11) I wish I had a definitive answer to this question, but, truthfully, this is so hard to know. It’s hard to know how you impact others. One day, we all will know on the other side of heaven. That being said, I tried to impart what I learned to my family and friends.
12) I was challenged to be more open to others, more accepting, and to meet people where they are at rather than expect them to be in the same place I’m at. I was challenged to let God handle my anger towards others and let Him be the definitive judge.

His glory covered the heavens and his praise filled the earth. 6 He stood, and shook the earth; he looked, and made the nations tremble. The ancient mountains crumbled and the age-old hills collapsed— but he marches on forever. 9 You uncovered your bow, you called for many arrows. You split the earth with rivers;
11 Sun and moon stood still in the heavens
at the glint of your flying arrows,
at the lightning of your flashing spear. 13 You came out to deliver your people, to save your anointed one. You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness, you stripped him from head to foot. 14 With his own spear you pierced his head when his warriors stormed out to scatter us, gloating as though about to devour the wretched who were in hiding. 15 You trampled the sea with your horses, churning the great waters.
b) God has always been there in the past and worked things out. He will continue to do so for me today.
