Sonnet: Rededication To God - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Show me O God, the things I ought to do;
’Tis better that I act as per your wish;
My desires of life could anger you;
For, man by birth remains sinful/ selfish.

You only know what for you’d made me, God;
Let me perform the roles you assign me;
Success or failure needs your divine nod;
With duty done, I see Eternity.

Restrain me Lord from doing sinful deeds;
My time is short and keeping soul pure, tough;
From birth, you cater to my earthly needs;
Just help me Lord when weather turns too rough.

My life, I surrender to you, most High;
Your Will’s my goal on earth until I die!

    Thanks Sandra, Gary and James.
    Life on earth would truly be futile without God in our lives, especially in these days of modernism and 'high tech! '

    This is a truly magnificent poem. It speaks for all Christians, regardless of denomination. I am Greek Orthoxox. When I brought Christ into my heart, the Holy Spirit filled me with joy. I am now at peace with myself. The world is corrupt and sinful, but we must be true to our faith, and must always be faithful. As one of the apostles wrote, when there is something you can't see, but you know it's there, this is faith. Well done. (Report) Reply

    I enjoy both the Sonnet as the medium and the subject you communicate.
    Keep the lofty fires burning.
