Anchor of My Soul

Have you ever heard the song "Anchor of My Soul" by (I think...) Jenny Jordan Frogley? It was on the 1998 EFY CD "Joy in the Journey" and it was my favorite song on the CD. I used to listen to it all the time, especially when I was struggling with disappointment and grief. The song is still on my iTunes and makes my heart very happy whenever I hear it. I love the power of the lyrics:

All alone I leave the harbor
So many oceans to explore.
On my own I face the darkness
As I leave behind the safety of the shore.

When I'm tossed upon the waters.
When winds of change begin to blow.
His words of truth I will follow.
The Savior's hope is the anchor of my soul.

Sailing on to deeper waters
The journey starts to take its toll.
And I am lost amid the battles
That test my faith and stretch my soul.

When I'm tossed upon the waters.
When winds of change begin to blow.
His words of truth I will follow.
The Savior's hope is the anchor of my soul.

Voices of the night
Trying to tear me from the fight.
But somewhere deep inside my heart I know
That when I'm tossed upon the waters.
When winds of change begin to blow.
His words of truth I will follow.
The Savior's hope is the anchor of my soul.

All alone I leave the harbor.

These words are true and testify of the mercy of Jesus Christ. No matter how evil or awful the waves of the world are, we can be safe if we stay anchored to our testimonies of the Savior. If we follow His words and live by His teachings, we can even avoid many of the storms that others face due to the consequences of their choices. I know that I have been firmly anchored at times, and it has literally saved my soul.

What are some things that you do to stay anchored in Christ?
