Mr. Perry, I understand what you are saying but that's not my problem I don't think. I have always tried to hide myself all through my life. As a child I didn't have nice things or a good family life. I was abused mentally, physically, and sexually as a child. I felt very ugly, worthless, ashamed, because I was told I was those things growing up. I was raped by a man I call my sperm donor and was told by him he couldn't accept me as a daughter only as a lover. He never paid for it but I was beaten because I told someone yes by my mother. I was taken away from her after I went to school with a broken arm and n*** with many bruises on me. From the age of 13 to 18 I lived in a group home my mother never came see me or even called me. I met a man who was many years older than me and done thing and stayed with him even though I didn't love him but I got pregnant so I married him we have 3 kids together, we are divorced my children are older and all have moved back home to Houma, Louisiana where we are from. My marriage wasn't great but the last draw was when my youngest son had to help get his dad off of me and save me from him. I moved here to KY. Hoping to start over and live a better life. Many things has happened since 2005 when I moved here. My grandson died in 2010 at the age of 2 months, I tried to end my life but the God lord said no no I'm not done with you yet. I gave my life to the Lord, I don't feel like I want to be dead any more but here lately the struggles have been making me feel as if i'm at my ropes end. I am 800 miles away from my kids I haven't seen them in 3 years. I work in a dead end job making only 12.50 an hour in debt up to my ears. My daughter is pregnant again and I can'tt go down to see this grandson come into this world because I can't afford to miss a day of work and I don't have the funds to go down. All these things I hide to myself and so much more. I have remarried and my husband and I live separate lives it seems he doesn't share his life with me and I struggle daily to make ends meet, I don't get no help from him, he has a house we live in that is still in his and his ex-wife name. I have nothing to show for myself but I car I can barely afford. I never tried to put myself out there and I most certainly don't believe notice me. I hide my darkest fears and I cry daily and don't feel as if anyone really knows my heart or me. My scars are deep my heart is shattered and the only thing that gives me hope is my Love for God because when I sat home alone while my husband was out with his friends partying after my grandson died he was here he saved me. Sometimes I go without eating just to pay my bills or help my kids when they need it. So scared to let it out and be notice do you have advice for a woman who has been lost for so many years.
Rhonda, my prayers are with you and your family. You do have a lot going on in your life. I can relate although my experiences are different. What I have found is that I had to stop looking to others and look within myself. It sounds like you've done that, but go a little deeper. The only way to get there is to ask God for help in knowing your true self, spiritual self. If there is chaos in our life then there is pain within. Take the steps to heal yourself; heal your soul. Forgive everyone that has hurt you; forgive all the unfair things done to you; forgive all the people who have betrayed you and know that love is the most powerful energy in the Universe. Love yourself. Take time to meditate - sit quietly letting go of all thoughts and be aware of the silence in your mind and body and just breathe - do this for about 10-15 minutes a couple times a day. Start using words that will speak good into your life. Read books by Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra and others like them - The Four Agreements is a good book to read, too. You are loved more than you may realize.
that was the most inspiration I have ever received Mr.Perry.I always told myself the reason the world wont hear my story is because GOD is keeping it from me. but now that I am nineteen I have realized that GOD didnt want me to partake in certain things that would taint my soul more than I have been lately, I would have been blind if I had started in my youth. I can see clearly now and I pray everyday for GOD to send me someone who will help me because I can sing, I write everything from songs to movie scripts but because of my environment and financial situation I find myself stressed out. My goal is just to have something really good to present to GOD on judgement day as far as the good works I have done and the lives I have helped in the name of Jesus. If there is anyway you can give me tips that would help I would gladly appreciate it. GOD bless.
I am so inspired by you, so many things have gone wrong in my life and listening to your stories and words of encouragement is like turning on that little light bulb. I can make it, I can do it, I can achieve it. I am running after my dreams against all odds. God bless you even more.
Enjoyed inspired words referencing been hidden. Thanks for sharing.
Thank You! Truly, both this message and you are inspirational to me. Everything said was confirmed in my spirit. I believe God does save the best for last. In most cases, He speeds up the process just a little for His children. I won't get weary because I know I'm doing well :) God bless you Sir, Travis.
thanks tyler for all the inspiration that you give to me to God be the glory one day in my life before i leave this earth, i would like to meet you in person to tell you face to face how much i appreciate you and foor the person that yoou are. one day i pray. God Bless You
OMG. This is me. An under estimated hidden treasure. It makes so much sense now.... wow... I have been doing all i can to try and make it out here. Ive gone to school and got my degree and have been doing paid and unpaid projects. Writing, producing, directing and editing shows and projects on all levels and people would say thank you and keep going. Even though many refer me to other people and I've created a name for myself in my small city or circle of people. Im still trying to make it because my ultimate goal is to supply people in other countries clean water and sewage systems so they can live normal lives. They are being robbed of natural God give resources because greedy people want their money. Its not right. Now i also want to be wealthy to live a comfortable life but i really just enjoy what i do. I love directing, writing and producing. Camera operating and editing are my least favorite but i do those the most, now. Anyway... I see that God has hidden me. Thats ok because i like being behind the scenes i just want to be in the right environment as i hid. Thanks again tyler.
Thank you soo much for the inspirational corner because it is soo encouraging to my spirit,(wait, i say on the Lord and He shall strengthen thine heart.) Hidden really blessed me, i learned that God never forgets about us but at the right time we shall come forth as pure GOLD to glorify him. THANK YOU TYLER PERRY for listening to God
One day....some day...
For some reason the word p*** was bleeped as if it were a bad word...P-L-U-G...(In case it bleeps it again)...lol If it bleeps it again, just know I wasn't using bad words. Thanks! :-)
I stumbled onto these videos and I don't even know how I did it. I'm a bit flabbergasted because I wasn't looking for them, and I can't remember the thought process that caused me to even click on the link to SEE a video ... I think I was on your website to join the mailing list (because I get your updates on Facebook). At any rate, as a person who helps members of step-families to gain practical solutions for success in their blended families, I had kind of walked into territory that many were not walking in. When I started Blended Family Moments I knew about the ministry side of it. I didn't know so much about how the business side of it was supposed to work. But God has been opening doors for BFM! ...I won't ramble much further because this is starting to sound sort of like a shameless p*** lol but I will say that I can identify with what you are saying, and I am very encouraged and even more optimistic about what will occur through my diligence with Blended Family Moments and God's favor. Thanks! I'm glad I stumbled upon this page :-)
I clearly understand your convincing message but I am running out of time. I am loaded with literary material, not ideas but manuscripts including poetry and a whole book of humor. I have published a small book which never got exposure. I need someone to evaluate some of my work and tell me what to do. If you say you are ananimous at times,then where does leave someone like me? I
Ok, I feel even more encouraged!!!! Thank you so for being so transparent. I really needed this word!!! Thank you so much!!!
