In life, there’s always a new challenge so instead of taking the credit for great accomplishments, give credit to God. Take inspiration from the song I Surrender All by Oslo Gospel Choir and surrender all so that God is in control. Then life is lived with staying power and meaning.
Overcome obstacles And meet any goal By letting God Take total control. Instead of turning To your own abilities, Turn to the ONE With possibilities. Turn to the Lord To get you out And honor Him By giving Him a shout. By praising with song And surrendering all To overcome Any bad fall. The grace given Provides a clean slate With peace forever And a power so great. Poem by Mark Shields – © 08-19-2021 Inspired by “Refreshment for the Body and Soul” Photo – This is a photo of the Royal Shakespeare Theater dedicated to the English playwright and poet William Shakespeare. The photo was taken when I went on a travel/study trip to England with a college group in July of 1983. The life of Shakespeare is a lesson in determination as he went through some difficult times but went from shame to fame becoming England’s national poet known as Bard of Avon.
