Quiet Time

We have started a new year my friends! Let us be strengthened by God today and every day this year. Here is poem I wrote with this thought in mind. Have a great weekend!

Step Ahead

I arise today through a mighty strength
The strength of the trinity
A strength that guides me
A strength that encourages me

Lord, You are above me
You are within me
You are before me
You are below me

I go in peace
I see an increase
Going the positive way
Filling the mind with calm today

Remembering peaceful experiences
Memorizing scripture with seriousness
Having a daily time of prayer
Listening for instructions with care

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.
