Comfort for the Downcast

This day with God, experience beneficial character building by maintaining optimism in difficult times. God may bring comfort through the kindness of another person or inspire with a glorious sunrise, sunset or rainbow.

Step Ahead

The pictures below shows a morning back in 2015 with snow on the ground. The next photo is from the same office on the same day looking out the same window showing a sunny and clear day.


God brings comfort
For the downcast
Turning a bad day
Into a blast.

Just as the weather
In Texas changes
From extremes that seem
Almost outrageous.

In a matter of hours
So can our outlook
Be uplifted
From the Good Book.

We can go through
A bad day at work
But the Good News
Gives us a perk.

Bringing comfort
And inspiration
With optimism
For all Creation.

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.
