Ripple Effect

The actions of our now
Will help to allow
A chance to make an impact
And keep us on track.

Those that realize the need
To correct any misdeeds
Proceed with activities
With great possibilities.

Bitterness and Jealousy
Can wreck a great destiny
Destroy a family
And make all unhappy.

Living each day
The disciplined way
Honors God with praise
Leading to bright future days.

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:

    The actions of today can have long-term, far-reaching implications in your living for the future. A disciplined life with attitudes or actions that honor and praise God leads to a bright future. These are some of the thoughts that inspired this poem. Have a great weekend my friends!

    So true…bitterness and jealousy. Two unhealthy demons, they take away ones joy and happiness. Never let it take control of your being. We must try.
