Talk show host, Steve Harvey covers the June issue of People Magazine. Inside the issue Harvey talks about his time of being homeless and what God told him during that time.
Steve hasn’t always had it going on, when he first quit his job to take a chance at being a comedian, he found himself separated from his wife, on his own and living on as little as $50 a week.
“That was an ugly period, just very painful,” he says of becoming homeless in the late ’80s.
“Everybody has a moment when they turn back, when you say to yourself, ‘This is too much,’ ” Harvey says. “I had it on several occasions.”
But, even at his lowest point – hiding in a hotel restroom while attempting to wash up – Harvey powered through.
“I sat down and started crying, but a voice said, ‘If you keep going, I’m going to take you places you’ve never been,’ ” the star explains. “It was like God said, ‘Don’t quit, you’re almost there.’ “
