Mr. Perry I was drawn to your website just now after viewing your interview on Oprah in which you candidly spoke of the abuse you endured as a child. And how you had to let go of the bitterness. I too at age 55 have been confronted by a dear sister at Church that I had a root of bitterness and she was right. Did not want to hear it, but she was right. I thought I had forgiven everyone I could think of but mine was deep, like yours. Mine was toward Authorty, today, yesterday and back then. The Lord helped me trace it and it all stemmed from the abuse as child. There was a lot of cleansing that has gone on this last week, and I am thankful and your interview with Oprah led me to this site. I viewed your message "There is an appointed time for everything "and "Maybe your being hidden on purpose." These spoke to me and confirmedbwhat God has been saying to me for I was struggling in surrendering all to Him 100%. There have been 30 years of open doors suddenly closing, closing, closing and I was doing everything in my might and in my prayer to keep those doors of steel from completely closing on me. I heard the Lord clearly say Matthew 5:25 yet I was contriving ways of taking a detour on my way to obeying Matthew 5:25. I realize the doors have to close and there is no going back. There is one thing to hear this same message from brothers and sisters at Chuch because as you may know it does not always come across in purity and one is not always in the right spirit to recieve it. However, God works in mysterious ways and He could not have been speaking to me more clearly, but through your messages.. He had already given me the skinny in His word but made sure I did not misinterpret what He needed me to completely understand, the doors are closed. Thank you! And may God continue to bless you and fill you with His love and Holy Spirit.
I normally don't post comments, I share what I learn with others usually through social media. That being said, I know what it is to be in one of the dry places. One of the tight places where you can almost hear the doors slamming in succession. Hear the creak of windows being forced shut, that have been open for so many others for so long. Most of all I know what it is to slowly watch people give up on me. Even still, fighting depression, there was something that God placed inside of me that refuses to quit. That calls my spirit into alignment with His Word and his Will. What my spirit hears now, is the sound of new construction. I couldn't hear it while I was focusing on what wasn't working. God had to seal the used up places, to construct the entrance that is just for me. All I can say is Hallelujah. Thank you Jesus.

Praying we cross paths with you soon Mr. Perry to assist us and if not send your prayers up for us as well. God bless and continue to set the example.
I sure could do with some prayers as I need a breakthrough in my life!! I am so blessed by God having been given Holy Spirit inspired writings. Sometimes I am at my wits end and asking God why. I have sown a lot of seeds but still believing God will make a way for me.
It was only him that blessed us in our life. Only him! Thank You Father. For when we are weak, you are strong. And your plans for us do always turn out to be the very best for/to us. Thank you for being God/Lord of all. Always on time. :-) THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD...
NOW Faith is.... #MyTemptation :-) ...LoL... :-)
Hello Mr. Perry. I normally don't post comments but after listening to your genuine words of wisdom, I felt it was a must. You are truly a blessing and I thank God for leading me to your website because as you said, he strategically lines things up in your life. I recently watched your play "Madea Gets A Job" and it helped me to realize some things. I have since turned in my resignation while praying and waiting for God to reveal to me my purpose. In this economy, some people would panic but I know that God has something spectacular in my near future and he used you and your inspirational words to validate it. Thank you and may God continue to bless you.
Dear Mr Perry iam just going to be very honest with you sir iam so very proud of the blessing that's on your life .. i have had a very hard life and i dont really know how to express the pain thats inside of me so each day i sit alone and i just cry i cry over the smallest thing i cry if i see people hurting i came across your page and i cant believe that iam posting this comment which i know that you will never see but just hearing you say how nobody gave you a chance i feel that same way now.
Hi - I was led to your site by what I read in Joel Osteen's book, "It's Your Time".... I read through Joels' book, "I Declare: 31 Declarations...." My "payback" is the link to the play list so you can listen at no cost :) I plan to be more financially successful in the future and provide to Tyler Perry's foundation as well as my own :) God bless, Laura
You are deep, my friend. I am loving the loving humanity of Good Deeds (and some outstanding acting). God has worked too in my life, and what you speak is the truth. Would love to meet you one day. Much love. My soul to your soul.
Tyler, Thank you man of God. I didn't know these inspirational messages were on here but this one and the one about losing mom hit too close to home and left me in tears. I shouldn't have made it past my mother's womb, years of abuse and neglect growing up near Albany, NY. I have had deaths of loved one, a bought with cancer, failed marriages, homeless, 1, 2, 3x.... My life felt like a failure. I always grew up around the faith. My mother and grandmother gave me Jesus and just turning 40; I still feel like...God what gives? One failure after another, everything I try doesn't work, out of funds to finish my degree, have books on the inside of me, I counsel and minister to people Biblically and psychologically but feel sorry for them and don't charge because most of them are poor anyway. I live my life tirelessly for others and feel often over looked by God. I have had many ministers speaking prophetically over me; I know my gifts and calling, I have prayed people out of wheel chairs, out of coma's, and from their death beds through the Holy Spirit operating through me. Operated in deliverance... yet...every door is shut. I have dreams and visions for ministry and businesses, inventions that if you knew one...even you would buy it! I am close to finishing up one and it is so hard and difficult for me ALL the time. Its like the Scripture in Isaiah 66... where He will bring to labor but she has no strength to bring to birth. I'm tired. I am everybody's cheerleader, counselor, help with their bills, groceries, let people stay with me and can't even seem to help myself, but that's how my life has always been. I'm not holier than though...just love to bring the Gospel to others knowing where I came from but it has been a long and challenging walk. This past weekend I thought... I can't do this anymore... I am losing everything... but worse off...I am losing my hope, and then I found myself on your inspirational messages.. Thank you for these messages Tyler, please don't stop posting them, I am typing this in tears because I thought all the doors closed was the enemy and I know God wants the glory but your words tonight.... they gave me strength and hope to press on a little further...knowing He is trying "like a maze" to get me where I need to be. Thank you.
Jennifer your message was powerful, hearting-filled and a direct refelction of my sruggles.....keep on pressing your story is worth the wait!!!!
