THE DIFFERENCE

by:
Author Unknown

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 the 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 to 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 a little time to pray.
