I guess I'll start by explaining my blog title. Last year I taught a life changing class on the book of Hebrews. I was absolutely fascinated by its depth and intensity. As I went through and tried to piece it together, it felt like a game of jeopardy - so many answers to questions I'd never thought to ask! The challenge of the book ignited in me a new, fresh love for scripture and what it could say to me. I hate to say it, but the Bible had become boring to me. A symptom of my stagnant relationship with Christ to be sure.
Since God had appointed me to teach this class, I knew that He was assigning me personally to dig in deeper than I would have under any other circumstances. The work load almost put me under. Gradually I fell in love - in my case, head over heart in love.
Hebrews 6:19,20a says "This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us ..." Amazing. My hope, my salvation, is anchored in the throne room. To me, this is absolute freedom. I can step out in faith an know without a doubt that my anchor with hold fast. I can ask questions, wonder, hope, be confused, not understand, ask, ask, ask, and my anchor will hold fast.
And so it has become a verse I cling to when I get tossed by the waves of this world or my own fears.
