The Difference

I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish
that I didnít have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me
and heavier came each task.
"Why doesnít God help me?" I wondered.
He answered, "You didnít ask.í

I wanted to see joy and beauty
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak,
I wondered why God didnít show me.
He said, "But you didnít seek."

I tried to come to Godís presence;
I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
"My child, you didnít 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.

The Secret

I met God in the morning
When my day was at its best,
And His presence came like sunrise,
Like a glory in my breast.

All day long the Presence lingered,
All day long He stayed with me,
And we sailed in perfect calmness
Oíer a very troubled sea.

Other ships were blown and battered,
Other ships were sore distressed,
But the winds that seemed to drive them
Brought to us a peace and rest.

Then I thought of other mornings,
With a keen remorse of mind,
When I too had loosed the moorings,
With the Presence left behind.

So I think I know the secret,
Learned from many a troubled way;
You must seek Him in the morning
If you want Him through the day!
