Meta Rebbieħa Ħares Bħall telliefa

What do rebbieħa look like? Dawn huma tall jew qosra? Iswed jew abjad? Qawwi għal wieħed ħafif? I raden dan jiddependi fuq dak li rridu nfissru minn “rebbieħ.”

I kien miġbudin fil-istorja ta 'rebbieħ wieħed dan il-aħħar xahar bħala taqra twal, iżda bijografija involviment ta 'Michael Jordan. Il-kont dettaljat mfakkra me għaliex ossessjoni ħafna nies miegħu fruntieri fuq eroj-qima. Ħafna affarijiet jista 'jingħad dwar “Airness tiegħu” iżda ħadd ma jista 'qatt titlob huwa ma rebbieħ. Did hu look like rebbieħ qabel ma ltqajna dawk kollha ċrieki kampjonat, għalkemm?

Kif inti taqra l-ktieb, deher ċar mit-tfulija tiegħu li kien se jkun champion. Jekk dak kien il-logħba eċċellenti tiegħu bħala pitcher kampjonat ftit jew bħala attur Varsity junior basketball; spurt tkabbir iskola għolja tiegħu jew logħba tiegħu rebbieħa sparatura matul is-sena freshman tiegħu ma UNC.

Saż-żmien sirt il-kapitoli dwar kampjonati tiegħu bħala Bull Chicago, ma kienx hemm sorpriżi. L-awtur told istorja tiegħu b'mod li għamlitha ċara: Ġordan twieled biex tkun rebbieħ. U dan huwa dak li nafu lilu għall: rebbieħa sitt ċrieki kampjonat, ħames MVPs, u 14 apparenza Star (biex ma nsemmux renju mhux ikkontestati tiegħu fil-logħba żarbun atletiċi).

Dan it-tip ta 'renju mhux ikkontestati huwa dak li normalment tiġi f'moħħna ewwel meta naħsbu “rebbieħ.” Imma nixtieq li ahna jitħalla spazju għal tip ieħor ta 'rebbieħ. It-tip ta rebbieħ li ma jkollha l-makings ta 'champion. It-tip ta rebbieħ li dgħufijiet huma aktar notevoli minn qawwiet tiegħu. It-tip ta rebbieħ li jixbah aktar jitlef kultant.

maħkuma, iżda Conquering

I ser tkun onest miegħek. L-aħħar sentejn kienu aqwa f'ħafna modi, iżda li ħadthom ukoll pjuttost diffiċli. Stajt jgawdu żwieġ b'saħħtu u l-bidu ta 'żewġ ħajjiet ftit. Stajt esperjenza l-ferħ ta 'minsitry pastorali fil-knisja b'saħħithom. Imma stajt ukoll infestat bl dgħjufija. Huwa diffiċli biex barranin li tgħid xi kultant minħabba I jidhru li tkun qiegħda tagħmel l-affarijiet tant tajba. Imma biss jekk inti tista 'tara ftit aktar mill-qrib.

Għandi sindromu ta 'għeja kronika. naf, I qatt ma semgħu biha qabel jew. Forsi hu għalhekk li meta hit me li ħass aktar bħal punch sucker minn bout organizzata. Fil-bidu huwa verament b'diżabilità me-I kien biss imqajjmin għal sitt sigħat kuljum, u eżawriti għall-tmintax-oħra. Matul is-sena d-dieħla hija ma jitjibux, iżda xorta ħallew me qoxra ta 'dak I użati biex ikunu. Stajt għexu l-aħħar seba 'snin ma' għeja neverending. I onestament ma tistax tiftakar l-aħħar darba I felt rested- simili batterija tiegħi miet, iżda qatt rikarigat.

Enerġija huwa bħall-fjuwil li s-setgħat kull qasam tal-ħajja tagħna. Għandna bżonn għal kull kompitu, kull konversazzjoni, kull ħsieb. U meta dak il-fjuwil huwa baxx, kollox ibati. Għal xi raġuni, korp tiegħi mhux se let me fjuwil. Minflok tank tiegħi lingers dritt fuq “E,” u jien jippruvaw jagħmlu dan permezz. Huwa telqu lili limping permezz ta 'kull qasam tal-ħajja tiegħi.

I jgħidlek dan kollu, mhux għall simpatija tiegħek, iżda sabiex jikkontestaw kif taħseb. Xi wħud jistgħu ħarsa lejn l-iskadenzi mitlufa, the discouraging days, the occasional tension in my marriage, u think, “Man, dan Guy qed titlef id-dritt issa.” Hija żgur jħoss simili jitilfu meta għandi biex jinbidlu pjanijiet ħajja tiegħi għal darb'oħra jew tell tifel tiegħi, “Daddy wisq għajjien biex jilagħbu dritt issa.” Inkun tinsab jekk I qal li ma kienx jiskoraġġixxu u jippruvaw. Madankollu, I għadhom jitolbu rebħa ħelu tiegħi.

Nru, Jien mhux it-tip qawwi ta superhuman ta rebbieħ; Jien fil-fatt pretty dgħajfa. I'ma tip differenti ta rebbieħ. U nissuspetta ħafna minnkom huma wisq.

Tip differenti ta 'Winner

I do jkollhom rebħa, iżda mhux minħabba s-saħħa tiegħi assigurat li. rebħa tiegħi jiġri minkejja nuqqasijiet tiegħi, anke dnubiet tiegħi. Jien mhux l-victor li għelbu foes u assigurati l-rebħa; I verament ftit rċevieh. Għandi rebħa fi Kristu.

Paul tqiegħdu bħal dan fil Rumani:

Peress li huwa miktub, "Għal raġunijiet tiegħek aħna qegħdin jinqatlu l-jum twil; aħna huma meqjusa bħala nagħġa li jiġu maqtula. "Le, f'dawn l-affarijiet kollha aħna aktar minn conquerors permezz lilu li iħobb lilna” (Rumani 8:36-37).

Paul kwotazzjonijiet Salm 44, fejn il-Psalmist cries out għal għajnuna ta 'Alla fil-midst ta' prova. U Paul użi li poeżiji li jagħmel il-punt tiegħu li xejn jista 'teqred dak li Alla għamel għalina fi Kristu.

Waħda mill-affarijiet aktar impressjonanti huwa li wara li jsemmi l-affarijiet terribbli: li jinqatlu, li jinqatlu, Paul says anke dawk l-affarijiet aħna conquerors. Anke meta aħna jitilfu, aħna qed rebbieħa. Anke meta aħna qed jiġu maħkuma minn din id-dinja waqa, nibqgħu conquerors permezz ta 'Ġesù. -Battalji żgħar kuljum ma jiddeterminawx destin tagħna, minħabba li l-gwerra kienet diġà ġiet rebaħ. Ma li jġibu inti t-tama inkredibbli? Jekk aħna qed fi Kristu, aħna verament ma tistax titlef.

Jista 'jkun, bhali, int fi staġun ta 'diffikultà kbira. Irrid li ninkoraġġukom ma ftit modi naħseb dwar din il-verità.

1. Ma biss ħarsa lejn You

Meta I jqattgħu l-ġurnata tiegħi jiffoka fuq dgħjufija tiegħi u grumbling fil-qalb tiegħi, I biss għalf skoraġġiment tiegħi u fjuwil sens falz tiegħi ta 'disperazzjoni. Meta I stare fil lili I think stajt mitlufa, imma meta I stare fil Ġesù Jien fakkar li nirbaħ. Meta kien jisfratta foes tiegħu, kien jisfratta minnhom għan-nom tagħna.

2. Ma biss ħarsa lejn Issa

Jekk jien biss jiffoka fuq illum jew dawn l-aħħar ftit snin, Jien it-tentazzjoni li jaħsbu li dan huwa kif dejjem se jkun. Imma Ġesù mixtrija affarijiet unbelievable għalija fuq is-salib li jien ma expereienced għadhom. Naf Alla imperfett issa, imma jien isiru jafu lilu perfettament aktar tard. Hu ser anki tagħti me korp ġdid fjamant u imsaħ bogħod kollha dmugħ tiegħi.

Nistgħu wkoll jkollhom it-tentazzjoni li tiffoka fuq dawk li jidhru li huma rebbieħa issa. Dawk li ma jkollhomx l-istess provi u kontrattempi li dejjem jidhru li pesta lilna. Iżda t-tim li s rebbieħ fit-tielet kwart mhux dejjem it-tim li jirbaħ fl-aħħar. Ħafna nies jidhru li huma jirbħu l-battalji ta 'kuljum, iżda dawn ma jkunux fdati fil-One li s rebaħ il-gwerra. Do mhux biss tħares lejn issa.

Victory ħelu

Michael Jordan jibqa 'wieħed mill-akbar u l-aktar popolari rebbieħa konna qatt rat. Iżda hemm rebħiet akbar li kellhom. U ħadd minna ma dak li hemm bżonn biex tirbaħ il-gwerra nfusna; biss Kristu tista 'tagħmel dan. Hu defeated kollha għedewwa tagħna għalina: mingħajr, Satana, u l-mewt innifsu. Kollha li tieħu biex jissieħbu fl-tim u jibbenefikaw minn rebhiet tieghu qed insawru mid-dnub u fidu fil-Salvatur. Kulħadd, anke l-aktar dgħajfa fostna jista 'jkun rebbieħa.

Dan huwa l-verità li kien fil-qalb tiegħi meta I kiteb dawn il-kliem fil “Victory ħelu”:

Il victor ma jkunx il-wieħed li rebbieħa inning seba
Trofej ma jmorrux lil dawk li ltqajna bidu tajjeb
Meta I say I win I ma jfissirx din il-ġurnata jien fil
I tfisser dik il-ġurnata meta l-sema griż tgħib gradwalment, allura jien rebbieħa "jikkawżaw I reign miegħu

Kun żgur li pick up kopja ta ' “tfaċċar” meta toħroġ 10.27.14!

    Trip I’ve been playing sweet victory non-stop the past couple days, God’s working in your life and is going to be working through your album. Titolbu għalik

  2. Victoria JonesTweġiba

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

  3. SteveLTweġiba

    Trip, 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. LydiaTweġiba

    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 :)

  5. DeniseTweġiba

    God bless you Mr. Barefield. I’ve been utterly blessed watching your sermons, listening to your music, reading your articles and posts. 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 pray blessings over you, Jennifer and your two little ones. I thank you Lord for Williams obedience to Your calling in his life as a pastor, husband, father and artist. Let your light continue to shine thru his life. Thank you Father, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

  6. duran LoweryTweġiba

    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. PatrickTweġiba

    Trip, 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. VinceTweġiba

    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!

  9. CharlanaTweġiba

    ħej Trip,

    I truly enjoy your song “Victory ħelu”, it stays on repeat & I look forward to hearing the rest of the CD. God bless inti & your family & continued success to you!

  10. ChesterTweġiba

    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. Allura, 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. christianTweġiba

  14. Erica D. ClantonTweġiba

  15. isaiahTweġiba

    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. GabeTavianoTweġiba

    Thanks for being transparent, Trip. 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. ChristyCappTweġiba

    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. ĠesùTweġiba

    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” jew “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..!

  19. AshleyTweġiba

    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. Grazzi għall-qsim, 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. RachelTweġiba

    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. Grazzi!

  21. Julia RiebTweġiba

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

  22. DinaTweġiba

    Trip, 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 lilek, bro!

  23. DiTweġiba

    Downloaded the album yesterday and I love it! My fav is “Kollha tfaċċar Up”; I have it on replay… lol… thanks for the wonderful album Trip. Hope to watch you in concert one day.

  24. GabkyTweġiba

    Ara naqra. 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. LatashaTweġiba

    This blog post was such a blessing to me. spiss, I don’t feel understood by family, ħbieb, 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 u l-Paċi,
    Tasha F.

  26. TTuniqueTweġiba

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

    Trip,
    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. BurtonTweġiba

    Trip,
    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. FemiTweġiba

    Trip, 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. NateTweġiba

    Trip,
    Chronic Fatigue has plagued my life from when I was 13 jew 14 years old all the way up until only a matter of weeks ago (jien 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.

    Żomm l-ħidma tajba. I’ll be praying for you.

  31. ThomLomasTweġiba

    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. grazzi għal darb'oħra, Alla jbierek.

    -Thom L.

  32. Brandon MartinezTweġiba

    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. jien 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. Rumani 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. God bless inti,your wife,and children in all your days and all you do.
