Fulfilling Your Destiny

In fulfilling your destiny,
put God in the center,
depend on His guidance,
and team up with a mentor.
Dream big like Daniel
and difficulties can be faced.
The old ways are dismantled;
new ways are chased.

Notice what others
do not notice,
want to know more,
and keep your focus.

Want to know God’s Word
how to apply the lessons
Make life interesting,
and make impressions.

Look at problems
as opportunities
to find solutions
and help communities.

Make life better;
more passion,
more focus,
and action.

Contribute to the world,
help many to thrive,
by putting God inside
and allowing Him to drive.

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.
