This poem emphasizes the importance of reading from the Bible each day to gain resources for life. These resources 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.
Facing the enemy Who provides only strife And sets me back With hardships in life. I never give up Or become complacent But just inspired And always patient. I keep on praying And keep being spurred As I keep on reading God’s sacred Word. It keeps me going With food for the soul To meet my needs And make me whole. This day I take in My daily bread A resource forever To help step ahead. Poem by Mark Shields – © 12-2-2021 Inspired by “Patience During Difficulty” Thoughts – After being baptized, Jesus was subjected to the harsh environment of the wilderness and tempted by Satan for forty days. Knowing that Jesus underwent this prolonged experience in utter loneliness inspires us to be patient in difficulty.
