هنگامی که برندگان مانند بازندگان نگاه

چه برندگان مانند نگاه? آیا آنها بلند یا کوتاه? سیاه یا سفید? قوی یا ضعیف? من حدس می زنم آن را در چه منظور ما بستگی دارد “برنده.”

من به داستان یک برنده مکیده شد این ماه گذشته به عنوان یک خواندن طولانی, اما بیوگرافی جذاب از مایکل جردن. شرح جزئیات به من یادآوری چرا وسواس بسیاری از مردم با او مرز قهرمان پرستی. بسیاری از چیزهایی که می توان گفت در مورد “airness خود” اما هیچ کس تا کنون می تواند ادعا او یک برنده نیست. آیا او مثل یک برنده در نگاه قبل از او آن همه حلقه قهرمانی کردم, گرچه?

همانطور که شما خواندن کتاب, آن را از دوران کودکی خود را روشن به نظر می رسید که او را به یک قهرمان. این که آیا بازی های برجسته خود را به عنوان یک پارچ لیگ کم و یا به عنوان یک بازیکن بسکتبال های جوان بود; جهش رشد مدرسه خود را بالا و یا بازی خود را برنده شوت در طول سال اول خود را با UNC.

در آن زمان من به فصل در مورد مسابقات قهرمانی او به عنوان یک گاو شیکاگو کردم, هیچ شگفتی وجود دارد. نویسنده داستان خود را در راه است که آن را روشن ساخته گفت: اردن به یک برنده متولد شد. و این چیزی است که ما او را می دانم برای: برنده شش حلقه قهرمانی, پنج MVPS, و 14 همه ظواهر ستاره (به ذکر سلطنت بلامنازع خود را در بازی های کفش های ورزشی).

این نوع از حکومت بلامنازع است که معمولا به ذهن می آید برای اولین بار از زمانی که ما فکر “برنده.” اما من می خواهم ما را به ترک اتاق را برای نوع دیگری از برنده. نوع برنده کسی که تمام گیری از یک قهرمان نیست. نوع برنده که نقاط ضعف قابل توجه بیش از نقاط قوت خود هستند. نوع برنده که به نظر می رسد بیشتر شبیه به یک بازنده گاهی اوقات.

فتح, اما فتح

من با شما صادق. در دو سال گذشته در بسیاری از زمینه ها شگفت انگیز است, اما آنها نیز بسیار سخت شده است. من یک ازدواج قوی و آغاز زندگی دو کمی لذت بردم. من تجربه لذت minsitry معنوی در یک کلیسا سالم. اما من هم با ضعف گرفتار شده است. این سخت است برای خارجی ها به گاهی اوقات به نظر می رسد چرا که من به انجام بسیاری از چیزهای خوب. اما اگر فقط شما می توانید ببینید کمی نزدیک تر.

من سندرم خستگی مزمن. میدانم, من هرگز از آن شنیده بود قبل از هر. شاید به همین دلیل آن را احساس بیشتر شبیه به یک پانچ پمپاژ از یک جلسه سازماندهی هنگامی که آن را به من ضربه. در آغاز آن را واقعا رسانهها معلول من فقط برای شش ساعت در روز بیدار بود, و خسته برای هجده دیگر. در سال آینده آن را بهتر, اما هنوز هم مرا ترک یک پوسته از آنچه که من استفاده می شود. من هفت سال گذشته با خستگی NEVERENDING زندگی می کردند. من صادقانه می تواند آخرین باری که من احساس rested- مانند باتری من فوت کرد به یاد داشته باشید, اما هرگز شارژ.

انرژی مثل سوخت که قدرت هر منطقه از زندگی ما. ما به آن نیاز دارید برای هر کار, هر مکالمه, هر فکر. و زمانی که سوخت کم است, همه چیز رنج می برد. برای برخی از دلیل, بدن من را نمی خواهد اجازه دهید من می سوخت گیری. به جای تانک من همچنان سمت راست بالا “E,” و من سعی می کنم آن را از طریق. آن را به من چپ شلی را از طریق هر منطقه از زندگی من.

من به شما این همه بگویید, برای همدردی خود را, اما برای به چالش کشیدن شما فکر می کنم چگونه. برخی ممکن است در مهلت از دست رفته نگاه, the discouraging days, the occasional tension in my marriage, و فکر می کنم, “مرد, این پسر از دست دادن در حال حاضر.” این مطمئن شوید که احساس می کند مانند از دست دادن زمانی که من به تغییر برنامه های زندگی من دوباره یا پسر من بگویید, “بابا بیش از حد خسته به بازی در حال حاضر.” من می شود دروغ گفتن اگر من گفت آن دلسرد و تلاش. هنوز, من هنوز هم ادعای پیروزی شیرین من.

خیر, من از نوع قوی مافوق بشری برنده نیست; من در واقع بسیار ضعیف هستم. من یک نوع متفاوت از برنده هستم. و من گمان بسیاری از شما بیش از حد.

نوع دیگری از برنده

من پیروز, اما نه به خاطر قدرت من است که آن را امن. پیروزی من در وجود نقاط ضعف من اتفاق می افتد, حتی گناهان من. من پیروز که دشمنان را شکست داد و برنده امن نیست; من فقط آن را دریافت کرده. من پیروزی در عیسی.

پل آن را شبیه به این در رومیان:

به عنوان آن نوشته شده است, "به خاطر خود ما کشته می شوند تمامی روز; ما به عنوان گوسفند به ذبح شود. "نه, در تمام این چیزهایی که ما بیش از فاتحان از طریق او که ما را محبت” (رومیان 8:36-37).

پل به نقل از مزمور 44, که در آن مزمور خوان گریه می کند برای کمک خدا در میان محاکمه. و پل استفاده می کند که آیه به نقطه او که هیچ چیز نمی تواند خنثیسازی آنچه خداوند برای ما در مسیح انجام.

یکی از چیزهایی که قابل توجه ترین این است که پس از ذکر چیزهای وحشتناک: کشته شدن, ذبح, پولس می گوید حتی در آن چیزهایی که ما فاتحان هستند. حتی زمانی که ما از دست دادن, ما در حال برنده شدن. حتی زمانی که ما در حال های این جهان کاهش یافته را فتح, ما باقی می ماند فاتحان از طریق عیسی. جنگ کوچک روزانه سرنوشت ما را تعیین نمی, چرا که جنگ در حال حاضر موفق شده است. آیا نیست که شما امید باور نکردنی را? اگر ما در مسیح هستیم, ما واقعا نمی توانید از دست دادن.

شاید, مثل من, شما در یک فصل از دشواری بزرگ. من می خواهم شما را با چند راه من در مورد این حقیقت فکر می کنم تشویق.

1. آیا فقط به تو نگاه

وقتی که من روز را صرف من با تمرکز بر ضعف من و گله مند در قلب من, من فقط دلسردی من خوراک دام و سوخت کاذب من ناامیدی. زمانی که من در من خیره من فکر می کنم از دست داده ام, اما زمانی که من در عیسی خیره من به یاد دارم که من برنده. هنگامی که او با شکست دادن دشمنان خود شد, او آنها را شکست از طرف ما بود.

2. آیا فقط در حال حاضر نگاه

اگر من فقط در امروز و یا این چند سال گذشته تمرکز, من وسوسه به فکر می کنم این است چگونه همیشه خواهد بود. اما عیسی همه چیز باور نکردنی برای من بر روی صلیب که من expereienced نشده است خریداری. خدا را می شناسم ناقص در حال حاضر, اما من به او کاملا مطمئن شوید بعد. او حتی به من بدن با نام تجاری جدید می دهد و پاک کردن تمام اشک های من.

ما همچنین می توانیم وسوسه می شود به تمرکز بر روی کسانی که به نظر می رسد در حال حاضر به برنده شود. کسانی که محاکمه و موانع مشابه ندارد که همیشه به نظر می رسد به ما طاعون. اما این تیم که برنده در سه ماهه سوم این است که همیشه این تیم که در پایان برنده نیست. بسیاری از مردم نظر می رسد برنده جنگ روزانه, اما آنها در کسی است که برنده جنگ اعتماد نیست. آیا فقط در حال حاضر نگاه.

پیروزی شیرین

مایکل جردن یکی از بزرگترین و محبوب ترین برندگان ما تا کنون دیده ام باقی می ماند. اما برنده بزرگتر به حال وجود دارد. و هیچ یک از ما است آنچه در آن طول می کشد تا پیروزی در جنگ خودمان; تنها مسیح می توانید انجام دهید. او همه دشمنان ما را برای ما شکست: بدون, شیطان, و مرگ خود را. تمام طول می کشد برای پیوستن به تیم و بهره مندی از برنده خود در حال گردش است از گناه و اعتماد در نجات دهنده. هر کسی, حتی ضعیف ترین در میان ما می تواند برندگان.

این حقیقتی است که در قلب من بود که من این کلمات را در نوشت “پیروزی شیرین”:

پیروز است که یکی که برنده زمین باز یافته هفتم نیست
غنائم به آنهایی که یک شروع خوب نیست
وقتی که من می گویند من برنده من این روز من هستم معنی نیست
منظورم این است که روز زمانی که آسمان خاکستری محو, پس از آن من برنده ام چون من با او سلطنت

مطمئن شوید که به انتخاب کنید تا یک کپی از “بالا آمدن” هنگامی که آن بیرون می آید 10.27.14!

    سفر, thanks for sharing your heart man. The fact you are suffering and are still able to produce such quality work is inspiring. God has really used your music to speak to my life. And I’m so grateful there are guys like you in the music (specifically hip-hop) industry who aren’t afraid of absolute truth. I hope Rise isn’t your last album, but if it is, I’m so thankful for all that you’ve taught me in your past 4 albums.

    I recently saw your performance while you were here in Denver October 9th. I had no idea about your health maladies until then. I was deeply touched when you performed your songSweet Victory.I too have been battling various physical ailments nearing a time of four years. بنابراین, your song resonanted with me, bringing me to the brink of tears. Having just read your piece on your illness, I have found that you have been suffering from the same thing I have been for some time: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It was through my physical struggles that compelled me to reliquish my pride and life of indulgence and brought me back to a renewed commitment to Christ; ultimately, I am grateful that this has happened to me. I have only met one other person who has an accurate idea of the challenges that this syndrome brings. I have been showered with the outpouring of God’s grace, prayers from others, and the unyielding commitment of my wife which helps me continue with God’s purposes as I continue my studies to go into ministry as a philosopher. We serve a God who not only intimately understands the suffering of the world, but conquered through it. Thank you for your service of God’s kingdom and disclosing details of your life.

    Thanks for being transparent, سفر. Our fam’s moving to Cambodia on January 3rd. I have a few private questions for you, hoping to ask before we leave. Could you maybe shoot me an email (to the email I used to comment here)? Looking forward to my pre-order of RISE. Really great work!!

  17. ChristyCappپاسخ

    I am so lookingforward the album!! Thats a great song to start it off with. True talent and REAL lyrics that change life.. ain’t nothinbetter than that! CFS sucks and is devastating. I got it at 18 in college when it first came out. But you can overcome it and you will..with proper diet and excercise. So there’s hope! Prayer first, water every hour. I made water my best friend to detox, cut white flour, pasta and fast food. Most of us walkinaround dehydrated and replacing it with more food. It’s through our trials that he works in us the most. In that time of being sick (still) was when God was most able do His workBest wishes to you and your album and your fam and your church & much continued success!

    Awesome insight, into what the world would have us see aslosingin this life. When in all reality we are all born losers, including those, that the world considerswinners”..! If, they don’t come to theknowledge” یا “knowingof the TRUTH, which is “عیسی”, they remain losers..! Even if, to the world, they appear to be winners..! Thanks for sharing yourweakness”, when in REALITY, you have been made STRONGE..!! Praise be to The Lord, that He would make known to us through our weakness that we are TRULY STONGE because of Knowing Him…!! Keep pressing forward my friend and brother even if The Lord grants you only His grace in the mist of your struggles..!! Praying for You..!

    I am so thankful for Sweet Victory. I listened on YouTube and it gave me my spark back. I have been struggling with discouragement. I think I lost my hope here for a few weeks. Can’t think of how else to put it. Hopelessness made me feel cut off from God and was the worst part of all. I was crying out to him, asking him to help me out of this overwhelming despondency. Your Sweet Victory lyrics spoke straight to that broken part of me and retriggered my hope. This article has also encouraged me. خدا خیلی خوب است. I was surrounded by people who love me at church but had no idea how to ask them for help, or even how to explain what I was going thru. God decided to use you, all the way from Texas. متشکرم!

    Thanks so much for this encouraging song. I cannot wait to get your new album. ما (my Parents) just adopted a little boy from Haiti. He has cerebral palsy. Although it has been a hard road with all his disabilities, I know that Jesus gives us victory over all things. I saw you in concert in Salt Lake City, UT a couple weeks ago, and you gave me such hope. متشکرم!
    And congratulations to you and the Mrs. on the new little one. Whether he (or her) is born or not. :) Love you guys!

    سفر, I am about as far from your expected crowd base as one can getCaucasian Canadian mama of five who drives a mini van! But blaring from my speakers is always some rap with a steady rotation of Trip Lee! I love the song Sweet Victory and this reality that was birthed in a new way from your health struggle resonated with me. For the last 8 years I’ve struggled with a similar weakness after the premature birth of my daughter. It is a humbling road to walk and one I still learning to trust God in. Thank you for sharing your hope and providing an example of an unashamed man of God for young men to respect and emulate. رحمت بر تو باد, فرض!

    This blog post was such a blessing to me. غالبا, I don’t feel understood by family, دوستان, or some church family on this walk, but this post help me put things in perspective and stop complaining about life. I realized that there is a blessing within our weaknesses. God truly shows his power/love for us, by helping us overcome our struggles, when we realize that He is the only way we can keep going. Thanks for the post and your song Sweet Victory is amazing!

    My daughter dedicated this song to me. I could not stop listening and crying. I Have been battling immune system issues for 15 سال. The last 3 years were near hell. But the Lord was dealing hard with my heart during that time. I finally got it and surrendered to him. I am now getting answers left and right and coming out slowly. I’m not out all the way, but I’m not as exhausted as I was. It’s amazing!!! This song……this song! Tears……

    سفر,
    I always feel a sense of joy when I hear a new song from you or even see a posted sermon or read your blog. You are inspiring! I don’t directly know what CFS is like but I have seen it. A family friends mother from my church has it. There are times when we see her then there are long stretches when we don’t. But whenever I do see her she is always joyful. When I read this I thought of her because I tell her every time how much I am inspired by her that in the midst of it all she praises Jesus. She has been victorious because she refuses to think down on the situation. You two are most definitely winners! I’m glad that you are able to share your heart with us. It means so much to me.

    سفر,
    Chronic Fatigue has plagued my life from when I was 13 یا 14 years old all the way up until only a matter of weeks ago (من هستم 28 اکنون). Years of prayer and research finally led my family and I to the answer; Diet was the root cause. Removing all grains, dairy, nightshades, preservatives and processed foods from my life has led to a complete recovery. I have never felt better.

    I don’t know if there could be a similar dietary solution for your CFS, but I wanted to let you know anyway.

    نگه دارید تا کار خوب. I’ll be praying for you.

    I love you trip lee you are a big inspiring role model to my walk in faith with god. Ive learned to trust him ive learned that the scriptures when applied to my life become blessings in so many ways. You truly inspire me and I hope that one day god will give me the opportunity to meet you and lecrae you both have helped me see life instead of death. Everyday I listen to gospel hip hop and start my morning with thanking god for waking me up then I make coffee and put my bluebuds in my ears and turn on gospel hip hop and listen study even loom up words I dont know in the dictionary at words I dont quite understand so I lnow the deeper meaning because im a deep thinker. One pray and hearts desire of mine is to talk to you in some way one day even if its just a few messages on facebook or a phone call but would be awesome to sit down with you in person and discuss allot of christian beliefs and answer each others questions and concerns. من هستم 26 years old I have a rough background and past and christ has changed me from day to day all for his glory and a greater good so I can reach out and inspire others with my testimony that shows in my actions not just in words . Im a believer. رومیان 1:16 I am unashamed of the gospel. I talk about god everday with people even my friends look up to me and have changed because of how god changed me. I really hope you see this message from me and read it through. Your story is strong and christ is in your heart always. Please if you have a moment one day text me. Call me. Write me on facebook. Email me id love to just have one conversation with you. Btw your story brought tears to my eyes. خدا برکت دهد,همسر خود را,and children in all your days and all you do.
