Steadfast Toward the Mission

God will give us insight
To how to play our part
Yielding for His glory
With all our heart.

Along the way,
We may face trials
But are also blessed
With many smiles.

The thing about life
Is being able
To remain faithful
In what is capable.

Power is available
To not be a conformer
But accept God’s grace
And be a transformer.

To do what we enjoy,
Fulfilling the mission
God has given
In the great commission.

To go after
What is most essential
Using our gifts
To full potential.

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:

    This poem is inspired by 2 Corinthians 5 and 6. The purpose given to Paul inspired in him the determination to blaze a path; making it easier for others to understand and receive the power of God and the great treasures available to anyone that accepts God’s grace.
