Anchor in the storm

          I saw a dot and then two lines coming from it, one line overtop the other. Then slowly one line veered off. Soon an acute angle formed, but the line kept moving farther away from each other, forming an ever-increasing angle. A feeling of anxiety swept over me.

            “What does this mean?”

            “Every decision matters, compare each one to the original true North, Christ. Small decisions made in response to circumstances develop into habits which over time results in lives skewed from Christ’s will and truth.”

therefore thus says the Lord God,

“Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion,

    a stone, a tested stone,

a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation:

    ‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’

And I will make justice the line,

    and righteousness the plumb line; ” (Isaiah 28:16-17a, ESV)

            Consider what you chose in everything, don’t let decisions happen to you ⸺ be deliberate. Don’t let circumstances move you into wrong thinking and then hasty actions.

Anchor in the storm

 “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.” (Hebrews 6:19, NIV)

            An anchor firm and secure, this sounds so reassuring for our hectic lives. Even as storms rage, the anchor holds. Not only this but our anchor in Christ is directly positioned into the Holy of Holies. We have direct access to God’s wisdom for our lives. What a glorious thing.

            It’s hard to keep our hearts and minds steady on Christ, and it’s so easy to let life’s storms alter our course.

            What have you found helpful to keep your eyes and your life on Him? To attach to the Anchor in the storm?

            His grace has allowed me to discover praise as a beautiful tool to bring me back to my Anchor. In life’s pain even a whisper of “Yes, Lord” will do.

Prayer for you and me:

May our paths be on the true north, unwavering, steady, and true. Secure us to Your grace and love so that we might never drift. We need You. Help us praise You in the storm. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
