Words of Wisdom Wednesday – The Difference (poem)

Photo credit

                            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.
