The Path Through Time - (By Thomas Balistreri)

Every day it draws nearer,
with every tick of the clock.
The end of my journey,
in this land that I walk.
With faith and perseverance,
the trials of life I roam.
Until my day is ended,
and God welcomes me home.

Clean Again - (By Thomas Balistreri)

The Lord took my soul,
stained with sin,
and made it clean,
and new again.

Removed the doubt,
that gave me strife,
and replaced it with 
faith and life.

In Heaven And Earth - (By Thomas Balistreri)

All things were created,
in heaven and on Earth,
by Almighty God,
who gave them worth.

He will tend His work,
and restore the fallen,
and forgive the sins,
of those who hear His calling.

Daring Act - (By Thomas Balistreri)

It is an act
of great daring.
the world’s caring.

Not afraid,
to appear odd.
But willing to,
live for God.

Be Not Chaotic - (By Thomas Balistreri)

Let your heart be not chaotic,
with anguish that will not cease.
But rest in Jesus Christ,
and dwell in peace.

It passes all understanding,
yet dwells in the humble and the awed.
It's rest in the Holy Spirit,
and the comfort of God.

that rains down from above,
to His children that He loves.

In My Privacy - (By Thomas Balistreri)

In the privacy of my room,
I open up in prayer.

He answers me in love,
and directs me as I ought.
