Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Overcome.

The verse came in the middle of the night, 4AM to be exact, and continued to weave its way deeply into my thoughts until it stirred me out from the bed …

“This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.” (Hebrews 6:19, NLT)

Anchors. They keep a vessel tethered for safety and to prevent drifting. They can be permanent or temporary but one thing is certain – if one does not want to drift or be overcome, one must be anchored when the storms occur.

Overcome, as defined by dictionary.com, is “to prevail over; to surmount; to conquer.”

Life can usher in a storm quicker than the blink of an eye. The storms may threaten to overcome us if we do not remember that we have an Anchor. We are held safe and secure as the Anchor will hold.

Our Anchor will not slip, break down, come untied, nor let us go for we have a permanent anchor.

He will hold and He will hold us.
And we will not be overcome.
