The Upper Hand

Reach out and grab
The upper hand
By studying the Word,
Life can be so grand.

A daily prayer time;
The Lord by your side.
Unlimited potential
As your faith is applied.

Waking up so very early
To study His precious Word.
Receiving the true reward
As curiosity is spurred.

In God’s timing,
All is made right.
He is always for you
And helps in the fight.

Be always at peace
And never uptight
By trusting in Him
For the future is bright.

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.

    To begin each day, it’s important to set aside time to study God’s Word and spend time with Him in prayer. This poem was written to spur us on toward these activities.
