15 SHADES OF FAITH



Sometimes life throws ugly balls at us. Ones we may never be able to catch no matter how experienced we are at a handball game. It is in moments like this that we may desire a real life example of others who successfully caught the kind of ugly ball life threw at us.
The Bible has several example of ordinary people who caught life’s ugly balls through faith . In as much as their situations may not be exactly like ours; we can definitely draw inspiration from their successful ball catch as we stretch our hands bravely towards the balls life throw at us. 
As you go through these examples of faith, I’ll like you to look critically at your own situation and decide on new and creative ways you can put your faith to work in your situation.



· Faith is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living (Hebrews 11:1-msg)

· Like the centurion, Faith is trusting that the word of God isn’t hindered by distance nor time (Mathew 8:5-13)

Read: The path of a dream

· Like the woman with blood issue, Faith is reaching out to God in confident assurance (Luke 8:43-48)

· Like the shunamite woman, Faith is declaring God’s will when situation speaks/proves otherwise (2kings 4:8-37)

· Like the zarephath widow, Faith is obeying an instruction even if it makes no sense (1 kings 17:7-16)

· Like Gideon, Faith is accepting a mission even if you once thought less of your capabilities (Judges 6)

· Like Job, Faith is refusing to change your perception of God’s goodness in the midst of unexpected calamities (The book of Job)

· Like Peter, Faith is stepping out in the unknown simply because you heard the Lord call you in that direction (Mathew 24:29)

· Like Ruth, Faith is loyalty to God-ordained relationships even when you have no imminent reason to stick (The book of Ruth)

· Like Rehab, Faith is believing the promise of a God you’ve never seen but heard about. (Joshua 6)
· Like Paul, Faith is readiness to die for the gospel (Philippians 1:21)

· Like Jesus, Faith is knowing that the father would keep his part of the deal (Mark 14:62)

· Like Zacchaeus, Faith is harnessing your environment to enable you grasp your desire (Luke 19:4)

· Like Mary, Faith is accepting the inexplicable program of God (Luke 1:38)

· Like David, Faith is refusing to scheme your way into God’s promise for your life. Trusting that He has the ability to bring his word to pass (1 Samuel 24:9-22)

IS RESPECT REALLY RECIPROCAL?

While respect is due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others (Oxford dictionaries.com); the word reciprocal refers to something done, given, felt, or owed in return (The free dictionary.com) The popular phrase "respect is reciprocal" is said to urge people to regard the feelings, wishes or rights of others first, before expecting respect in return. Read: The art of getting along The human nature has the tendency to give back what it gets. Hence, people would averagely respect anyone who respects them. However, there is no guarantee that people would regard your feelings or wishes when they have to make decisions or act. Therefore, it is unreasonable to respect people only because you want respect in return. Having such expectation could lead to hurt when people fail to reciprocate the respect you have offered them.

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT
