I have learnt not to cry over closed doors, not to cry over who God removed because he wants you to look to him, and for your life to be a testimony, waiting for my testimony, I know It's coming! God bless your messages
Hello Mr. Perry, I know all to well about those doors that open and close! I have a life story to tell, that is so unbelievable,that when I attempted to tell a couple friends about this, they would not believe me! So, I quit with the notion to tell anyone what I sacrificed to help one person, thousands of miles from me! I asked God every day to guide and help me with the decisions I had to make! I am one to tell anyone, God is there for us!! We just need to listen and let situations fall into place! God guided me on this crazy journey in life,that I choose to help with! Things are thrown at us in life,that we have no idea why it is given to us to deal with! I know that I can handle anything that God puts forth to me! I have had a lot of doors close but there is always a new one that opens! Mr. Perry, the words you speak are so true! I would like some day for you to hear the story I have to tell! I thank you for being the kind soul that you are ! I wish the people of this world would wake up and realize, life is to short and we all need to help one another!
Pray ,pray pray, our nation.

I'd like to Thank You Mr. Perry for reminding me of how good GOD is. I lost my husband 4yrs. ago and I have told myself over and over that GOD knows what is best, but I can't see the plan and reason for this loss in my life. He was 48 yrs. old and I know why he died, I just have had so much sadness with the loss of my mother in 2002 and then my dear sister the same yr. as my husband. I'm sorry for the loss of your dear mother, I know what it is like to have lost a mother that trainned you in the way you should go, and I try hard not to lose sight of GOD's goodness and love. I knew of the grace of GOD, but I had forgotten in my sorrow. I needed to love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul. I wasn't doing it because of this heart of sadness and You have changed that and again I Thank You. May God continue to Bless you and yours always, and may your heart heal from your loss. Sincerely, Marie
#unh! Amen! Amen-let me share a poem -WHEW in the shrivel sanity and insanity- caught me in the middle color, the route of fade on the verge of decay knowing God has sunny days possible dry- so I sacrifice my cry they like when I droop the world want to s*** on me like I can't poop the blight constitutes- fight because I can fold they don't want to remember I am bold something the dirt hold something the rain molds they see my decrease close their eyes to my increase I will not modify the fall-the rise of I know that I- can be depleted to be retreated for an instant replenish of beauty once diminished you thought I'd only rot today the sun is extra hot though I wither and I know something about being decomposed the flower next to the rock-has rose though I wither my season has come so that I may slither ~TanishaB
This is to encourage you and all who may be going through situations where they only see God closing doors. He never closes a door without opening another one to go through. You hit it right on the head when you related how you saw God behind the scenes directing you, even when doors closed to you as you sought to move forward. That's just the way it works! May God continue to open doors of ministry to you as you work for Him. Many need to h ear your messages.
My wife and I served for some 44+ years as missionaries of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Mali and Burkina Faso, W. Africa. Now, retired, we are busy in ministry to others through prayer and counseling. We have two children and eight grand-children, all faithful to the Lord. Hearing your video on how God has led you in your work in everything you've done, whether ups or downs, and you are crediting Him with your success, I thank Him for letting me get to know you. May the Lord bless you, your family, and all who work with you as you faithfully serve God in what you do. Rev. Bob Overstreet
Amen brother!!! Boy did I need that.... Stumbled upon you and this video and really appreciate. Praise God! Thanks so much :)
Mr. Perry I was drawn to your website just now after viewing your interview on Oprah in which you candidly spoke of the abuse you endured as a child. And how you had to let go of the bitterness. I too at age 55 have been confronted by a dear sister at Church that I had a root of bitterness and she was right. Did not want to hear it, but she was right. I thought I had forgiven everyone I could think of but mine was deep, like yours. Mine was toward Authorty, today, yesterday and back then. The Lord helped me trace it and it all stemmed from the abuse as child. There was a lot of cleansing that has gone on this last week, and I am thankful and your interview with Oprah led me to this site. I viewed your message "There is an appointed time for everything "and "Maybe your being hidden on purpose." These spoke to me and confirmedbwhat God has been saying to me for I was struggling in surrendering all to Him 100%. There have been 30 years of open doors suddenly closing, closing, closing and I was doing everything in my might and in my prayer to keep those doors of steel from completely closing on me. I heard the Lord clearly say Matthew 5:25 yet I was contriving ways of taking a detour on my way to obeying Matthew 5:25. I realize the doors have to close and there is no going back. There is one thing to hear this same message from brothers and sisters at Chuch because as you may know it does not always come across in purity and one is not always in the right spirit to recieve it. However, God works in mysterious ways and He could not have been speaking to me more clearly, but through your messages.. He had already given me the skinny in His word but made sure I did not misinterpret what He needed me to completely understand, the doors are closed. Thank you! And may God continue to bless you and fill you with His love and Holy Spirit.
I normally don't post comments, I share what I learn with others usually through social media. That being said, I know what it is to be in one of the dry places. One of the tight places where you can almost hear the doors slamming in succession. Hear the creak of windows being forced shut, that have been open for so many others for so long. Most of all I know what it is to slowly watch people give up on me. Even still, fighting depression, there was something that God placed inside of me that refuses to quit. That calls my spirit into alignment with His Word and his Will. What my spirit hears now, is the sound of new construction. I couldn't hear it while I was focusing on what wasn't working. God had to seal the used up places, to construct the entrance that is just for me. All I can say is Hallelujah. Thank you Jesus.
