You can experience a peace that neither money nor medication can give you. This is a peace that comes only from Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
God created everything that exists for His own glory, including us. "Everything He does on earth is for His glory, and He commands that we also bring glory to Him."
Slip and fall? Sure, we all do from time to time. But we don't stay down! We get up, confess our sin, hold up our heads, and move forward with Christ.
