Now What Lord? – Part 2

When I came home from the doctor visit where my pregnancy was confirmed, my husband did not share my joy. The devil had stolen his joy. I couldn’t believe it! I also started noticing that my husband was paying special attention to our very young and single secretary. We hired her right out of high school and encouraged her to go to church with us. We wanted her to join the youth group but she said she wasn’t ready for that. Now I was seeing that Satan had set a trap for the two of them. The following year and […]

Now What Lord?

Jesus, thank you so much for the great report at the cardiologist’s office today! My doctor said that my new heart valve is doing just fine, and, because of it, my other valves are functioning better than before my surgery in October! Lord, You have made me so happy and relieved. Jesus and I have an ongoing conversation almost continually every day. Even when I am not happy and relieved like when I am upset or disappointed, I may say, “Now why did You let that happen? Or why didn’t You do something different? If I were God, I would […]

Her Children Bless and Respect Her

Guest Article reprinted from August 2007 newsletter:   A little over three years ago my husband started living with the other woman. When I advised him that I wasn’t at peace with our children staying overnight in that set-up he responded by applying for custody of two of our sons. After much prayer and soul searching I felt I was not to contest his application but to allow the boys to go and live with him. It was heartbreaking to know that my precious children would be living in that environment. Devastating though that decision was, I felt God saying […]

Reconciliation (Part 2) – Dealing With Strife by Destroying Offenses

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • March 21, 2019

Wisdom pales and understanding fades in the light of strife For fifteen years my marriage could be categorized as blessed and strife free. But then I allowed myself to become offended at my wife. The result was two years of strife, separation, and abandonment. Fifteen years of blessed communication were not even a memory in the heat of my offense. I had built a wall unknowingly that would almost claim the lives of both my wife and me through suicide. What happened? Why was I so helpless to overcome the hurts of strife? You will never grow spiritually beyond your […]

Reconciliation – the First Goal of Restoration

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • March 19, 2019

“I was so angry at God that I did just the opposite of anything that had to do with God.” In his own words, this man was deceived. His wife, who was left behind with their children, was struggling with depression and a spirit of suicide. But God had other plans for this family and He sent help for her as she cried out to Him in her despair. She eventually led a Covenant Keepers group where she was able to encourage others who were hurting as she had in the beginning. In the meantime, God was watching over this […]

Dear CK Friends, I’m writing you so that you do not to lose heart and to encourage you to rest in Yeshua and be confident in our Father in heaven. I have stopped counting the years that my husband left…a long time ago. I have peace because I know it is the will of God that I remain faithful to my husband in the good and in the bad times. God has shown me that I was very wrong in my mindset, in how I saw the world, and in how I acted. It hasn’t been easy. Yes, I cried; […]

This is an article previously written by Marilyn in 2001. Perhaps you had a dream to do something for God and you put time, effort and prayer into the project and it failed. Perhaps your relationships never seem to endure. They are short-lived both loved ones and friends. Something always happens to hinder your relationships such as strife or disappoint. Maybe you seem to labor under unstable living conditions. You sow much time and energy into jobs or other financial projects and they never seem to work out. Many others have lost job after job and your living conditions are terrible. […]

ENJOYING THE JOURNEY, Part 2

LORD, CHANGE ME IN THE WAIT As you grow in faith and begin to become more Christ like, you will be walking in His peace and love…exactly what our beloved spouses are searching for in the world. The Bible says that the things of this world do not satisfy. Philippians 4:4-8 says, “Rejoice and again I say rejoice. In everything through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your request unto Me and the peace that passes all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.” Choose to think on those things that are just and pure and […]

I would like to share some of the things I have learned on my Covenant Keeping journey… WHEN I GOT THE BAD NEWS… During a meeting of the Smyrna, GA group, a gentleman started his story with, “When I got the bad news…,” at which time all in attendance broke into laughter because we, too, so well-remembered that moment in our lives! No one can possibly understand that devastation and mourning without experiencing it. We who have walked through it can recall, in great detail, the loss of our beloved spouse and all that the loss involved. The mourning seemed […]

This is the second installment from the book Hope by Marilyn Conrad   HOPE OR DEFEAT? Life can be tough and painful. God did not promise that we would never have challenges or difficult times to go through. When these times come we find out what is on the inside of us. Do we choose to grow better or get bitter? Do we choose to speak the Word over our situations or let our situations overcome us? Do we choose to believe what God says or do we believe the lies of the enemy of our souls? Do we choose […]
