You're Gonna Make It, Just Hold On!

Written by Tyler Perry

tyler_perry_og_75x75Something happened to me that I had to share with you.

I was dealing with some foolishness, as we all do from time to time, and I was about to get frustrated and start to complain--but before I could get a negative word out, I caught it. It's always better to bless than to curse. So I decided to think about all of the blessings in my life. I went for a ride over to 47 Twenty Fifth Street, Apartment 8 here in Atlanta. This was my last apartment; right after being homeless.  I lived in it just 10 short years ago.

When I got there I saw that they were going to be tearing it down soon. I asked the new developer if I could get in and take some pictures (I have to show you these pictures). I wasn't prepared for what happened when I went in. I opened the door and a flood of memories came back to me. The apartment is one room, a bathroom and a wall of cabinets that was the kitchen. I so remember sitting in this place and being so hungry and so unhappy and wondering what my life was worth.  Asking questions like, "Should I go on living?" Mad at the world and still behind in the rent. To think that it was only 10 years ago blew my mind. Needless to say, I couldn't hold it any longer. I sat on the edge of the tub and the tears would not stop.

I remember back then reaching out and nobody would help me.  No friend, no family--nobody.  I called and asked one friend of mine for $20 so that I could have food for the week. He told me that he was coming to bring it, but it took him six days. I had all of these hopes and dreams but all I could see were those four walls.  All I could see was what  was right in front of me. Sometimes you start looking at your immediate and forget about the inevitable (if you believe).

I didn't know how I was going to get there, but something in me would keep telling me, "You're going to make it...hold on!" If you're hearing that voice then listen to it. THAT'S GOD.  Remembering all of this really shook me up. I got so sad but right away I realized where God has brought me from and then I got so happy. And the thing that touched me the most was that in all of that despair and hopelessness, I thought that I was alone, but it was clear to me that GOD WAS THERE EVEN THEN!!! I wish that you could feel what I'm feeling right now. I didn't know it at the time but now, looking back, I see that He was there all the time.

I know that some of you are tired of hearing this stuff from me, but there are others who need it like they've never needed it before. So please, bear with me (smile). Listen to me.  Every person that I thought would help me turned their back on me.  Don't get me wrong. I'm not mad or bitter. I'm grateful. I have learned since then that sometimes God will close every door around you so that you will have to look at Him and Him alone to supply all of your needs. I wish that I could bring every one of you into this apartment and show you the miracles that God can and is willing to do for anyone who believes.

God does not require us to be perfect for him to bless us. He rains [blessings] on the just as well as the unjust. But He does require faith for everything from salvation to miracles. I know that these are trying times, but LOOK to GOD--Oh my, LOOK to GOD!! And HOLD ON!!! HOLD ON!! KEEP MOVING...just keep moving.

    часы ulysse nardin цена - швейцарский часовой статус.
    Одиссей Нарден, основатель известного бренда,
    родился в 1823 годку в Ле Локле, Швейцария, в
    семье часовщика Леонарда Фредерика Нардена, который и стал его главным преподователем.
    Впоследствии он усовершенствовал обретенные познания и способности, обучаясь около
    2-ух часовщиков: Фредерика Вильяма Дюбуа, общепризнанного одним из лучших мастеров своего времени, и Луи
    Жан-Ришара де Бресселя (Frederic William Dubois и Louis JeanRichard-dit-Bressel).

    В 23 возраст Одиссей Нарден основал свою компанию, которую возглавлял в
    протяжении тридцати парение.
    В 1876 годку он передал власть своему 21-летнему отпрыску Полю Давиду.
    Свыше всякой меры однозначно момент, его произведения отличались высочайшей на тот момент точностью и имелись отмечены собственным тавром творца.

    К 1860 годку стартовал вывоз 1-ый
    уникальных часов под маркой Ulisse Nardin в основную и южную Америку.
    Производил его парижский торгашеский
    посланник Люсьен Дюбуа, кой был единым представителем
    Ulisse Nardin в течение 2-ух последующих парение.
    Наверное имелись мимолетные репетиры
    и карманные момент. Вскоре компания захватила первый кубок на лондонской всемирной выставке 1862 г.
    в категории трудных времен и карманных хронометров.
    Данная победа мгновенно сделала
    бренд знаменитым и известным.

    и все же вначале «лицом фирмы» про всего мира были оригинальные морские хронометры Ulisse Nardin, которые работали устройствами навигации торговых
    и военных судов. в этом случае требования к правильности хронометров были чрезвычайно высоки, так
    как с них зависело устройство географических координат корабля.
    Благодаря высокой правильности издаваемых мореходных хронометров единица Ulisse Nardin стала
    известна всему миру, так как
    их хронометры дозволяли
    отличия всего около десятой доли моменты
    в сутки.

    Поскольку до введения ядерной секунды в 1967 годку единицы времени задавались периодом
    верчения Территории кругом собственной оси, все участвующие в выставках хронометры изучали калибровку и сертификацию в астрономических обсерваториях.

    Определение кантона Невшатель
    считалась основной швейцарской обсерваторией, где велась подобная сертификация.

    В 1975 годку, именно том, как скоро кварцевые часы выражая благодарность своей правильности и невысокой стоимости потеснили
    машинные хронометры, обсерватория опубликовала выпуск, посвященный выставкам хронометров с 1846 возраст сообразно
    1975 и, как руководствовалось изо
    издания, из 4504 сертификатов, сделанных за данный период, 4324 принадлежали Ulisse Nardin.

    Возникновение возьми рынке наиболее четких и дешевых кварцевых аналогов навило ощутимый шарабан по часовому кругу в целом и фирмы Ulisse Nardin в частности.
    В результате в 1983 году ее приобрел магнат Рольф Ф.Шнайдер (Rolf
    Schnyder) (1935-2011). Именно страсть Шнайдера к часам и его деловитая хватка вновь приподняли бренд Ulisse Nardin на караульный Олимп.

    Рольф Шнайдер привлек ученого-изобретателя и знаменитого часовщика Людвига Охслина (Oechslin), в совместной работе с коим они повысили проектирование и сделали эти сложные хронометры, каких еще никак не видывал
    свет. Прототипом стал Astrolabium Galileo Galilei, изображённый в 1985 годку будто 1-ая модель
    серии Trilogy of Time (трилогия медли).
    Помимо Astrolabium в серию вошли модели Planetarium Copernicus (1988) и Tellurium Johannes Kepler (1992). В 1989 годку модель
    Astrolabium интегрирована в книгу рекордов Гиннеса будто наиболее
    трудные наручные часы в мире с 21 встроенной
    предназначением. В количество функций данной модификации входят
    районное время, солнечное время, устройство положения небесного
    светила, луны и звезд на небе в ежечасно с воззрению
    Территории, а также восходы, заходы и затмения
    солнца и луны, месяцы и деньки недельки.

    Этак стартовала эпоха сложных, неземной красы шедевров часового профессионализма.

    В просторных сферах Ulisse Nardin признан пионером функционального дизайна в часовом
    процессе – книга, от чего многие изготовители часов отклоняются в погоне
    из-за наибольшей красой
    продукта. Возможно, именно
    это повлекло за собой такого, что аукционы с участием Ulisse Nardin постоянно призывают живейший энтузиазм.

    Престижные аукционные здания, такие как Сотби, Кристи и Бонем
    любят эксцентричность этого швейцарского часового
    бренда, потому что его модели быстро становятся победителями хоть какого аукциона.

    Стоит отметить, будто, против обилие часовых брендов, почти все они поделены между несколькими крупными группами
    компаний. И из представленных
    возьми нашем рынке маркий
    Ulisse Nardin является одним из малых независимых \"игроков\".
