"Stability in the storm comes not from seeking a new message, but from understanding an old one. The most reliable anchor points are not recent discoveries, but are time-tested truths that have held their ground against the winds of change. Truths like:
My life is not futile.
My failures are not fatal.
My death is not final.
Attach your soul to these boulders and no wave is big enough to wash you under.
- Max Lucado, Six Hours One Friday: Anchoring to the Power of the Cross (Portland , OR: Multnomah Books, 1989), p. 174.
