Patiently Waiting

Every obstacle
will be overcome
by fervently
following the ONE.

Maintaining great faith
That each charge is won
by doing God’s will
until it is done.

Clinging to His Word
and taking action
upon each duty
until completion.

Rejoicing in progress
throughout the day
and keeping on the path
of the perfect Way.

Patiently waiting
For our noble Lord
and receiving the
ultimate reward.

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 poem was inspired after reading Joshua 14-15. Caleb waited 45 years for the land God had promised him. He had followed God wholeheartedly with courage, was patient, and had confidence in God. This reward was finally earned for himself and his family. In all we do, we can have the same patience as we look forward to God’s great reward.
