  • May 30, 2018

During Easter, Christians all over the world turn their thoughts to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. By going to the cross, Jesus demonstrated in a most unselfish way the truth of His words: “Greater love has no man than he lay down his life for his brother.” Although laying aside our own desires, needs and agendas is difficult and often painful, we can only victory in our lives by taking up our crosses daily and dying to ourselves. Many lost hope when Jesus lay in the tomb; their hopes for victory over their enemies and a new way […]

Does God…?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 22, 2018

Does God… settle for 2nd best? give up pursuing? cease loving? finish forgiving? stop believing a heart will change for good? faint in the face of rejection? tire from doing good? give up on any of His? stop believing the best? retreat in battle? wrestle with the flesh? feel sorry for Himself? back off from His promises? withhold Himself from others? Well, then neither will I. I Want I want God to be all that I’m missing. I want to love without reservation. I want to be reined in by Him. I want a Parent’s heart: wise in word, diligent […]

One definition of perseverance is given as “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure or opposition.” Another describes it as “to finish what you start regardless of the obstacles that stand in the way.” Yet another definition states that perseverance is “not giving up.” Covenant Keeper standers are often viewed as being on display for everyone to watch and pass judgement on the quality of their perseverance. As leaders in the ministry effort we often feel that we are being watched and judged for our level of perseverance, too. Each of us could give examples of the […]

New Year Encouragement

I remember every year on New Year’s Eve wondering if the new year would bring marriage restoration to our family. Would Rex ever change? Is next year the one where God would grab his heart and turn it around toward Him and make him see me as a changed woman? Why? Why, God, is this taking so long? Does this sound familiar? If it does let me share with you a few things I learned while traversing the restoration path: It’s not about you, your spouse or your marriage. It is about God’s image on earth. You see, God was […]

His Love

Can you imagine? The magnitude of love that the Father had for His children is overwhelming when you try to wrap your mind around it. His son – His only son would have to be sacrificed in order to restore relationship with His beloved children, the Jewish Nation. But relationship is important to the Father. He wanted His children to realize that this babe in the manger was His way of redeeming that relationship. He had sent them many signs of the appearing of this Child. But because they wanted an earthly kingdom they missed the signs. After all, how […]

Ten Recovery Steps after Being Misjudged

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 22, 2017

You’ve been there. Your intentions were misread. You meant one thing and someone inserted their own interpretation of your motives. The sting is all you can see for the moment. What are the steps to take when something as damaging as this hits you broadside? Acknowledge the sting. The wound. The hurt. Especially if the person is close to you. Minimizing the pain just sends it underground to surface in a different form to be dealt with another day. It’s going to hit you sooner or later; this way you get to pick the position you are in when it […]

Marriage According To God’s Plan…

  • December 11, 2017

(In response to an article from a popular Christian magazine regarding the church’s role in divorce recovery). I have been divorced for five years after a beautiful 43 year marriage. My husband is a spirit-filled, talented Christian musician who was allured and enticed away by the enemy. I agree that this is definitely one of the most painful situations a person can experience. The first six months after my divorce I spent every moment possible seeking the Lord and His plan for my life. The Lord is incredibly faithful. I knew that I knew that I was to stand for the […]

Speaking Truth in Love

Ephesians 4:14-16 (ESV)  “So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” In Matthew Henry’s commentary of the Bible, he says, […]

Proverbs for Those Standing on God’s Promises Ephesians 6:14

  • November 27, 2017

Want to know something interesting? Standing for a righteous thing has the same elements regardless of what that thing is. I’m glad we have a one-size-fits-all-God for all of our needs. These are my proverbs, what are yours? God’s timing is the most overlooked part of a miracle. Coincidence is just God doing two things at once. You’ll never have a better opportunity to know God, than in an extended trial. God steps in when it is only Him-possible. There is no better place to be than in the center lane of God’s will – regardless of the situation. You […]

In the USA we celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday this week. An Act of Congress in 1941 established Thanksgiving as a national holiday to be celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November each year. It is an interesting read for anyone interested in history to search for the origins and traditions of “Thanksgiving.” “Days of thanksgiving and prayer” is a generic description of events celebrated around the world at various times of the year. Tradition and history say that in the USA our first Thanksgiving was in the fall of 1621 when the Pilgrims who had landed at Plymouth were celebrating […]
