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) 

FIND YOUR FAITH; CATCH YOUR BALL AND TESTIFY!!!!

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The potency of trust

Read Part 4 here On this third day of praise, I felt like drinking Chinese tea. My praise jam was on already and I was reading my bible and making my confessions in preparation for my dance. I couldn’t shake off the urge to drink the tea. I made it and started sipping.  I started cramping badly. I was wondering why is this happening, I’ve had my period already. I don’t have endometriosis anymore. I will tell you how God delivered me from that one shortly.I continued my dance in pain. Before I knew it, I felt pressured below. I washed my hands and sent it there. Men and brethren, Look who came out . Both are the same fibroid. Picture 1: After I washed it. Picture 2: When it just fell out. I  felt different  emotions at once. One of which was fear. Ah God! What is this again? Are there more? What next? How long would this monster keep coming back? I summoned courage and resumed my praise. I gave my best dance that third day.  Shortly afterwards, my husband called. I didn’t know if I shou
