I haven’t seen this in years. Love it!

early morning sunlight through the trees
Psalm 107:1-43
Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and He bringeth them out of their distresses (107:28).
Beginning The Day
       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
       and use all my keys at the lock.
       God gently and lovingly chided me,
       “My child, you didn’t knock.”
       So 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 reason we do not have help from heaven is that we do not ask for it. We do not take it to God. We do not make it a matter of prayer. We rush into the day, making decisions for ourselves and leaving God out of it; then we wonder why life can be so frustrating and disappointing. It is a marvelous thing that God can be moved to answer if we just ask Him.
