When trouble knocks you off of your feet, hope also seems to be swept away and feelings of hopelessnes and depression can set in. To regain a hopeful outlook on life is not difficult or complicated. All it requires is a shift in focus from feelings of hopelessness to hope set on Christ. Ship anchors are often used as a Christian symbol to represent Christ, who provides security to believers, holding them secure no matter the severity of the storm. When you have Christ as your anchor, rather than drowning in despair and depression, you are held secure in His hope.
There are many causes of hopelessness, the most common is placing our confidence on things that can fail: money, health, beauty, and status. Painful circumstances such as divorce or a rebellious child cause us to lose hope in God's will, but our hope in God should not be based on other people or circumstances. God wants to work out His purposes for you and ultimately give you peace that passes all understanding. Learn what all of the unreliable anchors are, and how to place your hope in the only anchor that will never fail.
In the section titled, "Steps to Solution‚" June Hunt gives you practical advice on:
Find an anchor for your soul and a sure hope through the guaranteed promises of God. Learn the assurances that come with Christian hope versus cultural hope. Discover the characteristics and benefits of a life harbored in the hope of God's unfailing Word.
