Ephesians 4:14-16 (ESV)  “So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” In Matthew Henry’s commentary of the Bible, he says, […]

Dear Friend, We can feel your pain. We thank God that you were able to contact the CKI ministry. We are a family and you can be sure that we are praying for you and for your spouse. You shared the following: “I am feeling empty, hurt, humiliated and angry. I just want to leave everything behind and go somewhere and start all over. Why do I have to pray for my husband who did all those things to me? He is enjoying life while I am the one suffering. If God does hate divorce why did He allow this to […]

Father, I ask Your favor on a people who want Your will to flow through their lives. Build us up in Your way, Your timing and Your strength. Our hearts long for the restoration of a covenant marriage that has its origin in Your presence. The “I do” was to a loving spouse and an even more loving God. Lord, we ask Your staying power to grow us into the spouses You always intended us to be. Mercy-giving, harder-caring, ever-loving, totally-tuned to Your prompting. Help us to surrender the idols of our past hurts, our current circumstances and our future worries […]

Love

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 22, 2017

Love doesn’t want you to change; it just wants you to choose to change. Love allows another to be them self. It’s care-ing them through the tough and difficult time. Love sticks closer than a brother. It stands at the doorstep of input and asks for an invitation. Love honors integrity and commitment. It sees value in the eternal over the temporal; in the internal more than the exterior. Love puts feelings in their place; underfoot of what’s honorable. Love sees itself as a friend to those who wouldn’t befriend themselves. It outlasts what would cause it to quit.  Love […]

Reconciliation

  • August 22, 2016

These are notes from a 2004 testimony of a restored couple. The husband was a prodigal preacher and the wife was a faithful stander. They both stood in front of the congregation which he pastored and he repented individually and corporately before them. The wife stressed that the more she learned about covenant the more she knew there was no other option but to stand. At the end, their three daughters were right there with them. The church corporately said, “I forgive you.” As a member of the congregation put it, “It’s like seeing a feeding the 5000 miracle right […]

I had been working for a company that went bankrupt, but not before the Lord directed me to quit just days before it happened. I was the only one who got my back pay! As God would have it I turned on the radio to Charles Stanley as I was driving to work for the last time. He was in mid-sentence saying, “Even Jesus knew when to leave…” Ha! I applied for a position at an agency. The owner said since I did not have a computer she did not see that there would be a position for me. A […]

A “Will Do” God

Do you remember when you were a child and your earthly father promised to do something or take you somewhere, but for some reason he couldn’t do it or he didn’t do it? You would say, “But you promised!” Well, we have a heavenly Father who promised and WILL DO. We can go to Him and say, “You promised that those who fear the commandment of the Lord will be rewarded. You promised that he who walks with wise men will be wise. You promised that a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of […]

Ten Recovery Steps After Being Misjudged

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 26, 2015

You’ve been there. Your intentions were misread. You meant one thing and someone inserted their own interpretation of your motives. The sting is all you can see for the moment. What are the steps to take when something as damaging as this hits you broadside? Acknowledge the sting. The wound. The hurt. Especially if the person is close to you. Minimizing the pain just sends it underground to surface in a different form to be dealt with another day. It’s going to hit you sooner or later; this way you get to pick the position you are in when it hits. […]
