Promises to rest as an anchor for our soul

When we feel lonely

Jesus tells us

He’ll never leave us or forsake us

Heb. 13:5

Jesus is our intimate companion

When things appear a tangled disappointment

Jesus informs us of His love relationship in us

“And we know that all things work together

for good for us who love God”

Rom. 8:28

for we’re called according to His purposes

God has goals, purposes and plans in every

minute detail in our lives.

Every particular, every circumstance, every unscheduled peculiarity is deliberate, intentional and calculated by God’s loving hand for good for us

It’s our glory and it’s an honor to search God’s

purposes and specific intentions out

When we feel overwhelmed with inadequacies

Jesus speaks to us saying

That His Spirit helps us in our weakness.

For we don’t know what to pray for as we

ought, so the Spirit Himself intercedes for us

Rom. 8:26

When we feel criticized

When we feel rejected

When we feel used and condemned

Jesus speaks to us saying

Who are they that condemn you?

I’m Christ Jesus,

I died for you—

more than that,

I was raised for you—

And You are raised with me

I’m Your advocate at the right hand of God, 

I’m constantly interceding for you

Rom. 8:34 

When our burdens and worries are oppressive

When we feel like no body knows or cares

Jesus speaks to us saying

Cast all your anxiety on Me

because I care for you

1 Peter 5:7 

When we feel destitute and disadvantaged

Jesus speaks to us saying

In my Father’s house are many mansions.

If it were not so, I’d have told you that

I go to prepare a place for you?

And if I go and prepare a place for you, 

I will come again and will take you to myself,

that where I am you may be also

John 14:2-3

We need anchors for our soul in the stormy

seas of life

When we feel like we’re tossed overboard

When we feel we’re sinking and drowning

in disappointments and setbacks

Jesus voice is our anchor

And He says

“be still before the LORD

wait patiently for Him.”

Psa. 37:7

And Jesus assures

they who wait for the LORD will renew their strength;

they will mount up with wings like eagles;

they will run and not be weary;

they will walk and not faint

Isa. 40:31

I have a little dog who demands attention from me all day.

She barks constantly.

I’ve tried to redirect her barking.

But she wants to be in our lap all day

and in our bed all night.

Everywhere we go she wants to go.

Jesus tells me be like your little dog

I know her vocabulary is limited to a growl or a bark but her passion is clear.

She wants to be near to us, even in our lap.

Jesus tells us

let me see your face, let me hear your voice;

for your voice is sweet,

and your countenance is lovely

Song of Solomon 2:14

Make haste, my beloved,

and be like a deer

on the mountains of spices.

Song of Solomon 8:14

Who is this I see coming up from the wilderness, leaning on and arm in arm with her lover?

I found you in the forest,

and I woke you up to my love.

Song of Solomon 8:5
