Strong Finish

Athletes seek improvement
To gain their victory
And you too can aim
For a high trajectory.

With positive values
And being determined
By gaining inspiration
From a great sermon.

Always encouraged
With devout themes
To provide a path
Beyond your dreams.

Giving a mission
With planned out timelines
Which are so important
To meeting deadlines.

The end approaches
And all effort is spent
Like getting the best time
At a sporting event.

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:

    Like athletes planning out their victory, we can plan out our daily activities. We can write out quotes, Bible verses, points made in sermons, and links to videos. These will be used to inspire, support plans, and provide a map to staying on course. It’s also a good idea to plan out a timeline because deadlines are important. They act like the time clock at a sporting event and everyone becomes more focused before time runs out.
