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.
