    Good morning Mr. P, Its such a blessing for us as a people, as a community, and as a nation to have been gifted you by FATHER, our marvelous CREATOR. Your messages are so straight on and so humbling, I can't help but cry everytime I hear them. My friend has so many times told me the same thing, about staying focused or focusing on one gift, because I have many. What you said put it all into perspective for me. Watering one brings them all into fruition.....I am one that loves doing many things and I've been gifted to do those things but could not and would not focus on just one. My friend, and I know it was GOD speaking thru him, said, Terry what is it that you want to do, I began to answer and it was so many things coming at him, he said wait, listen to what I said, what is it that you really love to do and you want to do it really well, then I gave it to him... I love plants, flowers, grass, decorating yards, making yards look beautiful, but in a decorative way. So I just want to say listening to this has given me the push to do what I know I must do to bring my success to the forefront of my life.... Thank you so very much for sharing what GOD has put in you....

    What a word! Thank you, Tyler Perry. You said, "If you are watering too many seeds, you won't have enough water for that one". I've wanted to be an actor for as long as I can remember, and I'm sure you know how up and down this industry can be. I used to ask God, "If you've blessed me with this gift, and have watched me have such a passion and love for it, how come it's not going anywhere?" I learned of course, not to question God, and to trust him by having faith that he is control. There were seasons in my life where I thought about giving up due to not booking any work. I would go out on countless auditions, to callbacks, and make it on check-avail just to be released. Discouraged, I questioned my dream- trying to decide whether or not it was time to just let it go; but each night I would wake up with such a hunger in me for my dream to become my reality. I could not go throughout my day without feeling the burning desire in me to be a professional working actor. God's timing is everything and one thing I have to learn each day, is patience. Thank you for the encouragement, and for the inspiration. I've come too far to stop now, I have faith that God will open up doors of opportunity that I couldn't have ever dreamed about. Favor is coming my way! We have to speak those things into existence!

    Ok. I got it. I wont stop. My dream is believing that God will give me the outlet to my writing. The seed also had to die before it lives again. As long as the death is not eternal.

    You are right Mr. Perry. I have a dream of becoming a writer. I have already planted my seed. I am working on my first book. I am believing that God is already publishing it. It is already done. I applaud you for delivering this messages. Everyone needs to hear that you can't give up on your dreams no matter what. Keep pushing, keep believing that God is bringing it to pass. Thank you for that.

    Hi Mr. Perry, Thank You for the encouragement I received from your message. I am a 64 year old black female who has always wanted to write children's books. In 2014 after lots of prayers, I sit down at my dinning room table and completed four children books and one adult poetry book. I had boxes and boxes of paper and notes that I had written over the years, but I had been afraid to put it all together. I know that if it had not been for divine intervention, I could not have completed this project. I have been asked to read at different schools and had my picture in the paper. I am in the process of writing three more books. Thank God! If I can do this at my age anyone can. You are never to old to accomplish you dreams. Again Thank You.

      You are truly an inspiration, breath of fresh air and role model and mentor to so many! This is just a small portion of of words . My grandson of whom my husband and myself are raising is doing really well in school. He is 10 and in 5th grade at Hampton Elementary. I can not tell you how heartbroken I am at the educational practices of today, especially concerning our black males. In a school of 200+ students according to state report cards only 41 percent of the students read at level and the overall grade is a D! Tomaiah is academically gifted and has held A honor roll in all subjects. I see many areas in the educational system for that potential for black males and females to fall through that per verbal crack. There is so much I could say and I am just briefing. To this point, Tomaiah has chose you, Mr. Perry for Black History Month. He strives to represent you well! Any pointers you can give him will be greatly appreciated. My email address is sellers_belinda@ bellsouth. net. Thank you and Blessing abound!!! AMEN!!!!BOOM!!!!AMEN!!!

    'How to be successful', You know when you speak of theh Grace of God, i hear you. When you speak of something inside you tells you not to give up i genuinely understand you. One of my desires is to come to Los Angeles and also make films, telling stories about Zimbabwe about the strong young and old people. About Jesus in a simple way through film. One day! Soon.

      I know I am a small business owner,been in business since 2011 don't want to give up I love taking care elderly and disabled. I just cannot afford sprinkler system. In this business your sense changes from month to month.I realize in order continue doing this I got to ask the bible says we have not cause we don't ask. I ask my husband he walk out of my life, I went to the bank ask the loan officer my score 3 points off.I am asking God to just direct what to do which way to go. I get discouraged but have not given up.

    Thank you so much for being brave enough to SAY this and post it. It really spoke to me. No one wants to admit that life isn't 100% in our control despite how hard we work. So much of life is timing. And that timing is the result of God's grace, that includes both our failures and our success.
