    Thanks Tyler for sharing such an uplifting and inspiring word. This was very timely and on point for me.....brought tears. I will continue to stay the course and remain prayerful while I prepare for the shift. Again, thanks and keep pursuing and inspiring. Be Blessed!

    I so enjoy your talks, they give such good insperation and hope. I Have been a labor and delivery nurse for 20+ years. Five years ago, I went back for my Masters degree to specialize in midwifery. I've had 2 jobs since then, loved both, one of them had to layoff because of finances, the other was about to kill me with 100 hours a week, no family time, not good. I pray daily and cry out to God to show me my purpose in life. I currently work as a nurse in labor/delivery, but because it such busy place, I'm hardly able to do nursing duties anymore, ie: lifting heavy epiduralized women, running a pt in a heavy bed down to the OR because the baby is distress, turning their dead weight over when the baby's heartrate drops....Yes all this for 20 years has caused hearniated and ruptured discs in my back. Daily pain. I still feel I can be a midwife, nothing more precious than watching a new mom or dad hold their new baby the first time and see the joy they are experiencing. That is what I feel my purpose is. However, I haven't found anywhere that I can practice. I loved hearing you inspirational words, and as a Christian, I can tell you I trying to give it to God and let him guide me, it's been 8 months now without doing midwifery. Miss miss my patients, especially the teenager that feels she has nowhere to go, no one to turn to, they call me and ask for help with all their baby questions. There are so many children in our country that have no support and are scared when they find out they are pregnant, many families through them out, my job as a midwife is to be their mentor, their midwife, their teacher, and educate them as much as I can. After listening to how to be successful. I have a goal, be who God called me to be. I will pray he will open the door to a place that can use my knowledge and abilities. Thanks Tyler. Chris Rhoden

    This was a POWERFUL MESSAGE 4 many readers, especially me. I am ready to shine like a star but my environment is sometimes confined. I pray for darkness and bleak moments to be removed from my life....In Jesus name I pray, Amen! Thank you TP

    What better way to get someone to sit down to spend time with them, than to literally hide or lock someone away? I think about the story of Joseph (Yousuf, in Arabic). He was thrown in a hand-dug well and couldn't get out without a hand up from the Ishmaelites, then he was made a slave in a government official's house (and was constantly scrutinized), then he had even more freedom taken away by being thrown into a prison. And not only that, but later, he was forgotten by a fellow inmate who he helped while in prison, until an appointed time when the Pharaoh of Egypt needed a dream interpretted, then the man remembered Joseph who had the gift of discerning what dreams meant. Joseph was only remembered because the Cup Bearer, seeing the Pharoah's distress, thought he could get another promotion and get out of the wine tasting business which was a hazardous career, since there was always an enemy or jealous family member in the Royal House who would like to see Pharaoh dead. My point is this: sometimes we wonder why we may be going through what seems like insurmountable trouble and hardship, especially when we really try harder than most to do what's right, responsible, and remain humble. When we get to the point where we see life can be bitter and then more bitter, that's when we begin to see that the only thing that balances the bitterness of life is the sweetness of God, who's full of Grace and Truth. Then we also realize that where God has chosen to set us down is really upon His Mercy Seat, where we can begin to receive his guidence. Then we see that the land that He has taken us to was to place us in a position of power where we are peerless as warriors for change, where we are strong and uneffected by the world around us, unshakeable in our faith in God and ourselves, and a light of salvation and knowledge for our family and those friends we make along the way in life. Your Friend, Fatima

    I uderstand I may be hidden for a reason, but I know now God wants me to move I just don't know where I'm about to go. he said in deuteronomy for me to go up and posses my land. I'm asking so that I may receive it, I am seeking so that I might find it, and now I am knocking so that the door can come open. In the name of Jesus and for his name sake I am asking for favor to be put in a position to do more of God's work and that's helping his people so that we can continue to up lift his kingdom, and this is what i claim in Jesus name that I shall find favor somewhere in your company. Open says Jesus

    Yes, Tyler in the mean time I will prepare....for when that day comes I want to be ready. yes Tyler many not know of my copywrited poems, many just pushed them to the side, many did nto listen to the studio made verison on the cd....Yes, Tyler continue to know that my day has to be coming...I had a live radio interview, got nervous on the mic and messed up the opportunity. That situation told me that God new I was not ready for what I would surely face in the public eye. Many of family have under estimated me, many people under estimate my God given talent but I am still alive leaning on God's direction...Yes, help will come my way and I will walk to help other Dartrisha's out there thru my poems 'Chapters of my Book of LIfe'. Thank you Tyler
