Anchor of Hope


This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast... 
Hebrews 6:19 NASB
Christ is the HOPE we have as Christians. He is Grace that is Greater and Blessed Assurance. With Christ and in Christ and through Christ, we can know a HOPE that is both sure and steadfast. In times when the ocean roars, when storms threaten, when darkness covers our celestial navigation, with this HOPE we will endure until calm waters return.
Whatever circumstances come, let us go forward with HOPE, find our rest in HOPE and our strength through HOPE, sure and steadfast. When someone asks you what HOPE is, tell them, "It's an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God." Hebrews 6:19 The Message)  Tell them, "HOPE is Christ!" ~dho
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.*
