Led by the Spirit

Photo taken 06/04/2018 – Water Fall at Garvan Woodland Gardens near Hot Springs Arkansas

The actions of the past
Led down the wrong way
As many loved evil
And were led astray.

But life gave warning
And lessons were learned
So a new way was taken
And the old way spurned.

As the Word was read,
The Spirit did flow
And days became better
When evil was told no.

Battles were won daily
Without any limit
Fighting with the sword
Of the Holy Spirit.

By integrating faith
With a godly lifestyle,
The path was made clear,
The journey worthwhile.

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.
