Get the heart ready
Take in lessons steadily
Memorizing scripture
Becoming a victor

Spending time in prayer
Taking in a breath of fresh air
Being open to His direction
And ready to accept correction

The Word of God placed
In a soul embraced with grace
Is like seed in fertile spot
Flourishing into a banner crop

Receive the ray of hope
Believe in Jesus to cope
And He will calm the storm
Get everything back to norm

When crisis situations come about
Give the Lord a shout
Pray to receive a plan
Execute the plan again and again

We are blessed by the Trinity
Faith is our affinity
Writing about what’s best
Godly thoughts expressed

Doing out of the ordinary things
But giving credit to the King
The miracles happened yesterday
And will again as we pray

See greatness in others
Reach out to sisters and brothers
Help them get rid of the strife
And receive power of new life

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.
