I have learned so much from my friend Micah Maddox. I’m thrilled that her first book, Anchored In, is releasing this week!
A few years ago, I watched a video on the Proverbs 31 Ministries website, and I saw Micah give a short testimony about attending the She Speaks conference. Her gentle voice and humility drew me in, so I googled her name and found her blog. I spent the next half-hour trolling her website, thinking, “This woman gets me.”
I’m honored to serve on the launch team for Anchored In. This book is Micah’s heart. Through scenes from her personal struggles, she shares how Jesus has been her anchor in each storm. She writes with transparency, and she doesn’t shy away from sharing hard truths. Her words uplift and encourage.
If you are going through a hard season, Anchored In will ground you. You will feel less lonely in your season of struggle, because you know someone like Micah has been there before. More importantly, you will learn how God is anchoring you by standing strong and secure under the waves.
I’m going through a few trials right now, and this book has reminded me that God is with me in my storms. He has a plan for me even when I’m suffering and he’s holding me close even when I feel unsure and alone.
A sampling of quotes from Anchored In:
- Time doesn’t heal all wounds; Jesus does.
- He binds up our wounds one by one and helps us understand the only way to live is anchored in His power.
- I can press into the depth of abandonment, I can run from it, or I can call on God.
- When your soul is consumed with heartache, there’s no way to overcome it without God’s power and presence.
- When we remember the power we are anchored to, even in the deep places of our past, we will begin to experience God for who He really is–the anchor of everything we are.
- A focused heart brings simplicity and satisfaction to life. A divided heart brings discouragement.
When we honor Him as the anchor of our lives, God uses even the darkness to bring him glory.
Even if you’ve been a fan of Micah for a long time (like me), you’ll discover new truths and find new hope in Anchored In. If you or a friend are going through a tough time, this book will encourage you and strengthen your faith.
