The stormy waves are expected. The option isn’t waves or no waves. The option is to let the waves push me around or be anchored in Jesus. In Ephesians 4 Paul warns about the coming waves and encourages all believers to find themselves anchored securely in Jesus. The famous hymn “Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me” uses the nautical imagery and paints a picture of how Jesus pilots us safely through the waves of life:
Jesus, savior, pilot me over life’s tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll, hiding rock and treach’rous shoal.
Chart and Compass come from Thee. Jesus, savior, pilot me.
Dear Jesus, Thank you for anchoring my life! Amen.
