"Razlog, da bi ga morali računati veselje je Kristus lik ki ga proizvaja. Our ponižnost je bolj pomembna od naše sreče. To je bolje, da je fizično šibka in duhovno močan.

3. So nas dolgo, da se z Jezusom

Naša srca so oslabljene z grehom, in smo pogosto znajdemo hrepenenje več o tem, kaj je ta svet lahko ponudi. Toda, ko se začasne radosti tega sveta sprejeti od nas, smo opozarjamo, da je Zemlja ni naš dom. Naše državljanstvo je drugje.

I love bivanje v lepih hotelih, in ko sem naredil sem poskušal izkoristiti vse perks. Potem pa sem začel pogrešam svojo ženo, nato pa se zavedam, nimam obleko sem mislila, da bi, nato pa se zavedam, postrežba v sobo, je približno pol tako dober, kot kuhanje moje žene. To me spominja, da je ta hotel ni moj dom. Neizpolnjene želje, da me dolgo, da doma. Ta zemlja ni, če spadamo, in poskusi nas opominjajo, da je naš raj drugje, z našega Gospoda. Ne bo nobenih neizpolnjenih želja v nebesih, ker bo Gospod zadovoljiti vse naše hrepenenja. On bo odpravila bolečine in prelijemo Njegovo milost od nas za vedno.

Torej, naslednjič, ko imate prijatelja, gre skozi težko obdobje, jih spomnil, da lahko tudi najbolj tragičnih okoliščin nas močnejše. Ne preko pozitivnega razmišljanja in optimizma, ampak prek realnega upanja in resnične spremembe. In ko ste šli skozi težko sezono, dovolite, da vas približati Kristusu. Ne bojte, Gospod je s teboj.

upanje vernika je onkraj groba, in v naslednjem življenju bomo všeč in z njim. 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. MichaelOdgovori

    This was a little surprising to read. I had never really thought about positive sayings in negative situations being a bad thing. vendar, ponovno, 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, V redu sem, has been my theme song the past two years, izlet. 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, izlet. 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.

    izlet, 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. CarlotaOdgovori

    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. TendekaiOdgovori

    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. CharlesOdgovori

    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 let, 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.

  12. AmandaOdgovori

    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!

  13. Corrie ReynoldsOdgovori

    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. God bless you brother.

  14. DeniseSheppardOdgovori

    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!

    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?” vendar, 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. Rimljani 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!….. Ostani blagoslovljen!!!!!!!!!

    Our humility is more important than our happiness.That really hit me man. Keep making that good music and God bless.
