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 on, grey 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.
