Never Forsaken

If you ever think
You have reached the end,
No one standing by you
To aid or defend,
When all forsake you
No comfort they send,
There is One who stands closer
Than a brother or friend.

The ABCs of Grace

I so often think
If I do ABC
Then God is obliged
To do XYZ
By His loving rebuke
I can now clearly see
Such thoughts are wrong
Borderline blasphemy
For Christ did it all
When He walked Calvary’s road
And gave grace as a gift
That is freely bestowed

Alone to Atone

Our Great God and Savior
Walked Mount Calvary alone
Knowing only His blood
Could fully atone
For mankind’s high treason
And the sins of all men
And to make a straight path
To the Father again.

Two Gates

The Good Shepherd lovingly calls us,
Enter the narrow gate,
The broad path leads to destruction,
Turn away- don’t suffer that fate,
My way can often be difficult,
But I lead with a purpose and plan,
I desire to prosper not hurt you,
Just trust Me and reach out your hand,
In My presence there is fullness of joy,
There are pleasures forevermore,
Behold I stand at the gate of your heart,
My child will you open the door?

The One who owns the whole universe,
Was born in a borrowed stall,
To set us free from the enemy,
And the curse of mankind’s fall.

At the Lord’s earthly dedication,
To His heavenly Abba above,
All His family had to offer God,
Was a lowly turtle dove.

When His family was called to flee,
From the wrath of a murderous king,
God provided for His beloved Son,
By the treasures three wise men would bring.

God’s precious and priceless gift to men,
Life’s Author, the universe Builder,
Was sold as a common criminal,
For a paltry few pieces of silver.

At His death a rich man’s kindness,
Provided place for His body to rest,
But of all the kings who have walked this earth,
He was richer and exceedingly blessed.

Going Against

It often takes a bigger man
To say no rather than yes,
To go against the grain of the world
To seek God and His righteousness,
For the better part of wisdom
Is being humble, kind and meek,
Knowing when to hold your peace
And when to stand up and speak.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

To And Through

By the precious blood of the spotless Lamb
We’ve been place on a glorious path,
One that’s good, true and righteous
We’ve been saved from Almighty God’s wrath,
For Christ dealt with our great problem
On the cross He took our guilt and sin,
And offers abundant grace and peace
To all who come to and through Him.
