My Anchor Holds

Tho' the angry surges roll, on my tempest driven soul, 
I am peaceful for I know, wildly thought the winds may blow, 
Iv'e an anchor safe and sure that can evermore endure.

 And it holds, my anchor holds, Blow your wildest then, O gale,
On my bark so small and frail, by His grace I shall not fail, 
For my anchor holds, my anchor holds!
Troubles almost 'whelm the soul; griefs like billows o'er me roll, 
tempters seek to lure astray, storms obscure the light of day.
But in Christ I can be bold, I've an anchor that shall hold!

"We who have taken refuge would have strong 
encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure 
and steadfast and one which enters within the veil."
Hebrews 6:18b-19

Wow, Anna. Such a powerful post. Isn't it amazing how you can hear a song or read a verse over and over -- but then how quickly it comes to life in the face of a real situation!??! And the words go so much deeper when applied to real life struggles. Thank you for sharing this!

Love ya, girl! And look forward to seeing you soon!
