Persevere

An Admiralty Pattern anchor
Through every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

Ever wish the struggling toward your life goals was easy?

It won’t be. Every good thing is essentially difficult to the degree it is good. Every good idea is opposed. Every important work is potentially strangled by urgent but in the run unimportant side issues.

And life is hard.

Drop anchor in the gale. Declare that your anchor is thrown into what you cannot see —
but know your Redeemer has held you fast and you will not be tossed about without purpose. Like the verse of the hymn quoted above says, the soft sandy beach that looks so safe and stable is just sinking sand. Drop anchor into the rocks you cannot see, the and the Rock will hold fast.
