Kai nugalėtojai atrodyti Nevykėlių

Ką nugalėtojai atrodyti? Ar jie aukštas, ar žemas? Juoda arba balta? Stipri ar silpna? Manau, tai priklauso nuo to, ką mes vadiname “nugalėtojas.”

Man buvo čiulpti į vieną nugalėtoją istorija praėjusį mėnesį, kaip skaityti ilgas, bet įdomi biografija Michael Jordan. Išsamus sąskaita man priminė, kodėl daugelis žmonių manija su juo ribojasi herojus garbinimo. Daugelis dalykų galima pasakyti ir apie “jo Airness” bet niekas kada nors galėtų reikalauti, kad jis nėra nugalėtojas. Ar jis atrodo nugalėtojas, kol jis gavo visus tuos čempionato žiedus, nors?

Kaip jūs skaitote knygą, atrodė matyti iš vaikystės, kad jis būtų čempionas. Nesvarbu, ar tai buvo jo puikų žaidimą, kaip mažai lygos ąsotis arba kaip jaunesnysis Varsity krepšininko; jo vidurinės mokyklos augimo spurtas arba jo žaidimas laimėti kulka per savo Pirmaisiais metais su UNC.

Iki to laiko aš turiu skyriuose apie savo čempionatuose kaip Čikagos Bulls, nebuvo staigmenų. Autorė papasakojo savo istoriją taip, kad tapo aišku,: Jordanas gimė būti nugalėtojas. Ir tai, ką mes žinome, jį: laimėjo šešias čempionato žiedus, penki MVP, ir 14 All Star pasirodymai (jau nekalbant apie jo neginčijamų karaliauti sporto batų žaidimą).

Šis neužginčytos karaliavimo natūra yra tai, ką paprastai ateina į galvą pirmiausia, kai mes galvojame “nugalėtojas.” Bet aš noriu mums palikti kambario ir kitas nugalėtojas rūšies. Iš nugalėtojas natūra, kurie neturi visų čempionas Guardian. Iš nugalėtojas natūra, kurio trūkumai yra daugiau Pažymėtina, nei jo stipriąsias. Iš nugalėtojas natūra, kurie atrodo labiau kaip nevykėlis kartais.

užkariavo, bet užkariavimas

Aš būsiu sąžiningas su savimi. Pastarieji dveji metai buvo nuostabus daugeliu atžvilgių, bet jie taip pat buvo gana sunku. Man patiko tvirtą santuoką ir dviejų mažų gyvybių pradžią. Aš patirti pastoracinės minsitry džiaugsmą sveikos bažnyčios. Bet aš taip pat kentėjo su silpnumu. Sunku pašaliečių pasakyti kartais, nes man atrodo, kad reikia daryti daug gerų dalykų. Bet jei tik jūs galite pamatyti šiek tiek arčiau.

Turiu chroniško nuovargio sindromas. Aš žinau, Aš niekada girdėjote apie tai anksčiau arba. Gal todėl, kai jis trenkė man ji jautėsi daugiau kaip Sucker Punch nei organizuotoje bijau. Iš pradžių tai tikrai apsunkino me- buvau tik miega šešias valandas per dieną, ir išnaudotos kitos aštuoniolikos. Per ateinančius metus ji geriau, bet ji vis dar liko man, ką aš naudojamas, kad būtų lukštais. Aš gyveno pastaruosius septynerius metus su Begalinė nuovargis. Aš nuoširdžiai nepamenu, kada paskutinį kartą pajutau rested- kaip mano baterija mirė, bet niekada įkrauti.

Energija yra tarsi kuras, įgaliojimai Kiekvienas iš mūsų gyvenimo sritis,. Mums reikia jį kiekvieną užduotį, kiekvienas pokalbis, kiekviena mintis. Ir kai tai kuras yra mažos, viskas kenčia. Dėl tam tikrų priežasčių, mano kūnas nebus leiskite man pasipildyti degalų. Vietoj mano bakas tvyro tiesiai virš “El,” ir aš pabandyti padaryti jį per. Jis paliko mane šlubas per kiekvieną mano gyvenimo srityje.

Sakau jums visa tai, ne savo simpatijas, bet iššūkis, kaip jūs manote. Kai kurie gali pažvelgti į praleistus terminus, the discouraging days, the occasional tension in my marriage, ir manau,, “Vyras, šis vaikinas yra prarasti dabar.” Jis tikrai jaučiasi prarasti, kai turiu dar kartą pakeisti savo gyvenimo planus, arba pasakyti savo sūnų, “Tėtis 's pernelyg pavargę žaisti dabar.” Meluočiau, jei aš sakė, kad tai buvo ne varžantis ir bando. dar, Aš vis dar teigia, my sweet pergalę.

ne, Nesu viršžmogiškojo stiprus rūšies nugalėtojas; Aš iš tikrųjų labai silpnas. Aš kitoks nugalėtojas. Ir įtariu, kad daugelis iš jūsų yra per.

Kitoks nugalėtojas

Aš turiu pergalę, bet ne, nes mano stiprybė ją pritvirtinti. Mano pergalė atsitinka nepaisant mano silpnybių, Net mano nuodėmės. Aš nesu Viktoras, kuris nugalėjo priešus ir užsitikrino pergalę; Aš tikrai tik jį gavo. Turiu pergalę Jėzaus.

Paulius iškelia jį kaip tai romėnai:

Kaip parašyta, "Dėl jūsų mes žudomi ištisą dieną,; mes laikomas avių būti paskersti. "Ne, visuose šiuose dalykuose mes esame daugiau negu nugalėtojai per Tą, kuris mus pamilo” (Romėnai 8:36-37).

Paulius cituoja Psalmyno 44, kur Psalmininkas sušunka Dievo pagalbos į teismą viduryje. Paulius naudoja tą posmą, kad jo mintį, kad niekas negali atšaukti, ką Dievas padarė dėl mūsų Kristuje.

Vienas iš ryškiausių dalykų yra tai, kad po paminėti baisių dalykų: žudomi, paskersti, Paulius sako, net tose dalykuose mes esame užkariautojai. Net tada, kai mes prarasti, mes laimėti. Net tada, kai mes buvo užkariauta šio puolusio pasaulio, mes vis nugalėtojai per Jėzaus. Maži kasdieniai mūšiai nenustato mūsų likimą, nes karas jau laimėjo. Ar ne tai, kad tave neįtikėtiną vilties? Jei mes Kristuje, mes tikrai negalime prarasti.

Gal būt, kaip aš, esate iš labai sunkiai sezono. Noriu paskatinti jus su keliais būdais, manau, apie šią tiesą.

1. Ar ne tik žiūri į tave

Kai aš praleisti savo dieną sutelkiant dėmesį į mano silpnumo ir gaižus mano širdyje, Aš tik maitinti savo vengti ir degalų mano apgaulingi jausmas beviltiškumo. Kai aš spoksojimas mane Manau Pamečiau, bet kai aš spoksojimas Jėzaus aš priminė, kad aš laimėti. Kai jis buvo nugalėti savo priešų, jis buvo nugalėti juos mūsų vardu.

2. Ar ne tik pažvelgti Dabar

Jei aš sutelkti dėmesį tik šiandien ar pastaruosius kelerius metus, Aš pagunda galvoti tai, kaip jis visada bus. Bet Jėzus įsigyti neįtikėtinų dalykų man ant kryžiaus, kad aš ne expereienced dar. Aš žinau Dievą netobulai dabar, bet man jį puikiai žino vėliau. Jis bus net man naują kūną ir nušluostys kiekvieną ašaras.

Mes taip pat gali būti linkusios sutelkti dėmesį į tuos, kurie, atrodo, laimėjo dabar. Tie, kurie neturi tokių pačių bandymų ir nesėkmių, kad visada atrodo, kad maras mus. Tačiau komanda, kuri laimi trečiąjį ketvirtį, ne visada yra komanda, kas laimi, galų gale. Daug žmonių, atrodo, būti laimėti kasdien kovų, bet jie ne pasitikėjo tas, kuris laimėjo karą. Ar ne tik pažvelgti į dabar.

Saldi pergalė

Michaelas Jordanas išlieka viena iš didžiausių ir populiariausių nugalėtojų mes kada nors matė. Tačiau yra didesni Pergalės būti turėjo. Ir nė vienas iš mūsų turi tai, ko reikia norint laimėti karą save; tik Kristus gali padaryti, kad. Jis nugalėjo visus savo priešų mus: be, Šėtonas, ir mirtis save. Viskas, ko reikia prisijungti prie komandos ir naudos iš jo laimi sukasi iš nuodėmės ir pasitikėdamas Gelbėtojo. bet kas, net silpniausia tarp mūsų gali būti nugalėtojai.

Tai yra tiesa, kad buvo mano širdyje, kai rašiau šiuos žodžius “Saldi pergalė”:

Victor yra ne tas, kad laimi septintą Feed
Trofėjai neina į tuos, kurie gavo gerą pradžią
Kai aš sakau, aš laimėti I do not mean šią dieną aš
Aš turiu galvoje, kad tą dieną, kai pilka padangė išnyks, tada aš laimėti "nes aš su Juo ir valdysime

Įsitikinkite, kad pasiimti kopiją “pakilti” kai jis išeina 10.27.14!

    This is such an inspiring word. Your song articulates the intricate relationship between glory moments, and uncontrollable pitfalls. Ačiū. I now know that everything, good and bad, comes down from the Father of Lights.

  3. SteveLatsakymas

    Kelionė, this song has been a huge blessing into my life already! My dad and sister have some health issues that they have been dealing with for several years and your description for why and how you wrote this song is beautiful and comforting. Thank you for being true to your faith and to the gospel.

  4. Lydiaatsakymas

    This was so encouraging to me. My energy has been at the same level as yours for the past two yearsI was finally diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease a couple months ago and my fatigue is finally getting lighter! I hope you can eventually find something that helps you! You’re doing so so so much more than people realize. Props to you! You’re an inspiration to me :)

I pray supernaturally healing in the mighty name of Jesus over your body. I pray for continued strength and endurance to touch you so you can do the Lords work without growing tired but rather to be renewed each and every day.

    I’m a true believer. In today’s society it’s very easy to get side tracked worried about how other people live their lives. Can’t wait for RISE to come out. Trip u really do inspire me to be the best man an father to wife an kids.

  7. Patrickatsakymas

    Kelionė, 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.

  8. Vinceatsakymas

    I’m always encouraged by your posts bro and this might be the best one yet! I’m praying for your strength and can’t wait to cop the album!

  10. Chesteratsakymas

    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. taip, 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.

  11. christianatsakymas

  15. isaiahatsakymas

    Love your music man. It and other Christian hip hop music has and is and will continue to help God change my life. Our struggle is not forever as you well know tripp. Thanks for the reminder.

  16. GabeTavianoatsakymas

    Thanks for being transparent, Kelionė. 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. ChristyCappatsakymas

    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!

  18. Jėzusatsakymas

    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” arba “knowingof the TRUTH, which is “JĖZUS”, 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..!

  19. Ashleyatsakymas

    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. Rachelatsakymas

    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. Ačiū!

  21. Julija trinamasatsakymas

    Kelionė (and Jess)–
    Thanks so much for this encouraging song. I cannot wait to get your new album. Mes (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. Ačiū!
    And congratulations to you and the Mrs. on the new little one. Whether he (or her) is born or not. :) Love you guys!

  22. Dinaatsakymas

    Kelionė, 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. Blessings to you, Bro!

  23. Diatsakymas

    Downloaded the album yesterday and I love it! My fav is “Visi Rise Up”; I have it on replaylolthanks for the wonderful album Trip. Hope to watch you in concert one day.

  24. Gabkyatsakymas

    Oho. This is my first time coming across this site and I’m loving all the posts I’ve read so far. I’ve been so blessed and encouraged.This is just what I needed at this moment to know that despite my weaknesses he still reigns in my life and I can look to him and always be uplifted.
    I had no idea you were going through this, you’re in my prayers. Thank you so much for sharing. God bless you so much.
    Just listened to Sweet Victory and I’ve been so blessed by your song! And I can’t wait to listen to the whole album. I’m sure that’s all I’ll be listening to these coming weeks. Continue the good work!

  25. Latashaatsakymas

    This blog post was such a blessing to me. dažnai, I don’t feel understood by family, draugai, 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!

    Grace and Peace,
    Tasha F.

  26. TTuniqueatsakymas

    My daughter dedicated this song to me. I could not stop listening and crying. I Have been battling immune system issues for 15 metų. 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……

  27. Timatsakymas

    Kelionė,
    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.

  28. Burtonatsakymas

    Kelionė,
    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.

  29. femiatsakymas

    Kelionė, you are a huge inspiration. RISE is a great album and i love it! As concerning your health, i believe its just a temporary flame of afflicton preparing you for the glory to be revealed. God is set to use you more brother. so don’t grow weary. keep believing and praying. I love you brother.

  30. Nateatsakymas

    Kelionė,
    Chronic Fatigue has plagued my life from when I was 13 arba 14 years old all the way up until only a matter of weeks ago (Aš 28 now). 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.

    Keep up the good work. I’ll be praying for you.

  31. ThomLomasatsakymas

    Thank you for sharing these words. I wish I would’ve read this last year but I wasn’t meant to read it until now. Now that I had a little better understanding on why these things happened. Ačiū dar kartą, Telaimina Dievas.

  32. Brandon Martinezatsakymas

    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. I am 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. Romėnai 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. telaimina tave Dievas,your wife,and children in all your days and all you do.
