when the undercurrents try to pull you under

We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised #hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up His permanent post as high priest for us. Hebrews 6:19-20 MSG

God keeps reminding me that He is my safe place, my shelter, my hiding place.

Mostly of late, He has been showing me how much He is my anchor.

Coz we don’t just need an anchor during the storms, do we?

We need an anchor so we don’t drift when we arrive at our destination and when we pull in for refueling as much as to keep us secure during rough waters, torrential rains and gale force winds.

I have been praying for healing for my hubby for over 7 years now, and we have not yet seen his complete healing. Those years have obviously been filled with more than just that, but its undercurrent of incompleteness has been just under the surface for so long, it pulls on my hope in an attempt to drown it.

The most important thing about an anchor is how it isn’t seen most of the time. It is nearby until it is needed or in full use. Hope is the same.

God is:

  • Always nearby.
  • Ready to hold us close
  • Able to protect us in the stormy attacks
  • Fully equipped to keep us from slipping.
  • Constantly strengthening us for whatever it is we are facing on the journey.

So I again proclaim my great need for Him over myself, believing He is more than enough for anything we are facing.

For He will keep our heads above the high tides, our spirits up during the low tides, and securely keep us close to Him through it all.

My Hope, my Anchor? He is unshakably secure, eternally trustworthy and forever unbreakable. Amen!
