The other night I heard Tyler Perry say, prior to becoming the famous person we know; he prayed a simple prayer to God. In his prayer he asked God to let his will be done. Now that sounds really simple however, he was actually asking God to come into his life and take control.
I recall the night I prayed that simple prayer: I was down and out; I had no one in my life that I could trust or depend on. At that point in my life the Holy Spirit had begun to reveal God to me. Yes, my parents, siblings, and grandparents were all living at that time. But, what I desired they could not provide. There was only one who could give what I needed, so I got down on my knees and humbled myself – I asked God to come into my life, I wanted him to save me. Now that was about twenty years ago. Since that time, I have completed three degrees (Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral), purchased several homes, gave birth to a second child, married my soul-mate, and grew personally and professionally.
I don’t know where you are in your life or what you need. Fortunately, I can share my story; my life is a living testimony. [I believe] if you allow God to come into your life, he will lead you to places that you would have never imagined.
