Today's Photograph . . . . When You Are Drifting You Will Become A Slave To The Current And Winds Of The World  (Janet B)
Bible Study Verses
Hebrews 6:19-20
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. (ESV)
I was recently blessed with the ability to take my family on a week-long vacation to the Outer Banks. Our house was located on Pamlico Sound with a dock and access to the sound. 
The sound is pretty shallow with channels running through it. We were told by the locals our best chances at catching fish were in these deeper channels. We ended up drift fishing with kayaks and were blessed with some nice fish.

Action Point
Drift fishing the channels were relaxing and fun, but there were draw backs. One drawback is when you found a productive spot you only had a few chances to fish it before you floated by. Another was you had to go where the current took you. One time I had a nice sea trout on and wasn't paying attention and I ran into a dock.

One of the earliest Christian symbols was an anchor and when you think about it, it is a very appropriate symbol for Jesus. His love and teachings is our Anchor for life. 
Drifting through life can be a dangerous thing. When you are drifting you will become a slave to the current and winds of the world. We as people need something to hold onto when the storms come and trust me they will come.

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
When in a new area fishing or hunting talk to some of the locals you might be surprised what you can learn.
