Covenant Keeping 301, Strife – A Profound Principle of Keeping Covenant

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 2, 2019

This is another in a series from the beginning of 2019 in which we are discussing major principles of keeping covenant.  The first two principles dealt with forgiveness and our tongue. My former pastor, Billy Joe Daugherty, wrote a small book titled Overcoming Strife – The AIDS Virus of the Spirit. Wow, the title alone will preach! Strife resides in our spirit, talks to our mind and comes out of our mouth. So it is a condition of our heart that reveals itself to others when it escapes through our mouth. Does this sound familiar? That was exactly the same […]

This is an article previously written by Marilyn in 2001. Perhaps you had a dream to do something for God and you put time, effort and prayer into the project and it failed. Perhaps your relationships never seem to endure. They are short-lived both loved ones and friends. Something always happens to hinder your relationships such as strife or disappoint. Maybe you seem to labor under unstable living conditions. You sow much time and energy into jobs or other financial projects and they never seem to work out. Many others have lost job after job and your living conditions are terrible. […]

USA CA: I just have to praise God for His provision. For the past year I have felt that I was to do work on our home and God has provided the resources to do it. I recently had to replace my front door and screen door but my regular handyman use was unavailable. I found a new workman who has been such a blessing. I had to special order my door, but he is charging me almost nothing and offered to do some repairs for free. He explained that he takes care of his kids when his wife works […]

ENJOYING THE JOURNEY, Part 2

  • February 21, 2019

LORD, CHANGE ME IN THE WAIT As you grow in faith and begin to become more Christ like, you will be walking in His peace and love…exactly what our beloved spouses are searching for in the world. The Bible says that the things of this world do not satisfy. Philippians 4:4-8 says, “Rejoice and again I say rejoice. In everything through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, make your request unto Me and the peace that passes all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.” Choose to think on those things that are just and pure and […]

ENJOYING THE JOURNEY – Part 1

I would like to share some of the things I have learned on my Covenant Keeping journey… WHEN I GOT THE BAD NEWS… During a meeting of the Smyrna, GA group, a gentleman started his story with, “When I got the bad news…,” at which time all in attendance broke into laughter because we, too, so well-remembered that moment in our lives! No one can possibly understand that devastation and mourning without experiencing it. We who have walked through it can recall, in great detail, the loss of our beloved spouse and all that the loss involved. The mourning seemed […]

USA  CA: Praising God for the joy with which He continues to fill my heart. I am so grateful for all the wonderful people in my life. Last week I went with some friends to watch a play about C.S. Lewis and enjoyed having that time with faith-filled women who understand and support my stand. Also, this weekend I completed a Tough Mudder event with my son and friends. We had such a good time! Through the training for that event, God showed me that, even when I feel that I’ve reached my limit, I can push myself further. I’ve […]

Who am I, Lord?

  • November 20, 2018

A relevant topic warrants repeating, so this month we are revisiting a topic from some years ago. Most mornings in the growing season you will find me outside shortly after dawn watering my garden veggies and flowers, then sitting on the back patio to read a daily Bible reading and to “contemplate life.” For several days this past season, the question “Who am I, Lord?” was persistently on my mind. I have learned that when thoughts are persistent I should pay attention. It could be something I need to address in my own relationship with the Lord or with Carolyn. […]

What Can I Do When My Spouse Is In Adultery?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 30, 2018

Handling the Hurt There is no denying that adultery brings an incredible amount of pain and hurt when it enters a marriage. This pain may manifest in many ways; rejection, anger, feelings of failure and worthlessness, frustration, helplessness, confusion, depression, suicidal thoughts, vengeful attitudes, shame, neediness, dependencies and the list goes on. As humans who have been created to feel and express emotions, we can’t deny or ignore their reality. At the same time, we cannot let them control us, for many of them are destructive if left unchecked. We must learn to deal honestly with our emotions. In the […]

The Value of Keeping Covenant

There’s a particular moment I will never forget. My husband and I were stationed with the Navy in San Diego and we attended a chapel service where we heard a missionary family sing, “Whatever it takes to draw closer to you, Lord; that’s what I’ll be willing to do.” That song struck my heart and dug deep into my soul as I sang along in my heart. In the years that followed my beloved and I followed the Lord and our commitment to Christ as best we knew how. We enjoyed a good, happy life, even though there were many […]
