Why Tyler Perry Started Crying When He Saw A New Highway Sign Going Up
Tyler Perry shares why this sign is a sign of faith
Superstar Tyler Perry is one of the most powerful, successful men in show business.
But he knows what it is to struggle.
He really, really knows.
So, when he saw a new exit sign going up on an Atlanta highway, he started to cry.
Tears of joy.
Tears of struggle.
Tears of gratitude.
He shared his thoughts on Facebook and Twitter.
“Just know that it is possible to believe in your dream and still wonder how or when it’s going to happen.”-Tyler Perry
These are the very real words for me.
It can all be true.
Doubt, desire, and faith.
Just in case you don’t have access to Facebook, here is the full context of his comments:
Driving into work today I saw these signs on the highways being changed. My eyes filled with water knowing what God has allowed to happen in my life.
Atlanta has truly been the promised land for me. I came here with nothing, lived off Sylvan Road, ended up homeless and starving, but I was always praying and believing. I was always keeping the faith, knowing that if I worked hard, did my absolute best, kept my integrity, honored every blessing, and remained grateful through it all that everything would work out. And it has, thank God.
But to all of you looking at my life now, I want to share a scripture/prayer that helped me keep going from St. Mark 9:23-25. It’s a simple prayer by a man who had faith, a man who believed, but still had doubts. He said, “LORD I believe but help my unbelief.”
Even in my darkest times when I wanted to give up, I kept believing, and I asked God to help me to believe past any naysayer, any doubt, and any problem.
Just know that it is possible to believe in your dream and still wonder how or when it’s going to happen. Stay the course. Pray, work, believe and repeat. You’ll get there. Just believe for as much as you can, and ask God to help you believe for the rest!”–Tyler Perry
Here’s to Tyler Perry.
To his dreams.
To your doubt.
And to hanging on, knowing it’s okay not to know when and how those dreams are going to come true.
