The Devil Ran a World Record

I picked up my Bible
and read it like nobody’s business;
the devil ran a world record today.

For the first time,
in what seems like a lifetime,
I was able to read with focus and clarity
all of Second Timothy
without feeling sleepy like I usually do.

Typically, there’d be a war
going on as I read distractions would get
thrown my way from every direction.
This time was different;
the devil ran a world record no man can beat.

Prayer works. I stayed persistent.
The fight doesn’t end here,
with prayer and supplication, all things are possible
through Christ Jesus, my Lord, and savior.
