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


Triumphant Tragedy

I’ve bowed down before the gods of this age
More times than I care to admit,
Given in to seductive siren songs
Made my bed in hell’s deepest pit.

I’ve crashed on this world’s treacherous shore
Felt the full weight of darkness and sin,
Then in anguish cried, “Jesus please save me!”
And in mercy The Holy came in.

Now fear and despair are behind me
I’m no longer lonely and lost,
For Jesus is mine and I am His
And His praise I could never exhaust!

A Block Or Two Away

We don’t need to go across the world
Just a block or two away,
To share the love of Jesus Christ
With lost souls gone astray,
For Jesus came to seek and save
Our neighbors across the street,
And calls us to be the light of the world
To each man, woman, child we meet.

Mark Tinjum  –   2016


We all make choices
Some are good
Some are bad,
Some make us happy
Some make us sad,
Some are big ones
Some seem so small
Some we bend under
Some we stand tall,
Some are before us
Some have now past,
Some go by quickly
Some eternally last,
Some lead to riches
Some lead to fame,
Some were made for us
Some we place blame,
Some gain victory
Some cause defeat,
Some lead us forward
Some cause retreat,
But the greatest decision
You can possibly make,
Is to follow God’s Son
Who died for your sake,
His call is to all
You can freely partake,
And I pray you choose wisely
For your soul is at stake.
