So as you may know, there was a major hurricane that hit Lake Charles, Louisiana head on.
It left behind some SERIOUS devastation in its wake.
In life, there are storms and trials we go through. Some are small and some rock us to our core.
Just like a boat in a storm needs an anchor to keep it steady and secure, we also need an anchor in our storms.
There is a song that says “I have this hope, as an anchor for my soul”, and the hope it’s talking about is Jesus.
Jesus is the anchor for our souls. He keeps us steady and sure.
There have been so many times that I know without a doubt that I wouldn’t have made it without Jesus. Like the time I was inappropriately grabbed. The next day I went to church and cried out to Daddy God and he helped me get through it.
If you are going through a storm, here are some ways to lower your anchor and ride through it.
You need to sit at Jesus’ feet. To do this, you need to find a quiet place to sit and worship the Lord.
Cry out to your heavenly Father. He wants to hear your cries because He cares for you.
Thank Him for helping you and praise Him through the storm.
These are just a few ways you can get your anchor down and be better for it!
Remember, God loves you and so do I!
