I’m Not Crazy After All

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.—HEBREWS 6:19 NIV

Am I going crazy? Am I the only person to feel this way? When we give care, it seems like we occasionally lose our minds.

The challenge of balancing schedules, dealing with demanding personalities, and constantly watching over someone can drive our entire life off course. Like a ship tossed in a storm, we can drift in a strange sea, overcome by uncontrollable waves.

But we do have an anchor—our hope in God. What does an anchor do? It prevents drifting by attaching firmly to the unmoving floor of the sea. God is that seabed, firm and secure, and Jesus is the anchor connecting us to the Father. Our anchor of hope is deep within the seabed of God.

The shape of an anchor reminds us of the cross. No wonder the first-century Christians used an anchor as a symbol of the cross. We are not adrift. We are securely fastened to God through Jesus.

No, you’re not crazy when you feel lost and confused. As caregivers, we’ll have stormy times—but we are held firm and secure by the anchor of hope. 

Lord, I cling to You as my anchor. Although I may feel lost at times, I know You are here with me, holding me secure, giving me hope.
