One of the slickest tools I’ve come across for helping treestand hunters hunt as safe as possible is the Life Line system from Hunter Safety System (HSS). The guys at HSS, makers of the industry’s leading tree stand harness system, know that one of the greatest risks to treestand hunters is the journey into the stand, moreso than when the hunter is safely seated and anchored in the stand. Deadly accidents happen every year as un-anchored hunters make the ascent and descent at their stands. HSS has answered this need with their new Tree Stand Life Line system. The Life Line ensures that no matter what happens on the climb, whether you slip, fall, or just struggle in the pre-dawn darkness, you are safely tethered to the life-saving line.
When I think about this life-saving gear, I can’t help but thank God that He continues to serve as a life line for His people. For those that know the Lord, life will one day be as good as it gets as we reach our final destination. But the journey getting there is tough. In fact the climb can be unbelievably brutal. There will be moments along the way when we slip, stumble, and struggle in the darkness of this world, but God is our life line. He is our anchor. We are secure in Him despite the struggles that come our way.
There was a song written years ago with the lyrics that read, “the anchor holds
though the ship is battered…the anchor holds though the sails are torn…I have fallen on my knees as I faced the raging seas…the anchor holds in spite of the storm.”
No matter what you’re going through today, never forget, the anchor holds.
