"Finding Joy in Your Pain & Trials" Anchored by Love Divorce Recovery With Charity Matheson
Anchored by Love with Charity Matheson • August 4, 2016 • Charity Matheson
In Session 6 of Anchored by Love, we are discussing how God can use our trials, hardships and pain to bring us closer to Him and to work out things in our hearts that will make us stronger, more mature, and more capable in life. So many of us pray that God will remove our trials, instead of embracing what the Lord might be working out in our lives through them. But no matter what trial we are facing, we can cast our anxieties on Him and know that He loves us and wants to give us peace and wisdom for every hard decision we must face in life. And lastly, He is beginning a work in us that He is going to be faithful to complete in us, if we are faithful to him, and keep our eyes on our Savior. Philippians 1:6 & 4:4-8, James 1:2-7

Anchored on Identity - Rediscovering Who You Are - Anchored by Love Divorce Recovery
Anchored by Love with Charity Matheson • May 12, 2016 • Charity Matheson
When a marriage has ended - the identity that the couple spent a lifetime creating together is fractured. Divorce can leave a lot of people feeling like they don't even know who they are anymore. The key to knowing your true identity is to have your worth and your hope planted firmly in Jesus Christ. In this session we explore the foundations of rooting our identity in how our Savior sees us, not in how what the world thinks gives people their value. Having an identity firmly rooted in God will give you that solid foundation you need to live a life worth living. If you are looking to anything other than God for your self worth - you are going to come up disappointed.
