Can I talk to you for a second?

I want to talk to all of you who are taking care of the kids, taking care of your husbands and wives, girlfriends or boyfriends, to those of you who are working to make ends meet, to those of you who are worried about everyone and everything else, so much so that you have taken yourself off the list. I need to tell you something.  If you're not at the top of your own list then you are doing all those people in your life a huge disservice.

My mother had diabetes.  She lost her eyesight, lost her kidneys and eventually lost her life. Sometimes I get so mad and angry that she is not here.  What I know for sure is that God does not make any mistakes. So, I accept His will.  I think the thing that makes me the angriest is Diabetes is preventable and reversible. Did you know that with diet and exercise, lots of people have prevented and even reversed it?  I kid you not. I'm serious!  Diabetes is not just "a little sugar" like the old folks say, it is a slow killer. The good news is that you don't have to have it.

You know this is hard for a man like me! I gave my mother everything she ever thought she could want, but what I could not give her was her health.  What I could not give her was the mindset to want to put herself first. I couldn't will her the strength to take care of herself. She accepted diabetes as her reality and it became her life and her death. She was only 64.Is this you? Are you putting everything and everybody before yourself? Before your health? Please, don't let your loved ones go through what my sisters, brother and I have gone through because of losing her. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!

Cut back on the starches, sodas, sweets, and go for a run if you can. If you can't, go for a walk. Get active.  Commit to putting yourself on your list. You have to be first before you can help anyone else.

Celebrity trainer, Jimmy Pena, wrote a great book called "PrayFit". This is a good read to get you motivated and started.  If you want to take your life back, this book can help you. God bless!

    Hello Mr Tyler, just thinking about your CNN Interview with Piers Morgan about your Childhood & growing up with a Father who beat you up. You told Mr Piers Morgan you forgave your Father in your Twenties. But I would like to advise you as someone who looks up to you as my Hero & Inspiration to not only forgive your Father but I want you to go an Extra mile to love your Father,bond with your Dad in his old age & be his good friend. Mr Tyler I know your Late Mother would be very proud of you for loving,bond & being good Friends with your Father. By God's Grace you too will be a Father & Dad too to your unborn Children. I believe if you show your Father love & be his friend it will impact positively on you in your relationship with your Children as friends & in bonding with unborn Children in Future. We sin & hurt God so many times but God forgives us and still loves us. I see your Dad as a man who grew up without love & didnt know how to show love to you his Son. PleaseI believe you should not only forgive your Dad but also show him love,bond with your Dad & be his good Friend. Mr Tyler by God's Grace youtoo will be a Father to your own Children too. Take out time from your busy schedule to spend time with your Father on a regular Basis for Breakfast,Lunch or Dinner which ever is ok for both of you . Find out what your Dad likes to do & join him in doing it . The Bible said Honour thy Father & Mother that it maybe well with You. The Bible didn't say Honour a good Father & dishonour a Bad Father. So Mr Tyler give your Dad the Honour of attending your Movie Premiers & screenings & walking the Red Carpet with you and be proud having y you. He is your Father,you only have 1 Father. Honour your Father by going on a Vacation with him,because in future u too will have take your Children on Family Vacations,which will help you to bond & have a healthy Friendship & relationship with your kids. I believe if you show your Father love & be his friend it will impact positively on you in your relationship with your Children as friends & in bonding with unborn Children in Future. Please Mr Tyler I know your Late Mother would be very proud of you for loving,bond & being good Friends with your Father.

    Hi Mr. Perry: I don't usually comment or post, thoughI love all of your shows. I, along with family members watched, For better or Worse on last night. You did not go wrong with Bobbi Kristina, I was surprised, she is a natural. May God continue to bless you, Mr Perry in all of your endeavors. Keep Him first in your life and He will do just that. Blessings!!! Elizabeth

    Wow, Tyler....as I am reading this message from April "Can I talk 2 U 4 a second?" I tell myself why bad things happen to good and loving people. I have been in the presence of the Lord. My text goes off...to receive a message that my Spiritual mom is in Gwinnett Medical Hospital in Lawernceville, GA...Roxana is just a healthy person, but she is a work acoholic. She is always doing for others. Please keep her in prayer. Thank you for speaking TRUTH in this message. Both of my parents die with diabetic. My dad die with diabetes and heart failure after 2 transplants at age 76 and my mom passed away with Kidney failure and diabetes at the age of 72. I praised the Lord that I do not have DIABETES. I am asking the Lord to heal my body everyday...even the Doctor found LUPUS...I declare that I am healed by the blood of the Lamb. I don't claim it and I don't believe in it. IT's a word. Our parents didn't know the impact of the word of God can do. I have faith that I am healed. My organs are in pain, but I am still stand by the testimony of God is healing me everyday. IT's for his Glory. I know the purpose God has for our life is not over. Its just the beginning for a victorious journey. Be blessed.
