The Difference


I got up early one morning
And rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish
That I didn’t take time to pray.

Problems just tumbling about me
And heavier came each task;
Why doesn’t God help me?, I wondered.
He said, But you didn’t ask.

I wanted to see the joy and beauty –
But the day toiled on grey and bleak;
I wondered why God didn’t show me,
He said But you didn’t seek.

I tried to come into Gods 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.
