River’s End

The river continues to flow,
Though we can’t always see ’round the bend,
But those who follow Christ Jesus the Lord.
Find an ocean of love at the end.

MT   2018

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.

Lion and Lamb

Only the Lion of Judah can slay,
The savage beast within,
And only the blood of the spotless Lamb,
Can save us from drowning in sin.

MT   2018

Lord, More

I want to grow more in love with You Lord,
More than life and breath itself,
More than all earthly pleasure and treasure,
More than all kingly riches and wealth.
For in finding you King Jesus,
We find who we’re meant to be,
And abiding in Your holy Word,
Sets the heart, mind and spirit free!

MT   2018

NKJV  John 15:10  If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

Stand Alone Stanzas

Whispers and Thunder

Sometimes the Almighty whispers,
Other times His voice booms like thunder,
Knowing God condescends to speak to men,
Fills my heart with sheer joy and pure wonder.

John 10:27  NKJV  My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.


Stars and Scars

He’s as close as the softest whisper,
Yet as far as the most distant stars,
He is shrouded in a cloud of unknowing,
Yet revealed through Calvary’s cruel scars.

Eph 3:8  NKJV  To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,


Self-Made

If our self-made kingdoms
Came crashing down,
Where would our help
And our hope be found?

Mark Tinjum   2017

Mat 7:26 NKJV  “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:

Awake! Arise!

“My kingdom has come!”  The Redeemer cries,
“Awake from your slumber and open your eyes!”
“You’re no longer a prisoner, come forth, arise!”
“You’ve been freed forever, my treasure, my prize!”

Mark Tinjum  2017

Ephesians 5:14 NKJV
[14] Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”

Impossible, Amazing, Wonderful

It’s impossible to fathom,
Too amazing to comprehend,
Why the holy High King of the Universe,
Would die to call me His friend.

It’s too wonderful to imagine,
It defies all logical and reason,
That God welcomes into His family,
Ones like me who committed high treason.

Mark Tinjum   2017

NKJV  Romans 5:10
For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
