- a heavy object attached to a cable or chain and used to moor a ship to the sea bottom, typically having a metal shank with a pair of curved, barbed flukes at one end.
It takes a very heavy and securely fastened chain to hold a ship firmly in place, so it doesn’t leave it’s mooring place. So when we talk about God being our ‘anchor’ we are referring to God being the One who is always by our side, who never leaves us, and is our strength and shield during times of trouble.
You're the Lord Almighty Your every word is sure And in Your love unfailing I'm safe when oceans roar Yes, I'm safe when oceans roar My anchor, forever My shelter within the storm You're my deliverer You never falter You're the rock I stand on Here within the struggle And every crashing wave You are more than able Your hand is strong to save I hold on to You And You hold on to me Jesus, I hold on to You And You hold on to me
This is so true Dorothy. I need him as my rock this week
