“Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.  Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.  Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”
Psalm 107:28-31 KJV

Henry Lake Gilmour wrote one of my favorite hymns “The Haven of Rest”.  The words in this hymn bring peace to my heart.  “I’ve anchored my soul in the “Haven of Rest”, I’ll sail the wide seas no more; The tempest may sweep over wild, stormy, deep, In Jesus I’m safe evermore.”  Thank God for our Haven of rest. 

If we are anchored in Jesus, we are safe from danger.  We can’t make it in this world without Jesus.  Life is too hard and too dangerous.  Unless we have invited Jesus into our heart to be our personal Saviour, we aren’t living, we just exist.  I honestly don’t know how I made it before I was saved.

The newspapers and the television and the radio report rapes, murders and other things that hurt Jesus and break His heart every day.  It would really be wonderful if all they reported was encouraging news and told us how many people got saved that day.  We need a Christian station that only reports good news.

Have you anchored your soul in Jesus?  If you have, you are safe in His protective arms.  O how He loves you!  He loves you so much that He died on the cross for your sins so you can be saved and go to Heaven.  What a Saviour!  What a Friend, this Jesus of Nazareth!  I love Jesus with all my heart.
