Tragedy As Woman Kills Self, Son Due To Economic Hardships

In a shocking and tragic incident, a 31-year-old Mutare woman  killed herself and her son as she could no longer cope with the biting economic challenges.

The woman killed herself and her son by putting rat poison into their food.

Manicaland police spokesperson Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa confirmed the incident in an interview with NewsDay on Tuesday.

Inspector Kakohwa told the publication that Sheilla Mamera was found dead on Friday morning together with her 12-year-old son, Fidelis Mamera, a Grade 5 pupil.

The bodies were discovered by one of her children who reported the matter to Marymount Police Station.

"There was also a suicide note which said she had killed herself due to economic hardships, but she did not say which economic hardships.

A sachet of rat poison was found at the scene," police said.

Have You Forsaken Christianity?

“For if ye turn again unto the Lord, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the Lord your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.” 2 Chronicles 30:9 (KJV)

Christianity is the life of God operating in the human spirit. This life is called eternal life; it is the life that makes God who He is. Without God, there would be no eternal life and natural life.

 Christianity is the only medium through which a person can know the true God; here a person’s spirit is regenerated by the Holy Spirit when they believe in Jesus Christ; God takes residence in them, and they become the children of God.

 Dear beloved, if you have left the Christian faith, God is calling on you to return to Him. Make up your mind to return to Jesus Christ because He is the only one who can save your soul from eternal damnation in hell.

 The challenges that caused you to abandon the Christian faith will make way for your miracle and testimony. Jesus still loves you. Hallelujah! Be An Overcomer!

Change Is Imminent -Pastor Chiguvare

Zimbabwean opposition leader, Timothy Chiguvare has said guns and bullets will not stop the imminent wave of change in the country.

Chiguvare is the President of the People's Progressive Party and he is a pastor.

See Chiguvare's statement below:

CHANGE is imminent - Oh yes! CHANGE is coming soon to Zimbabwe.

 I can see the lightning of CHANGE and I can hear the sound of CHANGE.
2 Chronicles 7 vs.14

Oh yes! change is great ! CHANGE IS INEVITABLE
AK47 rifles and can't stop it if it so decides to happen because its in GOD’s control - ask Idi Amin, ask Compaore ; ask Mobuto Sese Seko ; President Yahya Jammeh ; Laurent Gbagbo Oluwaseun ask ask ask ask ask, research and use your brains!

 Imminent is RADICAL CHANGE in Zimbabwe.

It is only GOD who can appoint and remove Kings ; Presidents and Prime Ministers.  
Luke 20 vs. 17

Do not be afraid!

Today, take whatever is bothering you and leave it at Jesus' feet. Tell Him your need and then release the burden; whatever is holding you back… just let it go.

There is no need to worry or be filled with anxiety about the future. God is in complete control. When you ask for His help, you can rest assured He has already won the victory!

Satan comes into your life and robs, steals, and destroys. God gives and restores what Satan has taken from you.

 Do not think that  an attack from the enemy is an action by an unloving God, for there is no darkness in the Lord.

 He is full of light, and He is eager to restore all that Satan has taken away.
Sincere talk

You Were Born To Win

...If God is for us, who is against us?
Romans 8:31, NASB

The Bible says that we are more than conquerors through Christ. It doesn’t say that we will be more than conquerors when we grow stronger, get older or achieve some super-spiritual level. Scripture says we are more than conquerors right now. Rise up and see yourself as a champion in Him! You can be and will be victorious through Him.

 The problems that so often intimidate and defeat many people won't have a firm hold on you when you're walking with Christ and have the joy of the Lord! When you walk with Christ, strength and victory are yours through Him.

 Here's something to remember today: if Christ is on your side, it doesn't really matter who is against you! The opponents you face don't really matter and don't amount to much.

 Friend, take another look at your life today. You are a friend of God! No matter what you may face or who may seem against you, let this truth anchor deep within you—God is for you. Now go out in joy and make a difference for Him today, knowing who is on your side!

God, I know that You are on my side and that the other side doesn't matter. Please give me the strength to stand against the giants that intimidate others. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

You should never surrender to the devil , you should never surrender the battle to your enemies , Never loose the fight to the devil . Dont be prepare for defeat , Don't be prepare for failure , Don't be a looser in life .

 Don't be a business failure , Don't be a marriage failure , Don't be a failure in financial matters but be disciplined when handling money . You can have what you want in life , you can go where ever you want in life , You can have what you say .You must discipline your mouth if you want to have what you want in life , Discipline your mouth if you want to reach where you want in life , Associate with the right people if you want to be successful in life , You must move with people of the same mindset with you if you want to reach your goals .You must mingle with  good or correct people if you want to live a blessed life . You must date the right person  if you want to be happily married , Light and darkness can't coexist .So many people fail in life so many times because they get  ready to fail , they plan to fail , they prepare to fail , they budget to fail , they dream to fail , they believe in failing , they think of failing , they talk of failing . Don't be a failure because of your lips .

 Don't be defeated by your own lips , Some people were defeated by their own mouth , some were destroyed by words of their own mouth .                        
As a believer you should never talk of failure , defeat , doubt or unbelief but you should talk faith , you should have faith ( strong faith ) .You must start believing in Christ , Believing in good things , believing in beautiful life , Dream Big  , You must think Big  , think of beautiful things  , think of buying a good house / good car / good clothes / good food  , think of passing your examinations , Think of restoration of your health not to think about your death , Think of your promotion at work , Think of your wedding ,  don't underrate yourself . There is seed of greatness in you from God .

 You always get and have in your life what you believe for and say .You must start talking right , talking sense , talking good , talking wise , talking holy , talk like a child of God  , talk like a follower of Jesus Christ .

You must behave well , you must remove bitterness in your heart , remove hate language from your mouth , delete dirt language from your brains ,  remove vulgar language from your lips  if you want to be successful in life - Joshua and Caleb had won a victory in believing and talking right .Learn to control your mouth if you want to stay in the presence of the Lord .If you do not believe what you  are saying , you should not say it because if you say something long enough those words eventually will register on your spirit and will control your life .Just tell God what you want , Say what you want to your creator , God is able to deliver everything you want in your life .God is able to provide you with what ever you ask Him .

With God you are able to control the world, you are able to change the world to be a better place .

You are able to move mountains , you are able to overcome all the evil giants in your life and possess wealthy and the land like what Joshua and Caleb did ( Joshua 13:30 ) . It is not the giants in your life or the storms of life  who defeat you but it is your wrong thinking , wrong believing and wrong talking which lead you to defeat .

Many of us have fallen victims of being sent on an errand by our parents only to get carried away by other things and forget the message we were sent with.

A boy was sent by his father to urgently buy him food from a restaurant. On his way going, he was in a hurry because of the urgency of the assignment.

However, on his way back, he passed where his mates were playing football. He  slowed down, began to watch the game, gradually slowing down until he finally stopped. He watched for a while and got carried away, he became interested, and indicated his interest in playing, he was invited.

He left the food in the care of some unknown people and entered the field. He forgot the assignment completely and played his heart out. He became the man of the match, dribbled opponents, created chances, scored goals and changed the face of the entire game.

When night came, the owner of the ball picked it up. It was time for everyone to go home; to go back to their parents, the game was over!

It now dawned on the boy after everyone had left that he had actually been sent to buy food by his hungry father. He went to where he kept the food, it had already been eaten by goats and dogs, "but I kept this food with some guys here a moment ago."

He picked the plates, but was no longer happy, all the excitement of the game disappeared, the people clapping for him were all gone, the opponents he was playing against were all gone, the ball itself was gone, time was gone, those selling food were gone, he couldn't buy another one!

Regrets took over him, he sluggishly walked home, with tears of sorrow and regrets whilst  hiding in the dark.

When people saw him, they asked him why he was crying and hiding in the dark with empty plates! He had left with clean plates full of excitement, but returned with same empty plates, so dirty and stained!

When they asked him "Why he couldn't go home, he said his father will beat him". He knew the implications of a wasted time. So sad, too late.

Hear this:  We have a home and a Father to return to at the end of life's journey when all is said and done.

Don't be distracted, don't rejoice when people are clapping for you while doing the wrong things, they won't be there when you are to give an account.

Avoid Distractions, we are sent here for an assignment, the Father is waiting for us, this ball we are busy playing, when night comes, the owner will pick it, the crowd will disappear, we'll be left alone to go back and give a report to our Maker. What will you tell Him?

Think about it.


Don’t Neglect Your Duty!

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19–20 (KJV)

The children of God have been commissioned to spread the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ throughout all nations. Since human beings make a nation, the command is to let every person know the Lord through preaching and teaching.

Those who will receive the gospel and believe in the name of Jesus Christ are baptized and taught to observe or practice everything Jesus Christ had commanded.

 This has become the mandate of the church, and every believer in Christ Jesus should get involved. Add to your career your core mandate, which is preaching and teaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t neglect your core duty as a child of God by giving countless excuses.

 Remember that it is only the work of saving souls for the Kingdom of God that will be rewarded when you appear before Jesus Christ (Romans 14:10–12). May God give you grace to win souls for Christ. Hallelujah!

Time is on your side

It is a mistake to think time is going. 

Time is not going. Time is here until the world ends. It is you that is going.

 You don’t waste time. Time is infinite. You waste yourself. You are finite. It is you that grow old and die. Time doesn’t. So make better use of yourself before you expire. And one of the worst things to do with time is comparing yourself to others. A cow eats grass and gets fat but if dog eats grass, it will die. Never compare yourself with others. Run your own race. What works for one person may be that which will kill you. Focus on the gifts and talents God gave you and don’t be envious of the blessings He gave others.

Both Lion and Shark are professional hunters, BUT:

A Lion cannot hunt in the Ocean and a Shark cannot hunt in the jungle

That a Lion cannot hunt in the ocean doesn't make him useless and that a Shark cannot hunt in the jungle doesn't also make him useless both have their own territory where they can do well

If a rose smells better than tomatoes, It doesn't mean the rose can make a better stew. Don't try to compare yourself to others. 

You also have your own strength, look for it and build on it. All animals that exist, were in Noah's ark. 

A snail is one of those animals. If God could wait long enough for snails to enter Noah's ark; His door of grace won't close till you reach your expected position in life. Never look down on yourself, keep looking up.

 Remember that Broken crayons still colour.

Keep on pushing, you never can tell how close you are to your goal...

Be a Student of the Word!

“I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.” Psalm 119:58 (KJV)

The Word of God is the greatest inheritance given to mankind.

 There is no one who has come into contact with the Word of God and left the same, because the Holy Scriptures are capable of transforming a person into a useful vessel for God (Romans 12:2). The psalmist became aware of this truth and used it to pray, always referring God to His Word.

Dear beloved, the only voice that God listens to is His Word. Therefore, whatever you need has a solution in the Holy Scriptures. Go into the Word of God and find scriptures that address your need; then present them to God.

Continue to refer Him to His Word by faith, and He will give you whatever you need in due time. Hallelujah! Be An Overcomer!

You Have Not Been Forgotten!

“For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.” Isaiah 54:10 (KJV)

Sometimes we go through so many trials that we think God has forgotten or forsaken us. If you are in such a situation, the Word of God has come today to encourage you to change that perception and be strong in the LORD. His Word is sure, and the opening scripture has come to buttress that very soon your trials or afflictions will be over.

Your miracle and reward are at hand; God’s kindness has given you life, and His mercy is upon you. He has promised not to deny you His covenant of peace.

Dear beloved, meditate on the opening scripture, pray with it, and keep your hope alive; very soon you will begin to enjoy your reward and forget every pain of the trials that have come your way.

 There is no one in the Holy Bible that served the Lord faithfully without going through persecution, temptation, testing, or trials; in the end, they gave glory to God for being present and rewarding their faith. Your time is at hand, and you will also give your testimony. Hallelujah! You Are An Overcomer!

Manchester City Retain Community Shield

 Manchester City  retained  the Community Shield, becoming the first English team to win four domestic trophies in a calendar year.

City were pushed all the way by Liverpool before prevailing in a penalty shoot-out.

 “The difference is one point ahead, one penalty ahead. It’s minute,” City manager Pep Guardiola told The Telegraph.

That City’s second-choice goalkeeper Claudio Bravo proved to be the hero was another twist in the plot with the 36-year-old Chilean not only producing a series of outstanding saves to deny Mohamed Salah but also turning away Georginio Wijnaldum’s penalty in the shoot-out -and all this in Bravo’s first game for 364 days – since last season’s Community Shield.

The closeness and the drama of it all was summed up in an incident deep into injury-time when Salah was presented with one last chance as he ran through only to be denied again as John Stones blocked his shot before he could test Bravo.

Veteran Football Administrator Dies

Veteran football administrator Willard Manyengavana has died.

The football family has been  plunged into mourning following the of the ZIFA Northern Region chairman.

Manyengavana collapsed while working out at a gym in the morning and had to be carried to hospital for assistance.

"It is so sad, Willard had to go this way. He was unhappy with  the way football was captured."

"The situation never changed, even when he became a member of the finance committee. Death has robbed us of a very important figure in our game. May his soul rest in eternal peace," said a ZIFA official.

Funeral arrangements will be announced in due course.
