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, 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.
