English 101 or Sega Genesis?

My first semester of college, when I would arrive on campus, I had a decision to make. 

Should I go to English 101? Or should I go to my cousin’s dorm room to play video games on his Sega Genesis? 

English 101? Sega Genesis? 

English 101? Sega Genesis? 

English 101? 

Sega Genesis . . . Sega Genesis . . . Sega Genesis. 

Most days I chose Sega Genesis. 

As a result, I ended up on academic probation. 

But the next year, I went from academic probation to the National Dean’s List. As time passed, I went from failing college to being a professor in college. 

What changed? 

The summer after landing on academic probation, I had a life-changing encounter with the Lord. 

I am witness that when you have an encounter with the Lord, the Lord can change your life for the rest of your life.
