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.

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;

Redemption Day

When this present world so tainted by sin,
Is gathered and swept away,
Along with this cruel world system,
Held in Satan’s venomous sway,
Then these lowly bodies will be raised to new life,
Made no longer of dust and clay,
And we’ll shine as brightly as lightning on high,
On that glorious redemption day!

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

One Day

One day wicked kings
Will no longer reign,
And terrorists no longer
Will inflict death and pain,
When the King of kings
Takes His earthly throne,
Every knee will bow
To Jesus Christ alone.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015
