Guardrails

There are rules we live by 
And they are our guardrails; 
Found in His Word 
And lighting our trails. 

These rules give us 
God’s design for living; 
Blessing those who 
Constantly are seeking. 

They lead us together 
Holding each other’s hands; 
Living by the Word 
And keeping His commands. 

They are the guide for
Each decision 
As we read His Word 
And follow the vision. 

These rules make the world 
A better place; 
Stepping ahead
To win the race. 

To invest in people
By helping a friend
And gaining the treasure
That rewards without end.


Poem by Mark Shields – © 11-11-2021
Inspired by sermon of Reverend Steve Ramsdell in July of 2015
Thought - Many do not have good worldly fathers but our heavenly Father is available for all. Each local church is like a family that will help build up faith. One way to receive guidance is by obtaining information and inspiration from sermons.
