“Ouch, Hallelujah!” is a good statement to make when convicted by Holy Spirit. I don’t enjoy it, but I love the benefits reaped from being obedient when it occurs. The key is to respond quickly and decisively. My husband has been visiting me on a regular basis for a while. I always look forward to his visits and often prepare dinner for us to share. On one such visit not too long ago, I almost missed an opportunity to see God move. I expected a long visit, so I was surprised when I received a text from my husband saying […]

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 […]

Pebbles From God

1 We are so valuable, that Jesus would be willing to have nails driven through His hands in order to open a doorway to the Father. 2 We should always expose control and manipulation, in us and in others. They become idols that turn on their masters. 3 To turn your feelings or thoughts from being down-under to up-over, simply redirect your focus from the facts of the moment to the caring Savior who spans eternity. 4 Don’t overlook the little. Every tiny step toward God means a stronger foothold out of the darkness. 5 Learn the value of putting […]

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 […]

What a revelation! I used to hide my life-scars in shame because they were so hideous. How about being divorced by my wife, the rejection I felt, how it hurt my wonderful wife and my children? What about the ugly pride I had struggling with self-esteem? What about a mind weakened by pornography? What about a lifestyle riddled with compromise? What about a little scared kid’s heart that wanted to run from reality? What about feelings I protected from pain so much, they became my idol? The scars these left behind are so repulsive to the world. POW! You know, […]

  • February 7, 2018

  An untried mind will not know what it can overcome. Persistence, patience and perseverance are required to know the footprint of character. Trials show us where we are, in the hands of chance or in the arms of Heaven Trials are not over when the troubles no longer exist, but when their lessons are no longer needed. Don’t brace against their inevitable force.  Allow God to do His Jesus judo and use its weight against itself. Trials are only look big in comparison to us, not God. Look at the magnificence of God from heavens position and the trial […]

One definition of perseverance is given as “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure or opposition.” Another describes it as “to finish what you start regardless of the obstacles that stand in the way.” Yet another definition states that perseverance is “not giving up.” Covenant Keeper standers are often viewed as being on display for everyone to watch and pass judgement on the quality of their perseverance. As leaders in the ministry effort we often feel that we are being watched and judged for our level of perseverance, too. Each of us could give examples of the […]

HOW IS THE WILL INVOLVED IN OUR SPEECH? You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

Joshua 1:8 You have […]

Luke 6:35-37 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. A believer who runs from God and lives sinfully for a season may say he/she is being “judged” or looked down upon by other […]
