Creation and Renovation

We were wonderfully made
And so was the universe
What God said became reality
His power dispersed

God said let there be light
And light was in view
He gave food and water
So things of nature grew

Beaches of sand
Timeless existence
Mountains high and mighty
Sunsets in the distance

Then He made us
To watch over His creation
But there was estrangement
And need for arbitration

So Christ died on the cross
Our debt had been financed
Love had looked at us
So our future was enhanced

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.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    I’m currently reading and writing about Genesis on this blog. Recently, I wrote about creation, the problem, and the solution for a brighter future. I put this poem together with these thoughts in mind. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing!
