Look Above

Turn your focus to things above
and believe the answers are up high.
The mind might say give up now,
but hope whispers one more try.

Christ gives hope
and shapes your outlook
with promises made 
and written in the Good Book.

Never lose heart but rejoice 
with great anticipation
for rooms are being prepared
for eternal habitation.

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.

  1. I love your words- that hope whispers one more try. That is exactly how God nudges us on in our journey. To never give up, but if we do, to get back up for another try. Blessings Mark.
