I came across this picture of a huge anchor of a American warship. It is huge. It reminds me of the anchor for the soul verse in Hebrews 6:19.
19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and entering into that which is within the veil;Hebrews 6:19 WEB
Salvation is not for the deserving. I do not deserve God’s glory and power but I get it. Because Jesus’s sacrifice qualify me.
The hope of salvation, of reconciliation with God, brought about by Jesus is like an anchor of the soul. A sure and steadfast hope. Even when the storms of life tosses me around, I can be immovable because of the anchor.
I am able to enter the veil, inside the holiest of holies, the place that God dwell because Jesus has entered as my forerunner before me. He is a forerunner, it means He is expecting me to follow Him.
Now, that is a lovely thought to dwell on.

Anchor for the Soul Lyrics
Anchor for the soul, Shelter from the storm; Thunder and the lightning Can be very fright'ning, But God is in control. Anchor for the soul, Shelter from the storm; Manna in the morning, Blessings overflowing, Leading us to home. This world's not my home, Just a-passing through. Through this life I wander, Treasure stored up yonder Somewhere beyond the blue. On my way I learn Through each path I take. Every day I'm growing, On my way I'm knowing Heaven's worth the wait. When the day is gone, When my journey ends, Won't be nothing better Then to be together With all my faithful friends. We'll all join in song Gathered 'round the throne. There'll be no more sorrow Someday when tomorrow Heaven is our home.
