Marriage According To God’s Plan…

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 11, 2017

(In response to an article from a popular Christian magazine regarding the church’s role in divorce recovery). I have been divorced for five years after a beautiful 43 year marriage. My husband is a spirit-filled, talented Christian musician who was allured and enticed away by the enemy. I agree that this is definitely one of the most painful situations a person can experience. The first six months after my divorce I spent every moment possible seeking the Lord and His plan for my life. The Lord is incredibly faithful. I knew that I knew that I was to stand for the […]

Proverbs for Those Standing on God’s Promises Ephesians 6:14

Want to know something interesting? Standing for a righteous thing has the same elements regardless of what that thing is. I’m glad we have a one-size-fits-all-God for all of our needs. These are my proverbs, what are yours? God’s timing is the most overlooked part of a miracle. Coincidence is just God doing two things at once. You’ll never have a better opportunity to know God, than in an extended trial. God steps in when it is only Him-possible. There is no better place to be than in the center lane of God’s will – regardless of the situation. You […]

Give Thanks

  • November 24, 2017

In the USA we celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday this week. An Act of Congress in 1941 established Thanksgiving as a national holiday to be celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November each year. It is an interesting read for anyone interested in history to search for the origins and traditions of “Thanksgiving.” “Days of thanksgiving and prayer” is a generic description of events celebrated around the world at various times of the year. Tradition and history say that in the USA our first Thanksgiving was in the fall of 1621 when the Pilgrims who had landed at Plymouth were celebrating […]

Watch and See What I Will Do

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

“I have called you, and anointed you, and asked you to fulfill your vows, which is no more than what you vowed on your wedding day. So many treat their vows as just words and treat as common what I have called Holy Matrimony. I am raising up My standard of Holy Matrimony in Covenant Keepers as a trophy to the world. To see My Word fulfilled comes with great sacrifice, living without your spouse and all that it entails, new families being raised in your place. I see it all and will use it all for My glory. Watch […]

How to Survive the Hurricane of Divorce

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 2, 2017

With all the major hurricanes experienced in America this last month I noticed something about the surviving trees. They looked really beat up but they were still standing upright.  And even though most of their leaves had been stripped away by the wind they were still alive. These trees bear a resemblance to covenant keepers. So I did a little research on trees that survive hurricanes. Here are a few points: Well pruned trees survive hurricanes better than unpruned or poorly pruned trees. The pruning process is a painful process but necessary in our Christian life if we are to […]

The Ten Commitments

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • September 25, 2017

Sounds like a major theater production, doesn’t it? As we get more focused in our walk with the Lord, we discover that the covenants of God were not made lightly. They were forever promises. Some had conditions, some not. But they were irreversible when they were made. They were a statement of God’s heart toward mankind. They were a display of His integrity. We ought to all establish our own personal set of Ten Commandments for ourselves. They would be our Ten Commitments with which we judge ourselves. That we might grow closer to our Lord. It’s one thing to […]

Six Stages or Steps of Reconciliation

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 14, 2017

It is important to understand the difference between reconciliation and restoration. Reconciliation has as its goals friendship and cordiality. Restoration’s goal is to rebuild better than before. The six stages of reconciliation are as follows: FIRST, be honest with yourself and your spouse. In any demise there is always blame to be taken. No one is without both fault and responsibility. It may be time for you to wake up and see that your reactions were not as saintly as you believed them to be. Do not project blame or condemnation but rather approach your spouse with the understanding that […]

Enduring

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • July 24, 2017

Enduring is not a skill we readily run to. For it pushes us out of our familiar zone. Yet enduring is a necessary ingredient to complete our faith. It takes a holy promise and hangs on 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 its source is mere human, it can only do what great humans can do. If it is powered by God Himself, […]

Your spouse is deceived, and deception is a tool of the enemy. That same enemy (Satan, not the other person) […]

Dear Carolyn, I thought you did a great job Monday night with our CK group. We were so happy to have you and hope you can join our online CK meeting again. I know you were speaking to me while you were talking about what you had to go through when your needs for your family were so great, and to see your children hurting, too. Mine were grown and living away at college when we separated. Our youngest came back home to live with me after doing part of her education in Raleigh. Our son came back also to […]
