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 […]

I Am Standing for the Healing of Our Marriage 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 13, 2018

Sponsored by The King’s Gardeners Ministries, Spokane Valley, Washington I am standing for the healing of our marriage. I have been ridiculed for my stand by some who claim to be spiritually related to me and have been told that some of the members of my church think I am absolutely crazy. My reply to their criticism is, “They thought Noah was crazy for 120 years, but he floated and the critics drowned!” God hates divorce and we are to hate what God hates. He even hates separation. Separation and divorce are accepted by a society built on the devil’s […]

What Can I Do When My Spouse Is In Adultery?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 30, 2018

Handling the Hurt There is no denying that adultery brings an incredible amount of pain and hurt when it enters a marriage. This pain may manifest in many ways; rejection, anger, feelings of failure and worthlessness, frustration, helplessness, confusion, depression, suicidal thoughts, vengeful attitudes, shame, neediness, dependencies and the list goes on. As humans who have been created to feel and express emotions, we can’t deny or ignore their reality. At the same time, we cannot let them control us, for many of them are destructive if left unchecked. We must learn to deal honestly with our emotions. In the […]

A Lighthouse Standing Firm

  • October 9, 2018

Hi, prayer warriors, As we join hands and hearts together, linking shields, I want to share a breakthrough moment I had yesterday. For almost a year I have been struggling with negative chatter from the enemy, climbing my mountain with what felt like cement block shoes but forging forward and persevering in faith. I know by faith that God hears us, loves our loved ones more than we can imagine and will bless what He has promised in His time. But I have felt like there is a big wall of separation keeping my heart from believing what my head […]

Living

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 27, 2018

This is more than just mere existence. It is taking what you have and learning how to make the most of it. It is breathing in what is around you and appreciating every minute of it. Living is seeing its Author and knowing all things work together for good to them who love Him. Living is having both ups and downs and knowing each are two sides of the same coin. Each has their purpose in developing character. Living can take what the world calls dirt and turn it into the potting soil of faith for greater things. It is […]
