Wish List For Christmas

I wish I had answers
to all my questions;
knowing what to do
or getting suggestions.

I wish I knew without a doubt
that things would get better;
for answers to come
and my faith not in a fetter.

I wish I knew God’s
favor was on me;
to overcome tough times
to be the best I can be.

I wish I had something
to always celebrate;
looking forward
to all that is great.

I wish I had someone
to come to my rescue
Wait … I do in Jesus
the ONE I can look to.

The ONE who provides
a never ending peace
and a gift of joyfulness
that will daily increase.

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.
