The Door… Shut and Locked

It is quite normal for a Covenant Keeper to experience being with their spouse’s family for various reasons. Family members get sick and a hospital visit is the right thing to do. Children have birthdays and graduations from high school and college with a family gathering to celebrate an accomplishment. A family member dies and there is a funeral to attend. There will be reasons why you, your spouse and your spouse’s family will be together and many times this gathering happens in a small space making it impossible to ignore anyone. Often your spouse will be there with the […]

Freedom from Your Past

Below is a message we are using with permission from Jimmy Evans at MarriageToday. The message can be applied to many situations CKs find in their lives today. Pray and ask Jesus if this relates to your life. “Karen and I have wonderful parents and in-laws, but let’s face it: No parent is perfect. The imperfect parenting individuals experience while growing up leads to baggage that can harm our marriages. “The two most prominent types of baggage are iniquities and inner vows. “Iniquities. Exodus 34:7 tells of how God inflicts “the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to […]

The Value of Keeping Covenant

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

There’s a particular moment I will never forget. My husband and I were stationed with the Navy in San Diego and we attended a chapel service where we heard a missionary family sing, “Whatever it takes to draw closer to you, Lord; that’s what I’ll be willing to do.” That song struck my heart and dug deep into my soul as I sang along in my heart. In the years that followed my beloved and I followed the Lord and our commitment to Christ as best we knew how. We enjoyed a good, happy life, even though there were many […]

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 […]

Peace

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 1, 2018

What an elusive thing. Everybody wants it, but few understand or want to do what it takes to receive it. Peace is more than rest. It is subjecting everything to the will of God. It is allowing the Holy Spirit to strain every self-flesh thing out of us. It relinquishes its grip on the things of this world. Peace is always on the move. From one side of our character to the other, exposing that which corrupts the soul. Peace is an infusion of God’s grace to do what increases life in spite of a trial. Peace is the container […]

Overcoming Evil with Love “You have heard that it has been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, that you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue you at the law, and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two. Give to him that asks you, and from him that would borrow of you turn not away. You […]

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 […]
