Make A Weapon Of Song

A Poem By Joy J. // 2/4/2019

I just can’t
I can’t do it
I have no strength
To avail me
In my struggles,
My pain and sorrow
My hardships and trials
What can I do?
“There’s nothing you can do”
I’m tempted to believe
It seems so true
It could not get better
“Forget it all
Give in
You always be helpless
Never changing
You’ll never amount
To anything”

But the Spirit inside me says
“NO!”
The Ghost inside reassures:
“I’ve given you a weapon
That’s powerful and crushing
Over the enemy!

A song…

A song of praise
A song of grace
Mercy
Forgiveness
Love
A song of victory!
For who dwells inside you?
What shall save you?
Human strength?
Your talents?
Your treasures?
No.

Who shall save you?
The LORD of heaven
And of the earth
Of the universe!”

Sing it out!
Sing out the truth!
Even if you don’t
Feel good
Sing out what you know
Is true
Speak the truth
To your heart and soul
Truth
Crushing the lies
Faith
Crushing the fear

Make a weapon of song
Make praise your defense
Rejecting
The lies
Embracing
The truth.

“Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name.” ~ Hebrews 13:15

Introverts unite!
Separately!
From the comfort of your own homes!

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

C.H. Spurgeon - "God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God. "
