Jesus Is Our Anchor

I woke up this morning with this sing in my spirit as the Lord reminded me that He holds me through the storms of life. This is not the first time I’ve awoken to this beautiful hymn resonating in my spirit. It’s apparent that the Holy Spirit gently but encouragingly reminds us who the Anchor of our lives is.

Will Your Anchor Hold

Will your anchor hold in the storms of life,
When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?
When the strong tides lift, and the cables strain,
Will your anchor drift or firm remain?

We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll;
Fastened to the rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love!

Will your anchor hold in the straights of fear
When the breakers roar and the reef is near?
While the surges rage, and the wild winds blow,
Shall the angry waves then your back o’erflow?

Will your anchor hold in the floods of death,
When the waters cold chill your latest breath?
On the rising tide you can never fail,
While your anchor holds within the veil.

Will your eyes behold through the morning light,
The city of gold and the harbour bright?
Will your anchor safe by the heavenly shore,
When my storms are passed for evermore?

This hymn is so powerful! It reminds us to constantly ensure that we are grounded in Christ Jesus so that we can withstand any storm. This warms my heart and strengthens my faith. I am grateful that the Lord Jesus Christ is my strong deliverer, my anchor and he hears and answers my prayers. What comfort and assurance in such a time of uncertainty in our world! Let us all hold fast to the Rock, that Rock is Christ.

I am grateful that Jesus is my anchor. I pray for you today that you will not be tossed by the storms of life. I pray for the lost that in this time of pestilence they too will find Him as their Anchor for their souls. Thank you Jesus. You are the anchor that holds my life.

This question comes to us all in this perilous time. Are we anchored onto the Lord so that we will not drift?

I Miss You Dad

Oh! sire today I reminisce the days of your physical existence,
Regretting how you severed abruptly in the cold, dark distance.
You fleet away from grasp,
And time had passed and lapse,
And I’m here in dolour,
Adrift from reality like in a dream of horrors.

I’m here in dismay,
Teardrops turning torrid into miry clay.
Though your words of wisdom are lights to my path,
Unanswered questions enhancing distraught.
There is no one to replace,
the man that kept me safe.
My beloved father so genial and clever,
My heart bleeds not solely because you’re gone but the things I wish I could have said before you severed.

Losing my dad is by far the most painful and heart-ripping and life-altering experience I’ve endured. Today, my message is simple, I miss my dad. He was and will always be, my hero.

Divergent Paths

I stood at a crossroad wondering which road to choose,
Left or right, what will I gain or what will I loose,
I’m not sure if it’s better to choose, quickly…. or to contemplate,
for if I go the wrong direction, it will already be too late,
I stood motionless with confusion,
nothing to lead me with fresh infusion
left or right,
no markers in sight,
the path to the right looks rocky, yet it holds a special allure,
that is the way I really want to go, but I’m still a little unsure.

It seems hard but I must make a choice,
I know I must always listen to my inner voice,
slowly I stepped to the right on a stone filled path, knees shaking and feeling weak,
each stone wobbles as I try to balance my feet,
echos behind me speak of failure, but I have no desire to listen,
thoughts flashed across my mind of many who went missing,
as I travellled along the path, tears welled up in my eyes,
many questions lingered in my mind, I begin to ask God why…

Instantly I felt a warm embrace,
as my tears caressed my face,
many will never understand the feeling I got, it’s hard to explain but I’ll do my best,
I’d imagine it’s like fresh air deeply inhaled into my chest,
my lungs filled up with all the freshness,
and I exhaled all that causes me stress,
I continued on the rocky path, I know it is the best,
at last am free from misery, at last my feet found rest.

If you’re faced with obstacles along the right path, take heart knowing that you’re not on your own, God is with you every step of the way.

Infinite Love

A truly happy life does not happen without you,
I love you and everything you are and do,
You’re perfect and so is this love we share,
No one else in the world could even compare.

Just being near you sets my heart afire,
It’s you alone that my heart and soul desire,
Your love is patient, kind and true,
My heart and soul yearn only for you.

Your presence gives a special feeling of harmony and peace,
It gives such tranquility, warms my heart and makes my sorrows cease,
many say I’m fortunate and rich,
But this relationship with such peace, I’ll never switch.

I cannot comprehend so great a love, it’s extended to me each day,
It has brought blessings to me, more than words can say,
Every day I am drawn to you more and more,
Without you life is meaningless and empty, and you know that for sure.

Sleepless Night

As I lie sleepless in the stillness of the night,
Thoughts of perplexity of the unknown, crowded my mind,
I feel so tired, weary, and weak, yet my mind refuses to sleep,
the darkness of the night encompasses every crevice of my mind.

In the stillness of the night, tears cascade down my cheeks,
Petrified of conjured shadows, prowling monsters, imagined adversaries,
Gnats are quite a nuisance, mosquitoes are a great threat,
Too many things exhaust my mind, I’d like to go to sleep.

In the stillness of the night, my thoughts slowly drowning in depths of depression,
sound of my sighs disturb my slumber,
Tired of this insomnia, yet once again I relive my plight,
of uneasy passage through another sleepless night.

In the stillness of the night, I toss and turn trying to find comfort in this bed,
I lie awake restlessly, eagerly awaiting the break of dawn,
In the sleepless night I lie awake,
Being thankful I made it through another day.

Resilience

I cry myself to sleep last night,
my tear-soaked pillow screams, I’m tired of this fight,
Unending tortures, unceasing horrors that words fail to describe,
emotionally, mentally and physically, there is no place to hide.

On days when the sun is too hard to see,
I ask this question, of all the people in this world, why me?
My dripping heart agonizes for peace,
Sighing…after every challenge comes an ease.

With courage and strength, I rise and do my best,
I never give up hope, I must not fail this test,
Aiming for new heights I know I must win this fight,
Better days are coming, the darkness will turn into light.

Nothing in life is ever easy, I tumble before I rise,
I maintain my composure, keep my eyes on the prize,
So when the weight of the world tries to pull me down,
I will stay resilient, pray, smile and wear my crown.

My Prayer Life

I cannot live off bread alone,
If heaven will one day be my home.
My prayer needs to be constant,
I must pull myself away from what is stagnant.

Prayer must change me to a level most profound,
Soaring higher each day, with feet firmly on the ground.
Praying for the burning passion to strive for perfection,
Having my eyes on Christ, to point me in the right direction.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

I Will Rise Again

Through the suffering and the pain,
I will rise again,
There is no pain that can extinguish my light,
No trials or problems that will stop my fight,
Like the sun in the sky, I will rise again.

Through the tears and the pain,
I will rise again,
I will rise again, through the threatening maws of the waves,
I will rise again, though the shackles laced around my limbs like a cage,
from the ashes of despair, I will rise again.

I will not be oppressed,
I refuse to be depressed,
This stress is just a test,
to prepare me for what’s next!

I will rise again like the splendour of the day,
as the sun slips over the horizon and fades away,
This is just the beginning, this is not the end,
I will rise above, I will rise again.
