Anchors are such beautiful symbols—strong, stable, secure. More than just a symbol of my everlasting love for the sea, they never cease to remind me of the hope and refuge I have in Jesus—the source of all love and good in my life. I love how John Piper says it in A Godward Life:
“God means for our souls to be anchored to heaven. He does not want us to bob and drift on the sea of opinion, culture, trend and passion. He wants us to know our position on the coast and be safe from dashing on the rocks. So he has given us an “anchor of the soul” (Hebrews 6:19). It is “sure and steadfast.”
Here are some of my favorite hope-inspiring anchor photos to remind us all today that we can count on Jesus to keep us from drifting on the seas of the standards of this world we live in:
