Hope is My Anchor

Hope is the anchor that secures my soul
Needed for endurance as the Bible foretold
One of three qualities, along with faith and love
I am filled with hope to honor my Holy Father above

Hope in God's promises lightens my heavy load
It's instilled in me when I venture down a dark road
Hope has power to keep me moving in the right direction
And there I will find the mercy and love of God's protection

Hope is a means of trusting in what will be
Faith in the unseen; that is what hope means to me
Life without it fences me inside a brick wall without a gate
I believe in the Word of God;  I do not adhere to destiny or fate

This is a great poem, Lin. It is so deeply spiritual, w/the wisdom of ancient truths retold. You are a blessed muse worthy her gift. This was one amazing poem, a fave for sure. A7+ on the I love it scale. Much love to your, dear lady.

I agree with you, Lin...hope is our anchor; once hope is lost, it also means that love and faith have already been abandoned. ~ This is a lovely and uplifting poem; well done! ~ Regards // paul

That's so true, Paul. Without hope what is there to believe in? Life would be so futile. Thanks so much for liking this one. ;)
