"The anchor holds, though the ship is battered.
The anchor holds, though the sails are torn.
I have fallen on my knees as I face the raging seas.
The anchor holds in spite of the storm. "
The words of this old hymn, written by Lawrence Chewning, so aptly depicts what our State has experienced since the rain began on August 12, 2016. This historic flood has caused unimaginable devastation and hardship within our communities, but we need not despair because our "anchor holds" in spite of our circumstances.
The Lord's eyes are upon us, and He holds us in His hand. Jesus Christ is our anchor. When tough times occur and the trials of life overwhelm us, we must remember that God always has a plan. Trust Him. We may not always understand His plan or feel like His plan is best for us, but we must trust Him.
