“… Some might call it…riding his coat-tail….”

ANCHORED: Most often when we think of being ANCHORED… we’re talking about a boat or vessel being “anchored” to a dock; or the mooring of a ship to the sea-bottom, to an anchor. I am thinking of being “anchored” to a concept, a mission, or a POA…Plan-OF-ACTION.

Unless we “attach” ourselves, or in this case…. ANCHOR ourselves to something; something akin to “committing” in a very big way; then we are chasing a falling star.   In business; we do this when we ANCHOR ourselves to a particular Leader, or CEO; one that is really “going someplace,” and we want to tie ourselves to him… in his pursuits.  Thinking, of course, when Our Leader” is successful… then we will be successful along with him.  Some might call it…”riding his coat-tail.”   I’m calling it….being ANCHORED.  I am also suggesting that it could be…. That, we’re “settled-in,” for the long-haul; or committed, unchangeable.

I’m reminded of the song THE ANCHOR HOLDS by Ray Boltz… “But it was in the night, Through the storms of my life, Oh, that’s where God proved His love to me.”   We can be ANCHORED, not only, to our career issues, but a family issue, or even, more importantly….being ANCHORED to God.  He will see us through the “storms of life,” as told to us in…

James 1:12 –Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” So, you see…. God is our ANCHOR…. He will protect us, and He will save us; we only have to accept Him as Our Lord and Savior, ask forgiveness, repent, and do our best to follow Him. Psalm 34:19 – “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.”
