What Is Our Anchor?


What is our anchor?
When ebola fears close schools,
Shut down flights,
Ostracize people.
What is our anchor?

Where is our anchor?
When terror closes borders,
Closes minds,
Closes hearts,
Where is our anchor?

Who is our anchor?
When fear grips our hearts,
Freezes our guts,
Stunts our prayers?
Who is our anchor?

Our strength comes from God,
The maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:2)

May we anchor ourselves,
Our hearts, minds, and spirits
In you, Mighty God. Amen.
