"One thing I hope the Church can learn from, not from me, from the Scripture and from the history of the Church — do pray, by all means do — but don't try to pray your way out of pain that you're supposed to walk through," Tilghman said. "The Scripture says the ones who suffer with Him, reign with Him. We're supposed to walk with pain sometimes."

The singer, who was the victor on Season 18 of "The Voice" and is set to release a new book titled, "Every Little Win: How Celebrating Small Victories Can Lead to Big Joy," also encouraged people to step back and see the bigger picture if they find themselves in a situation in which they've been hurt by someone else.

As for Tilghman's own life, he said he believes "God and God alone" is responsible for his blessings, and he expressed his deep belief in and reliance on scripture.

"I believe the Word of God. I [also] believe so much, not all, but so much of the teaching that I've heard," he said. "My faith is mostly intact because of experiences I've had, not just what I heard or what I read, but what I live."
