When in twenties, I was distressed, There was so much suffering around, I just couldn't bear it If God existed, why was he not doing anything So many unanswered questions A friend suggested I should read scriptures In them I understood, Sin was the cause of miseries Salvation was the goal of life Surrender to lord the easiest way to achieve it One day, I bowed down before the Lord Told him " I give you my body and mind. They are yours to use as you want" Then, the constant struggle began to end my doership I kept telling myself, I am not doing, God is doing I should not worry, it is no longer mine Eng your ego Rama, I kept repeating As I was struggling to surrender unto the lord, I heard a voice from within my heart I knew it was the voice of God. I was beside myself with joy This voice has been with me since then whispering to me Stopping me whenever I am about to sin It is a proof of presence of God His agape love for me This love has been my inspiration for whatever I do it never ceases So much passionate about my well-being, I am amazed Reflecting that love in my surroundings, I care, serve, try to be good God has been with me when I suffered physical and mental agony, With me when I cried endlessly His voice within told me, miseries end sins Once all sins end you will automatically reach me. Despite suffering, my faith is unwavering Now I treat pain as gift of God Understand it is a pathway to reach him God gives me courage hope and healing Confidence that I will soon get liberated and reach my home The voice of God within should stay with me forever Love of God for me should never cease These are my only prayers I have no other desire in life If suffering can take me to him, I want more and more suffering I merely want to reach God, The only person who loves me truly, unconditionally! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reaction. Do not fear." Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 18, verse 66 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 03.05.2021 Contest Name : Agape Sponsor : Regina McIntosh
