Life lessons are learned
From the complex
Like business, science,
And other subjects.

Gaining knowledge;
Being competent;
Learning new things;
Becoming confident.

Learning from others
And their great strengths
In order to complement
At excellent lengths.

But most important
Is to lay down claim
To the ONE who
Heals the lame.

Christ makes our burdens
Lighter than a feather
Allowing us to
Reach new heights together.

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.

    There are many worldly disciplines that enable us in life but empowerment from God enables us to reach new heights never obtained before.
