Life and Anchors

There’s a big analogy between us and the boats sailing across the oceans. While the boats sail the vastness of the seas, we traverse the complexities of life. As the boats sail the great oceans, they try to withstand the waves and storms to reach ashore. And as we sail through our lives, we try to conquer our failures and obstacles to reach our dreams.

Life just like the sea is not always tranquil. At times there will be storms ahead that will disrupt our peaceful voyage. There will be storms that will test our durability, storms that will ruin our sails, storms that will threaten our future. Just as the boats at sea we need to anchor ourselves. We need to secure ourselves so we won’t drift away aimlessly.

Anchors are very important tools for fishermen and sailors. They use it to secure their vessels ashore so that these won’t drift out in to the open sea. A boat without an anchor will not stand a chance against the cruel sea most specially during a storm.That is why it is a necessity for every ship to have an anchor.

We need to anchor our lives because life is not always a tranquil sea. When you let yourself drift alone in life, there's a chance you might not make it out when a storm passes. We need someone whom to secure ourselves. We need someone who will hold us and keep us at bay. We need to anchor our hearts to someone we trust and someone we love.

I feel secured because I firmly anchored my heart in my family and to God. Whenever a “storm” comes I can count on their support and guidance. And my faith in God will always reassure me that He is always there watching over. How about you? Who’s your anchor in life?
