We have this hope as an
anchor … firm and secure.
There are times when all is well in your world. Health is shipshape. Job is secure. Family is happy.
But you live next door to a world where all is not well. An accident has turned the life of someone you know upside down. A child of someone you love is in trouble. A best friend is getting a divorce. One of the nicest people you know just lost her job.
In a still bigger world a war is going on. Abuse and human trafficking is rampant. Violence is turning peace-loving people into terrified refugees. Appalling poverty is leaving thousands homeless and hopeless.
And you live with the apprehension that there may come a time when all is not well with you and yours. No one gets through life without some dark days.
But you have a secure anchor: Jesus. You will ride out the storms and finally reach the shore where springtime is forever.
Sometimes hope is all you have; but when
that hope is Jesus you have all you need.
