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)

Read: 25 Indispensable lessons of 2016

· 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!!!!

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).

7 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER DO AS A GUEST MINISTER (SINGER OR PREACHER)

I consider it a huge privilege to be God’s mouthpiece on earth. I pretty much like that I have to learn from Him and the capable others he has planted in my life while passing on this knowledge to others as He wills. Being His mouthpiece means I have to travel, meet people, and go to places are like or not like (yes sometimes you don’t feel like being somewhere).  This exposes me to a whole lot of information and helps me build valuable relationships. I’ve been a guest minister to many in the last twelve (12) years of my life. Pretty much since I was a teenager. I’ll like to share with you a few things I believe young people should never do when they are out as guest ministers.
1.Don’t  Isolate yourself from responsibilities There are times when the host might place you in their home or someone else’s rather than a hotel. Most young people tend to cross their legs and wait for breakfast in bed like the anointing would lift if they picked up a pin. When you’re placed in a home rather tha…
