An Anchor In the Bottom of the Sea
         Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast .         
         (Heb. 6:19)

  The Lord opened me that I saw through all these troubles and temptations. My living faith was raised, that I saw all was done by Christ the life, and my belief was in him. When at any time my condition was veiled, my secret belief was stayed firm, and hope underneath held me as an anchor in the bottom of the sea, and anchored my immortal soul to its Bishop, causing it to swim above the sea, the world where all the raging waves, foul weathers, tempests, and temptations are.
  (George Fox)
