Something to hold on to

Weather is something that fascinates a lot of people. I remember when I was a kid the only weather report was the five minute report you got on the nightly news. They might do two segments of a teaser and one was a full report...but that was it. You might hear the forecoast on the radio, but that was it. Now we have two, count that, TWO, channels on TV that are 100% committed to just weather. Two channels that all they do is weather. Wow! We have weather radios, weather apps, and all kinds of places you can get weather information. 

You may think this is total overkill unless you are about to be in a major storm. If you have a tornado that could be coming your way you will be glad to have some weather information. If you a hurricane could possibly flatten your house in the next 2-3 days you'll be glad that Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel is willing to hang onto a light pole to give the lastest tracking of the hurricane. All of us want to be ready when the storm comes through. 

But what about life? Are you prepared for the storms of life? 

As a minister I've watched many people endure some pretty serious storms. I've watched families go through things that have broken my heart. The difference between people that make it through the storms and people that break down is whether or not they have God to hold onto. 

Hebrews 6:19 says that our hope in God is our anchor. What does an anchor do? An achor holds you in place when everything around is moving. You might be out fishing in some rough waters, but with your anchor firmly in place you aren't going anywhere. The same is true of God. God never changes. He never moves. God cannot be shaken or broken down. It doesn't matter what happens around God, God remains the same...unchanged, unmoved, unwavering. 

Life is constantly changing. Storms are constantly coming. We face cancer, job loss, loss of loved ones, relationships are broken, we go bankrupt, and we get hurt. What happens to us when things around us are falling apart? It all depends on if have something solid to hold onto. Do you? I really hope so. If you need help determining this answer, please contact me. You can find me on Facebook, you can email me, there are several ways to contact me. I'd be glad to help you.
