Is God Asleep In Your Boat?

Is God Asleep In Your Boat? This is another blog that I am grabbing from my son-in-law Scott Toal, because it has so many covenant-keeping principles. The first paragraph is exactly how most CKIs think when they first begin their journey. It really doesn’t seem as if God is aware of what is happening in your life. Read this and think about how you would react to the situation that the disciples found themselves experiencing. I’m Sleeping! “Did it ever seem like when you were going through something very hard, very heavy, very scary, that God was asleep?  He was […]

Courage and Patience in Suffering

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • June 4, 2018

Don’t allow the title to cause you to stop reading. There is a battle to be fought. Prayer is the battlefield and the victory comes through faith. I declare over each covenant keeper that you have a spirit of a warrior deep inside. The devil is afraid of you because he recognizes the Holy Spirit within you. He has been defeated and he knows it. You will, however, be tested by him to see if you know this truth. Referencing a “warrior spirit,” Retired U.S Army Lt. General William “Jerry” Boykin speaking to military couples at the Billy Graham Training […]

Mother’s Day Thought on “Mini-Me”

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 12, 2018

This blog post has been stirring in my heart for some time – both because of personal conviction and cultural pervasiveness. What is it that has been stirring?? It’s the “mini-me” culture that has invaded mother-daughter relationships. I’ve seen it in clothing catalogs and social media. And I’ve beamed inwardly and outwardly when hearing others refer to our daughter being my “mini-me.” This beaming, however, ended with the Lord’s conviction and the vision of something greater. At the root of my conviction was selfishness and a flattery-hunger that begged the question, “Do I really want her to be just like […]

Becky Morrison is a friend of the Johnsons. Becky and her husband Tommy host a party every year at the end of the Families Are Forever conference at their home on Lake Wylie for all the Covenant Keepers who attend the conference. Becky recently did a devotional at the Lake Wylie Community Bible Study (CBS) about grace. This article is taken from her devotional and applicable to how every covenant keeper should live their life, especially in extending grace to their spouse. Today I feel like I am to share and talk to you all about grace. Not because I […]

75 Cents – Consider This

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 2, 2018

We just spent the evening with a couple who have a restored marriage. They brought along their two children – one who is about to graduate from high school and one in middle school. All evening long my mind kept wandering to what those children’s lives would look like if their parents had not decided to follow the Lord’s plan. My eyes kept watching as they played on their phones and had an enjoyable evening eating good food in the presence of both of their contented parents. The parent who was the covenant keeper made the comment they wished everyone […]

A Home-going To Be Remembered

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • March 5, 2018

Today as the news of Billy Graham’s home-going hit the air waves I began pondering the impact of one life on the world. What he meant to this world is almost inconceivable. He influenced some of the greatest leaders of the last 100 years. How can that be? In what manner was he different from us? What can I do to have just a small portion of this impact on today’s world? One of his quotes that could possibly play a big part in our lives as a covenant keeper is: “It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, God’s […]

This transcript should pull on the heart-strings of every Covenant Keeper and keep one on the straight and narrow path of keeping covenant.
