By the Grace of God, It Looks Like a Rich Young Black Man by the Name of Lecrae Will Avoid Hubris and Self-destruction as He Humbles Himself Before God and the World, for He Is Saying What All True Christians Say Everyday: “I Am Tired of My Ego.” Here’s His Full Letter: “Let me be honest. I’m tired. Before you mistake this for a cry for help or public post that should be private. It’s not. I just want to be forthright. I’m tired of my ego. Lots of days I walk a fine line of wanting to be affirmed by strangers on the internet and inspiring them. I’m tired of subconsciously believing I have to look put together because I’m a public figure. I am just a broken human doing the best I can to follow Jesus. On my best days people see the Light in me. On my worst days I’m the poster child for someone desperately in need of the grace of God. I have more earthy treasures than I ever imagined, but I don’t want to defined by that. Underneath the designer clothing is the kid who wore knock off shoes to school and felt less than because my father abandoned me. That insecure boy is fighting everyday to be the man he should be. I’ve had it all. Grammys, number 1 albums, sold out shows, money, cars, access etc. but at the top of this celebrity mountain I can honestly say having good friends, family, love, laughs, & peace of mind is the REAL treasure. I need as much help remembering that as anyone. Thanks to my friends in LA who keep me grounded. I can honestly say coffee and tacos with y’all is always better for my soul than any party in the Hollywood hills. If you made it this far in my rant…thank you. Hopefully something I said will help you. I know typing it helped me.” Or Said Another Way by the Apostle Paul Himself When He Said, “For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.” Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society International, Is Glad to Hear This Young Man Humbling Himself Because We Were Wondering With His So-called Deconstruction Talk, His Colleague Trip Lee Quitting the Pastorate, and Now Gawvi Caught Up In a Gross Sin of Not Only Sending Penis Pictures to Other Women, but as We Understand It, to Some of His Colleagues’ Wives, That Maybe Lecrae Is at Least Partly Responsible for the Culture, Depression, and Loose Atmosphere at Reach Records, and if He Would Consider Cancelling the Unashamed Tour and Have All of Them Go, That is All of the Talent and Staff of Reach Records, Go on a Sabbatical and Spend Some Time With Dr. Tony Evans Together, Including Gawvi and His Wife if Possible (for He and His Wife Are Too Young and His Children Are Too Young to Give Up on That Marriage) and Get Their Hearts Right With God and Their Heads Straight and Do the Tour After That. But We Are Thankful to God That Lecrae Is at Least Moving in the Right Direction of Humility and Not the Dangerous Direction of Hubris That Has Destroyed Many Young Black Men and Many Thousands of Others — Red, Yellow, Black, and White — Down Through the Years
