"We do not serve God because of what we want Him to do. We serve God for what He has already done. Giving the gift of His son Jesus Christ who has pardoned us from sin is enough. #Thankful"

Steve Harvey Gets Emotional In TD Jakes ‘Mind, Body & Soul’ Interview [VIDEO]

Article By Andy Smith:: EEW News & Entertainment Editor

An emotional Steve Harvey, 56, sat down on the set of his NBC talk show “Steve Harvey” for a one-on-one interview with BET’s “Mind, Body & Soul” host, Dallas mega pastor, Bishop T.D. Jakes.

Discussing what it means to live life without Limits, Harvey expressed his respect and thankfulness “for God, for church, for everything He’s done for me, for everything I prayed for that came true.”

With red eyes, the visibly choked up comedian and host of “Family Feud” fought back tears as he told Jakes, “It’s a lot in my life that the only explanation I can give you is Him.”

These days, with all his career success, it is easy to forget about Harvey’s humble beginnings. In the late 80s, while struggling to get his career on track, the husband and father told PEOPLE he was homeless.

"I had nowhere to go," he said, which forced him to live out of his 1976 Ford Tempo, using a cooler in the backseat as a refrigerator, and bathing himself in hotel bathrooms, gas stations or even swimming pool showers.”

It was a rough cycle that lasted a full three years.

All that is behind him now, but knowing where he came from reminds Harvey to be humble and appreciate God for everything.

“You know man, I ain’t been that good. You understand? I ain’t the funniest cat in the world. You know, I ain’t the best businessman in the world,” he told Jakes.

This is what leads Harvey to believe that God above has favored him.
