Mitch’s Reflections: The Secret

The following poem was given to me at a Bible study group meeting, and it blessed me. Perhaps it will bless you, too. 🙂

The Secret
I met God in the morning
When the day was at its best,
And His presence came like sunrise
Like glory within my breast.

All day long the presence lingered,
All day long he stayed with me;
And we sailed in perfect calmness
O’er a very troubled sea.

Other ships were blown and battered,
Other ships were sore distressed;
But the winds that seemed to drive them
Brought to us a peace and rest.

Then I thought of other mornings,
With a keen remorse of mind,
When I too had loosed the moorings,
With His presence left behind,

So I think I know the secret
Learned from many a troubled way,
You must seek God in the morning
If you want Him through the day.
