WFW ~ Anchor in the Storm

It's Word Filled Wednesday when we get to share Scripture.  I'm linking up with Amydeanne at the Internet Cafe.

I took this photo yesterday afternoon in Phoenix.  We rarely get rain so when it happens, people don't seem to know how to drive.  Many drivers braked quickly when the downpour hit causing a few near misses.  Others slowed down to a crawl.  I decided to take a few photos.  However, I was very careful and simply did a point and shoot technique. :)

The Hebrews Scripture reminds me that despite any storms in my life, I am safe and secure.  Jesus is the anchor for my soul. 

So no matter what He allows in my life, I can rest secure knowing that He is in control.  And more and more I'm learning that ...He is trustworthy.

Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  1. What a great verse for your photo Debbie!

    I love to be reminded of this promise... our hope in Him, an anchor in any storm or situation we may face. I couldn't live without Him nor would I want to try! eeekk! lol.

    Bless you sweet friend, and enjoy your WFW!

  2. Hi Debbie, Your post really blessed me this morning. Wishing you many blessings today.

  3. Oh, He is my firm and secure
    Anchor. Thank you for this
    encouraging reminder early
    this morning.

  4. Amen to that, Debbie!

    What storms we had yesterday. I do hope that this will help it to finally cool down for the year :)

    Glad you made it safely home.

    Love & peace,
    <>< Iris

  5. Praise God you were safe and that the rains finally came!

    Hugs and love!

  6. Your faith has been tested all year and you are a bright shining light to God's truth! We also got a lot of rain up north but not the hail like you guys in Phoenix. The evening news was something!

  7. How wonderful, both getting the rain, and knowing that whatever the storm, He is taking care of you!

    Love you sis!

  8. very thankful he is my anchor and keeps me from going astray and if I do he is always there to take me back in.

    we are praying for rain here it has been so dry. So happy that you all got a bit of rain and were safe and secure

  9. I love the rain! It's been a while since we've had some in Northern California...I think I love the rain because of the comfortable, cozy feeling I have as I watch it come down from within the safety of my home. It is the same with our Lord! Even when we are traveling through deep waters, He is with us, He is our home. We can find comfort when we turn to Him...even (and especially) during a storm.

    Encouraging post, Debbie! Thanks!

    Living for Him, Joan

  10. Great verse and picture to go with it! I've always been scared to drive in the rain. I pray a lot while it is raining and I am driving!

  11. With all the rains we've had within the past week, I can totally understand the fear of driving in these downpours. I'm glad He kept you safe from the other drivers and of course while you were snapping the pic. LOL :) Since the clouds are the "dust of His feet," does that make it seem like He's all the more closer when it's storming?? Hmmm. OH..I know He's already as close as He ever will be, because He's everywhere, but it's just a good visual to imagine---clouds, storms, trials, and the "dust of His feet" meaning---LOOK UP! He's RIGHT THERE! :)

  12. Amen.

    I thought of you last night when I heard about the storms and tornadoes in Phoenix.

  13. Debbie! What an awesome picture and verse! I'm glad that you thought of it in the middle of the storm! What an incredible visual for us today!!

    So glad you're safe!

    peace and Happy WFW!

  14. Ohhh, I love the way you put that scripture with the picture...perfect!

  15. Beautiful message!

    We need that rain... can you share???

    Oh and I just wanted to say, that for your sweet words at my blog. I really try and put the best deals out there.

  16. Very profound! That says it all.


  17. "However, I was very careful and simply did a point and shoot technique. :)" - I was doing it the other day sister Debbie, got excited when I saw 2 rainbows on my left side while out driving in the rain!!!

    That word "anchor" makes the word "hope" so profound. I have never read it the way it touched me today. Of what it truly means to be anchored on the Rock! It is a "living hope"...Glory to God!

    Take care and God bless and protect you always sister in Christ.

  18. This is such a beautiful example of God's faithfulness, Debbie. God truly is our anchor in storms and trials, keeping us secure and safe. You have found that out in your life, and your witness to it brings glory to Him. I am praising God for the rain you got!! My parents called it the monsoon season (not sure that was in fall or another time), when they lived in AZ.

    Love and hugs to you!

  19. this sure hits home with me today! thanks Debbie!
