From my readings, I have found that the anchor is a symbol of hope for people of faith. The anchor is a symbol of stability and strength.
The purpose of an anchor is to keep a boat from drifting too far from its purpose. For the boat, the goal would be to stay in a specific place. For people of faith, the anchor keeps us from drifting from our faith, even during the worst storms that this life can hold.
God is our anchor, our only constant in this journey called life. God, our anchor, helps us not to be blown away by the wind and the waves created by circumstances that we can’t control.
For me, my faith in God has been my strength in everything. When I did not want to go on because the pain was too great, His anchor held me. When I have questions and doubts and want to turn away, my faith, His anchor, holds me.
