Controversial international R&B artist Chris Brown took to Instagram his thoughts about God and his life. On the date of his concert in Manila on July 21, 2015, Chris Brown posted a cryptic message saying that he was tired of the devil ruining his life and hearing God speak for the first time. His post coincided with his delayed departure after being placed on the immigration lookout bulletin on the instruction of the Department of Justice.

When u tired of the fucking devil ruining your life and u hear God speak for the first time. No one knows what I deal with on a day to day. The average man wouldn't hesitate to blow his fucking brains out but that's the cowards way out… Most won't understand the genius and beauty in change and learning and the people who have devilish intentions will win in the short term. My soul will always be pure of heart. What's on the surface always looks like one big party but inside there is a little boy looking for help and guidance. People say "be a man". Yeah, that's right but it doesn't take away any pain you really go through. I just wanna stay out the way and do music. Most importantly and great father. I don't have any more patience for anything that will cause me to self destruct!!
Just almost a week after his cryptic post, he posted another message on Instagram thanking God for all He has done in Chris’s life. He mentioned going to church before leaving the States and says that it was making a better person out of him.

I really wanna take this time to thank God for everything he's done for me over the years. The lessons and my personal mistakes I've experienced. I've done a lot in this short time I've been on this earth. I'm 26 but i feel 46 and I understand a lot more as a man and a father. Before I left the states for this tour run I was able to go to church. I haven't been in almost 15 years. HillsongLA!!!!! It's making me a better person and I appreciate all the fans across the world who love me for me. I'm not perfect by any means and no one has to be. From Gangs to fights to beefs to drugs and anything else frowned upon I've been able to learn my own way and love myself and continue to spread positivity and SMILE. I feel comfortable in my own skin because man cannot judge man. I want to continue my path to be a legend. I want to always put a smile on the faces of people who think about giving up. Life isn't about self all the time. Life is about "Love". I was able to be inspired by one the the greatest two human beings who ever lived. "Michael Jackson" and "2pac"! Understand that religion and the color of skin doesn't make u any different from the rest of us. Your walk of life is yours and yours alone. Help one another and build life! Just want to show my appreciation! Love yall!
