Calling Us Higher

At Dr. Maya Angelou’s memorial service, First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech blew my mind. Oprah’s words were phenomenal. Ms. Tyson's reflections were heartwarming. Lee Ann Womack sang my favorite song, “I Hope You Dance”. Valerie Simpson made me want to shout for joy. But it was something that former President Bill Clinton said that shook something in me. He was talking about her life and all that she had done. All of her books, poems and accolades. She worked with civil rights giants including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He went on and on and then he said, “On her 40th birthday Dr. King was assassinated.” I thought, to myself, “Dear God, she had done all of that by 40.”

I'm 44, I'm behind… LOL. I got so inspired. Her life was such an example to all that you can achieve, whatever you'd like, no matter where you came from. Sitting in that chapel I could hear her voice on my phone as it had been many times. The conversation would always start with "Hello you brilliant man". She made me light up and feel like I could do anything. That was her gift to us all. And above the beauty of the celebration of her life yesterday, more than anything in that room, what I felt most was her life calling us all higher.

God, thank you for allowing us to have shared this planet with Dr. Maya Angelou.

    After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster of LOTTO SPELLS, Lottery Spell, jackpot win on either a scratch off ticket, ex lover back, MONEY VOODOO SPELLS CONTACT DR akugbe all your pains will be over today on his email

    God Bless You Tyler!! My heart goes out to Bobbi Kristina and her family..Again many of us are praying for Bobbi Kristina, travailing in the spirit. Her father Bobby Brown I know is trusting and believing in God because God has the last say so. Tyler, this may be a crazy what I'm about to say or ask you. Anyway, here it goes...If there are any family members or friends in Bobbi Kristina hospital room who have any doubt should be removed. Tyler, I'm believing having crazy faith as Jesus called Lazarus from the dead he can do the same for baby Bobbi Kristina! There should be only and I mean only those in her room at her bedside with radical faith praying in the Holy Ghost, travailing in the spirit..Speaking and quoting scriptures directly to her spirit man. Speaking that "SHE SHALL LIVE AND NOT DIE TO DECLARE THE GLORY OF THE LORD!!! The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much!!! Many of us I believe are fasting and praying on her behalf...Tyler I'm praying that those surrounding her can get a prayer through to throne of God coming boldly to the Throne of Grace that me obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Heb 4:16) Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1) Tyler, I'm typing this message to you By Faith in God to give to her father Bobby Brown..THEY NEED NO DOUBTERS IN HER ROOM DOESN'T MATTER WHO THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBTERS.....I PRAY RIGHT NOW THAT Bobbi Kristina room BE SATURATED WITH THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST IN JESUS NAME AMEN!! I LOVE YALL GOD LOVES YOU MORE PRAY WITHOUT CEASING! Ms.Proverbs

    Dear Tyler, It's been so very long since I posted on your site, but I do read all of your messages that pop into my inbox at an email address which I rarely use. I only check it to read your messages. Your messages for the most part make me smile. I often wish that I could have your outlook on life but I no longer do. I have worked most of my adult life in the healthcare field, until I had an accident several years ago. I suffer from chronic pain daily and am on a very small pension. I often don't have food to eat but for some reason that part doesn't bother me much. Having doctors tell you that you are not going to get better when you would can think about nothing but going back to work is devastating. I'm also living in a situation that nobody should have to endure. When you rent a room in someone's home and you don't have the finances or means to look elsewhere you pretty much have to endure their treatment of you. I don't ever wish this situation on anyone. I've spent many months trying to find a physician will help me end my life, nobody should have to suffer like this because like you, I believe that every person deserves to be treated with respect and kindness and that nobody should have to live in this much pain. I often think that you and I are the only ones who think that way but I can honestly say that I've never met everyone on the planet so many others might also think this way. Most days I frown when I realize that God has allowed me to wake up another day but some days I pop one of your dvds in the player and I forget about it all for a couple of hours. I don't just watch the movie, I watch everything on the dvd. I want you to know that for the time I have left on this planet that I do appreciate your words and work. I pray that God continues to bless you as you are one of a kind sir.

On the eve of my birthday and after calling off a relationship that wasn't good but that I was SOOO engulfed in, in tears and so much gratitude & appreciation, I thank you Tyler for this God-send email. I thank God that you move as God directs because God is always right on time and you are too. I am without words and will be prayerfully reading this email for days over my life. I praise God for keeping me alive and well for 42years. I have seen struggle and am alone physically again but I Know the Almighty is with me. Thank you so much Tyler for my priceless birthday gift. And CONGRATULATIONS on your new precious addition to your wonderful family!!! I know more & more blessings are right around the corner for you.

    Tyler, I just put up a new site on Teaching people to hear God for themselves. godunmaskedtoday.org I would appreciate any comments. Learn to silence the negative voices and hear God better! Basic Spiritual warfare; Sing Halleluyah softly over and over until you get peace of mind. God inhabits our praises. You don't have to believe it. Just do it. God said if one did that He would inhabit their praises and BE with them. God doesn't lie. Try It. It will work every time. When Peace is achieved then You have His attention and He has Yours. SNUGGLE ! Be at peace in Daddy's presence. Thanks Tom

    Tyler, Trust and believe I always watch it live and I record to have for my records. I will watch it over and over again. When there is nothing on TV I will watch my recording. I always watch the night shows live. I'm waiting to 9:00pm with my snacks to watch " The Haves and Have Nots".
