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 […]

New Smartphone App

As I was reviewing some old material I came across the following article written a few years ago. Some of you may remember it. I confess I wrote it in a light-hearted and joking manner – but as I reflected on it I realized that the “issues” outlined in the development of a “Stander’s App” are with us today as much as when the article first appeared. I hope reading or re-reading it brings you both a smile and some thoughtful introspection. Soon to be available for your iPhone or Android device – The Stander’s App!!! Why not? It seems […]

Series 2 – Will I Stop Hurting…Continued

Participation Brings Healing It is important to be faithful in attendance and to participate actively in the ministry of your church. The writer of Hebrews leaves no doubt as to the importance of other believers and commands us not to stop assembling with them, even as he admonishes that some have. “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25 Be an active and faithful […]

Why Falling Out of Love Never Justifies Divorce

I recently read a transcript of a radio broadcast from John Piper, founder and teacher of desiringGod.com. This transcript should pull on the heart-strings of every Covenant Keeper and keep one on the straight and narrow path of keeping covenant. The entire transcript can be found on John Piper’s website at this address: https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/why-falling-out-of-love-never-justifies-divorce.

Standing in the Gap

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

We are called to intercede and stand in the gap for our spouses, our children and grandchildren. If we don’t stand in the gap, who will? We have authority in the spiritual world because we are joined by covenant and one flesh to our spouses and in the case of children, by blood. These people are our appointed mission fields for this time in our lives. Sure, it is hard and we are often tempted to give up. But if we give up who else will stand for them? It is probably our most difficult mission in life, but it […]

LET’S GO THE DISTANCE! 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 31, 2016

(Originally published May 2007) Over the years I have discovered that basically, covenant keepers go through five stages of growth. In fact, because of the importance of these stages I even wrote a book about them, Separation and Divorce…A Journey in Growth and Development. We begin our journey of faith with fresh vision and a determination to go the distance – we will not faint and give up our stands, no matter how long it takes! However, we are usually so intent and focused upon doing everything we can to see our marriages healed, that without realizing it, we make […]

Running Attire for Those In-Process

These are some observations of lessons learned by those traveling through broken relationships. “Traveling through” meaning they are on their way, not back to the old or even an improved version of the old relationship, but to a new covenant relationship God intended for them to enjoy to begin with. This collection may have meaning to others ‘in transition” as they fulfill God’s will. Fear gains power when it is in the dark. When we face the fear for what it is, and illuminate it in God’s light, fear’s control over us begins to dissolve. Don’t be quick to fix […]

Have You Not Known? Have You Not Heard?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • March 14, 2016

The most often asked question from people turning to this ministry for help is “Why did this happen to me?” Often asked explicitly, but more often implied, is why God would allow these circumstances to happen. “Why, God?” Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord does not think in the same manner as you and I think. As God’s Word says in Isaiah 55: (ESV) 8For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your […]

Rend the Heavens

In a world that appears at times to be spinning out of control, only to halt briefly for the purpose of throwing us off, it is encouraging to realize that this is just an illusion. Perception is one of those things that changes with time and wisdom. I have gotten old enough to hear the words every parent longs to hear; “Dad, you weren’t as lame as I thought you were. I have grown to appreciate what you were trying to tell me.” The world is using smoke and mirrors against the Body of Christ in the hope of compromising […]

Act Worthy of Yourself

We received an email message from Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council. He stated: “Dr. Joseph Warren, spoken on March 6, 1775: ‘Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful, but we have many friends, determined to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution… On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.’ Dr. Joseph Warren acted worthy of himself. He was killed by a musket shot […]
