Anchor for the Storm

No shadow comes without the light making a way
No raging storm can ever defy one word of faith
My heart remains sure in the wind, sure in the waves

You are the anchor for my soul
You won’t let go

I wish I could say I was a great bastion of spiritual stability and I wrote those words…but neither statement would be true.  Those verses come from one of my favorite Michael W. Smith songs and while I have played so many great songs by Michael throughout the years, this one, “You Won’t Let Go” really resonates.  We don’t like to think about it, but we all face storms in our lives – some mild and some Category 4!  If left to my own power, my little ship would have been dashed against the rocks years ago.  But take heart, the next time the winds start to blow and the waters rise, Jesus Christ is our anchor – our stability – The Prince of Peace and He won’t let go.
