Some lives are stable and some whose lives are unstable. There are those who are cool, calm and collected . . . seldom frazzled even in the most dire of situations. And then there are those who are like tumbleweed in the Utah salt flats. The slightest rustling of the winds of life sends them hurtling first in this direction and then in that direction. All of us have forces in our lives that push us in a variety of directions. The degree to which we move though is determined by what holds us in place. Think about a ship in a strong wind – two factors determine whether it is moved by the wind or not. The size of the ship and the relative size of the anchor. If the ship presents a large amount of surface area to the wind strong forces are developed to push it. But if the ship is small, a small force. And, the size and shape of the anchor makes a big difference. What is your perspective of yourself? When we see God for who He is, we trust Him for our salvation; That produces stability in our lives that frees us to serve others in love. In this, God, the anchor of our soul gets the glory. When God gets the glory, then we get the blessings of peace and comfort because our trust is in something unmovable and unchanging.
