The Spark That Starts

Each day should begin
Taking in fresh air,
Bible reading,
And a morning prayer.

A passion gained
From the inside
Where the Spirit
Of God does guide.

Studying the Bible
Through the years
Sharing with family
Along with peers.

After a while,
It becomes plain
This provides a long-term
Far reaching gain.

The power of change,
Teaching what is right,
Giving inspiration,
And future that is bright.

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.
