Yini Doesnt ukungibulala

Uma ubhekene nesikhathi kanzima, abantu musa njalo bazi ukuthi yini okufanele bayisho. Umphumela uba clichés leze noma imizamo trite ukuze ujabule. Bengilokhu nenkinga ujabule imisho uhlobo akusho lutho ukuba umuntu ethi kubo futhi musa empeleni ukusiza umuntu zazibezwa. izinto ezingasile like, "Chin up" futhi "It uzothola engcono." Ngempela? Wazi kanjani? Wena musa ukwenza abangane bakho noma yikuphi ukuphathwa ngendlela ethize ngokubanika ukukhanya, amathemba Fluffy ukuthi ingangeni kuzibulala ibangelwa yini. Lapho deep ubuhlungu hits sidinga rock iqiniso esiqinile ukuze asisekele.

Ngesikhathi iziqubu bakhe unomdlavuza, Christopher Hitchens uzwakalise ukukhungatheka efanayo nabanye amabinzana akusho lutho siphonsa azungeze. Uhlala amakhasi ambalwa behlasela omunye wabo encwadini yakhe, Nokufa. Uthena, "Ngokuqondene, Ngiye kancane bayeka ngokukhipha isimemezelo esithi 'noma yini akusho ukungibulala okungenza ngibe kunamandla.' "Uyaqhubeka athi, "Kuleli zwe ezinonya ngokomzimba ... kukhona zonke izinto eziningi kakhulu ezingaholela uzokubulala, musa ukubulala wena, bese akushiye kakhulu esibuthakathaka. "Awuboni nje uzizwe injabulo?

It sounds ezicindezelayo, kodwa ngicabanga Hitchens kulungile ngomqondo. Kungenzeka ukuthi singaya ngokusebenzisa izinto ezinzima kuphela buthaka futhi kusisondeza ukufa. I Ungacabanga othile obuza umbuzo, “Kungenzeka kanjani ukuba into le esabekayo enze kimi kunamandla?” Ngisho abantu emihle kakhulu kungenziwa kumelwe kuphihlizwe by unya izwe lethu awile. Nethemba ingaphumelela kuphela ukushaywa abaningi kangaka kuze inqamuka, futhi engokoqobo ekugcineni sokuqala esiminyanisa it out. Imisho ukuthi once kwakuzwakala cute manje zibonakala ezingenanzuzo. Kodwa ingabe umuzwa abanezinhloso Hitchens ehlaselwa naphakade weqiniso? ngicabanga kanjalo.

Lapho Ingabe Lokho Kuyiqiniso?

"Yini ukungibulala kwenza mina kunamandla" Kungaba njalo, kodwa kuphela uma kukhona into okudlula lokhu ukuphila. Uma lokhu kuphila, leli zwe, futhi lokhu nomzimba wonke kukhona, Hitchens kulungile. Kuyinto amanga. Kungaba ithi, "Yini ingqikithi imoto yami kwenza kube kunamandla." Yilokho engenangqondo. Wena kuzodingeka ukuba bangakushayi mkhuba iqiniso ukukholelwa ukuthi. Kodwa uma izilingo zethu zesikhashana babe uhlobo oluthile nencazelo okuphakade ishintsha yonke into.

UPawulu uyasitshela, "Zonke izinto kusebenzelana kube ngokuhle yalabo abathanda uNkulunkulu futhi ngokwenjongo yakhe." Leli vesi ngezinye izikhathi ezihlukunyeziwe, kodwa kungcono omunye izithembiso ezinhle kunazo zonke Scripture. Lokhu akusho ukuthi amaKristu engenakunqotshwa. Sonke Uyobhekana nobunzima, kodwa asikwazi ekugcineni linqotshwe kubo. Ngisho nezitha zethu ezinkulu, like ukuhlupheka nokufa, babe abangane bethu kuKristu, ngoba ekugcineni ukusebenza esisivunayo.

Ngakho indlela ncamashi la izilingo okwadala umonakalo empeleni wenze us kunamandla? Nazi izindlela ezintathu (nge ukugqagqana ephawulekayo):

1. Benza us kuya kuncika ezimisweni zama uJesu

Lapho ngizizwa sengathi yonke into ekuphileni kwami ​​into ihamba kahle, inhliziyo yami ngokushesha ezikhoselweni ku self-ithemba. It alusoze lwaphela. Ngiqala ukuba sithandaze kancane ngoba mina unganakile lokucabanga Angazi lutho. I siqhoshe ngoba ngicabanga Ngithathe isizathu konke kuhamba kahle. Ngalezo zikhathi, Ngithathe ukukhohlwa ukuthi uNkulunkulu nguye okuphe izipho ezinhle, futhi kusadingeka ukuba angisekele. Ngithathe enomuzwa wokuthi Ngingumfana esithi kubo bonke bomusa wakhe.

Kodwa lapho uvivinyo lwethu, they tshengisa us ubuthakathaka bethu siqu. Ukugula ukhumbuza kanjani zintekenteke esiyikho, ubeke-offs asikhumbuza ukuthi akukhona ukuzikhandla akuqinisekisi lutho, nezingxabano usikhumbuza ukuthi sidinga uJesu kuyo yonke indawo ekuphileni kwethu.

2 Korinte 12 Kuyaduduza kimi ezikhathini lobuthakathaka. UPawulu uyaqaphela ukuthi uNkulunkulu wamnika isilingo 'ukugcina [kuye] usivikele singangenwa uyazazisa. "Futhi uthi uqhosha asisebenzise ngenjabulo ngenxa yobuthakathaka bakhe, futhi ukuthi okuqukethwe nazo zonke izinhlobo ukulingwa. Kwakungenzeka kanjani ukuba uPawulu yokwaneliseka ngisho thokozani ngezinhlupheko zakhe? Ngicabanga uPawulu uthi la izilingo ukwenza kucace ukuthi Yena udinga umusa kaNkulunkulu namandla. Self-ithemba kuyinto ebuthakathakeni, futhi uncike uKristu ingamandla. Ngakho uPawulu uthi, "Lapho ngibuthakathaka, kulapho, yikhona nginamandla. "

2. Benza us njengoJesu

Asisoze bakwazi ukukhuthazelela ukulingwa okwadala umonakalo kuze siyaqaphela ukuthi kwenduduzo yethu nokuba nempilo enhle akukhona yini ebaluleke kakhulu. Induduzo kanye nempilo izinto ezinhle ukuthi uNkulunkulu uyakujabulela ukuba asinike. Kodwa intando kaNkulunkulu eyinhloko ngoba ukuphila kwethu wukuthi siyobe sibe njengoJesu. Futhi bazimisele ngisho nokukusiza ukuba usebenzise izilingo ukuze afeze lokho. amaHebheru 12 uthi, "[uNkulunkulu] esiyala ukuze sizuze, size sithole ukuhlanganyela ubungcwele bakhe. "neBandulo ku gym kaNkulunkulu bangase basizwise ubuhlungu, ngezinye izikhathi, kodwa kuyosenza kunamandla.

James 1:2 lefika engcondvweni, lapho yena usitshela ukuba 'Bala njengenjabulo yodwa, bafowethu, lapho nihlangabezana nokulingwa ezihlukahlukene…"Isizathu kufanele sikubheke injabulo umlingisi obunjengobukaKristu uveza. Ukuthobeka kubalulekile ezingaphezu kuka injabulo yethu. Kungcono ukuba abe buthakathaka ngokomzimba futhi siqinile ngokomoya.

3. Benza kusithathe isikhathi eside ukujayela ukuze ubuse noJesu

Izinhliziyo zethu buthaka isono, futhi sivame ukuzithola ukulangazelela okungaphezulu leli zwe ngokugcwele. Kodwa lapho izinjabulo zesikhashana zaleli zwe ithathwe kithi, siyakucela sikhunjuzwa ngokuthi uMhlaba akulona ikhaya lethu. lokuba yisakhamuzi yethu itholakala kwenye indawo.

Ngiyakuthanda ukuhlala emahhotela nice, futhi ngizama lapho ngenza ukusizakala zonke ozitholayo. Kodwa-ke ngiqala miss umkami, bese ngiyabona mina akudingeki izingubo kwakusho ngizoletha, bese Ngiyaqaphela ekamelweni inkonzo imayelana olucishe lufike ukupheka umkami. Kungikhumbuza ukuthi leli hhotela akulona ikhaya lami. Izifiso Unmet enze kungithathe isikhathi eside ukuba babe ekhaya. Lokhu akuwona umhlaba lapho singabakaJehova, nokulingwa asikhumbuza ukuthi sisepharadesi lethu kuba kwenye indawo, neNkosi yethu. Ngeke kube khona izifiso unmet Ezulwini, ngoba iNkosi yethu izoba ukwanelisa zonke izifiso zethu. Yena uzoba qeda ubuhlungu futhi uthele umusa waKhe phezu kwethu kuze kube phakade.

Ngakho ngokuzayo uma umngane ubhekene nesikhathi ezinzima, awakhumbuze ukuthi ngisho nezimo ezidabukisayo kakhulu angasiqinisa kunamandla. Not ngokusebenzisa ukucabanga ngezinto ezinhle nethemba, kodwa ngokusebenzisa ithemba langempela futhi ushintsho lwangempela. Futhi uma okuso nenkathi enzima, ake Kukusondeza kuKristu. Ungesabi, iNkosi unawe.

Ithemba okholwayo sika ngale kwethuna, futhi ekuphileni okulandelayo sizobe like Him. 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.

  2. kwena albertPhendula

    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. MichaelPhendula

    This was a little surprising to read. I had never really thought about positive sayings in negative situations being a bad thing. Kodwa, again, 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.

  4. FrankyPhendula

    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, Ngiyaphila, has been my theme song the past two years, Trip. 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, Trip. 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. LiamPhendula

    Trip, 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. CarlotaPhendula

    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. TendekaiPhendula

    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. CharlesPhendula

    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.

  11. KathrynPhendula

    Hi Trip

    Thank you for this message. I has really encouraged me because I have been having a tough time for around 12 iminyaka, 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. AmandaPhendula

    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. Qhubeka nomsebenzi oncomekayo, you are inspiring my 18 year old son to write music and keep up with his piano, stay blessed!

  13. Corrie ReynoldsPhendula

    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. UNkulunkulu akubusise mfowethu wena.

  14. DeniseSheppardPhendula

    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!

  15. BrandonPulleyPhendula

    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. DebbiePhendula

    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?” Kodwa, 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.

  19. CynthiaAghomonPhendula

    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. Roma 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!….. Hlala elibusisekile!!!!!!!!!

  21. KevinSteelePhendula

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