Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae Moore is the newest individual to share his story on iamsecond.com, a website featuring video testimonies of personal struggle, transformation and hope of celebrities and everyday people.
In the latest video featured on iamsecond.com, a website devoted to sharing the powerful testimonies of lives transformed through the Gospel, Lecrae Moore tells his own story of personal struggle and hope found in Christ.
All his life, Lecrae Moore wanted to feel a sense of significance. Growing up in a single parent home without a father, whom he never met, and a mother who was constantly working, he wrestled to find a sense of worth whether through his rapping or other activities.
To him, being a "well-manicured, good, all around student and person" was not going to help him find what he was looking for. So he chose a life of criminal and gang activity, drugs, theft, and alcohol instead.
"The people I looked up to were gangsters," he described on the site. "I wanted to be doing criminal activity so I kept rebelling and I kept doing worse."
But pretty soon after he was arrested for stealing in high school and put on a gang list, he wondered, "What am I doing with my life?" He felt like he didn't fit anywhere and was just a "misfit of a person."
