God’s Point of View

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 11, 2018

One day I was reading in Mark, chapter nine, where Jesus rebuked Peter. The words He spoke to Peter really jumped off the page of my Living Bible! “Satan, get behind me! You are looking at this only from a human point of view and not from God’s.” Jesus had just shared with the disciples about the terrible things He must suffer, and that He would be rejected by the elders and the Chief Priests and the other Jewish leaders. He would be killed, and He would rise again three days afterwards. He talked about it quite frankly with them so […]

Chosen to Display God’s Redemption Story

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

Each CK’s story is unique, but there are often similarities woven through each one when shared. While keeping covenant with our spouses, each of us has suffered loss, struggled with God’s timing as we’ve waited for our prayers to be answered, and dealt with thoughts of betrayal. We continually need to be reminded that Jesus sees our pain and is doing something to help us in all those areas. Our stories of loss and heartache may be different on the outside, but the grieving and wrestling with “a marriage that is no longer” often have a similar storyline from one […]

Thanksgiving and Praise – an Offensive Weapon

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 22, 2018

I’ve been thinking about all the things each of us has for which we should be thankful. It is always amazing to me that, when a group of people is asked why they are thankful, the room fills with silence. May this never happen to our CKI family! There are hundreds of reasons why each of us should continually be in a posture to give our Jesus praise. Even if you do not have a thankful heart, you can choose to rejoice in all that Jesus has done for you. Think of praise as an offensive weapon that should be […]

Who am I, Lord? 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 20, 2018

A relevant topic warrants repeating, so this month we are revisiting a topic from some years ago. Most mornings in the growing season you will find me outside shortly after dawn watering my garden veggies and flowers, then sitting on the back patio to read a daily Bible reading and to “contemplate life.” For several days this past season, the question “Who am I, Lord?” was persistently on my mind. I have learned that when thoughts are persistent I should pay attention. It could be something I need to address in my own relationship with the Lord or with Carolyn. […]

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 […]

My heart feels a whole lot better and my spirit is much stronger. I can face what I still need to face. Thank you so much. I just want to […]
