WORDS FOR A SATURDAY – The Difference

—-
This came from a little pocket card that I purchased years ago. I still have it…somewhere. I’ve read it many times.

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 early this morning,
And paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish
That I had to take time to pray.
