I got up early one morning and rushed 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.
