Hope – Part 2

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 12, 2019

This is the second installment from the book Hope by Marilyn Conrad   HOPE OR DEFEAT? Life can be tough and painful. God did not promise that we would never have challenges or difficult times to go through. When these times come we find out what is on the inside of us. Do we choose to grow better or get bitter? Do we choose to speak the Word over our situations or let our situations overcome us? Do we choose to believe what God says or do we believe the lies of the enemy of our souls? Do we choose […]

Obedience Is Greater Than Sacrifice

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

“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 […]

Christmas While Waiting For Restoration

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 […]

   USA CA: CK is praising God for the wonderful trip taken to Yellowstone. “I felt God’s presence in the beautiful scenery and had a wonderful time with the kids. Yellowstone truly is breathtaking and I am thankful for the prayers that helped get me there and back safely and without any issues. My husband was in contact with me via text the entire trip there. He expressed concern for our safety and wished us a good trip. I’m still standing.” CK is praising God for a wonderful weekend with her family. “They came to visit from L.A. and it […]

Scripture Prayers For Covenant Keepers

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 11, 2018

Proverbs 18:21 states that there is life and death in the power of the tongue. The tongue can be used for good or evil. We can speak about our bad circumstances or we can speak God’s Word over the circumstances. We encourage speaking God’s Word out loud daily. By speaking God’s Word the mind will be renewed, the spirit man will be strengthened and faith will grow. “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 KJV) In the beginning as we speak God’s Word over our families and homes we may feel like we’re being […]

The Benefits of a Long Term Stand

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 11, 2018

I want to encourage you in your stand for your marriage, especially those who feel that it has been too long, that it’s never going to happen, that I am still hurting (all lies of the enemy which can lull us into a state of passivity and complacency making us inert and inactive and even, for some, wanting to give up). You need to realize that the long term stand can be a place where much growth and maturity can come when we allow the Lord to work in us first. During World War II several countries chose to remain […]

Be Hospitable To One Another Without Complaint

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 7, 2018

A few years ago my pastor preached a series of stories from the Old Testament and the New Testament on the gift of hospitality. It truly was a blessing to review those true stories of old. Then the pastor asked a few people to share their personal story of ministering this gift in either their homes or elsewhere. I resisted sharing the story that came to mind quickly because it was a difficult one, BUT GOD (!) kept nudging me until I agreed. After all of our stories were shared from the pulpit, a man in the congregation said he […]

We Can Rebuild Our Marriage If We Put God At The Center

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • July 14, 2018

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 […]

  CURACAO (Included with online donation) Acts 26:25 says, But Paul replied, “I am not insane, most excellent Festus. I speak words of sober truth.” I believe that this is the way the world sees us as standers and even our families BUT we continue to speak and believe words of sober truth.   USA CA: (Referring to monthly Thank You donation letter) Very interesting, Carolyn. Thanks so much. I am so blessed by the things you share. I surely am praying for the conference. I just know it will be successful as every time I have been there I am […]

Before I Formed You…I Know the Plans I Have For You

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • June 19, 2018

I have once again been reading in Jeremiah and remembered that I had written on the topics of God knowing us before we are born and having definite plans for us. I remain in awe of the prophets of old that were called of God to bring His messages to the kings and peoples of Old Testament times. So today I am “recycling” an older article with additional comments. Jeremiah was one of those who were called by God. Jeremiah felt inadequate for the job. He was too young and he knew nothing about public speaking or how to approach […]
