Weekly Challenge ~ Reflections

Reflections ~ Anchored Secure

Is your boat safely harbored,
Readied for each stormy gale?
Are you anchored securely,
Lest there come some rough travail?

Have you found quiet refuge,
Unconcerned by wind or wave?
Are you tethered completely;
Your hope, confident and brave?

Fear, need not loose your moorings,
Or trials your peace assail.
For within the fiercest gust,
There is a Way to prevail.

Why guess how you’ll navigate;
On your own think what to do?
There’s an Anchor for the soul,
Who will never forsake you.

Let go of reservations,
Fix your trust on God above.
Set your compass on His truth;
Your reflections on His love.

****

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”
Hebrews 6:19a
NIV

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways ~ Sunset Reflections

Colorful sunset reflections

Colorful sunset reflections

I took these photos while on a sunset stroll around a lake near my home.  My focus that evening was on the colorful clouds and their reflections on the lake.  Of the two views, I liked the way the clouds looked in the horizontal one better, but the reflections in the vertical view gave them a more dramatic look.

Reflections on water, no matter how still the conditions, always seem to have some distortion.  The image is never completely mirror perfect. 

It reminds me of how our understanding of things, compared to what we will know one day in heaven, is dim and imperfect.  Answers we seek for life’s puzzling circumstances elude us now, but will in heaven become crystal clear. 

Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.  All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
I Corinthians 13:12  NLT
