  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 […]

“Would you hang on a cross to save a soul? Jesus did! PAID IN FULL”

Isn’t this cross with its message amazing? Take a minute to think about it. Let me tell you my neighbor’s story behind this cross that he erected as I watched from across the road. When I took the first pictures and sent them to my kids, I said I feel like having “church” right there at the foot of the cross. My daughter replied that that would be great! My neighbor had shared with me that nine years ago he was not saved and was, in fact, living with a woman after being married two times before this relationship (They […]

Pebbles From God

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • June 25, 2018

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 […]

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

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 […]

With your life? Through thick and then? Til’ death do you part? Are you willing to run after the One who loves you as much as He does His own Son? Are you willing to live in all the fruits of the Spirit including long-suffering? Are you willing to receive all God has for you? To enjoy the blessing as well as overcome the testing? Are you willing to say ‘I do’ to His request in obedience of integrity? Are you willing to love God more and your feelings less? Are you willing to trust faith over facts? God over […]

As I was reviewing some old material I came across the following article written a few years ago. Some of you may remember it. I confess I wrote it in a light-hearted and joking manner – but as I reflected on it I realized that the “issues” outlined in the development of a “Stander’s App” are with us today as much as when the article first appeared. I hope reading or re-reading it brings you both a smile and some thoughtful introspection. Soon to be available for your iPhone or Android device – The Stander’s App!!! Why not? It seems […]

Mother’s Day Thought on “Mini-Me”

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 12, 2018

This blog post has been stirring in my heart for some time – both because of personal conviction and cultural pervasiveness. What is it that has been stirring?? It’s the “mini-me” culture that has invaded mother-daughter relationships. I’ve seen it in clothing catalogs and social media. And I’ve beamed inwardly and outwardly when hearing others refer to our daughter being my “mini-me.” This beaming, however, ended with the Lord’s conviction and the vision of something greater. At the root of my conviction was selfishness and a flattery-hunger that begged the question, “Do I really want her to be just like […]

USA  CA: “Praising God for His continued faithfulness and for providing me with peace and calm in the midst of a crazy, overwhelming schedule. Our son has made the baseball team at school and this has caused some challenges for my 60+ hour-a-week work schedule, but God is faithful. He has brought wonderful, helpful people into my life that are helping with transportation.” CT: CK reports that she had a good visit with her sister in Florida. As it turned out her flight home was delayed so she spent additional time there and it went very well. She also reported […]

Endurance

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

Recently I have been writing on topics such as perseverance, opposition and vigilance. My thoughts this time have turned to endurance. According to one dictionary the definition of endurance is “the fact or power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way.” As I read that I was reminded of my days of U S Marine Corps boot camp and the physical and mental endurance it took to survive a few weeks of that program. The Merriam Webster dictionary definition of endurance is “the ability to withstand hardship or adversity; especially: the ability to sustain a […]
