MERRY MONDAY / ASK AND YOU WILL RECEIVE
Sometimes it isn't what you do, but what you don't do that makes you who you are.
I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day.
I had so much to accomplish that I didn't take time to pray.
Problems just tumbled around 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, 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.
I don't have time for bad days anymore. They just are not allowed. I might have a day when things don't go quite how I want them to, but that isn't going to spoil my day. I try to keep things in perspective and don't sweat the small stuff. Even if I do have a bump in the road, I recover quickly.
Every day may not be good, but there is a little good in every day.
Have a MERRY Monday every one!
