OUR ANCHOR

Updated: Jun 20, 2023


In the times in which we are living, our emotions are all over the place. We feel tossed and jolted from one emotion to another. We are up and we are down. We feel happy and then we feel complexed. Our minds wonder. Our thoughts sometimes extreme. We ponder if isolation will become a part of the new “normal”. We contemplate, will we ever get back to the way things were. And if we do not what will life be like. As humans, our minds, toggle back and forth with many thoughts. Ultimately hoping that the questions will be answered, soon. When we are experiencing this, it reminds me of a ship on the ocean being manipulated by the movement of the waves and the forces of the winds. In this scenario, we are the ship. Our movement is erratic or at a stand-still which is often dictated by what we have going on in our lives. Troubled times can feel as if the winds are blowing, and we feel sea-sick because our emotions are here and there and everywhere. We are left wondering how we stabilize ourselves and not drift into an insecure and unsafe place. Well, just as a ship uses an anchor to prevent the vessel from drifting due to the wind or water current, we must have an anchor for the exact same purpose. God is our Anchor as it reads in Hebrews 6:19(a), ‘We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure’. The winds of life may blow us around and the waves of life may rock us back and forth but if we are anchored, we will surely not drift away from peace, safety, and the promises that God has for us. Just as it reads in Acts 27:29, ‘Fearing that we would be dashed against the rocks, Paul and the prisoners dropped four anchors from the stern and prayed for daylight.’ That is a perfect example for us. When it feels like night in life, situations seem dark, seek your Anchor, and pray for the daylight. God will keep you safe and He will not allow the winds and the waves to destroy you. With God as our Anchor, we will be secure, and daylight is on the horizon. Suggested Verses: Matthew 8:26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and Mark 4:41 rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. Mark 4:41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey Him!”
