So I Smiled- A Poem for Dave

Jesus walked with me up a dark mountain,
Higher and higher he led,
“Walk by faith and not by sight,”
“For my grace is sufficient,” He said,

“Fear not, My dear child, it is I,”
“Who built this mountain so tall,”
“And I created both darkness and light,”
“And will teach you to soar and not fall,”

So I smiled in the face of the dark abyss,
As the Prince of Peace filled up my heart,
And I realized His presence was the greatest gift,
That my Father could ever impart.

Mark Tinjum   –   2017

Eph 3:19  to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.




I’d be happy to be servant,
At the Master’s great wedding feast,
To wait on my blessed Redeemer,
And the saints from the greatest to least,
When earth’s four corners come together,
Saints from north, south, west and east,
God will welcome His dearly loved children home,
On that day when all evil has ceased.

Mark Tinjum  –  2017

Revelation 19:9 NKJV
[9] Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”


Now and Then

Whether lamenting in the grip of sorrow or sadness,
Or praising the Lord and rejoicing with gladness,

Like the psalms of David both now have their place,

And God can use both to show mercy and grace.


But a new day will dawn and is coming soon,

When all sadness and sorrow will cease,

And the meek shall inherit a kingdom on earth,

And delight in abundance of peace.


Mark Tinjum – 2017

Psalm 37:11  NKJV
But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
