Tapestry

Time may heal
But the scars remain
And the Master Artist
Mixes joy and pain
Into life’s rich tapestry
And while I can’t explain
He makes both work for good
And our eternal gain.

MT   2018

NKJV  Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

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.

 

You and Yours

It’s You and Yours
Who redeems and restores,
It’s You and Yours
My heart truly adores,
It’s You and Yours
My soul seeks and explores,
It’s You and Yours
From which ceaseless grace pours.

Mark Tinjum – 2018

Romans 11:36 NKJV
[36] For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

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,

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.

 

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
