His Majesty

In a spider web I see Your hand,
As it bends in the wind without breaking,
In the countless number of seashore sand,
In Your air that I’m freely partaking.

I see Your majestic and beautiful mind,
In valleys and high mountain peaks,
In creating all creatures after their kind,
In the vastness of stars Your voice speaks.

I find You in eating my daily bread,
Each day teaching dependence anew,
And live by every Word You’ve said,
You’re my God who is faithful and true.

MT  2017

Psalm 145:5 NKJV
[5] I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works.

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.

1 Corinthians 3:9  NKJV
For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.

Long Before

Jesus knew from eternity,

Long before time on earth began,

That to ransom His dearly loved children,

He would have to become fully Man,

Long before sin came to plague mankind,

Before Satan tempted Adam and Eve,

Jesus knew He would have to descend from His throne,

And suffer for those who believe, 

So the God-Man Jesus the Servant King,

Laid His full weight of glory aside,

That man would not live forever in sin,

Nor in shame and fear cower and hide.

 

Mark Tinjum- 2017

Born and Declared

Born of the seed of David,
Declared to be Son of God,
Rightful Ruler of heaven and earth,
Whom angels worship and laud.

Lion of the tribe of Judah,
Sinless Savior- God’s Passover Lamb,
Alpha- Omega, Beginning and End,
God Almighty and Great I AM.

Heart, Soul, Mind, Spirit

The heart grows colder,
When it finds no delight,
In a child’s laughter,
Or a hummingbird’s flight.

Seas of the Soul

Sometimes longing love for my Savior,
Like a tidal wave crashes within,
And my thirsting soul cries out in worship,
To the Lamb whose blood cleanses from sin.

Other times the water is peaceful and still,
And I thank Him for calming the waves,
But I need Him no matter what seas I face,
He alone parts the waters and saves.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

Astonishing

It’s not just the astonishing number of stars,
But the vastness of distance between,
That leads me to bow down and worship in awe,
Before Lord God Almighty unseen.
