Every Starry Night

The world is difficult
But God is close by.
He is above it all
Just look to the sky.

The world is dangerous
But God is close by.
His angels come
Lifting me way up high.

My life I give
To the only one
Who makes the moon
Reflect the sun.

The angels sing
From the painted sky
Every Starry night
He’s got me in His eye.

Changed my life
Like autumn leaves.
Living with Christ
I ride the breeze.

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.

    I enjoy writing inspirational poems and this one is inspired by a sermon by Dr. Steve Wende at my church. This weekend, share a thought from one of the great sermons you attend in your community or on a podcast.
