My Graduation story

By Tafadzwa Hove

I thought it worth sharing with you my graduation story. It might inspire somebody out there.

I graduated from University last year in November (2019)after finishing my Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in Media and Cultural Studies. I was awarded the Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in Media and Cultural Studies in the Upper Second Division.

It is never too late to chase your dreams. Better late than never. There’s no expiry date on your dreams. I should have finished my first Degree at University in 2016 but I deferred out of school after work related learning in 2015.I stayed home for 2 years due to financial problems.

It was painful seeing my first class graduate whilst I was at home. But I know that God does everything on purpose. My second class was better than the first. I met a lot of wonderful people who I shared great memories with. The idea of starting a blog came when I was with this wonderful second class.

God’s time was the best for me. At God’s time everything is beautiful!With God it’s never too late. Despite financial challenges, I managed to graduate. I never gave up and God didn’t give up on me. I also thank my parents for never giving up on me even when I wanted to give up on myself.

Although I have not gotten a job yet like many other graduates out there , I am still grateful that I managed to achieve something.

God the compassionate father

By Tafadzwa Hove

Isaiah, “For a brief moment i abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back.”

No condition is permanent. That situation you are facing as a Christian is not meant to destroy you ;it may be there to strengthen your relationship with God or to prepare you for a new level in life.

He is a merciful Father, He will not let your challenges devour you but in time He will have mercy on you.

In mercy, He has called us and healed us. In mercy, He has called us and delivered us. In mercy, He has called us and blessed us. In mercy, we are not excluded.

Battling evil powers

By Tafadzwa Hove

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

We are not fighting against our physical brothers or sisters. Fighting people when you encounter problems is a wrong battle. This scripture tells us that there are evil powers behind your sicknesses and diseases, financial struggles, unemployment, failure, hardship, stagnation only to mention a few. These evil powers are the ones controlling all aspects of your life. They are saying as long as I live, this and that will never happen to him or her. That is why you are never making it in life.

This is the time to wage war against them as cautioned by the Word of God. You have the power and authority to do so. No powers are greater than God. No demons or evil spirits are greater than God. No spiritual wickedness is bigger than God. No principalities are above God. They will all bow at the mention of the name Jesus.

Arise, wage war and never give up in Jesus name.

Fear Not

By Tafadzwa Hove

The Lord is is my light and my salvation, who shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1

Do you live in fear? What are you afraid of?

Fear is a destructive tool of Satan that has robbed millions of a victorious life in Christ Jesus. Fear causes your hope to shrivel and die. Fear prevents us from reaching our full potential.

Millions in the world have surrendered to their fears while their hearts dream of a miracle. What a pleasant picture of life God has given us- many promises of miracles and supernatural blessings but they are giants that needs conquering. Fear is one of them.

Are you acting on what He promised or else you are letting fear distract/hinder you? We all have the potential that God gave us.

As Christians, we say we are praying yet fear is still within us and prayer is about the heart and spirit. Neighbour, you say you are praying but fear is still within you. You fight on the outside but in the inside you are filled with fear, panic and anxiety. When trouble comes you say where is my faith, where is my God and you begin to look at God in a bad light.

Fear is a more deceptive enemy than Satan himself. The Holy Spirit is an enemy of fear. So choose wisely today. Between fear and faith, which one do you belong to? When you choose fear, the Holy Spirit becomes your enemy, and when you choose faith the Holy Spirit becomes your friend.

Many fears exist in our lives – fear of loss, sickness, rejection, isolation, poverty but you have a Friend, the Comforter who is the Holy Spirit and He has defeated fear for you. Always remember that the Holy Spirit can eliminate all fears of man.

Don’t let fear hold you down. Jesus Christ said I pray your faith will not fail meaning He doesn’t want fear to ruin you, He doesn’t want fear to control you.

17 year old boy receives Master’s degree

By Tafadzwa Hove

At just 17 years old, Carson Huey-You has received a Master’s Degree at Texas Christian University where he studied for both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.

A report sighted by tafadzwaprivyblog.wordpress.com on YEN.com.gh on Fox4News.com indicates that the smart boy was able to attain the feat after he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree at the young age of 14.

This was possible because the young boy was homeschooled and left high school at the age of eight after which he sat for examinations at the age of 10 and finished with flying colours.

Following that, Carson Huey-You gained admission to study Physics, a programme that requires extreme focus and intelligence at age 11 which he pursued successfully. Huey-You was doing algebra by the age of 5, according to his parents and when he was 10, he scored a near-perfect 1,770 on the popular SAT exams.

Speaking about his life and promising success, the 17-year-old genius indicates that he is actually a normal young chap like anyone else who does what teenagers do in their free time.

“Outside of just school and academia, I’m really just a normal 17-year-old kid. I like playing video games, I have a dog, I have my brother at home, so, we have fun,” Huey-You said.
