I Met God In The Morning

When I was a teenage boy going to bible college in the Akron Baptist Temple, my aunt Ida sent me this poem. At the time I was intimidated and lonely being away from home and in a big city with only one friend, Roy Thompson; I was soooo blessed by “The Secret” .

I right away memorized these lines and have never forgotten them and quoted them often.

Blessed day- – – –

I Met God in the Morning

I met God in the morning when the day was at its best,
And His Presence came like sunrise, Like a glory in 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 me a peace and rest.
Then I thought of other mornings, With a keen remorse of mind,
When I too had loosed the moorings, With the presence left behind.
So, I think I know the secret, Learned from many a troubled way:
You must seek Him in the morning If you want Him through the day!

By Bishop Ralph Cushman.
