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 said, "But 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!
