Learning about my God-given Purpose from a Former Roommate. There was a time in my life when I didn’t believe in God and therefore did not live a holy life. I was drunk all the time, living off unemployment and depressed constantly. It got so bad that I decided to take my own life. As I sat alone in my living room and held a gun to my head, my roommate – a new believer who was supposed to be at work – pulled into the driveway. I believe God had my roommate unexpectedly come home that day to save my life and my soul. Several weeks later I went to church and heard a sermon that brought me to my knees. I started building a real relationship with Christ and my life has never been the same.
