No Small Portion - (a poem by tom balistreri)

The Lord gave us His Spirit,
in no small portion.
Not divided up,
or sliced.

But to all believers
it is given,
the same Spirit
as Christ.

Tricks Of The Traitor - (a poem by tom balistreri)



The evil one will tempt,
his ways are very tricky.
He promises life and health,
but leaves one dead or sickly.

He is is the father of lies,
he kills with deceit.
Turn to Christ for life and truth,
satisfied and complete.

I Seek To Abide - (a poem by tom balistreri)

I seek to abide
to God's Word.
Although,
I often fail.

But the Lord is quick,
to forgive.
And with His love
I shall prevail.

I seek - (a poem by tom balistreri)

I thirst for God,
my heavenly Father,
as in a desert,
seeking water.

If I'm to survive,
in this dry land,
I need the Lord,
to hold my hand.

Open my heart,
open my eyes,
make me aware,
let me realize.

The beauty and truth,
glory inferred,
the blessings You've given,
through Your Word.

Calm - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Among the storms,
in the trial,
my soul shall
remain calm.

For Your Word
strengthens,
and comforts me,
as a healing balm.

Beyond The Veil - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Beyond the veil,
behind the screen,
lies life and wonders,
not yet seen.

There is love,
and great rewards,
in the world to come,
from the Lord.

Completion In God - (a poem by tom balistreri)

The soul is empty,
an incomplete.
Without Your presence,
and love so sweet.

For one lacks sense,
nor can understand,
their place in life,
without God's hand.

Holding On - (a poem by tom balistreri)

Through the ashes,
and the dust,
and fallen ruins,
burned and crushed,

despite where I,
find myself thrust,
I hold God's hand,
with love and trust.

My soul's at rest,

my everything,
Mighty God,
Lord and King.

I Will Jump - (a poem by tom balistrerI)

Across the chasm,
jump I must,
I do in faith,
in Christ I trust.

I will proceed,
ignore the fear,
knowing that,
my God is near.
