allHis – because it is!

Abundant and Eternal

Abundant life in the here and now,
Eternal life here and hereafter,
All by Christ’s life, death and rising again,
To all who make Him Savior and Master.

For Jesus is the One and only One,
Who can save us from sin, death and hell,
And we’re called to witness to what He has done,
It’s His gospel of grace we must tell.

Mark Tinjum  2017

Mat 1:21  And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”

Happy

Happy

I’d be happy to be servant,
At the Master’s great wedding feast,
To wait on my blessed Redeemer,
And the saints from the greatest to least,
When earth’s four corners come together,
Saints from north, south, west and east,
God will welcome His dearly loved children home,
On that day when all evil has ceased.

Mark Tinjum  –  2017

Revelation 19:9 NKJV
[9] Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”

 

His Majesty

In a spider web I see Your hand,
As it bends in the wind without breaking,
In the countless number of seashore sand,
In Your air that I’m freely partaking.

I see Your majestic and beautiful mind,
In valleys and high mountain peaks,
In creating all creatures after their kind,
In the vastness of stars Your voice speaks.

I find You in eating my daily bread,
Each day teaching dependence anew,
And live by every Word You’ve said,
You’re my God who is faithful and true.

MT  2017

Psalm 145:5 NKJV
[5] I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works.

I Listened

I sat beside a friend of mine,
And listened to his tale of lament,
I didn’t say many profound words,
And later asked the Lord why I was sent,
He replied in return, “You did what I asked,”
“You listened and you were a friend,”
“You were an extension of me and I am pleased,”
“By the listening ear that you lend.”

Mark Tinjum  2017

Jas 1:19  NKJV
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;

Changed

I serve the One so powerful,
He spoke everything into existence,
And changed my sinful stubborn heart,
With His gentle loving persistence.

Mark Tinjum  2015

Ezekiel 11:19 NKJV
[19] Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh,

 

 

 

 

Contemplation

A wise man takes both good and bad,
And learns from each situation,

As he talks them over with the all wise God,

Then acts from his contemplation.

 

Mark Tinjum. 2017

 

Proverbs 2:6 NKJV

[6] For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

Yet

So often I seek my own will and way,
Instead of God’s honor and glory,
Yet the Holy One uses even messed up me,
To play a part in His redemption love story.

Mark Tinjum   –   2017

1 Corinthians 3:9  NKJV
For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.
