Forms

Some sins are blatant and obvious,
Some more discrete and refined,
But no matter what form or fashion it takes,
Sin still makes us captives and blind.

MT   2018

NKJV John 8:34  Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.”

I Am Here / Was and Will Be

I am here, Lord
Help me hear, Lord

Please come near, Lord
Wipe my tear, Lord

Make me pure, Lord
Conscience clear, Lord

You’re the cure, Lord
No more fear, Lord.


Was and Will Be

I’m not who I was, nor who I will be,
I am someone and somewhere between,
The man that I see in the mirror looking back,
And the new man inside that’s unseen.

Mark Tinjum-   2018

1 Corinthians 15:49 NKJV
[49] And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

 

Even Though

They scorned Him, mocked Him, called Him names,
And did not believe His works or claims,
As He raised the dead and gave sight to the blind,
And was merciful, gracious, good and kind,
Though they deemed Him deserving of a cruel death,
He forgave their hated with His dying breath,
For they knew not the gravity of what they had done,
By killing God’s precious and dearly loved Son,
But to all who draw near with a repentant heart,
He gives abundant mercy, and a brand-new start.

Mark Tinjum   2017

NKJV  1Pe 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

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.

The Asking

I asked the Lord for an answer,
He replied, “The time is not now.”
I wanted to state and debate my case,
But instead chose to worship and bow.

I asked Him for signs and wonders,
To show His love for me,
Then broke down and wept bitterly,
When I remembered cruel Mt. Calvary.

I asked Him to change my heart and mind,
He smiled and whispered, “It’s done,”
“And I’ll do it each day for the rest of your life,”
“I am faithful to complete what’s begun.”

Mark Tinjum  2017

Philippians 1:6  NKJV
being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

Light Cross

Oh the thought that the Holy One dwells in me
Is a blessing beyond all compare,
It makes the work light that He calls me to do
And the cross that He calls me to bear.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

Stand Alone stanzas

Standing or Stumbling

Sometimes I’m afraid of failure,
That I’ll stumble and fall on my face,
Other times I’m afraid of succeeding,
That in pride I will turn from God’s grace.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016


Stayed

God has promised to keep us in perfect peace,
If we keep our eyes fixed upon Him,
And to make us more than conquerors,
Over Satan, self and sin.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016
