No Place

I’m a billion year old speck of dust,
In random selection I place my trust,
Struck by lightning I’m now animated,
From the ground which I came I’m now liberated.

Out of the void and darkness and muck,
By random chance, by sheer dumb luck,
I now have life by a freak accident,
By Mother Nature not God I’ve been sent.

I dreamed of becoming a fish or a bird,
To say God made me is truly absurd,
I became whatever I wanted to be,
I am the captain and god of my own destiny.

But some fools think there’s a creative mind,
Behind life and creation and all mankind,
Whom they praise and worship and give the glory,
But this God has no place in my creation story.

MT 2018

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Plains Maker

The Great God who spread out Montana’s big sky,
Waters the plains when they’re thirsty and dry,
He taught wild horses to gallop and prance,
And makes prairie grasses break out in dance.

MT 2018

NKJV  Isa 42:5  Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it,

The Hum

The universe hums
A sweet song of praise
Lifting it’s voice
To the Ancient of Days
The heavens above
God’s glory displays
From the myriad stars
To the suns warming rays

MT 2018

NKJV  Psa 19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

 

Waves and Whispers

The heavens cannot contain Him,
Nor temples made by man’s hand,
The waves bow in silence before Him,
The wind heeds His call and command.

Trees blossom at His whisper,
Snow falls with a wave of His hand,
He names each star in the heavenly host,
And numbers the seashore sand.

Mark Tinjum-  2018

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.

Approaching the Unapproachable

Though God dwells in unapproachable light,
We can see Him clearly by faith not by sight,
When we close earthly eyes and open our hearts,
We see Jesus, His glory, and the grace He imparts.

Jer 29:13  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

Mark Tinjum  2017

Ceaseless Desire / The Outpouring

Ceaseless Desire

Ceaseless worship from angelic choir,
Their tongues ablaze with holy fire,
Singing Christ’s glory they never tire,
Exalting King Jesus their burning desire.

Rev 7:11  All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,

Mark Tinjum   2017


The Outpouring

The redeemed of the Lord,
Every man, woman, child,
Pouring hearts out in praise,
By His blood reconciled,
All creation joins in chorus,
Praising Jesus High King,
The curse has been broken,
Hallelujahs now ring!

Mark Tinjum   2017

Rev 19:5  Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
