A Clean Soul - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Feeling dirty,
and stained with sin,
light drove away,
the dark within.

For God found me,
I turned to Him.
He washed me clean.
I began again.

Standing After The Fall - (a poem by tom balistreri)

I have vowed,
and I have failed.
My foolish ways,
seem to prevail.

My Lord forgives.
But I do not.
I curse myself,
for what I've wrought.

Yet again I stand.
I am not done.
With the help of God.
I'll overcome.

Seeking Reprieve - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Hear me Lord.
Grant me reprieve.
From trials and tests
that deceive.

Remove this burden.
Make pain cease.
restore to me,
Your holy peace.

Through The Slog - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Trudging wearily,
through trails and slog,
with only hope,
and faith in God.

Yet that is enough,
to see one through,
for God redeems,
and rescues you.

I Seek The Specific - ( a poem by tom balistreri)

Lord I seek the specific,
to understand Your plan.
To rightly find Your will,
and do the best I can.

Though the path is unclear,
I will do as You saith,
for the trust I have in You,
is the sign of my faith.

A Great Fortune - ( a poem by tom balistreri)

The great fortune
won at a great price,
is not a pearl
or a diamond like ice.

But it is redemption
and the promise of peace,
an eternity of happiness,
an wonder that shall not cease.

Finding The Missing

One walks through life,
accumulating things,
yet still it feels like drifting.

There is an empty space
deep inside.
Something is missing.

Seek for it
and you shall find.
God's love is not hidden.

He comforts all
and completes a life
with the Spirit He has given.

I Look For A City - (a poem by tom balistreri)

In this cruel world,
without pity,
I look forward,
to a city.

Built in love,
by God’s hands,
heavens reward,
for righteous man.

We Stood On The Edge

Sin took man,
to the edge,
but he was saved by God,
who gave a pledge,

to remove the price,
greater than wealth,
by sacrificing,
the Lord himself.

A Great Ovation - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Let out a shout,
a great ovation,
for Christ is Lord
over all nations.

He will rule.
His ways are just.
With truth and love
in God we trust.

Open And Forward

An open heart.
An open mind.
An open plan.
Made for God's time.

No looking back,
at what is behind.
Only faith and peace,
In what I'll find.

Love Not Fleeting

The days of life,
are fleeting.
They unfold
and fade fast.

But the love of God
is forever.
It will never fail
but last.
