May 5 Echoes of Eternity
We . . . have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast.
Cling to My cross. It is the anchor of your soul. Wild thoughts, ideas, temptations—all would dash you to pieces. Here, only here, is your safety. It is the Rock of Ages—and in it there is safety through every storm.
Cling to My cross. For there you know of very surety that your only claim on Me is My sovereign love. You did not create it—it was before you. You do not control it or destroy it—for I am God. But clinging here, you can keep a fresh awareness of the relationship between us. It is based not on merit but on grace.
You are a very insecure soul—never fully trusting for more than a moment. Your faith is still weak and puny—and far from the robust health I will for it. Your past trials have had some results—but O, My child, how much more you could have learned from My goodness!
