Reconciliation – the First Goal of Restoration

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

“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 […]

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 […]

Should I Use Tough Love With My Spouse?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 28, 2018

One fairly common truth that experience has proven over and over is that “tough love” usually bears rotten fruit! The model for our behavior should always be Jesus. How does He treat us when we are rebellious, willful, stubborn, uncaring, inconsiderate, uncooperative and unfaithful? He responds by loving us unconditionally, and forgiving every sin. He is faithful to us even when we are unfaithful!  He showed His love by laying down His life for us. Tough love usually includes giving ultimatums, which result with a person calling the bluff and escalating their negative behavior. A definition for an ultimatum could […]

Be Hospitable To One Another Without Complaint

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 7, 2018

A few years ago my pastor preached a series of stories from the Old Testament and the New Testament on the gift of hospitality. It truly was a blessing to review those true stories of old. Then the pastor asked a few people to share their personal story of ministering this gift in either their homes or elsewhere. I resisted sharing the story that came to mind quickly because it was a difficult one, BUT GOD (!) kept nudging me until I agreed. After all of our stories were shared from the pulpit, a man in the congregation said he […]

We Can Rebuild Our Marriage If We Put God At The Center

Prayers get answered. Don’t let anyone or anything make you think otherwise. Never ever doubt that your prayers are being heard and that our God is working for those who love Him. I have prayed for general changes in my marriage but the specific prayers are the ones I have found are the ones God answered. I have prayed for God to work in me. Those prayers started in November of 2010 right after my wife and I separated. I knew “we” had problems, issues, etc., but I also found that I alone could not change the problems “we” had […]

  CURACAO (Included with online donation) Acts 26:25 says, But Paul replied, “I am not insane, most excellent Festus. I speak words of sober truth.” I believe that this is the way the world sees us as standers and even our families BUT we continue to speak and believe words of sober truth.   USA CA: (Referring to monthly Thank You donation letter) Very interesting, Carolyn.

“Would you hang on a cross to save a soul? Jesus did! PAID IN FULL”

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • July 9, 2018

Isn’t this cross with its message amazing? Take a minute to think about it. Let me tell you my neighbor’s story behind this cross that he erected as I watched from across the road. When I took the first pictures and sent them to my kids, I said I feel like having “church” right there at the foot of the cross. My daughter replied that that would be great! My neighbor had shared with me that nine years ago he was not saved and was, in fact, living with a woman after being married two times before this relationship (They […]
