The road to success is long and hard and people who keep at it eventually get blessed with positive results. Hollywood actor, Tyler Perry, obviously has a lot to be thankful for seeing how far he has risen in the industry.
The filmmaker recently felt very emotional after he spotted his name on a highway sign while on his way to work.
The sign obviously meant a lot to Perry as he penned down an emotional post on social media and also used the opportunity to motivate his fans.
According to the Madea star, he came to Atlanta with nothing but he is now reaping the fruits of his hard work and integrity.
He wrote: “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!”
