Until about twelve years ago I lived for worldly things

Until about twelve years ago I lived for worldly things. To all appearances I should have been happier than most people, but I suffered inwardly. I was troubled physically, mentally, and financially, and I kept it all to myself. Finally I became so miserable I felt I had mentally hit rock bottom. It was then I realized I had been ignoring God in my everyday life, even though I was an active member of a church.

I turned my life over to Him and enjoyed a new confidence and brighter outlook. Things in general went much better, but I was in need of spiritual understanding and didn't know where to get it. I was disappointed in the many books on religion I read because they only went so far. I wanted to learn how to tune in to the higher power through a better understanding of the Bible.
