Too Busy



Lord,
I'm too busy today,
Too busy to pray...
Got so much to do!
I'll never get through.
Can't do this alone.
Whoops! There goes the phone.
I can't concentrate,
So, Lord, can you wait?
I want to know you,
But...so much to do!

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. And He was praying there.
--Mark 1:35 ESV

NOTE: This was written not as a prayer, but as a caricature. Too often my prayers (or non-prayers) have been too much like this poem. Today, before posting this, I'm praying that the Lord will use it to correct some of us. We have before us the amazing privilege of knowing and growing in our Savior.
