The Way Today

Desire to be thought of
In a positive way
But most important
Follow the Way today.

Long for the hope
And the patience needed;
That love interceded.

Be driven by an
Uplifted life
To amazing heights
Where there is no strife.

So toward the end
You can rejoice
In being a helper
And hearing Jesus’ voice.

Well done my servant
For your faith has vaulted
You beyond any fears
Into glory undaunted.

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.

    We all wish to be thought of in a positive way. But as this poem highlights, the most important desire should be hearing Jesus say at the finish line, “Well done my good and faithful servant”.
