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.

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


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.

Beautiful Mess

So often when I look around,
I’m perplexed and must confess,
It is hard to see what You’re doing,
In the midst of this beautiful mess.

For Your thoughts and Your ways are above me,
And my thoughts human words can’t express,
When I can’t see through tears what You’re doing,
In the midst of this beautiful mess.

Then I kneel in awe at Your glorious throne,
And worship, praise and profess,
That You are good and in control,
In the midst of this beautiful mess.

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.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

And So Much More

Captain, King, Commander,
Prophet and Holy High Priest,
Ruler of both rich and poor,
From the greatest to the least,
Alpha, Omega, First and Last
The Word and the Great I AM,
Prince of Peace and Mighty God,
Judah’s Lion and God’s sinless Lamb.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016


If we tried to behold with earthly eyes
The surpassing greatness of Christ,
By His brilliance and brightness we’d be undone
So for now a veiled glimpse must suffice,
For His glory and power are beyond us
And our finite minds can’t comprehend,
So let’s just be content to draw nearer each day
To the God who has called us His friend.
