Meditation from Joanne Lowe


“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”
Hebrews 6: 19, 20 (King James Version)

Priscilla Jane Owens who taught Sunday school penned this encouraging song “We Have an Anchor”. These words should bring encouragement, hope and comfort to our hearts “We have an anchor that keeps the soul, Stedfast and sure while the billows roll, Fastened to the Rock which cannot move, Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love.”

There are times when we anchor our hopes on our families, our friends, our jobs, our money and our possessions instead of on Jesus. These things are temporary and they do not give us a real and lasting hope. The only real hope we have that is permanent and one that we can depend on is our solid rock, our precious Saviour.

When we are grounded firm and deep in our Saviour’s love, we will have a peace that the world can’t give us and the world can’t take from us. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9: 6).

Heavenly Father, thank You for opening Your heart of love and compassion and sending Your beloved Son into the world to not only be our Saviour, but also to be our anchor of hope. Jesus, thank You for being here for us when all hell comes against us and we feel like we are going under for the last time. We love You so much and we appreciate all that You do for us. Amen.
