Silent Delight

Each amazingly different
Each clean, pure and white
From the sky they descend
Silently day and night
Undeterred by fierce storms
They bravely take flight
One of God’s winter gifts
Full of wondrous delight.

MT 2020

Job 37:6  NKJV
For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. 

Strength

Meekness does not mean weakness,
And humility does not mean retreat,
It means we patiently stand our ground,
Even faced with apparent defeat.

For our hearts and lives should be fearless,
When channeled for the Master’s use,
Harmless as doves in the Savior’s hand;
Bold as lions when He turns us loose!

MT 2020

1Peter 3:15  NKJV
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; 

Lending a Hand

A dollar clutched tightly
Never fed the poor,
And a key withheld
Never opened a door,
So will we pass by
Our fellow man ignore,
Or lend a hand
And their dignity restore.

MT 2019

Gal 2:10  NKJV
They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do. 

Stray

I once watched in deep despair,
As my dreams were all swept away,
And I thought I would never again,
See another sunny day,

But then I met Jesus the Savior,
And He promised to lead the way,
Oh thank You Good Shepherd Jesus!
For seeking this once lonely stray.

MT 2019

Luke 15:4 NKJV

[4] “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?

Where?

Where does God hide the wind?
On a still and windless day.
And where does the darkness take refuge?
When the sunlight chases it away.

MT 2019

Job 38:19-20 NKJV

[19] “Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, [20] That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home?

Ready?

Life has its ups
Life has its downs
Sometimes it smiles
Sometimes it frowns
One thing is certain
God’s grace abounds
May we be found ready
When the trumpet sounds

MT 2018

NKJV Luke 12:40  Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Heaven Sent

She loves to go splish -splash,
In rain filled mud puddles,
Drinking hot cocoa,
And snuggles and cuddles,
With her polka dot blanket,
She is quite content,
She’s a true gift from God,
By His love heaven sent!

Mark Tinjum   –   2017

Jas 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
