Stories of Real Faith (ePub) | Christian Lifestyle

Helana Olivier

Lux Verbi

There is no dress rehearsal to prepare us for life. Sometimes it takes only one crisis to send our lives forever in a new direction. Will that one setback that crossed my path leave me embittered and bewildered? Will my faith be thrown permanently into reverse? And what about successes? Will unexpected breakthroughs change me into an arrogant, cocky being?
It is in the midst of such unexpected moments that the real heroes of life are born. They are ordinary people that refuse to submit to that one big setback. They choose to push upstream, against all resistance. These real heroes of life are that small band that reaches for God’s hand in a new way in the dark.

The stories of these people are shared first hand in this book. Their routes are gripping, inspiring and heroic. Their lives shout that unexpected bad or good things do not have the last say. Real character shows in the midst of the storm, where pain and excess are recreated into new routes of mercy by ordinary individuals. That one day that was different in their life did not knock them down. Rather, it inspired them to greater heights
