Certain and Near

Time to time sin may cause me to stumble,
But in Christ sin has lost its death grip,
For I walk hand-in-hand with the Savior,
Who steadies me lest I should slip,
And while death is still a cruel enemy,
It’s an enemy I need not fear,
For Christ has crushed the serpent’s head,
And his end is both certain and near.

Mark Tinjum   2017

Hebrews 2:14-15 NKJV

[14] Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, [15] and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

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,

Cling to the King / Open

Cling to the King

He’s a merciful God,
Heaven’s gracious King,

He rules by love,
He felt deaths’ sting,

He reigns on high,
Praise and worship bring,

As we trust and obey,
And to Jesus Christ cling.

Mark Tinjum  2017

Psa 116:5  Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful.


Christ’s death opened wide the front door,
Of my Fathers great heavenly house,
And I want to obey and honor Him,
As I live out the truth I espouse.

Mark Tinjum   2017

Joh 14:21  He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

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.


Heaven Sent

She loves to go splish -splash,
In rain filled mud puddles,
Drinking hot cocoa,
And snuggles and cuddles,
With her polka dot blanket,
She is quite content,
She’s a true gift from God,
By His love heaven sent!

Mark Tinjum   –   2017

Jas 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

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

Ceaseless Desire / The Outpouring

Ceaseless Desire

Ceaseless worship from angelic choir,
Their tongues ablaze with holy fire,
Singing Christ’s glory they never tire,
Exalting King Jesus their burning desire.

Rev 7:11  All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,

Mark Tinjum   2017

The Outpouring

The redeemed of the Lord,
Every man, woman, child,
Pouring hearts out in praise,
By His blood reconciled,
All creation joins in chorus,
Praising Jesus High King,
The curse has been broken,
Hallelujahs now ring!

Mark Tinjum   2017

Rev 19:5  Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
