Where There Is Faith, There Is Love - Poem by Michael Hopkins

Faith renews
Faith restores
Faith opens the doorway to one's heart
And one's freedom from fear
For where there is faith
There is love,
And where there is love
Fear cannot exist.
So
Go in faith
And you open a gateway
To a new kind of living.
One
That many have dreamed about
For countless centuries


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Note: This was written by Me in 1998 before I gave a lecture and included it in a series of Inspirational writings that I published in 2002. I decided to put into into a poetic form and re-publish it today on my blog. I always liked the message and the flow of the words in this one

    Excellent poem Michael...I particularly like the poem's ending. In the new light of faith we can now actualise what 'many have dreamed about for countless centuries.' (Report)Reply

    I see Faith with a capital F as a gift with the Power to transform

    After reading this poem, I am also inclined to repeat the words mentioned in your notes 'I always liked the message and the flow of the words in this one'. The message inspires and the music of the words delights. Thanks a lot for sharing this solitaire of a poem. I quote:
    Faith opens the doorway to one's heart
    For where there is faith.... There is love,
