The following poem was inspired by a wonderful wordsmith and poet. She recently wrote a poem titled “Where’s Your Bible”. Please check out her God-honoring writings at Christian Poetry by Deborah Ann
Your Only Weapon
Sword of the Spirit, Word of God
The weapon no foe can defeat
Law of the Lord and His Command
The Light and the Lamp to my feet
Don’t you leave your weapon behind.
Don’t race to war without the Lord.
You can’t defeat the enemy blind.
Nor fight wars without your sword.
Souls are slain in mind’s battlefields –
They’re slaughtered there day to day.
Desperately drew their own swords to wield
Without Bibles in war-fields they lay.
