In the email that Tyler sent he said that you have to speak things as tho they already are. You have to speak life to a dead situation, you have to speak victory in everything that you do in order to be victorious. I say all the time that I am more than a conqueror but conquerors dont have a defeatus attitude. A conqueror knows that they going to come out on top before they even go into it. Thats what I have to do. I have to speak life in every situation. Things aint going right at home but I encourage myself and I continue to pray my way thru and as I pray a few more will start to pray. And then as you pray you praise. You see what happens when you praise is, you fight off the demons, you fight off everything that’s coming at you. When you praise, satan has no choice but to back up, so with every hallelujah that comes out of your mouth the devil is taking a step back and he has no say so in your situation. You praise not because everything is peachy cream but you worship God  because you know that when you come out of whatever it is that you in you are going to come out better than you were when you went in. You know already that no matter how hard things get you gonna come out on top because you serve a God thats high up. So I’m praising while I’m praying. Praying for God to work thru the hearts of my loved ones, praying that God strengthen and build up a few lovely ladies that find themselves in sadness over an angel taken from this earth, praying for a mother that feels like nothing she does is good enough, praying for a mother who gets tired but still presses her way thru, praying for a man that is on a plane as we speak to venture off to a better life, praying for a brother who is one day closer to his death because of a disease that has taken complete control of his entire body, praying for a friend that doesn’t even realize that a bottle of alcohol is taking over her life, praying for a daughter who feels like her own mother doesn’t love her and only wants to be embraced by the woman that gave her life, praying for a scared young man that is too afraid to grow up and be something, praying for a dude that is away from family and friends and doesn’t know how to apologize for hurting the ones he loves the most, praying for a guy who put his heart on the same line over and over again only to have it stomped on and played with by some girl who is too scared to give into love, praying for people that go out and do all that they can to better themselves and their communities not because they get a pat on the back but because no one else will take the stand, praying for a young girl stuck between what her heart says is right and what her mind says is wrong, praying for a young man who has hurt so many people because he has been hurt so much by life and its circumstances… im praying. I’m praying. Even while I am praying I’m believing that God is going to do great things. Everything that is working against me right now is going to turn around and bless me real good. Everything that they say is impossible I know will come to pass because I have that much trust in God to know that a promise is a promise and he aint a man so he cant lie. I know that when God says he’s going to do something he’s going to do it and it may not happen on my time but its going to happen at the right time. I know that I am destined for greatness and not a devil in hell can stand in the way of what God is going to do… so yeah, I’m praying and even while I’m praying I’m giving Him the praise that he is due, not just for what he has already done but for what hasn’t even come to pass yet. Praising him for what he bout to do, what he bout to bring me to, what he bout to bring me thru, and what he bout to do in me!!

A Message From Tyler Perry

Posted in Uncategorized by Tanae' A. on October 12, 2007

So, you all know that I loves me some Tyler Perry!! A while ago I decided to joing his mailing list so I can get the exclusive emails about moveis, tv shows, plays and all that good stuff. Yesterday, I got this email and it really helped me out a lot so I’m passing it on so that someone else can be encouraged.

Oh, by the way, I am deeply hurt that I will not be able to go see ‘Whats Done In The Dark.’ I was really looking forward to it but things happen right?? 

Hey there!

I woke up this morning knowing that I needed to send this email to you to let you know that WHY DID I GET MARRIED? opens this Friday. I know that I needed to tell you to please check your ticket stubs to make sure that they say WHY DID I GET MARRIED? And I needed to say, “Please go this weekend, the first weekend is very important!” I know that I needed to ask you to please not buy this movie on bootleg, but to see it in the theaters. I know that I needed to send this email to stress all of this, but I also felt so compelled this morning to talk to you about something else.

Yesterday a reporter asked me a question.  He said, “With all that is happening to you now–when you were growing up in New Orleans did you ever imagine that you would be in this position?” I told him, “Yes, I did imagine!” He was shocked. He said, “You don’t think that’s a little arrogant?” I told him this–and I want to share it with you because the way he looked at me I know that he won’t print it. I said, “I had to imagine myself in a better place.  Sometimes the Nights got so cold and the days so hard and long that if I wouldn’t have then I wouldn’t have made it.”

The Bible says that you should speak things that are not as though they were, and that you must cast down imaginations and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.  It also says that the power of life and death is in the tongue. So, you can speak life or you can speak death. I chose to speak life into my situation. I chose to use my imagination to take me higher. Not just in this life but higher in Christ.

I want to ask you some questions today. And this is mainly for the People that are going through right now. When you think about your tomorrow are good things waiting for you? When you imagine your future are you happy and blessed?  Is your family happy? Are you in a better place than you are now? If you don’t see good things in your future then nothing good will come your way. You must think good about you so that it can come to you. So, start seeing yourself in a better place. I promise you that it works. It worked for me and it can work for you.

And just a side note, when you start to dream and see yourself in a Better place, don’t share it with everybody. Long ago I stopped telling people my dreams because I would always run into dream stealers–people who are so miserable and so mad at the world that all they can do is bring you bitter words of hopelessness. Stay away from these people!  They are poison. I had a few people in my life like that. I had to get rid of them—and some of them were family members. It’s time to come out of it. And it starts in your mind. If God can bring me out of poverty and despair and place me right in the middle of the life that I’ve always dreamed of then He can do it for anyone…if you believe.

As you head to the movies this weekend my prayer is that you begin to live in the place that God has prepared for you. Use your imagination. It is a glorious tool. See yourself doing better and it shall come to pass. It has no choice.  Remember, as a man (or woman) thinketh so is he (she).  In other words what “you” think of “you” becomes who “you” are.

So, what are “you” thinking of “you” today?

Be blessed,

Tyler Perry

P.S. I’ll see you at the movies.

 have a blessed weekend!!!
