Actor and singer Tyrese Gibson recently celebrated his 38th birthday on a secluded island by the sea. While there, he took the time to thank God. reports that the Fast and Furious actor posted a picture of himself looking out at a beautiful, serene body of water with the caption:

"Thank you father God for allowing me to see another birthday. This post was put up at exactly 1:11 a.m. [Friday, Dec. 30] tucked away somewhere hidden on an island from everything and everyone.”

"I just finished praying on the beach, looking up at the stars,” he continued. “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.

Gibson has also said that he depends on his faith to ground him amidst his career and fame.

"Fame is one of the biggest unspoken addictions. Over the years I've learned and discovered that people will do damn near anything to get it. Validation is a men's and women's silent killer," he said. "When you love yourself deep within. When you fall in love with Jesus and you're completely submerged in Christ, your heart and soul is fulfilled independent of what's in your bank account and where you are on the charts."
