Set Free

The world full of trouble;
Can’t just do nothing.
Me and you right now,
Time to do something.

Listen to the Word,
Be the city on a hill,
Be the hands and feet,
Never standing still.

Thoughts of peace … of love;
Doing what God instructs.
Inspired by good examples,
Not those who self-destruct.

Overcome the past
And live better lives.
Put the destructive past
In the archives.

Be free in Christ;
Make the right choice.
The ONE with the answer;
In whom we all rejoice.

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:

    We are free in Christ. With freedom comes the responsibility to make the right choices. Let us apply our faith by letting the Spirit council our activities this day. Take inspiration from this poem.
