The Spirit Aflame

fire-heaven-heartThe aim should always be
That no one remains the same
But that everyone is changed
And the Spirit is aflame.

Relationships change us
As we meet new folks
Who we learn from
And help us grow like oaks.

Margin changes us
As we spend time alone
To recharge or reflect
And get into the Spirit zone.

Circumstances change us
As we take on new tasks
That challenge us to the max
As we go to God and ask.

Disciplines change us
As we meet each other
To fellowship together
And set out to discover.

A personal ministry changes us
As we fulfill our purpose
By being a volunteer
Or providing a service.

So continue to change
As we turn over any fear
Over to God in prayer
Throughout this year!

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.
