We all have the ability
to think and recall
to reason and visualize;
to have the wherewithal.

So choose to create
and imagine it all.
Putting thought
Into the long haul.

It may take some time
for thinking is hard
and that is why few
hold it in high regard.

But each and every day
is a major struggle
between our thoughts
and all we need to juggle.

We have to work
at thinking to thrive
by training our minds
to be alert and alive.

Regularly producing new
discoveries and conclusions.
analyzing hypotheses,
removing delusions.

Taking in fresh amounts
of information each day,
seeing old things
in a brand new way.

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:

    This weekend, take some time to evaluate your thoughts. Do you put thought into the direction you are going? Do you believe you have been given certain gifts by God? How can you use these gifts to give Him glory?
