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

  • February 21, 2019

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 […]

ENJOYING THE JOURNEY – Part 1

  • February 19, 2019

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 […]

Hope – Part 2

  • February 12, 2019

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 […]

Hope – Part 1

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 7, 2019

The Lord has ministered to me that covenant keepers need encouragement, and He impressed upon me to share with you about hope. Since beginning to stand for our marriages, we have all had someone say to us, at one time or another, “Don’t get your hopes up,” or “You don’t get anything by hoping.” God’s Word encourages just the opposite; He wants us to get our hopes up. In fact, the Word puts prime importance on hope. Hope is the first step in marriage healing. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for.” Without hope, we have […]

Don’t Sit While You Stand – The Journey

  • January 31, 2019

The Rescue Swiftly the paramedics lifted the lifeless body into the waiting ambulance. There was no time to lose. As the siren cranked to high volume and the vehicle lurched into action, skilled hands worked quickly, establishing an IV line, bandaging, monitoring. Perhaps it would all be in vain. The victim seemed drained of all life. Perhaps too much of her blood had been lost on that street where she was found. Undaunted, the paramedics continued their efforts. Slowly the victim opened her eyes. Although she could see and hear all that was going on around her, she felt numb […]

Obedience Is Greater Than Sacrifice

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 29, 2019

“Ouch, Hallelujah!” is a good statement to make when convicted by Holy Spirit. I don’t enjoy it, but I love the benefits reaped from being obedient when it occurs. The key is to respond quickly and decisively. My husband has been visiting me on a regular basis for a while. I always look forward to his visits and often prepare dinner for us to share. On one such visit not too long ago, I almost missed an opportunity to see God move. I expected a long visit, so I was surprised when I received a text from my husband saying […]
