The beach, any beach is my happy place.
On a recent trip to a new beach on the east coast of Florida, while walking along the shoreline a cluster of large rocks that had been carved into a portion of the beach area appeared. Being adventuresome, I climbed over the rocks to get to the water side where small caves had formed. Standing still watching the water calmly dance around my ankles, the shells playfully tumble over my feet and listening to the sound of the waves was so calming and peaceful.
Then in the blink of an eye, a storm rolls in, the sky darkens, the waves get rougher.
Our lives can follow a similar pattern. One minute, all is calm in our world, we can see the shells, the water is crystal clear. And the next, a storm is brewing, the air changes, and we can no longer see our feet, but we can feel the scraping of the shells on our ankles and the water splashing higher on our legs as it becomes more difficult to even stand.
An event occurs and turns our life upside down! We are tossed about, our feet can barely touch the ground, water, sand and shells are crashing around us and there is nothing to hold onto, except Jesus. Jesus is our anchor! Hebrews 6: 19-20 gives us an assurance that Jesus is our steadfast hope. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. 
Thank you Jesus for being my anchor when my life is out of control and I am being tossed about by the waves of life’s circumstances.
