Giving it Your Best Shot

In sports, there are times;
A point in the game
When the team either
Fails or meets their aim.

In basketball, it’s
When time is running out
And the clutch player
Can score without a doubt.

All the team members
Are showing their grit
And helping the team
By being a good fit.

It’s the same in life;
You have significance
So go the extra mile
And make a difference.

Turning it up a notch
Giving your utmost
Providing a need
When needed the most.

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.

    In college basketball, both the men and women are playing for the chance to play in the final four. The poem below is about turning it up a notch when your team needs it the most. It’s the same in life as we provide something of significance to others. This weekend, give it your best shot and make a difference in the life of others!
