Divine Sign

If hopes are dashed
By issues of many kinds,
Look for a sign
From the One Divine.

His plans do not always fit
What many have outlined
But His ways are superior
To the ways of mankind.

So trust His guidance;
Believe He’s near.
Think of better days
So negatives disappear.

Days in which all are blessed
With great opportunity
And inspiring messages
Create feelings of unity.

Storing up great memories
That will last forever
To help with worry,
Anger or whatever.

Let us reminisce
About a good time
Or a favorite song
From our prime.

Filling our thoughts
With peace and enjoyment.
Thinking of times
Of no disappointment.

Passing along advice
To future generations.
Sharing amazing pictures
And good vibrations.

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:

    Studying in Genesis 48, Jacob was ill but rallied his strength when Joseph and his sons came to visit. Grandchildren are a blessing and many parents have pictures of the grandkids who give hope for generations of the future.

    As we experience our world today, there may be pictures that provide inspiration and hope for you. Here is a photo along with a poem that I hope will bless you today.
