Obsession with Anchors


Recently I’ve had this obsession with anchors. Why? Because I love the sea? Not really, I actually get extremely motion sick and hate “ridiing the waves”… I’d prefer to lay on the beach and watch them.

Because I love nautical fashion?? Well, kinda. This is not the reason behind my obsession of anchors but I do really, really love nautical fashion. Bring on the navy stripes and red! Love how clean it always looks.
Amazing. I want it all. 
My obsession of anchors comes from an old gospel song. The music minister in my church used to sing it all the time. And lately, it’s served as a good reminder that no matter what is going on in your life “the anchor holds.” Here is the chorus:
the anchor holds
though the ship is battered
the anchor holds
though the sails are torn
i have fallen on my knees
as i faced the raging seas
the anchor holds
in spite of the storm

Raging seas of life. Man, they can be brutal; but no matter how much you have been tossed around or how motion sick you are – God will always be your anchor. We have to trust in him even through the rough patches. Isn’t it great to know that as long as we have him holding us down, we can weather the storm?

That is why I have an obsession with anchors.

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” – Hebrews 6:19


(I told you it was old school...)
