My life was going in the wrong direction. My girlfriend, the mother of my son, left me because of my gambling habit. I lost my job as a manager of a furniture store because I was irresponsible. I turned to alcohol and drugs, which just got me into more trouble – I spent two months in jail because of a
marijuana conviction. I had to beg my parents for help, and had to move into their basement while working odd jobs to support myself and my child.
It wasn’t always like this. My life was once full of potential. I graduated at the top of my class in high school, and finished college with a 3.85 GPA where I was a DJ for two radio shows. I found the love of my life there, and soon we had a son and moved in together.
I got a good paying job right away running a furniture warehouse. After a year, I was promoted and I felt like I could do nothing wrong. Suddenly, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Next thing I knew, I was 28 years old with a criminal record, living with my parents and paying child support. I needed something to help turn my life around, and I needed it quick.
My probation officer suggested that maybe I try religion. I was never very spiritual, but I figured this might be the time to introduce it into my life. So I downloaded a spiritual self help audio book online, and listened to it twice a day.
I needed a miracle, and the audio book provided me with one. I slowly began to emerge from the holes that I had dug myself into over the past few years. With my new faith, I was able to clear the negativity from my life and become a better person. It has motivated me to always strive for more in life, and although I still have a ways to go, my audio book has provided me with a clear spiritual path to follow!
