The Difference






I got up early one morning


and rushed right into the day.


I had so much to accomplish


that I didn’t have time to pray.


Problems just tumbled about me,


and heavier came each task.


“Why doesn’t God help me?”


I wondered.


He answered, “You didn’t ask.”


I wanted to see joy and beauty,


But the day toiled gray and bleak;


I wondered why God didn’t show me.


He said, “But you didn’t seek.”


I tried to come into God’s presence;


I used all my keys at the lock.


God gently and lovingly chided,


“My child, you didn’t knock.”


I woke up early this morning,


And paused before entering the day;


I had so much to accomplish


That I had to take time to pray
