Step Ahead with a Plan

When you look back on life,
Be able to say
I gave it my all
I followed the best way.

To step ahead,
There needs to be a plan
With a passion
To be all I can.

Create a list of dreams
To use as the blueprint
In building plans
Ahead of the sprint.

Match values to the plan,
Take inventory,
And evaluate
For God’s glory.

Map it out in the mind
To make history
Like an athlete
Plans for victory.

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.
