When God Asks A Question

I just wrote this to a very dear friend of mine that is going through a tough time. I thought I'd share it with you too.

When I read the bible, I love when God asks a question. He doesn't ask for Himself. He already knows the answer. He asks us because he wants us to understand and get it.

He asked Adam, "Where art thou?" Sometimes we don't realize where we are in life and it takes the voice of God to remind us.

He asked Moses, "What is that that you have in your hand?" Many times the very blessing we need is already in our grasp.

He asked Malachi, "Will a man rob God?" It's so easy to give our time to everything but the work of The Lord.

He asked Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?" Sometimes you may think a situation in your life has died, but God is reminding you that it can live. It's not dead. It's not over.

He asked a lame man, "Wilt thou be made whole?" God already knows He has the power to deliver you but you need to want to be delivered.

He asked Abraham, "Is there anything too hard for God?"

Think about that as you're going through life. I don't care what it looks like. There is nothing too hard for God to do.

Praying for you today. Your friend and brother,
Tyler

    Hello TP, more grease to your elbows. I love your spirit, you are truly talented and blessed. As woman of strong faith, I was concerned with the g** character in "the haves and the haves not", but I must confess that I was very sorry for him and understand Veronica' s (his mom's) dilemma. I am glad your play is addressing an issue that tears us apart,especially in our Faith. I know of g** people that have strong faith,yet our religion strongly prohibits it. Personally I think being g** is a struggle that one must overcome like all other struggles like drinking, smoking or other vices, yet I acknowledge that some people have tried their best and just ,may be cannot overcome this issue. I look forward to how it will be resolved in the have's and have not" I pray the good lord will give you strength and wisdom to address this properly and in a way that pleases God. I love you TP and I thank God for you.

    Hey Tyler, I always look forward to reading your messages, they are very encouraging especially to me. This message 'When God asks a Question' really brought me back to reality, for the past one week i have been going through issues and i was so over whelmed i forgot that there is a God who speaks. Thank you and God Bless you. We love you.

    What if you don't know the question that God is asking of you. Because there is so much that's being asked of you. It's hard to do it all and overwelming to think of the journey ahead. I know you're going to say don't give up but that's really hard right now. Thanks T.P.

    Hello, Tyler. I've posted many comments, hoping you'd read them. I' m a woman of great faith and I'm posting another one. I'm a gifted string artist, and in 2008, Bishop Paul and Debra Morton bought a portrait of yours I made with strings and gave to you. My name and number are written on the back. I'm a gifted aspiring writer, and God promised to open doors for me to make movies. I've written 15 original screenplays including family animated like the LION KING, inspirational and historical fictions. I'm from Nigeria, and my background and experiences make my scripts unique and exotic. People are hungry for exotic stories, and not the same old. I'm MADEA'S FAN, and I couldn't resist writing a screenplay for her. It's 106 pages, and when you see it, you'll be impressed. I also wrote two episodes of FOR BETTER OR WORSE that are simply riveting. I say with humility, yet confidence that when you see my scripts, you'd want me on your team. Thank you.

    I would first like to say that you are one of the most inspirational black men that I know of  My name is Tyesha T. Peak I am a 25 year old woman that has had her trials and tribulations as I am sure we all have had. I have been homeless in a time in my life and I have had the biggest dream since the age of 12 years old. I want to know and try and receive help to make this dream a reality. There are a lot of shelters in the city of Atlanta but not many that treat individuals that have come across hard times with a sense of dignity. They do provide shelter temporarily but they do not provide the means for an individual to better ones self so that the possibilities of homelessness become limited not increasing. I want to open a shelter where I can add rehab and GED and high school diplomas for those who do not have education. Also credit counseling for those who have poor credit in addition to providing employment to those who have experience in this nature of work. I am aware that you are and influetional man and also a person who has experienced a deal of heart ache your self. This has been a dream that I have been holding onto for quite some time .Any help that you could provide I would appreciate with the deepest of my soul. Thanks for even reading this.  My home phone or cell is . Thank you so much.

    I just read the message you left on August 19, it truly touched me because I've been going through a lot the last past month financially. I haven't really had very much support emotionally, then theirs my condition making it hard finding a job I can physically do which don't make it no better, I feel like I'm at my wits end! But prayer and then seeing your message has me feeling some better, thank you I so appreciate those words of encouragement, God bless you.

    HI THIS IS TYLER'S MOTHER (I PRONOUNCE IT TYLA (TIE-LA) BECAUSE I DON'T REALLY LIKE THE NAME. I NAMED HIM EMMETT FOR A REASON. WHEN HE CHANGED HIS NAME, IT BROKE MY HEART BECAUSE I WASN'T THERE FOR HIM WHEN HIS FATHER BEAT HIM AND RAPED HIM. HE WAS MOLESTED WHILE I GOT MY HAIR AND NAILS DONE. AND SO NOW THAT I KNOW HE IS HURTING OTHER PEOPLE IT'S MY FAULT FIRST. I'M WRITING FROM THE GRAVE, CAUSE I CAN STILL SEE EVERYTHING WITH ONE MY ONE GOOD EYE. AND IF I COULD, I WOULD WALK TO MY SON AND SAY SORRY, BUT I ONLY HAVE ONE FOOT. I WILL NEVER SEE HIS CHILDREN. IF HE HAS ANY. CAUSE BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I THINK MY DEAR AND LOVING SON, MAY HAVE WANTED TO BE A GIRL. HE HAS A LITTLE SUGA IN HIS TANK. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. HE HAS A LITTLE SWING IN HIS PLAYGROUND IF YOU CATCH MY DRIFT. HE HAS LITTLE FRUITY IN HIS TOOTIE. AND I KNOW YOU ALL DON'T KNOW HIM LIKE THAT, AND I HOPE YOU WOULD KNOW THAT HE TRIES TO DO BETTER IN HIS LIFE, BUT HE CAN'T HELP IF HE'S GAY. ONE OF HIS FRIENDS BEFORE I DIED TOLD ME THEY HAD SEX TOGETHER AND YES IT WAS A MAN. I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY WILL DO THAT IF THEY BOTH HAVE THE SAME PRIVATE PARTS, WHAT CAN THEY DO TO PLEASE EACH OTHER. I WILL ALWAYS THINK ABOUT MY LIFE AND HOW I SUFFERED BEFORE I DIED. HOW HE GAVE ME MONEY ALL THOSE YEARS INSTEAD OF LOVE AND ATTENTION PEOPLE WHO COULD HELP ME LEAVE LONGER. PLEASE LOOK AFTER MY SON. DON'T PLAN ANYTHING LIKE STALKING HIM TO TAKE HIS LIFE, OR BLOWING UP HIS MANSION OR TOUR BUS, OR PRIVATE JET, OR HOME IN THE BAHAMAS AND IN LONDON. HE ALSO HAS ONE IN CALIFORNIA. HE PUTS THIS INFORMATION OUT, I'M NOT SURE IF HE REALLY DO WANTS TO BE SAFE. IF HE TELL YALL ALL HIS BUSINESS. I KNOW HE WAS HAVING SEX WITH THAT MODEL GIRL HE SHOWED ME TO BEFORE I DIED, NAMED GELILA BEKELE. SHE WAS TOO YOUNG FOR HIS OLD D*** ASS. I TOLD HIM THEY WAS GONNA PUT HIM IN JAIL FOR STATUTORY RAPE. BUT HE DON'T LIKE TO LISTEN TO ME. SO I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HIM ANYMORE BECAUSE MY LIFE IS OVER. I'M IN THE GRAVE, I'M DEAD. I DIED. I'M DECEASED. I'M NOT LIVING ANYMORE, I SUFFERED AND I'M GONE.. I'M AT MY FINAL DESTINATION. I WAS WORRIED ABOUT SOMEONE STALKING HIM. FOLLOWING HIM, HARASSING HIM. BUT WHEN I FOUND OUT WHO DO THAT TO OTHER PEOPLE, I THINK IT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED THE RIGHT WAY. MY SON HAS SO MUCH TO LEARN AND HE IS ABOUT TO BE 44 YEATS OLD THIS YEAR. HE NOT MARRIED, AND WILL NOT BE AS FAR AS I KNOW. AT LEAST NOT TO A WOMAN. SO IF YOU THINK YOU WANT TO BE WITH HIM GIVE HIM A STALK. BELOW IS THE CONTACT INFORMATION TO TYLER PERRY STUDIOS.

      How can this be Tyler's mom when she passed away in December of 2009 and writing from his Atlanta Georgia mansion no less, but to use his deceased moms name to say this was really sad! His life is his business like ever body else is theirs no ones perfect and what ever wrongs he may have in his life I pray that he addresses them before long like I myself am trying to address any that I have, because I'm sure no one wants to loose their soul especially when they've been through a h*** already here on earth!

    • Hi Momma Perry #1876642

      STOP PUTTING TYLER'S BUSINESS OUT THERE LIKE THAT. WE ALL HAVE A PAST AND DID SOME THINGS. WHAT'S DONE IS DONE!!! I KNOW I DID SOME THINGS TOO. BUT BONES DON'T TALK PEOPLE DO. SO LET THE BONES LIE WHERE THEY MAY. IF YOU WANT TO TELL SOMETHING. TELL US ABOUT YOU! TELL US ABOUT THE MOTHER WHO BIRTHED THE SEXY TYLER PERRY. WHAT TYPE OF CHILDHOOD DID YOU HAVE? WHAT WHERE YOUR EXPERIENCES? WHO TAUGHT YOU YOUR DEFINTION OF LOVE AS A CHILD? SHARE YOU FEELINGS, WISDOM AND INSITE ON WHAT YOU LEARNED IN THIS LIFE? MOMMA, IMMA CALL HIM. I CALLED BEFORE AND YOU'RE RIGHT THERE'S NO AUTOMATED ANSWERING SYSTEM..YOU KNOW OF ALL THAT HAPPENED TO HIM WHILE HE WAS GROWING UP, YOU KNEW. YOU KNEW HE WAS BEING MO LESTED AND YOU DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. YET HE TRIED TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE WHILE YOU SUFFERED. HE COULD HAVE LET YOU SUFFER AT YOU OWN EXPENSE. BUT IT WOULDN'T HAVE LOOKED RIGHT AWAY TO LET YOU SUFFER, HE DID THE RIGHT THING. I WONDER IF HE ENJOYED WATCHING YOU DIE AS YOU ENJOYED WATCHING HIM SUFFER AS A CHILD. DID YOU LIKE WATCHING YOU CHILDREN SUFFER OR WERE YOU THINKING OF YOUR OWN WELL BEING? I'M JUST WONDERING, NO DISRESPECT. BUT THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING HIM TO MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. THAT'S THE BEST THING ANY MOTHER OR PERSON CAN DO FOR ANOTHER SOUL. WHEN IM LED TO CALL HE BETTER BE AVAILABE!!
