An Anchor for the Soul

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

Life is full of uncertainties. It is impossible to know exactly what the future holds or what struggles tomorrow will bring. Our faith in God gives us a confident expectation that He has a plan for us. This hope holds us steady, like an anchor connecting us to God. It prevents us from unknowingly drifting when we are enjoying the calm waters of a beautiful day, and it stands strong when the waves are crashing down around us through the stormy nights.

When I am in the midst of the storm, I will pray:
Father, although I struggle sometimes, I have hope in You. This unbreakable connection to You gives me the strength to go on, knowing that You will see me through every tidal wave. Amen

Continually Seek Him

“Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him.”
– ‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16:11‬‬

Never stop seeking Him.
Never stop exploring His Word.
Never stop bringing Him into each and every day.

Every day that you spend holding on to Him is a day that you are not letting go and drifting away. Whether you spend 5 minutes reading a devotional, 15 minutes studying the Bible, 30 minutes journaling, an hour volunteering your time to serve others…continue to seek His face.

Dear God, I seek You and Your love with all my heart. I don’t want to spend a day without You. I want to keep You in my thoughts and actions. I pray that I grow closer to You with every passing day. Amen

He Renews My Hope and Cheer

“When doubts filled my mind, Your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”
– ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭94:19‬‬ NLT

Stress, worries, doubts, fears… it’s easy to allow these things to fill your mind to the point of feeling hopeless. But allowing yourself to suffer isn’t going to solve your problems.
Turn to His comfort and make room in your head and in your heart for hope, cheer, and even joy!! Deal with the problems that are causing your anxiety and doubts…but do so with the right mindset, knowing that God’s promises are true.

When my head is full of worries and doubts, I will pray:

Lord, please renew my hope.
Comfort me in my distress.
Bring me joy in my sadness.
Help me to push the stress out of my head and remind me to hold on to my hope in You, Lord. Amen
