Popular hip-hop artist Lecrae recently went backpacking through Egypt and Rome and his faith was renewed, and ultimately he concluded that he believes “God isn’t overwhelmed with America’s problems.”
The Reach Records founder has been very outspoken about the political climate and social unrest going on in America. This month after taking a trip overseas and going to places that were attacked just days after he visited, Lecrae said he has found a new hope for his country.
The following is a Facebook post shared by Lecrae in which he detailed his experience.
“I just touched a 3000 year ancient Egyptian empire. Some places I left were bombed a day later. That doesn’t make me special though. This is some people’s daily reality across the world. Then I left and saw the remains of a Greco-Roman empire. I’m still processing a lot but let me tell you one take away.
God was present and helped people navigate thru those massive empires and all their terrors, injustices, corruption, deaths, pride, confusion and pain. The faith and compassion of people across the world is helping them navigate terrorism, hunger, and evil dictatorship.
I realized when I got home…God isn’t overwhelmed with America’s problems. He’s always been in control of what to us looks like chaos. I have a renewed faith and trust. I’m just gonna continue to play my little part in this big story.
If you’re in dark times hang in there you aren’t alone”
