This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God's inner sanctuary. -Hebrews 6:19

I don't know if it's the season of summer, but the word anchor has been standing out in my mind. "My Anchor," by Chrisy Nockels has been on repeat in my head as of lately. The chorus goes, "My anchor, forever. My shelter within the storm. You're my deliverer. You never falter. You're the rock I stand on."

What is an anchor? It is a device, normally made of metal, used to connect a vessel to the bed of a body of water to prevent the craft from drifting due to wind or current.When I break this down in my mind, I think of it this way. We are the vessels. He connects us to a body of water. In spiritual terms, a body of water represents the Holy Spirit. He is our anchor and He connects us to His spirit. This is powerful. 

Our lives have different currents. Sometimes, the wind is so strong that we think we won't be able to withstand it. 

Our hearts drift. 
Our minds drift. 
Our priorities drift when the current in our lives change. 
But there is hope. 

The strong winds won't last forever. He is strong. He is trustworthy. He will keep us from drowning because He is the anchor that connects us to His spirit. When we put our hope in Him, we will be led into His arms. Maybe you're going through a storm. Maybe the currents keep changing on you. Maybe you are feeling tied down. Hold onto these verses.

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. -Psalm 37:14

 Hold onto the promise. He knew what was going to happen before you did. And he has a plan. 

Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorite verses when life gets tough: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." 

His plans are to help you, to give you hope and a future.
