My Spiritual Umbilical Cord

Passage Hebrews 6:19:
[Now] we have this [hope] as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down--a hope] that reaches farther and enters into [the very certainty of the Presence] within the veil.
At the Women's Bible Study I've been attending, we are studying the Holy of Holies and how God has given us free access into His very presence and LOVE through Jesus.
One verse really stood out to me ~ Hebrews 6:19 ~ The teacher even referred to it as our spiritual umbilical cord!
With one cut of that cord, almost 40 years ago, I lost my Mother. My only source of nourishment, identity, security, and comfort. Some adoptees speak of feeling like they are "floating" in thin air, forever searching and not able to feel grounded in life, because of this primal loss and how it dramatically affects our development, from day one.
I remember having troubled dreams as a little girl of flying around the universe on some type of journey or search, only never able to find what I had lost ~ just continually flying among the stars in search of something, but who knows what.
This scripture, if we can open our hearts to believe it, answers this need in our souls. We have an ANCHOR ~ a Spiritual Cord, or Life-line ~ which FOREVER ties us to the very throne of God, behind the veil (the veil is anything that keeps us from being able to completely see, understand, or know Him) right into His presence, His Love.
NOTHING ~ in Heaven or Earth ~ can EVER break this strong CONNECTION which wraps securely around us and is held by Him, our Creator, Father (NOT adoptive Father, by the way ~ I John 3:9 says that God's "seed" or "sperma" lives in us when we are born of God ~ He is our CREATOR and FATHER, we're created in His image and likeness ~ He is our HEAVENLY FATHER and HE IS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE ~ I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU).
Just like our natural umbilical cord provides breath, nourishment, security, and connection to our natural mother, so our spiritual connection to our Creator (through faith in Jesus) CAN NEVER BE CUT, and will CONTINUALLY provide us with LIFE and CONNECTION to the Love, acceptance, and nourishment that we all crave.
I'm so thankful for this and for the comfort of experiencing such a strong, eternal connection to my REAL Father and LIFE.
Isaiah 66:13 ~ "I will comfort you like a mother comforts her child, and you will be comforted."
