Faith For All Seasons by Lucas Jeff
Faith is a lifetime journey through different seasons not a one-time commitment. Typically we experience summery days of joy and success together with autumnal or wintery experiences of fear disappointment and grief. In this candid look at Elijah a man who not only had great faith but also had to trust God through times of loneliness misunderstanding stunning accomplishment and heart-stopping fear we can glean help for our own life journeys. Scripture makes it clear - Elijah was a man of God but he was no angel but a human just like us. The man who ended up holed up in a cave of depression also was granted a leading part in the transfiguration of Jesus. He glimpsed both despair and glory. In tracing his travels there's much for us to learn.
