Flourish with Purpose

In the journey of life,
Good doesn’t happen
But is a result
Of a request
And commitment
To doing our best.

A lot of times
The things we sought
Turn out not as good
As we first thought.
And things we didn’t
Think would be useful
End up being what’s
Really good and crucial.

To get all we
Need to flourish,
The things of God
Are what we should cherish.

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 written to inspire towards realizing our God given purpose. A lot of times the things we think look good end up not being so good. The things we don’t think will be good end up being what’s really good and useful. If the things of God are what we cherish, then we have all we need.
