What does it mean that Jesus is our soul’s anchor? Does it mean that the sea will always be calm? Does it mean we’ll never be tossed about?
Anchors don’t control the water around it. Anchors keep boats safe and secure in times of trouble. Floods, hurricanes, thunderstorms — if you experience any of these things, it doesn’t mean your anchor is failing. All boats go through troubled waters. But not all boats have an anchor strong enough to keep it from sinking.
