Will your anchor hold?

Like many of you, my heart is heavy these days. In light of the tragedies of the past several weeks, the American political conventions seem ridiculous, almost scandalous.

At church this morning I was reminded that there is no answer for any of the needs of our aching hearts apart from Jesus. And I thought of this old hymn that I haven't sung for years:

Will your anchor hold in the storms of life,
When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?
When the strong tides lift, and the cables strain,
Will your anchor drift or firm remain?

Certainly we are facing the storms of life in the United States and around the world. And while political leaders and government policies might be important, they will not save us. They do not offer an anchor that will hold.

Only the Savior offers that.

We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll;
Fastened to the Rock that cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior's love.

The love of the Savior provides an anchor for our souls. |

Thank God for Jesus.


  1. So true, Richella! Love that old hymn!

  2. I've had a thing for anchors the past few years... one of my favorite verses is the first part of Hebrews 6:19- We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure... ♥ You're right-- this world is feeling more ridiculous as of late, but our victory is sure. Have a blessed day Richella!
