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.

 

Beautiful Power

A soft spring breeze
Playing tag in the trees
Creating an elegant ballet,
Countless stars fill the sky
Clouds and thunder roll by
Christ’s beautiful power on display.

MT   2018

NKJV  1Ch 29:11  Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty;

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

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.

Heart, Soul, Mind, Spirit

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

Hidden – Colors

Hidden

God hides for a season
The beauty of leaves
Beneath the chlorophyll,
So that He can delight
Our eyes in the fall
And give us a colorful thrill!


Colors

God paints the clouds
A bright golden hue
The earth lush and green
The sky softer blue
But His most precious color
Is the deep crimson red
That flowed from Christ’s side
His feet, hands and head.
