If we let our minds follow random thoughts down the least resistance path, we tend to find ourselves sinking in a swamp of heavily burdened dark imaginings.
Such anchors may draw us to them like a lodestone of griefs past – or present.
It is much better to cut anchor and swim away than to sink deeper.
God’s word is an unsinkable lifeboat.
It is wise to climb aboard, listen, and hear the Skipper before going adrift.
It may take certain, forceful courage to face any future while refuting perceived danger in every shadow.
As so often happens fear dissipates as shadows are pierced, parting harmlessly as we pass through.
In Whom we put our full Trust will be most decisive.
