Inspire Big Smiles

Life can throw us for a loop
But we can always recoup
If we know that everyday
We are going the right way.

Lifting up with gentleness
And setting a precedence.
Supporting with kindness
To handle any crisis.

Influencing others
All sisters and brothers
Telling the kin
To hold up their chin.

Forgiving others for the hurt
By not getting in the dirt
But letting go of the past
And staying steadfast.

The past we did face
Has been handled with grace
So go the extra mile
And offer a big smile.

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 50, Joseph never considered taking revenge on his brothers or those who placed him in prison. He didn’t hold a grudge but was kind; He was respectful and this influenced those around him. The Lord gave him great success in whatever he did. This day, let us do the same by being respectful, being kind, and blessing others with a big smile. In turn, this may inspire big smiles to be passed around the world on this beautiful Sunday.
