Fulfilling a Purpose

Fulfilling a purpose
By following a plan
And stepping ahead
Throughout a lifespan.

Out on a mission
To bridge the gap
By changing lives
And following the map.

Beginning each day
With Bible reading
And praying for plans
To follow His leading.

So study His Word,
Write down thoughts,
Come up with ideas,
And connect the dots

God wants to help
Build a great day
He shines the light
To the best way.

He provides the picture
Which is painted for free.
Portrayed in our minds
And becoming reality.

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.
