Tyler; Thank you for speaking God's word to me. God told me, in Madea's voice, to write a book on weight loss and health from a Christian perspective. I was talking to Jerry about it and when I hung up (I was ironing and watching one of your DVD's) I heard Madea's voice say "He jus' tole you what to do..." I am sorry to say that was two years ago. I have started the book, and God keeps putting it on my heart. He is bringing people into my life to move me along, even when I try to push it aside. I have watched this message before, and I know that I have been a little like the dude inside the whale... Like Jonah, I think that I have probably run the opposite direction, trying to get things "done" so that I can start concentrating on the book.... But messages like this remind me that I need to focus only on what He has instructed me to do, and then He will take care of all of the other things in my life that drown out the real calling that God has for me (kids, bills, work, laundry....) . It is so easy to become like Martha, busy being "busy" and not really sitting at the Lord's feet listening to Him. Thank you for being transparent about why you are a success- the Grace of God. I am sure that may not fit into what the media may consider "politically correct" and hence, has been censored out of magazine articles and interviews in order not to offend anyone. However, like Madea, who never worries about being politically correct, but just speaks the truth, you have taken the time to "set the record straight" for those who want to listen. I admire your candor and unyielding stand for God. You have not forgotten who has raised you up, as many of the old testament Kings did. Because you continue to remember that all that you have comes from Him, God is free to trust you with many blessings. Your work and your life is a blessing to so many. I hope that I can follow your lead and I can only hope and pray that God will use me in the same way that you have allowed Him to use you. Thank you again for the encouragement to follow the dream that the Lord has given to me. May your life be richly blessed- Suzanne
I feel Tyler Perry's greatest work will be the story and movie of his' life. I'm looking forward to seeing it. I know it's coming.
Good afternoon, I hope you had a great lunch....etc.God bless you!! I have had such a long and difficult time. I look at a successful people and they donot have a lot of love for the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. I love Job, however he was very humble. I donot see a lot of truly humble Christians. I had a pastor tell me recently that loving God is not enough, people want you to have money. Please pray for me....
Keep em coming Tyler. God bless you sir for yet another marvelous, inspiring, heartfelt video! I felt you on this one, for real!
So inspirational. Keep the inspirational videos coming Tyler. Thank you so much for posting. The videos are helping me with my depression. Love your work.
Tyler, I am proud to call you "friend" in the purest sense of the word! I realize that the message was spoken over a year ago, but I receive my confirmation today! Your message on "How To Be Successful" was inspiring and uplifting! April 26, 2011 I became paralyzed after a motor vehicle accident; however, I made a conscious decision to not let my disability become my obituary! I decided I WILL NOT LET GO! I WILL NOT GIVE UP! CAN'T STOP, WON'T STOP! THANK YOU TYLER, FOR REAFFIRMING MY CONVICTIONS! MAY YOU CONTINUE TO BE AN INSPIRATION FOR MANY! MAY GOD'S GRACE, FAVOR, & BLESSINGS CONTINUE TO BE UPON YOU!****LORD GOD, WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR GRACE!!!!
Thank you Mr. Perry for this special message. I just watched you on Oprah; I don't watch much day time T.V. and so I missed the episodes you had appeared on in 2010 regarding your abuse. I want to thank you very much for sharing your story for you truly are an inspiration. I was an abused child, who is healing from the pain as an adult, and your story gave me strength. My dream was always to be in film and music, but as a child of abuse I never thought it possible. This year, after years of being an atheist, I have turned my life back over to God. I have planted the seed of being a screenwriter and since then God has, of course, done some amazing things regarding my healing and my dreams, including bringing your story into my world (with the help of Oprah). I want you to know that I find you to be and incredible gift to this earth and I plan to work with you one day. Many blessings. Danielle Rodriguez
Are there any videos more recent than 14 months ago? THANK YOU for what you have shared. Thank you. I am looking forward to more in the near future.
JESUS IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
Things have been so difficult that I felt like giving up on my dream. After seeing your video, I feel inspired to get back on track. Lord knows I've been low on encouragement lately. I was in church and this beautiful older lady came up to me and told me "encourage yourself." She went on to say that sometimes there's no one around to do that for us. I must also admit that I have been guilty of trying something, then jumping to something else, then back to that. Thanks for letting me know what I've been doing wrong. I'm going to focus on one thing and give it my all. When it comes down to it, I know I'm here to inspire others through my writing. I can't see myself doing anything else with my life. I've tried to let it go but it's always with me. I was watching the movie, "Eat, Pray, Love" and there's a scene where two women are walking down the street. One tells the other, "you are a writer and you should be writing something." I sat there, mesmerized by that statement and held on to it as if she were speaking directly to me. I know I should be writing something. I do love GOD and I know with His help, I can do what He put me on this earth to do. Much love to you and those who surround you Tyler...
God bless you. I just sent a plea for help on your online family. I just noticed this section and listened to your inspirational thoughts. Each word spoken word was true. I began to cry because I could hear the Holy Spirit confriming everything you said. Many time I've wanted to stop believing but that spirit within won't let me. Thank you for being an instrument in encouragement. Keep up the good fight.
Hi Tyler, it's inspiring watching your videos, was thinking when I'm on my feet, I'll actually record some thoughts to remind me where I've been and where I am at that point. Keen on seeing Temptaions, not sure when it will screen in south Africa but thank you for all the good work you do. Somewhere, it touches and inspires someone. God bless you.
