Actor Tyrese Gibson, who’s best known for his role in the “Fast and Furious” film franchise and racy R&B music, revealed in a social media post on his birthday that even in his darkest hours he’s never lost faith in God. In a Facebook post on Friday, the crooner expressed his gratitude for God as he celebrated another year of life.

“Thank you father God for allowing me to see another birthday. This post was put up at exactly 1:11 a.m. tucked away somewhere hidden on an island from everything and everyone. I just finished praying on the beach, looking up at the stars. I just had one of the best open and honest talks with God about where I am, what He has brought me through, and how I have never ever, ever lost faith in HIM throughout some of my darkest hours. And this is the reason I feel God continues to extend GRACE and FAVOR over my life, family, health and career. Not too many people are able to say this.
