Truth is an Anchor

Truth serves as an anchor when the storms of life come.
Storms WILL come…
whether they be caused by our own faulty navigation
or that of someone else…
but we do not have to be tossed off-course when those storms happen.

Truth holds us steady when the storms make our lives chaotic.

My prayer is that those I love would have enough Truth…
enough weight in their anchor…
to hold firm during the storms that will inevitably rage around them.
That the Truth will give them the foundation that they need.
Our God knows what lies ahead…and He has provided.
Cling to His Truth…Life depends on it.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart!  I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God
 and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
This is how we know that we love the children of God:
by loving God and carrying out his commands.
In fact, this if love for God: to keep his commands.
And his commands are not burdensome,
for everyone born of God overcomes the world.
This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
Who is it that overcomes the world?
Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ.
He did not come by water only, but by water and blood.
And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.”
1 John 5:1-6
