Quick Update, Quick Encouragement

By Trip Lee

Well first things first.  What have I been up to?  Way too much!  The Lord has blessed me with many many opportunities in these recent months.  This summer has been full of opportunities to promote His name.  From Texas, to New York, to Cali, to Idaho, to Zambia, Africa.  I’m so so grateful for each and every one of those opportunities and the Lord has graciously used a wicked sinner for His namesake within all of these many opportunities.  To try and sum this summer up in a paragraph, 13 Letters dropped (curriculum is on the way!), went on a mission trip to Zambia to teach (look for pictures soon!), went on tour with Cross Movement, lots of my own shows all over the place,  and I been in Memphis working on the “Amped” album and my second solo project as well.
Speaking of “Amped” me, Ben, and Miguel just went to Nashville to drop off the master to the distribution company.  It’s all finished and sounding crazy! Joseph Prielozny and his crew did an amazing job remixing Reach favorites and helping us to toss some new ones your way as well.  I’m real excited about this project and hope cats go pick it up. August 29th! As far as my second album… we’ll talk more about that later.  Just know I’m grindin!  I also had chances to co-labor with a lot of my brothers in the faith on CMR and other cats.  I’m honored to get to team up with em.  Look for collabs on some of the newest albums and a couple more to come.  Our brothers at CMR have been putting out some heat.  Be sure to check em out and be encouraged! (and look for Tedashii on Cross Movement and Flame’s albums!  He been killin it!)
Well that’s more than enough about what we doing ministry-wise.  Since I been in Memphis we all been getting it in heavy and growing together.  And I always want to encourage my brothers and sisters in the faith when I get a chance to.  And I always want to share with others what the Lord has been allowing me to see and teaching me lately.  Lately, the main thing that’s been heavy on my heart to do and to encourage others to is really pressing in deep for intimacy with God.  Many of us remain content with these surfacey relationships with our Father.  Others of us think we are extremely mature because we know a lot or we’re doing a lot but in actuality missed the main thing; WE DON’T KNOW GOD!  Christ died that we may know Him!  Not so we could go to church services, not so we could learn some big words and cool doctrines or man-made systems of theology.  Not to demonize these things, but we must recognize them as what they are, side notes in the big scheme of things.
I could go on for days but will keep it short for now.  I plan to blog often and holla at yall whenever I can (as my schedule permits).  You’ll hear a lot of the same from me for a lil bit so get ready!  And let us examine our hearts.  Do we yearn for God like the admirable men of the bible did?  Like David and Paul did?  Compare your hearts cry to David’s in Psalm 63 and see how you measure up.  We’ll dive in that deeper later but for now I leave you with that challenge and a quote from A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God to get your mind working,  “We have almost forgotten that God is a person and as such can be cultivated as any person can.  It is inherent in personality to be able to know other personalities, but full knowledge of one personality by another cannot be achieved in one encounter.  It is only after long and loving mental intercourse that the full possibilities of both can be explored.”  I love yall to death and appreciate your support.  Enjoy the new site!


P.S. I plan to write a new article soon too.  What would yall like to read an article on from us at Reach?

Trip Before I get into this Id like to tell you that your music gets bumped like everyday in my boys carlo now. Youve helped open God up to this man, and I thank you for that. And I swear im friends with yo biggest fan lol, but neways family I wanted to agree with this right here. So many times I myself get caught up in the motions, the habbits, instead of truelly plugging into God. To the point my spirit yearns with hunger for him, and I seem to ignore it and replace a relationship with simple habbits of religion and "spiritual" activities. So know Im praying for you dogg, and my church is behind you to, well atleast us urban ones. Countinue to represent, and you will always have us behind you. Aight peace Trip

trip, you and all the guys at reach are doing amazing things! God is using you in sooo many ways and you are such an inspiration for me and so many other people that i know. one thing that i would love to hear from reach about is intamacy with God. i love my lord and savior Jesus Christ with all my heart but i still feel that our relationship is not intamante all the time. and i know that me always sinning and fallin short of God's standards and the devil using that to get in my head is part of that, but i would love to hear from yall on that subject, because i can think of nothing better than an intamant relationship with God.


p.s. trip you no you a texas boi so hurry up and do what u need 2 do up there in philly and come back down to texas! i already missed you once at the college station/texas a&m island party. so you need to have more concerts down here where u were raised! down here in the great state of texas! God bless!

Dear Trip,

My son was given a cd of Lecrae that featured you. I heard both of you with more than my ears. I heard your cry for God and it reminded me of myself when I first got saved. When I was young I didn't have anyone who understood my relationship with Christ, I had no one to talk to. If I had questions or doubts I didn't feel comfortable going to others because I felt they would judge me "I thought you were a Christian" and I couldn't go to the world because they didn't have a clue.

After hearing the two of you I felt a motherly bond. I want to adopt you and Lecrae as my spiritual sons. God has called me to be a mother to more than just my children. My first parental advice is that you are to pray about everything. Confirm everything with His peace. If you feel led, write me. I will support you and your ministry with my prayers and funds and if there is anything else I can do, let me know. Please know that I am not trying to replace your real mother nor anyone else in your life that you look to as a mother, I am just saying that God has given you another one.

Be blessed of the Lord Most High and may He bless all that you set your hands to.
