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 […]

Even If…

In 1 Peter 5:6-11(ESV), the Bible states: Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, […]

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 […]

Have a Steadfast Mind on God’s Word

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; […]

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 […]

Covenant Keeping 201 – The Problem With Our Tongue

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 5, 2019

Last month I talked about how to tell if you really have forgiven. I pointed out that all you have to do is listen to what comes out of your month. Even though you may never forget what happened to you in the past, that has nothing to do with forgiveness. If you are still talking about a specific incident, you have not forgiven. Today, let’s talk about the tongue. Psalm 34:11-13 says, “Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Who is the man who […]

That Troublesome Sword

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 15, 2019

That pesky sword! Every time I turn around it is swinging out and hitting something while strapped to my waist! And have you ever tried to get into or out of a car with a sword harnessed to you? You have to be extra careful to not go too fast walking around corners lest it swings out and catches something! I think I do pretty well with the rest of the outfit. After all you need something to hold up your pants so why not a belt of truth? Wearing a breastplate is a bit unusual for this time period […]

Covenant Keeping – 101

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 2, 2019

I firmly believe this is the most important article I have ever written. My life has been changed by writing it and I know your life can also be changed if you will listen and read carefully. I have prayed and asked the Lord what He wants for CKs in 2019 and believe He has stated we need to go back to basics. Some of you have not been with us long enough to have been taught the basics. Some of you have been around so long that you have forgotten or are now overlooking the basics, so I believe […]
