Hebrews 6:19 tells us that “we have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure”. As a Navy veteran, I love the picture that this verse uses of the anchor. Every ship has an anchor to hold it in place at the end of a day’s travel or to hold it steady during great storms. And, that is what we have done. We have placed our trust in Jesus Christ so that he can keep us grounded during the ups and the downs of life. He is, and always will be, our strength and our comforter.
We daily place our trust in God, the Creator of all things who knew us before we were born. We are so very thankful that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. A loving act, that has saved us from eternal judgment. Our relationship with Jesus allows the Holy Spirit to dwell inside us and to teach us how to be more like Him. We look forward to the day that we get to see Jesus face to face. But, until that day, we will do our best to follow Him and take care of all that he has provided.
