That Troublesome Sword

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

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 […]

When You Don’t Know What to Pray

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 8, 2019

Have you ever been so burdened by a problem that you say “I just don’t even know what to pray?” When the circumstances of life seem too big or complex to comprehend, shift your focus to who God is by praying God’s character. For every circumstance I believe and proclaim… God is sovereign. All authority and all power is His. Matthew 28:18. Nothing takes Him by surprise. All circumstances serve Him. God knows the end from the beginning. Psalms 119:91, Isa 46:9-10. His word is forever settled in heaven. Psalms 119:89. God does all things for our good and His […]

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 […]

Look What God Is Doing

USA  CA: Praising God for the joy with which He continues to fill my heart. I am so grateful for all the wonderful people in my life. Last week I went with some friends to watch a play about C.S. Lewis and enjoyed having that time with faith-filled women who understand and support my stand. Also, this weekend I completed a Tough Mudder event with my son and friends. We had such a good time! Through the training for that event, God showed me that, even when I feel that I’ve reached my limit, I can push myself further. I’ve […]

Christmas Tidings of Great Joy  

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 18, 2018

Why do we celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th? Is it because we have always done it that way? Why is there a Santa Claus if we are celebrating Jesus’ birth? Why have a Christmas tree? And what’s with the sleigh and reindeer? Do you ever wonder about those things? Is the whole thing a celebration of pagan rituals captured by commercial interests in the last couple of centuries to generate revenue for greedy retailers? Sometimes I wonder about that one. The truth is that we do not know the exact date of Jesus’ birth. Before you accuse […]

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 […]
