An anchor is used to hold an object to a fixed point and represents safety, stability and a hope for the future.
We need anchor points in our everyday lives, too, especially when we are busy or under pressure because those anchors hold us steady.
As long as we’re anchored to something solid and reliable, we’ll remain steady even if things feel out of our control or we’re being buffeted about by lives circumstances.
The key is to know what our anchor points in our life are. For me, Jesus and what He says in His word, daily quiet time, exercise and spending time with my husband and family are some of my main anchor points on which I secure my life.
Primarily if I keep my focus and heart anchored on these I know I will be okay because all my choices are anchored on a firm foundation and everything I do and am are attached to these anchor points.
Today I encourage you to determine your everyday anchor points to have a firm foundation to hold you steady as you move forward.
“God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which God can’t lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. “(Hebrews 6:18-19)
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast because they trust in you.” (Isaiah 26:3)
“He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.” (Psalm 62:2)
Prayer: Lord, thank you that you are in control and you; all things hold together. Please help me have the wisdom to know who and what my anchor points are and secure my life to those things so that I am not buffeted around by life but instead will catch the wind in my sails. In Jesus name Amen
