Amidst the challenges of life and unexpected obstacles thrown our way, on top of the Covid-19 outbreak, pandemic, and recovery that has changed all of our lives, Anchored was born to be a positive light locally and globally. Designs are heartfelt and filled with meaning, which will be explained blog post by post as they are released.
On a personal note, life really is filled with lessons and the older I get, the more I understand and realize. Like a veil being pulled from my eyes.
As chaotic as things may be, I somehow find peace in the midst of it all knowing that this is all for a purpose. God has a plan and purpose and I have faith that his plans are good.
After all, sometimes a little pruning must be done to blossom and grow.
Process of pruning: trim (a tree, shrub, or bush) by cutting away dead or overgrown branches or stems, especially to increase fruitfulness and growth.
What better way to launch Anchored Hawaii than to be 'born again,' visibly claiming the gospel through burying the old, and rising to walk in a 'new life' with Jesus! A handful of our Ohana got water baptized this weekend. This design was created with them in mind and titled "New Beginnings." It will be released for sale for a limited time as Anchored's very first release, signifying new adventures and new life, walking with God. Congratulations to everyone who chose to commit to and refresh their walk with Christ!
" For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you, not to harm you; to give you hope and a future. "
“ I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. ”
John 15: 1-4
