The Difference

Why doesn’t God help me?

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 in 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.

“Let the morning bring me word
of your unfailing love,
for I trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.”
Psalm 143:8 NIV, 1984

I love Jesus! He is my eternal hope, fullness of joy, calm in the storm and so much more. I enjoy reading, cooking, blogging and bird watching. I have two wonderful kids and a loving husband. God is good.
