Here’s What Prolific Filmmaker, Tyler Perry Hopes You Take From His Life’s Story After Highway Sign Was Renamed After Him

A-list movie maker, Tyler Perry got quite emotional driving through the highway and seeing a highway sign leading to his studio. The 49-year-old filmmaker knows firsthand what it means to come from nothing and rise to something, so if he gets emotional, we very well can understand.

Perry had only recently shared through his Instagram, how grueling the first 28 years of his life were. But as he passed through the highway and realised he had fulfilled many of his dreams through diligence, faith in God and himself, he had the need to share a motivational post with his followers.

According to the Madea star, he came to Atlanta with nothing, ended up homeless and starving. Tyler, however, stated that he kept praying and believing that if he worked hard and did his best, everything would work out.

The sign obviously meant a lot to Perry as he penned down an emotional post on social media, using the opportunity to motivate his fans.

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!”
