Look Forward to the Happiness

Look forward to the happiness
beyond the darkness.
Some will ridicule our belief
But their day will be brief.

They will doubt the second coming,
be very unbecoming.
Make light of sin,
mock us to our chagrin.

Look forward to the happiness;
God intervenes with kindness.
Things start to improve
when it is Him we choose.

Practice faith and be prepared.
Bad habits will be snared,
good habits repeated,
day in and day out completed.

Look forward to the happiness
beyond this craziness;
disasters, wars, and cultural decay;
God’s way will win the day.

Practice the ways of the Lord;
Continue to stay on guard;
the day of the Lord
we look toward.


About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. 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. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

    Wow, this is really beautiful. Would you mind checking out some of my poems and telling me your comments? I need an expert eye.

      I’m glad you liked the poem Charlotte. Yes, I would love to read some of your poems. I wouldn’t consider myself an expert though. Just a person that loves to write and share about God’s love for us.

  2. I love this entire poem from stem to stern; but the alliteration in line 4 of verse 5 makes my poetical geeky-ness tingle with glee! Nice work on the topic and execution as well.
