Removing Obstacles

Many like to
Go around an obstacle.
Instead, remove it
So the impossible is possible.

Seek God’s help;
Pray that the tension
Is removed by God
Who brings protection.

Pray with openness
And with sincerity;
Ask for wisdom;
God to bring clarity.

Ask for understanding,
Ask for assistance,
And boldly step ahead
Using His guidance.

Follow the path
That God has set.
Tell the story of grace;
How God forgives debt.

In everything you do
Bring a smile to His face.
Do it for His glory;
Be grateful for grace.

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.
