Life is hard. We need an anchor.
We are all trying our best to stay afloat in a world that constantly changes current, in a tide of insecurities that never seems to recede. Jesus, our life-preserver in a rising tide; our anchor in rough waters. This hope that is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. (Hebrews 6:19) Our anchor does not falter, whether the water is cold or hot, soft or strong, quick or slow. He is constant. He never pushes, he always leads. The world it pushes. Read this, watch that. Talk this way, think like everyone else. Raise your kid like this expert says, until the next expert comes along that is more popular. Buy, buy, buy… it will make your life easier, more interesting, more envied. It’s exhausting, swimming in this current, so strong that you end up only treading water. Until we learn to float.
