On Wednesday, TheBlaze Radio Network host Jay Severin took a call from Sarah, a 25-year-old college student at Mississippi State University. The call ended up delivering possibly one of the most inspirational messages ever heard on radio.
Sarah claimed that her parents committed murder when she was only 4 years old and were sentenced to life in prison. She said she was separated from her siblings and she spent time in up to four different homes with various family members.
She apparently had financial blessings growing up, but admitted her life lacked structure and discipline. Because of this, Sarah said she routinely got into trouble and felt that the world owed her something.
At the age of 18, Sarah said she was kicked out of her aunt and uncle’s house. The life event allowed her to get involved with the “scum of the earth.” Before too long, Sarah said she started using drugs, stealing and became a victim of "horrible sexual abuse."
Before she knew it, she was homeless. Sarah even spent her 21st birthday in jail.
Sitting in a jail cell, she finally had her pivot point and found God. Sarah said she still had virtually nothing when she was released from jail, but she possessed something more powerful: Hope.
“I had a hope that was more hopeful than I have ever felt in my life,” the caller said. “I was ready to take on the world.”
Today, just four years later, Sarah said she works for a multimillion dollar company in payroll and has a fiancee, two dogs and a home. She said she feels “so blessed.”
“It’s so important for people to not think that they're ever too low. You're never too low to get out of whatever situation you're in,” Sarah said. “Don't for a second feel like the world owes you anything.”
"I feel humbled, truly humbled to be speaking here," Severin replied. "I feel like I should be on the other side of the microphone, like you should be the host. ... It's one of the most inspiring things I've ever heard."
