All In A Day

All in a day, all in one day,
almost each and every weapon he got out to play.
War was already long declared.
I put on my armour every morning; I am always prepared.
He's s never really dormant,
always ready with a disguised bribe or open torment.
A roaring lion, he used to scare me at first.
Feeding on my fears, to quench his thirst.
The big guns I know all too well how to avoid.
Even if you persecute me and dip me in molten tar, 
some things... I will just never go that far.
It's with small steps,
you get entangled in his net.
I can smell his disgusting presence.
I will never give him my acceptance.
His big guns - I know.
Nothing new left for him to throw.
It's not like a multiple-rounds, fully-automatic won't injure me.
But I always walk with backup, you see.
and I may suffer from bullet-recoil.
But, it won't be a setback or put me in great turmoil.
Because I know my authority.
And over him, I have superiority.

So today morning, he brought out a few bows and arrows.
From medieval times, this weapon almost put me in the gallows.
While his archers threw these small temptations.
And I began to doubt my own evaluations.
Eventually I resisted.
But the seeds he planted.
Still in my head,
not entirely ...dead.
All in a day; all in a day.
My each and every weakness, before me he lay.
It's never happened before; all in one day.
So many jabberwockies for me to slay.

By noon, he got his shotgun out.
This weapon I usually succumb to, with no way out.
Always on my list for every confession.
A thorn in my flesh; a state of diabolical oppression.
Difficult to not fall and succumb,
though rationalizing my way, with the Word I have overcome.
This particular dodge makes me so proud.
Somehow to this sin, ever since I myself opened the door,
I see myself lay helpless everytime on the floor.
Because I seldom ever win,
with this particular sin.
All in a day; all in a day.
My each and every weakness, before me he lay.
It's never happened before; all in one day.
So many jabberwockies at a time for me to slay.

Evening came and with it the usual big wickets.
Well, most will agree; these are the ones absolutely unbearable.
And I'm not saying they are not-so-terrible. 
It's just that, I very well know that God is fully capable,
of making the impossible - possible.
I also know His will;
so with doubt my heart, no one can fill.
Plus, He has given me His Word.
So I will not let anything make my vision blurred.
The big guns don't really scare me anymore.
Those same soul-crushing bullets, he keeps shooting at my core.
Instead of dodging in fright,
I now dance in delight.
You should see his face,
collapsing in disgrace.
One by one, some more temptations he added.
Survived because I was all geared and padded.
So important to begin your days,
with the complete armour, like Ephesians says.
All in a day; all in a day.
My each and every weakness, before me he lay.
It's never happened before; all in one day.
Every single jabberwocky he brought before me today.

All in a day; all in a day.
My each and every weakness, before me he lay.
It's never happened before; all in one day.
So many jabberwockies for me to slay.
One by one, each and every one,
he has been throwing at me like a machine gun.
I recognized his voice and said, "Go away!" 
I am so proud of myself today.
Nobody knows about  the battles I conquered today. 
But God knows, and that's what really matters anyway.
Nobody to give me a pat on my back.
But I feel so accomplished, because I stayed on His track.

    1. Of course beautifull said Wael, most certainly.
      I was religious…not very particular but yes I was born to staunch Roman Catholic parents and the church was just opposite my home while I attended Catholic school which was opposite the church 🀣. I lived in an area dominated by Catholics ….because of the church.

      But today, I am not religious as I am spiritual. Today I have a more intimate real bonding and relationship with God….and I intend to delve deeper and deeper into His grace. Yesterday I was just born Catholic. Today I feel Christian….🌈✝️…

      1. I prefer to be universal and spiritual …By the way , if you look at all religions even the ancient ones , you would see that the new are evolved versions of the old with certain upgrading and all of them are interlinked and interrelated one way or another …
        All is one and one is all as the law of one book says …
        Oneness of being with source energy or supreme intelligence or God …

        1. Of course we all have similar values and borrowed religious customs and traditions. All Abrahamic religions definitely have the same origins. I definitely agree that God loves each and every person irrespective of their caste, creed, race etc etc…and part of being spiritual would involve an attempt to be a part of the body of divine origin. To me that would mean, being a part of the body of Christ. The primary principle of most religions is love, followed by all the other virtues. If you love your neighbour, you will at least attempt to forgive, be patient, kind, definitely not rape, kill, steal, murder, abuse, dishonour, slander etc etc. Love covers everything and is the fundamental rule, don’t you think? As far as my personal beliefs are concerned, I don’t really believe in source energy or things like telekinesis although I am extremely religiously tolerant. Personally, I would not be comfortable with describing God as source energy or supreme intelligence although those are definitely facets I would attribute to God, for sure. To me, God is supreme intelligence yes. He is omnipotent. He is love. He is truth. He is life. He is justice, mercy, the Alpha, the Omega etc etc etc….wow I just realized it would be so difficult for me to define God….He is magnanimous. May the peace of God be with you WaelπŸ™πŸ˜ƒπŸŒˆ
