#8 – We face our weaknesses without fear, knowing that God can help us change and He doesn’t get upset by our weakness.
#7 – We have more power—through Him—to overcome bad habits that torment us and others.
#6 – We are more able to rise above the chaos of daily life and feel peace in the midst of it.
#5 – We don’t fear the future, including death and the afterlife.
#4 – We don’t agonize over past mistakes, knowing that we are gladly forgiven by a loving God.
#3 – We stand as examples of peace, hope, and certainty in a world of despair and disbelief.
#2 – We see God turning our problems and ugliness from yesterday into growth and beauty today.
#1 – We never feel alone as we walk through each day, because we have learned to feel His hand, see His face, and witness His power helping us over and over and over again.
