Praise for Our Days

God is concerned
For our well-being
And all His creation;
His love is so freeing.

He turns winter of life
Into a new spring;
Thawing out coldness;
New growth He brings.

The Holy Spirit
Like the wind blowing,
Stirs up the rains of spring;
The rivers are flowing.

It is good to praise God
Because when our hope
Is in His unfailing love;
We can more than cope.

There is wonder,
There is security,
And we reward God
With spiritual maturity.

Praise Him for creation;
Various parts of earth;
The moon and stars;
The miracle of birth.

Praise Him for angels;
Sea creatures and birds;
From valleys to mountains;
With His inspiring Words.

Over a high vista
As we look out.
The beauty of Creation
Makes us shout.

The blue water
Of a still ocean;
The beauty of a sunset;
Sparking emotion.

We praise Him in music,
Praise Him through art,
In everything we do
He gives us a great start.

Through His Creation
And through His Word,
There are lessons learned,
Knowledge transferred.

To help with priority;
Provide our daily bread.
To give us inspiration
As we step ahead.

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.
