Floating House

Hebrews 4:16

On several occasions I have seen houses moved on land, but never before
have I seen one moved across the water. I observed this awhile ago, and
it was surely a strange sight for me to behold. The house was a two
story wooden structure, balancing precisely on two large pontoons. It
was being moved through the water by a small tug boat. As I watched its
excursion through the water, it became stuck on a sandbar. The little
tugboat did all it could to move or maneuver it, but to no avail.
Before long, two more boats arrived on the scene to assist the stranded
vessel. They succeeded in their endeavor, and the house on pontoons
moved along. I wondered where it was going, and how it would be anchored
when it got there.

Like the boat-afloat, people can be moving along in life at a
comfortable pace. Before we know it, we too, can become stuck on a
sandbar of life. It can happen in a flash- and then we may be completely
immobilized, unable to move in any direction. Someone may come along and
help push or pull us off this uncomfortable spot, or it may take a joint
effort of people, circumstances, and mostly time to get us back into the
waters of life.

The question is,¼ where do we go and how are we anchored when we are
finally jarred loose from the sandbar? Do we just float here and there,
taking our chances to drift out to sea? Or, do we set our anchor deep
and secure; knowing it will hold us steady, even if the going gets
rough? We need to anchor to the Word of God, which is active and alive
(Hebrews 4:12), to the throne of God, where mercy and grace abound
(Hebrews 4:16), to the cross of God, where Jesus blood was shed, to the
body of Christ, who encourage one another (Hebrews 10:24,25), working
for God, which gives meaning, purpose and direction (Hebrews 13:16) and
to Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer. He is as strong and reliable as they
come, and His truths will carry us through the good times and bad. I
claim Jesus as my anchor today and each day of my life. Won’t you do the
same?
