It is more blessed to give than to receive




Blessed you are, America. For It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35

America you are  great. Plus you are a great and gracious nation. 

Leaving our birth country, Zimbabwe, some  15 years ago.

Knowing a few people, in the destination nation, The United States of America.

Just  following our instincts, but also unsure. Plus  leaving the life that we knew, and moving towards the unknown.

 Unknown, but heard about.

Unknown, but read about.

Excitement, mixed with concern, and anticipation.

Also mixed with the how, when, and  what?


Discoveries in the blessed nation

When we got to America, we had lots of  discoveries especially Cultural shock  :).

In addition, weather shock

In Zimbabwe, there is no snow

For me especially, that ‘messed me up’

We had to acquire the taste of the local food

Through it all the Lord has been good to us as a family.

America, God made you great.

He  made you great, for a reason.


Blessed to bless

Indeed  you have the blessings from the Lord, and you are a great blessing.

Because, It is more blessed to give  than to receive. The Bible also says, Give and it shall be given unto you. A good measure, shaken  together, shall give unto you. For  with the measure you use, it  will be measured to you. Luke 6:38  You  give, and give, and give again. Also  embracing foreigners. You  attend to other nations’ needs. You are NOT  self – absorbed.

May the Lord bless you with more wisdom. And more peace. May you increase in capacity to minister to others. For God has good plans for you, to give you a future and a hope. You were raised for a time as this. May your eyes be more cognizant  of who you are and what you can do. You are a giant.

Happy 4th of July! Happy  Independence!

And may The  Good Lord, continue to bless you Abundantly!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing, Mavis! We don’t often appreciate what we have here in America. I love reading about your perspective.
