Day 27 – Anchor

Decisiveness has never been a strong point of mine.  Whether it’s picking out a new set of dishes or shopping for that perfect pair of boots, I’m not satisfied until I’ve seen all my options, then I need to weigh each one out, and through a process of elimination, finally….decide to check one more store before making a decision!

OK, maybe I’m not quite that bad, and I have definitely gotten better over the years, but there’s just that little voice in my head that I struggle with that’s sure as soon as I make my final decision, I’ll see something better and regret not waiting a little longer.  But I know this about myself, and try to prepare for the inevitable “buyer’s remorse” that hits, especially with large purchases.  When we bought our current home, I reminded my husband, that though I knew we were making the right decision, to be patient with me in a day or two when I would be absolutely sure we had made a terrible mistake and remind me that I always feel this way, and that it will pass!  (And that absolutely did happen, by the way….)

I’m so thankful my relationship with God isn’t dependent on me and my ability to stay constant and true.  Try as I might to faithfully rely on God alone for strength and guidance, especially in the storms, it’s so easy to have my head turned by the size of the waves or the darkness in the clouds.  Before I know it, faith can turn to fear and leave me wondering not only if I’ll survive the tempest, but if God even sees me struggling to stay afloat!

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf.”

Hebrews 6:19,20a (NIV)

This scripture from Hebrews reminds us that our salvation isn’t in our hands….but in the hands of the one who has already gone before and laid an anchor so deep and strong nothing can tear it from its foundation.  He’s got us, friends….he’s truly got us!

I may be indecisive at times, but Jesus certainly is not.  He is unshakable in his commitment to us and his unrelenting love that was, is and is to come.  He is the true anchor for our soul and following him is by far the best decision I’ve ever made.  ❤

Holding fast with you,

Shellie

Anchor

Hillsong

I have this hope
As an anchor for my soul
Through every storm
I will hold to You

With endless love
All my fear is swept away
In everything
I will trust in You

There is hope in the promise of the cross
You gave everything to save the world You love
And this hope is an anchor for my soul
Our God will stand
Unshakeable

Unchanging One
You who was and is to come
Your promise sure
You will not let go

Your Name is higher
Your Name is greater
All my hope is in You

Your word unfailing
Your promise unshaken
All my hope is in You
