Life is hard. The 24-hour news cycle bombards us every day and strains our optimism.

But there’s good news. It doesn't matter what crisis, what devastation, what grief, what fear is consuming you. There is always hope. It is as sure and steady as an anchor in a storm. The Christian hope is in the certainty of our resurrection - because Jesus has gone before us and made it possible. He has made a place in heaven for us and He will come back to take us there. (Revelation 1:17-18; John 14:3) We will suffer in this life; bad things will happen along with the good - but we know the end of the story. We are anchored in God’s presence - now and forever.

Trust the anchor.
