I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish that I did not 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 grey
and bleak, I wondered why God didn’t show me, He said,
“You didn’t seek.”
I tried to come into God’s presence;
I used all the 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.
