Invite and Encourage

We each have a part to play;
As we invite others to join;
And encourage each day.

We help to make choices;
Share about the joy;
And give a lift with kind voices.

The Designer of heaven and earth
Cares so much for His people
That He gives opportunity for new birth.

So offer words that are sentimental;
A word that encourages;
A word that is gentle.

May the meditations of our heart;
The words of our mouth;
Be pleasing as we do our part.

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.
