Ask, Seek, Knock

Matthew-7-7As we prepare for our VBS this year,
I am reminded of this poem

 

No Time To Pray

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.

Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking

Matthew 7:

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

I love reading your comments. Tell me what you think.
