12 Promises

Are these extravagant promises? We think not.

1.  We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.
2.  We will not regret the past, nor wish to shut the door on it.
3.  We will comprehend the word serenity.
4.  We will know peace.
5.  No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.
6.  That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.
7.  We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.
8.  Self-seeking will slip away.
9.  Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.
10.  Fear of people and economic insecurity will leave us.
11.  We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.
12. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
