Randy BectonThe Ups and Downs of Faith, by Randy Becton   Real Audio
Bring Christ your broken life,
so marred by sin,
He will create anew,
Make whole again

    —T.O. Chisolm

    Ruth Reagan said recently that she expected to soar through life with unswerving faith. But instead of soaring, her faith journey has more closely resembled the flight of her first homemade kite: first rising, then dipping, and crashing, so that she has to start all over again.

“...he rewards those who diligently seek after him.”
    Is this the way it is with Biblical faith? The Bible itself says, “Without faith, it is impossible to please God. The one who comes to God must believe that he is, and that he rewards those who diligently seek after him.” (Hebrews 11:6)

    Read Hebrews 11 today! There’s a common story there: God working through the lives of those of faith to shape them. Those who trust him, he continually works in their life. But yes, it is first up and then dipping and sometimes crashing and starting all over again. But NEVER without God’s help. Today, get up and walk in the strength of the Lord.
