The Decision to Follow

Put on your shoes
And walk without excuse
Getting rid of the blues
By sharing the Good News.

Understanding the call,
Willing to install
Without any regrets
Vast spiritual assets.

Meeting with people
At the steeple
Or social distancing
But always witnessing.

Sisters and brothers
Sharing with others
Through music or art
And doing our part.

To escape the prison
Making the decision 
To follow and proclaim
In Jesus name.

Poem by Mark Shields – © 12-9-2021
Inspired by
“The Decision to Follow”
Worship Him today with the song Way Maker by Leeland. Jesus is the way maker, the promise keeper, the miracle maker, and the Light in the darkness. That’s who Jesus is and He’s here among us.

  1. Love your Thursday poems. This is it: “To escape the prison Making the decision To follow and proclaim In Jesus name.”

    Get connected to and internalize the guiding principles taught by Christ to gain spiritual assets. They are like treasure for our spiritual wealth as they provide for our needs and stay securely with us forever as a resource to step ahead.
