Bad association;
Creates frustration;
Negative surroundings;
Many temptations;
A barrier to success;
Creating much stress;
Very depressing;
And no blessings.

Be the one that overcomes;
Never succumb;
Stay in the fight;
So the future is bright;
Read, watch, and listen;
To become a better Christian;
Jesus gives the opportunity
To be in the unity.

God’s Word makes a way;
It will be okay;
There will be change;
Things will rearrange;
God will be near;
To provide good cheer;
To keep in stride;
Get to the other side.

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.
