A few weeks ago I was going through a rather hard season with anxiety. I was struggling to find hope in the situation and it was getting me kind of down. I made the decision to just go take a bubble bath with some of my favorite essential oils. These blends of oils always help me to be still and feel more calm. I waltzed into my room to gather my precious. I realized that my favorite blend to use in the bath was gone! Like the bottle was just empty. As I look up from where I’m sitting to talk to my husband in the other room, I noticed an oil on my earring box that I’ve never seen before. As I gazed at the oil confused, I called my husband and ask him if he knew where it came from. He said he found it the night before and decided to use it in the diffuser. He said he didn’t know where it came from and just assumed that it was one that I purchased. I had not. After calling a couple people we learned that it was in fact, the oil guru herself, that had given it to me MONTHS ago when I last saw her. I suppose I brought it home and it got lost somewhere in the shuffle of every day life and I had yet to ever use it. Friends….the oil is called…you guessed it! —- Anchor! It’s a steadying blend! Now, how on earth did this oil just pop up in the very moment I needed to be anchored in hope!? I mean I had just had a conversation with my husband about needing an anchor, something to hold me steady in my struggle. And then here comes God on the scene. Displaying a literal and tangible way to help my physically anchor and steady my mind. Do you believe this little display of affection from the Lord helped me to further my confidence in him taking care of me and giving me hope? It absolutely did!
So today, if you’re struggling, I pray you know there is a God capable and excited to care for you! There is Hope and a true Love you can be ANCHORed in & I pray you seek that with all the heartbeats you have!
