The Things of God

Many times the things
We think look good
End up not so good
And such a falsehood.
Then things we don’t
Think will be good
End up being good
When truly understood.

If the things of God
Are what is cherished
Then we have all
As the soul is nourished.
Reading daily His Word,
Our prayer request,
And planning towards
Being at our best.

Over the course of life
All the great things
Don’t magically happen
But spring from our King.
Our ongoing commitment
To build momentum
For life and beyond
As we are devoted to Him.

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.
