Blinded So That I Could See by Robert M. Hinnen I thought I was doing what was rightPersecuting all who proclaimed his […]
Robert M. Hinnen has been writing poetry since he was a teenager. It wasn’t until a few of years ago that his writing became more spiritual. And, at the same time, more prolific. As he shared his poetry with his wife, Hannah, and a few good friends, they encouraged him to place the poems in book form.
Robert M. Hinnen’s first book endeavor was “Because Of Him”, published in 2017. After hearing Sammy Murimi, the director of Share International Inc., speak at his church, he decided that the proceeds from that book would be donated to Share.
In 2018, Hannah and Robert were privileged to go to Turkanaland in Kenya on a mission trip with Share. It was a life-changing experience for them both. Some of the inspiration from that trip is expressed in his second book, “His Cup Pours Out”. Including scripture verses with his poems because most of the poems he has written were inspired by reading God’s Word.
Robert M. Hinnen hopes that as you read his poems, you will meditate on the scripture verses and write down your prayers and thoughts for the week. His goal for this project has always been that God would be glorified!
And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”
(1 Corinthians 1:30–31, ESV)
The title of this book His Cup Pours Out was inspired by Luke 22:20, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” I believe that God’s love, mercy, forgiveness, joy, peace, and grace are poured out on all those who put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
My hope is that the reader will meditate on the scripture, enjoy the pictures, and praise the glory of the Author of creation and our salvation.
If the poetry gives you a glimpse of how my heart is being changed by God’s grace, then it will have accomplished more than expected.
Please write down your thoughts and prayers for each week and see how God is changing you as you reread this journal year after year.
As with my previous book endeavor, Because Of Him, the proceeds from this work will be donated to Share International Inc., who is proclaiming God’s promises in Africa and around the world!
