It ain't over until God said it's over!

On Sunday, I watched a rerun of Tyler Perry’s interview with Oprah on OWN TV. Towards the end of the interview, he talked about being fatigued by failure early in his career. He mentioned how he faced homelessness, shame and failure. At the time, he had invested everything he had into his plays, yet he had not seen the fruits of his labor. He described being at his wits end.  He told God that he had enough. It was at that moment that he said he heard God’s voice clearly say, “It ain’t over until I say it’s over.” He said that as soon as he heard the voice he looked downstairs and saw scores of people lined up around the block to see his play. God had spoken. It wasn’t over for Tyler then, and it’s not over for you now!  It’s not over until God says it’s over!
