Towards the end of the video, the man shows his room much better with more furniture and appliances, including a flat-screen TV, laptop and new bedding.
The uplifting TikTok post was captioned:
"I prayed that everything changes, prayed that I also make it in life, and it all started happening. I really thanked the lord.
"Sleeping on the floor with boxes underneath one blanket at 12 degrees Celsius. I kept hoping and believing in God all the way, and God made it happen together with my hard work. I still thank you, God ."
According to Medical News Today, advocates for floor sleeping say that it can reduce back pain, improve posture, and result in a better night’s sleep. However, for this young man, it was not a choice.
The grateful man has come a long way from his humble beginnings, and with that grateful heart, he's headed toward even more incredible blessings.
