勝者は敗者のように見たとき

受賞者は次のように何を求めますか? 彼らは背の高い、または不足しています? 黒が?それでも白が? 強いまたは弱いです? 私はそれは私たちが何を意味するかに依存すると思います “勝者。”

長いを読むように私はこの過去の月1勝者の話に吸い込まれました, しかし、マイケル・ジョーダンの係合伝記. 彼と一緒に多くの人々の強迫観念は、英雄崇拝に接しなぜ詳細な説明は、私を思い出しました. 多くのものは約言うことができます “彼airness” 誰もが今まで彼が勝者ではないと主張することができませんでした. 彼はこれらすべてのチャンピオンリングを持って前に、彼は勝者のようになりました, しかし?

あなたは本を読むように, 彼がチャンピオンになることを彼の幼年期から明らかなように見えました. それは少しリーグの投手として、またはジュニア代表チームのバスケットボール選手としての彼の卓越したプレーであったかどうか; 彼の高校の成長スパートまたはUNCとの彼の新入生年の間に彼のゲームウイニングショット.

私はシカゴ・ブルズとしての彼の選手権についての章に着いたころには, 全く驚きはありませんでした. 著者は、それが明らかにした方法で彼の話をしました: ヨルダンは、勝者になるために生まれてきました. そして、それは我々が彼を知っているものです: 6チャンピオンリングを獲得, 5のMVP, そして 14 オールスター出演 (運動靴の試合で彼の揺るぎない治世に言及していません).

比類のない治世のこの種のは、我々が考えるとき、通常、最初に頭に浮かぶものです “勝者。” しかし、私は、私たちは勝者の別の種類の余地を残しておきたいです. チャンピオンのすべての素質を持っていません勝者の種類. その弱点彼の強みよりも注目すべきである勝者の種類. 時々より敗者のように見える勝者の種類.

征服, しかし、征服

私はあなたに正直になるだろう. 最後の2年間は、多くの点で素晴​​らしいされています, 彼らはまた、かなり難しいされてきました. 私は強力な結婚と二つの小さな命の始まりを楽しんできました. 私は健康教会で司牧minsitryの喜びを体験してきました. しかし、私はまた、弱さに悩まされてきました. 私は非常に多くの良いことをやっているように見えるので、部外者が時々言うことは難しいです. しかし、唯一の場合は、もう少し近くに見ることができました.

私は慢性疲労症候群を持っています. 知っている, 私はどちらかの前にそれを聞いたことがありませんでした. それは私を打ったとき、それはより組織試合よりも吸盤パンチのように感じた理由は多分それはです. 最初はそれが本当に障害者ME-は、私は1日6時間のためにだけ目を覚ましました, および他の18のために尽くさ. 来年にそれは良くありませんでした, それはまだ私に私がために使用するものの殻を残しました. 私はネバーエンディング疲労で過去7年間住んでいました. 私は正直に私のバッテリーが死んだように私はrested-感じた最後の時間を思い出すことができません, しかし、再充電されていません.

エネルギーはその力、燃料のように私たちの生活のあらゆる分野であり、. 私たちは、すべてのタスクのためにそれを必要とします, すべての会話, すべての思考. そして、その燃料が低いとき, すべては苦しみます. 何らかの理由で, 私の体は私が燃料を補給させません. 代わりに、私のタンクが真上残ります “E,” そして、私はそれを介して、作ってみます. それは私の人生のあらゆる領域を通って足を引きずっ私を残しています.

私はあなたのすべてを教えて, ないあなたの同情のために, しかし、あなたはどのように考えるか挑戦します. 一部は逃した締め切りを見てもよいです, the discouraging days, the occasional tension in my marriage, そして、思います, “おとこ, この男は今失っています。” 私はまだ、再び私の人生計画を変更したり、私の息子に伝えるために持っている場合、それは確かに失うことのように感じています, “パパは今遊ぶには余りにも疲れています。” 私はそれが落胆し、しようとしていないと言った場合、私は横たわっていることになります. まだ, 私はまだ私の甘い勝利を主張します.

いいえ, 私は勝者の超人的に強いようなものではありませんよ; 私は実際にはかなり弱いですよ. 私は勝者の異なる種類です. そして、私はあなたの多くがあまりにもある疑いがあります.

勝者の異なる種類

私は勝利を持っています, しかし、私の強さは、それを確保していないため、. 私の勝利は私の弱さにもかかわらず起こります, でも、私の罪. 私は敵を破り、勝利を確保勝者はありませんよ; 私は実際にそれを受け取りました. 私はイエスに勝利を持っています.

パウロはローマ人への手紙で、このようにそれを置きます:

それが書かれているように, 「あなたのため、私たちは一日中、殺されています; 私たちは屠殺される羊とみなされている。「いいえ, これらすべてのことに私たちは私たちを愛し、彼を通して征服者以上のもの” (ローマ人への手紙 8:36-37).

ポールは詩篇を引用します 44, 賛美歌は、裁判の真っ只中に神の助けを叫ぶ場所. そして、パウロは何も神がキリストにあって私たちのために何をしたか取り消すことができないことを彼のポイントを作るためにその詩を使用しています.

最も印象的なことの一つは、ひどいことを言及した後ということです: 殺されます, 屠殺されています, ポールはあっても、我々が征服されているそれらのものに言います. 場合でも、我々は失いま​​す, 我々は勝利しています. 我々は、この倒れた世界に征服されている場合でも、, 私たちは、イエスを通して征服者のまま. 小さな毎日の戦いは、私たちの運命を決定するものではありません。, 戦争はすでに勝ってきたので、. それはあなたに信じられないほどの希望をもたらすものではありません? 私たちはキリストにしている場合, 私たちは本当に失うことができません.

多分, 私のような, あなたは大きな困難のシーズンにしています. 私はこの真理を考えるいくつかの方法であなたを奨励したいです.

1. ちょうどあなたを見てはいけません

私は私の一日を過ごすときに私の弱さに焦点を当て、私の心の中でぶつぶつ, 私は私の落胆を養うと絶望の私の誤った感覚を煽ります. 私が私を見つめたとき、私は私が失ってしまったと思います, 私はイエスを見つめたとき、私は私が勝つことを思い出します. 彼は彼の敵を倒した時, 彼は私たちに代わって、それらを破りました.

2. ちょうど今、見てはいけません

私は今日だけ、またはこれらの過去数年間に焦点を当てた場合, 私は、これは、それが常にものになるかどうかだと思うように誘惑よ. しかし、イエスは、私はまだexpereiencedていない十字架の上で私のために信じられないものを購入しました. 私は今不完全神を知っています, 私は、後に完全に彼を知るようになります. 彼も私にブランドの新しい体を与え、すべての私の涙を拭いますよ.

また、今勝利しているように見える人たちに焦点を当てるように誘惑することができます. いつも私たちを悩ませているように見える同じ試練や挫折を持っていない人. しかし、第3四半期に優勝のチームは、常に最後に勝つチームではありません. 多くの人々が毎日の戦いに勝利しているように見えます, しかし、彼らは戦争に勝ったのOneで信頼していません. ちょうど今見てはいけません.

甘い勝利

マイケル・ジョーダンは、私たちが今まで見た中で最大かつ最も人気のある受賞者の一つであります. しかしいたことに大きな勝利があります. そして、私たちのどれもが、それが戦争に自分自身に勝つために必要なものはありません; 唯一のキリストことを行うことができます. 彼は私たちのために我々の敵のすべてを倒しています: 無し, サタン, そして、死自体を. それは彼の勝利のチームとの利益に参加するのにかかるすべての罪から回して救い主に信頼されています. 誰でも, でも、私たちの間で最も弱いが勝者であることができます.

これは私がこれらの言葉を書いたとき、私の心にあった真実 “甘い勝利”:

勝者は7回を受賞していますものではありません
トロフィーは良いスタートを持ったものに行っていません
私が言うとき、私は私がいるよ、この日を意味するものではありません勝ちます
灰色の空がフェードアウトするとき、私はその日を意味します, その後、私は彼と一緒に君臨 '原因勝利です

    旅行, 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. そう, 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, 旅行. 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. ChristyCapp応答

    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” または “knowingof the TRUTH, which isJESUS”, 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 had no idea you were facing this battle. I read your book, “the good lifea while back but don’t remember seeing that. I was so blessed by your article today, you’re in my prayers brother. My cousin suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and it’s very difficult for her to enjoy things she used to. Thank you for sharing, my heart goes out to you and your wife today. Fight the good fight. You’re a True Champion. Jesus’s love conquers all. P.s. dope song too!

  20. レイチェル応答

    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. God is so good. 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. ありがとうございました!

    旅行 (and Jess)–
    Thanks so much for this encouraging song. I cannot wait to get your new album. 我々 (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. ありがとうございました!
    And congratulations to you and the Mrs. on the new little one. Whether he (or her) is born or not. :) Love you guys!

    旅行, 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. あなたに恵み, BRO!

    This blog post was such a blessing to me. しばしば, I don’t feel understood by family, 友人, 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 年. 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……

    旅行,
    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.

    旅行,
    You don’t know how much this means to me. When it seems like the whole world is against you, you know that you’ll win in the end with flying colors! And now knowing what you’ve been going through the past seven years, you can know that you are in my prayers Bro. Thanks for opening up your heart to us.

    旅行,
    Chronic Fatigue has plagued my life from when I was 13 または 14 years old all the way up until only a matter of weeks ago (アイム 28 今). 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.

    良い仕事を続けてください. 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. わたし 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. ローマ人への手紙 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. 神のお恵みがありますように,your wife,and children in all your days and all you do.
