A, no te e haere koe i roto i te wa pakeke, kahore e te iwi e mohio tonu ta ki te mea. Ko te hua ko te clichés horihori whakamātau i faaiti i ki te ngakau ake koutou ranei. Kua tonu ahau i te raruraru ki te cliché phrases- te ahua e kore e e auraa tetahi mea ki te tangata e mea ana ratou, a kahore e tauturu i mau te tangata e rongo ratou. mea heahea rite, "Chin ake" a "Ka whiwhi te reira i pai." Mo'oni? Me pēhea te e mohio koutou? E kore e meatia e koe tou hoa tetahi ara e hoatu marama ratou, tumanako fluffy kore e i hutia i roto i tetahi mea. A, no te ti'a ia tatou täia te mamae hohonu toka ki te pono totoka paturu tatou.
I roto i tona a'ee ki te mate pukupuku, haehae Christopher Hitchens rite riri ki etahi o nga kīanga horihori maka tatou a tawhio noa. Ahatia He he whārangi torutoru whawhai tetahi o ratou i roto i tona pukapuka, te tahuti nei. ta ia, "I roto i ngā, Kua paku mutu ahau te tuku i te faaiteraa e 'kore mea katoa e patua hanga ahau i ahau kaha.' "haere ia i runga i ki te mea, "I roto i te ao tinana whakaarokore ... i reira e maha rawa nga mea katoa e taea e whakamatea e koe, kaua e whakamate koutou, a ka waiho koe tino ngoikore. "Kāore e taea te koe ite noa i te hari?
oro te reira depressing, engari whakaaro ahau he tika i roto i te tikanga Hitchens. Ko tino taea e nehenehe ia tatou ia haere i roto i nga mea uaua e anake haaparuparu ia tatou, ka kawea tatou ofi ange ki te mate. Ka taea e whakaaro ahau te tangata tono i te pātai, “Kia pehea te taea te tahi mea tenei nanakia hanga ahau kaha?” Ka taea te pakaru iho ara te iwi tino pai i te faito o to tatou ao hinga. Te mana'o noa e taea te ora na maha whiu noa wawahi reira, me te mau hopea e awhi nei te reira i roto i. Kīanga e kotahi whakatangi orotika inaianei mea horihori. Ko Ko te mana'o pai-te auraa whakaekea pono ake Hitchens? na whakaaro ahau.
A, no te He te reira True?
"He aha e kore e whakamate i ahau hanga ahau kaha" taea e pono, engari anake ki te reira te tahi mea i tua atu i tenei ora. Ki te tenei ora, tenei ao, me tenei tinana kei katoa i reira he, He tika Hitchens. Ko te he teka. e riro te reira i rite mea, "He aha e kore e tapeke hanga toku motokā kaha te reira." Ko te tino wawau. Hiahia whai koe ki te tau'a ore i te parau mau ki te whakapono e. Otiia ki te whai i to tatou mau tamataraa poto etahi ahua o te tikanga mure ore taui te reira mea katoa.
parau Paulo ia tatou, "Mahi tahi nga mea katoa mo te pai o te hunga e aroha ana ki te Atua, me te hunga i karangatia i rite ki tona whakaaro." Ko te tahi mau taime tūkinotia tenei irava, engari te mea tetahi o nga kupu whakaari tino ataahua i roto i te katoa o te karaipiture. E kore tenei tikanga e he ore Karaitiana. ka fehangahangai katoa o tatou tamataraa, engari e kore e taea te mutunga te patua e matou e ratou. Ahakoa kino o tatou hoariri, rite mamae me te mate, riro to tatou mau hoa i roto i te Karaiti, no te mea ratou mutunga te mahi i roto i to tatou manakohia.
Na me pehea rite taea enei mau tamataraa kino mau hanga kaha tatou? Tenei e toru ara (ki te īnaki nui):
1. meinga ratou whakawhirinaki tatou i runga i a Ihu
A, no te ite e ahau, ano he mea katoa i roto i toku ora pai te haere, tahuri mai i te tonu toku ngakau ki whaiaro fakafalala-. Te reira e kore poto. tīmata ahau ki te inoi iti no te ihora amo ahau e kore ahau e hapa i tetahi mea. riro ahau whakakake no te whakaaro ahau au pai te haere ahau ki te take katoa. I roto i aua wa, Au wareware ahau e te Atua, ko te nana o hakari pai, a Me tonu ahau ki a ia ki te paturu ahau. Au mana'o ahau e au e tika ahau ki katoa o tona aroha.
Otira ka tae mai te mau tamataraa i to tatou ara, whakaatu ratou ia tatou i to tatou iho ngoikore. fakamanatu mate pehea pakarukaru tatou he, takoto-whiringa faahaamana'o ia tatou e kore e mahi pakeke kī tetahi mea, a fakamanatu pakanga tatou e ti'a ia tatou a Ihu i roto i nga rohe o to tatou oraraa.
2 Corinthians 12 Ko te whakamarie ki ahau i roto i nga wa o te ngoikore. E whakaae ana a Paora i homai e te Atua ki a ia he tamataraa ki "pupuri [ia] i hoko 'whakahihi. "Na ka mea ia tetahi ia pai i roto i tona ngoikore, me e te ia ihirangi ki nga mea katoa o te mau tamataraa. Kia pehea te taea e ihirangi a tae noa koa e pā ana ki ana tamataraa Paora? whakaaro ahau te mea a Paora e enei mau tamataraa kia mārama e hinaaro ia te aroha noa o te Atua, me te mana. Whaiaro-ti'aturiraa he ngoikore, me te ti'aturiraa i runga i te Karaiti he kaha. Na te kupu tenei Paora, "A, no te ahau hoki e ngoikore ahau, ko reira ahau kaha ahau. "
2. meinga ana ratou ia tatou ake ano he Ihu
e kore ka taea ki te mau tamataraa kino matou tae noa ki ite tatou e kore he whakamarie tatou me te hauora pai te mea te tino nui. Whakamarie, me te hauora he mea pai e pai te Atua ki te homai ki a matou. Ko e finangalo tuatahi o te Atua no to tatou ora ko e e riro tatou rite Ihu. Na te ia noa pai ki te whakamahi i te mau tamataraa no te faatupu i taua. Hebrews 12 ta, "[te Atua] papaki tatou pai tatou mo, kia faaite tatou i tona tapu. "mamae pea Training i roto i te omaoma o te Atua i te tahi taime, engari ka meinga ia kaha tatou.
James 1:2 haere mai ki te ngakau, te wahi e parau ia tatou ki "Kiia iho katoa hari, oku teina, ina tutaki koe mau tamataraa o ngā momo…"Ko te take kia tatou tatau reira hari ko te huru Mesia hua reira. He nui atu to tatou oaoa i to tatou haehaa. Ko te pai ki te kia tinana ngoikore, me te kaha fakalaumālie.
3. meinga ana ratou roa tatou ki te hei ki a Ihu
E ngoikore o tatou ngakau i te hara, a maha kitea e tatou tatou hiahia hoki atu o te mea tenei ao e ki te whakahere. Otira ka e tangohia nga oaoa poto o tenei ao i tatou, e fakamanatu tatou e kore ko te whenua i to tatou fare. Ko wāhi kē to tatou raraunga.
Ahau aroha noho i roto i hotels pai, a ka mahi ahau tamata ahau ki te tango i te rawa o nga perks katoa. Otiia ka tīmata ahau ki te mahue i toku wahine, a ka ite ahau e kore ahau e whai i nga kakahu auraa ahau ki te kawe mai, a ka ite ahau ratonga ruma ko e pā ana ki te hawhe rite pai rite tunu o toku wahine. faahaamana'o te reira ahau e kore ko tenei hotera toku kāinga. hanga hiahia roa'toa roa ahau ki te kia i te kāinga. e kore ko tenei whenua no tatou te wahi, a faahaamana'o ia tatou i te mau tamataraa e to tatou paradaiso he wāhi kē, ki to tatou Ariki,. He ka kore hiahia roa'toa i roto i te rangi, no te mea ka makona katoa o to tatou hiahia to tatou Ariki. ka ngaro ia te mamae, me te riringi tona aroha noa i roto i runga ia tatou ake ake.
Na te wa i muri mai to koutou he hoa haere i roto i te wa uaua, fakamanatu ratou e taea te hanga kaha tatou ara nga huru tino fakamamahi. Ehara i roto i whakaaro pai, me te mariu, engari i roto i te tumanako tūturu me tauiraa tūturu. A, no ka e haere koe i roto i te wa uaua, kia utu te reira koutou ofi ange ki Karaiti. Kaua e wehi, Ko te Ariki ki a koutou.
tumanako o te whakapono ko tera taha o te urupa, a ka waiho tatou i roto i te ora i muri rite me ki a ia. 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.
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
This was a little surprising to read. I had never really thought about positive sayings in negative situations being a bad thing. Ko, ano, 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.
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
Dear Mr.trip lee,
I just love this (: i have a question my church is actually doing a series “what on earth am i here for?” n im on of the youth leaders and I’ll be doing a lesson a discipleship and everything you said ties in perfectly cause on of the sections is depending on god during trails… so if its ok could i use some of your stuff? Like lil quotes or scriptures but only with your permisson …. I seriously love your stuff and its diffently helping me grow as christian (: thank you for being a man of god n honoring your calling to go into preaching. Gods gonna do some powerful things in your life and your familys life (:
I love u trip.. i really do bro!
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, au pai ahau, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for this message. I has really encouraged me because I have been having a tough time for around 12 tau, 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.
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. Kia mau tonu nga mahi pai, you are inspiring my 18 year old son to write music and keep up with his piano, stay blessed!
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. God bless you brother.
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, pai, uplifting and right on point! Good Bless You Brother!
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!
This hs what I always want 2 hear and read. Whakamoemititia te Atua 4 u bra.
This is encouraging stuff, teina. Thank you for reminding me of the gospel; the foundation of every Christian life.
Amen to that man!
Your explanation of our fathers meanings always give me understanding. Thank you Trip and please continue to help to open my eyes.

Amine, Nga manaakitanga ki a koe.
Preach it trip!
Amine. Thank you so much for your spirit filled guidance and teaching. Love this blog!
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?” Ko, 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.
I so needed to read this right now. manaaki te Atua ia koe.
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. Romans 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, akiaki, corrects, teaches me!….. noho hari!!!!!!!!!
i get this
i feel it
bless you BroTrip
“Our humility is more important than our happiness.” That really hit me man. Keep making that good music and God bless.
I am appreciative and encouraged by this…amene!
