Putting God First

When we put God first
Power is dispersed;
To carry out work with reason
And build in this season.
To have the right concerns;
Faith until He returns.
Using gifts to help each other;
Growing with one another.
The way we live is proof of our love
As we receive power from above.
Growing together is our great quest
Feeding the soul and being blessed.

About Mark Shields

Mark works in the Information Systems Department for an Insurance Company. He volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church and runs the 10:50 worship service computer. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. You’re invited to join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
