Thank you ,very much for the inspiration to know that someone understand means the world only God knows and what comes from the heart reaches the heart.
As I sit here weeping at the different recorded messages all I can say is Thank you.. Now I know why I've chosen you to be my role model. I've said it once and I will say it again you are definitely an Elijah to me and I am your Elisha learning from your every word and example.. I'll love you for life. Everyone can value from the wisdom God's placed in you and I thank him for choosing someone as humble as you to use..
I have been in search of God all my life. My mother didn't take me to church, I went sometimes with friends of the family to different churches and I went to a few on my own as I got to be a teenager. I have never found a place to belong. I have four children and I have taken them to several churches also but we have not been lucky. Maybe I am looking for the wrong thing, idk but I know my children need something. I have one boy and three girls. They have a father that literally lives around the corner but chooses not to be in their lives. My youngest girl takes it the hardest. She is so hateful and mean and so sweet at the same time and I want to help her so bad but I don't know how. she loves her dad so much but he doesn't give it back, she has contemplated suicide and spent a week in a mental hospital, he never showed up. My 19 yr old who had some yrs with her father before he changed also tried to commit suicide the same yr. the middle girl was born with a birth defect and use to ask me all the time why doesn't my daddy love me, shes had over 33 surgeries and he has probably been to 3 of them. The only one that doesn't seem to be too affected is my son who is 13 but I see him reaching out to other men in my family for a father figure. I know a relationship with God would help them so much but I don't know how to give them that, I don't even have it. I don't know what to do anymore.
I have been where you are with 4 children as well. My children have the same issues as yours. Including the evil but loving one. Im here to testify that God and a steady loving Church is the key to it all. I chose to bring my kids to the alter every sunday . Now the evil one is grown very loving and tides at church as well as takes herself to the alter every sunday. She's 23 now just broughther own home graduated from Cornel university is getting her masters at George town and the others are doing the same. I this to say with Gods help all things are possible
Tyler, thank you for your words of wisdom. It seems that the world is down on faith, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for speaking so highly of your faith. God is so good and he always makes a way out of no way. I recently lost the use of one of my arms and I must say has been extremely life changing, but GOD has been my everything in life and will continue to be the forefront in my life. No one will hire me because of my arm situation, even though I have over 13 years of experience and a Bachelor and M***** degree to back my experience up. Without him, my path could have been so different (I may not be here to day). I thank for spreading such positivity and continuing to put God first. I wish you nothing but eternal success and happiness. May God continue to be the head of our lives and bless you in all aspects of your life. Be blessed and never stress because God will always make a way.
Ohh! Brother Perry you made my night. I just finished listening to all your messages and I want to thank you. I am 64 years old now and there are so many things I want to do before I \move to my eternal home and it seems I am moving slow. From tonight on I will concentrate on one thing at a time and I will do what I can with the little I have. I never cease to thank God but tonight my thank yous will spread to even thank God for the little things as well as the great. My children often thank me for the values I instilled in them. We did not have a lot of material things but we had love and that love comes back over and over now that I have grand and great grandchildren. I know that whatever God has for me is for me and I am standing on His Word and I will see my dreams fulfilled. Thank you so much and you are welcome to call me everyday or anyday you feel a need to talk with your mom. I can't take her place but I will make a good substitute. My mother left here when I was 13 and I still talk to her and my husband who has been gone for more than 22 years. God is a great God. Goodnight now son.
Okay, so I listened to your how to be successful video and ran accros this one. It made me think about me and my two son's, one 18 and 15. I love my boys but I sometimes wonder if my decisions and the choices I have made, how will they affect them. I am divorced and I moved to Georgia and have been here since 2004. I wanted a better life, a good life for them. So since I have been here on my own, I have worked two jobs and at one time I was working full time and going to school. I wanted to make things better for them and myself, I didn't want to settle for just being. I wanted more. At the time they would come home from school and I would be at work or class. Sometimes I feel guilty for leaving them. I struggle with what I should have or could have done. Did they feel alone? or abandoned? what went through their minds at those times. I always let them know I love them and I did communicate with them often. I just really hope and pray that was enough.
Hello Tyler, I just finished listening to your video messages and I enjoyed them all; they were indeed very inspiring and on point. Im glad you took time out to make them. I know they are a blessing to me and others as well. Take care ok?
Thanks for being so transparent, your growth through all of your pain has and is helping me to grow. I have a personal (career) question. Resigned from my teaching job, on the brink of a better position (Boys & Girls' Club) , want to make a greater positive impact in my church and community. Please give me suggestions.
I want to thank you for all of your comments. I needed to hear all of them and they blessed me. You are so right on all the comments you made and sometimes we have to be reminded of some of the comments that you made to help us with our belief in ourselves and who we really are verses what we think we are. God is the answer and I give God all the praise. I thank God for you and your God fearing Mother. With your mother's teaching, love and spiritual upbringing she brought forth a son that Blesses us all beyond measure. I do thank her.
Oh my yes. I lost my Grandmother who was my mother in ever sense of that description. She didn't birth me, but, she was is my reason. I had lived in America all my my life, have two sons wanted them to experience the other half of who they were. So, we come to Bermuda two days later I LOST my grandmother. Well, everyone says they can't believe how I dealt with it knowing how close we were. two years later my mother died. So, I have a son who has just come out the prison system after 1 and 1/2 years. He has a son is wanting to marry the lady who has two older children a 14 year old son and a 8 year old daughter. He really is trying very hard to stay on the right path. Now this is the prelude. We have bible study every week together. When I was unemployed at the beginning I was feeling angry lost and unproductive. Now we have study every week. I am financially looking after them. We have become very close. My younger son is a senior honors student leaving to further his education with scholarship in September. WOW. Blessed a true believer in the GRACE. "If you only believe." Sacrifice. Faith. I honor you Brothah. Again I thank you for being you.
Hi Tyler I thank God for your many talents.Because of your works I have been able to come out of situations.Your words of wisdom and encouagements or shall I say (MADEA's)have made some bad days be good days. May God continue to Bless you.
Hi Tyler I am a big fan of your work and really admire what you do.This is very familiar to me becuase growing up, it was just me and my mother who was a domestic worker and uneducated.But she tought me to believe in God and that in Him all things are possible and also to believe in myself.Today I'm a grown up young woman with a great job and I am now in turn taking care of my mother because she took care of me and was there when I needed her most.The greatest thing lesson I learnt from my mother was never to look down on the next person no matter how much you might think you have more than they do.She also tought me to accept my gift from God, if God wanted me to grow and die poor,then so be it, never wish for what I don't have instead work your b*** off to achieve your Goals.Thank you for taking your time to post these messages for us, it really means to a lot.God bless
Mr. Perry, I read your email about the kids that you helped during Christmas, and it was heartfelt then, but tonight when I looked at the video you posted about it....I just had to cry. I've been surrounded by kids all my life...none of my own, but tonight something clicked inside me. There are so many kids out there that really need people to just love them. I was raised by my Grandmother and Mother, and even though I knew they loved me by their actions, they never said it, and even though I wanted to tell them... I didn't know how. They died 11 months apart from each other. I was 14 then and I have lived every day regretting that I never told them I loved them. It left a hurt in me that I still can't get out. Both my sisters have 3 kids each and I vowed that I would always tell those kids that I loved them so they wouldn't have to grow up living with the same regret that I have. You can give your children everything on the shelf, but it doesn't and never will compare to that sincere "I love you". Thank you for expressing your care and generosity to those kids....and God knows, I truely admire your mother for raising you into the person you are. I now realize why God placed me around kids so much, and when I say so much, I mean my first job at age 14 was at a church day care...and I didn't apply, that's what they gave me through the Marc Morial program...I don't know if you ever heard of that. Then, at 15 I volunteered at a summer camp teaching 5yr olds, 16--17 tutoring kids after school and helping at yet another day care, 18 Vacation Bible School, and in between 15 and now my 3 nephews and 3 nieces. I used to look at this as a bad thing..."When am I going to get to live the single life with NO kids!?" is how I felt up until tonight. Yes, it is hard because my sisters depend on me for a lot involving the kids because the fathers aren't present, but God has a plan for these kids and I'm honored to be a part of it. I think I just figured out a piece of my purpose. Thank you!
