Encouraging Poems

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 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.
