HE is our anchor

Story of the day:  Anchor

Have you ever been on a lake right after a big rain storm.  This one particular lake that we had gone too had some very strong currents.  For the most part, the lake appeared to be gentle, but we were quickly reminded that we were truly never in control.  Everytime that we threw the anchor overboard it never fully reached the floor. The anchor is supposed to keep you from drifting.  Unfortunately, our anchor and the line that it was connected to was not long enough to reach the bottom of the lake due to all the unexpected rain that we had received.  I am not even sure how deep the lake was out in the middle, but it had to be extremely deep.  There were times when we would just drift, anchor and all.  It wasn’t until we reached the shallow part of the lake, closer to shore, that our anchor would catch the bottom and the boat would stop. 

This scenario reminded me of how our life mirrors the boat and how we need to let God be our Anchor no matter how deep the water becomes.  You see, God has an unlimited supply of line to reach any area in your life that may seem out of control or full of heavy currents (burdens). So no matter where you are in your life) he will always keep you grounded and never let you drift away.

 Quote of the day:  Christy Povolish

 Don’t wait for your ship to drift away; let God be your anchor and secure you no matter how deep the water is.”

 Bible Verse of the day:  Hebrews 6:19

 We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters the inner shrine behind the curtain.

 Prayer:

 Dear Heavenly Father,

 Thank You for being an anchor in my life.  Lord, I know there are times in my life that seem so out of control and always drifting. Thank You for being the anchor in my life that always keeps me grounded and close to shore. I thank You for today.

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
