Now What Lord?

Jesus, thank you so much for the great report at the cardiologist’s office today! My doctor said that my new heart valve is doing just fine, and, because of it, my other valves are functioning better than before my surgery in October! Lord, You have made me so happy and relieved. Jesus and I have an ongoing conversation almost continually every day. Even when I am not happy and relieved like when I am upset or disappointed, I may say, “Now why did You let that happen? Or why didn’t You do something different? If I were God, I would […]

Enduring 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 26, 2019

Enduring is not a skill we readily run to for it pushes us out of our familiar zone. Yet, enduring is a necessary ingredient for the completion of our faith. It is the act of taking a holy promise and hanging on to it until it is fully baked. Enduring lasts longer than the challenge; it has a fight-to-the-death mentality. Enduring is measured by the value of its fulfillment, not the time and energy it takes to see it through. Enduring is fueled by its vision. If the source of enduring is mere human, it can only do what great […]

Don’t Sit While You Stand – The Journey

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

The Rescue Swiftly the paramedics lifted the lifeless body into the waiting ambulance. There was no time to lose. As the siren cranked to high volume and the vehicle lurched into action, skilled hands worked quickly, establishing an IV line, bandaging, monitoring. Perhaps it would all be in vain. The victim seemed drained of all life. Perhaps too much of her blood had been lost on that street where she was found. Undaunted, the paramedics continued their efforts. Slowly the victim opened her eyes. Although she could see and hear all that was going on around her, she felt numb […]

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 […]

Christmas While Waiting For Restoration

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

Christmas. It is that wonderful time of year when families celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a time of cheer, a time of blessing and a time of… Wait! Hold on a minute! If we are honest with our thoughts, it’s a time of remembrance. A time when we had our spouses in the same house and a sense of great love and anticipation as we watched our “I do” open the special present we spent hours picking just for them. The reality is that we may be feeling sad, that this year our spouse is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Look What God is Doing

    CURACAO    After a great “Families Are Forever” conference with the theme “From Now On,” we can surely say God did it again. It was great to see almost everyone from our group at the conference – stateside and international. We really enjoy being together. Let’s all stand firm in faith knowing that we are doing God’s will by being covenant keepers.    USA   CA: CK thanks God for His rich provision above and beyond, as she was able to refinance her home and now has more money to fix things at her home and even to make vacation […]

A Covenant Keeper Tradition Continues

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

Covenant Keepers will continue our annual tradition of taking Halloween back from Satan and making it a day of fasting and prayer for our nation, our homes, and our families. Yellow Ribbon Day is observed in and around the month of October and, instead of decorating with jack-o-lanterns, we tie yellow ribbons around trees, lampposts, or on doors as a symbol that the captives have been set free! It was in 1987 that we planned the first Yellow Ribbon Day. Marilyn Conrad had been in prayer about the idea and one evening she turned on the television to watch 700 […]
