As per usual, I procrastinated to get this year’s Lenten Devotional submitted. I began thinking about what I was going to do for this year. As I began thinking about my Lenten Devotional, I also began thinking about how much I missed summer and getting to go out for a day on the boat with my family. That is when the idea hit me: Anchor. I realized the similarity between God and an anchor you use to secure a boat. Both keep you where you need to be, both are strong, and both are very necessary.
God is the anchor to our faith, he keeps us from drifting away. If you really think about it, an anchor is a metaphor for how much God cares and loves us. He loves us so much, he was willing to give up his son for a better life for us. A life where sins can be forgiven if you are sorry. It is kind of like we are anchored to him; no matter how much we sin, how many bad things we do, or how many times we turn to the devil instead of him, he still has so much love in his heart, that he can continue to love us and care for us.
Good and gracious God, thank you for keeping us grounded and anchored to you. Thank you for this season leading us to a day so great and holy. In his name we pray, Amen.
