A few days ago, Lecrae really shared his heart on social media.
The two-time GRAMMY award-winning artist, who doesn’t usually write long posts, revealed on Instagram that 2015-2017 was a serious roller-coaster filled with doubt, depression, anger, shame, hate, and hurt, among other emotions. He mentioned that for the first time in a while, he feels joyful and free.
Creezy’s been shutting up and listening to God a lot more lately, according to his recent Instagram post. In the description, he gives insight on why he titled his latest album ‘All Things Work Together.’ Most importantly, Crae is making it clear that he is continuing to follow Jesus in every area of his life.
He goes in with this one. Check it out below.
I Don’t do super long posts but I’m going to today so bear with me. Sometimes you gotta shut up and listen to God. Close your eyes and walk by faith. For the first time in a while I’m joyful and free. Took a while to get here. From 2015-2017 I was on a rollercoaster. Doubt, depression, anger, shame, hate, hurt, and on and on. When I made my album I didn’t title it “All Things Work Together” because I believed it…but because I NEEDED to believe it. God has allowed me to journey thru the pain and come out on the other side better, wiser, stronger, and more confident in who He created me to be. My life has been a unique journey ( I could go from the Hip Hop Awards to Hillsong in a day) but that’s MY LIFE lol! No hiding or running from it. Despite gossip, rumors, or misunderstandings, I’m not choosing race over faith, Secular over sacred…I’m choosing to follow Jesus in every area of my life. It’s not simple, it’s not black & white. It’s colorful and nuanced. It’s beautifully complicated and that leads to an immense amount of faith and trust. There have been a lot of missteps but even more mercy. My failures have led to stronger faith. I’m sure I’ll continue growing and changing as we all should. Ultimately I just want to thank everyone of you who have supported me thru it all. Your letters, messages, prayers, and support and GRACE has given me life. I’m walking into a new chapter of life and excited about it! I have everlasting hope and that’s enough to weather ANY storm.
Lecrae’s Billboard-charting album ‘All Things Work Together’ hit stores on September 22nd, 2017. It features Tori Kelly, Ty Dolla Sign, and Kierra Sheard, among others.
