Food for the Soul

Taking in food
That is good for the soul,
Makes us whole,
Keeps God in control.

Taking in goodness,
Striving for excellence
With a cheerfulness.

That overflows
In our actions
To fulfill a purpose
Without distractions.

Since Adam and Eve,
A lethal disease
Brought on by sin
And life is no breeze.

But Jesus was born
And the disease is cured
With a dose of grace,
Eternity is ensured.

Poem by Mark Shields – © 10-15-2020
Inspired by “Overcome with Desire and Enthusiasm
Photo – The picture is my dog Marlee. She is ready each day to get up early for her food. She jumped up on the chair next to the table and it was her way to tell us she was ready to be fed. In the same way, we should be ready each day just like Marlee to come to the table and receive our food for the soul.

    One small thing can lead to something big. Reading a poem that inspires may start something big. It may initiate something in your life or in the life someone you share this with to accept Christ as Savior and bring more enthusiasm for the days ahead.
