MISSION CRITICAL – Will YOU Accept the Mission?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • September 12, 2016

I was journeying with family to a celebration and talking with my sister about spiritual things- the state of the church, marriage and our nation- and how we need God’s intervention. A van passed us and I was immediately struck by the wording on its side which read: Mission Critical – Power solutions. It had an emblem to the right of these a bit like a flame and the word ‘Piller‘ (as spelt). It was like a direct response to our questions and conversation about the crisis we are in. We all know things in our nation are critical and […]

Forgiving in the Midst of Betrayal

Carolyn’s Notes:  Alicia is a member of the CKI group that I lead. I believe her openness about the pain she experienced will help bring healing to those still experiencing the pain of betrayal and abandonment. May you find a treasured memory while experiencing time with the perfect Bridegroom. He is your only hope of peace during this time of separation. Betrayal and abandonment are astoundingly painful places to be.  In my own experience of betrayal or abandonment facing divorce I felt raw, like something unreal was happening.  It was tempting to keep myself company with self-pity.  But instead, I […]

Watch Out For Those Stealth Sins

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • July 25, 2016

The enemy’s goal is to come in through the side door unannounced and get us off course. He wants to blend in with our day-to-day routines and get our focus on things other than the Lord. Here are a few that color themselves as only “being human” yet don’t honor God a bit. Quick acknowledgment and repentance will sweep these critters out of the path. Discontentment – a spirit which has a natural dissatisfaction with anything Self-elevation – (I call it “selevation”) drawing attention to yourself. If your heart is screaming “look at me,” then you probably haven’t been looking […]

A “Will Do” God

Do you remember when you were a child and your earthly father promised to do something or take you somewhere, but for some reason he couldn’t do it or he didn’t do it? You would say, “But you promised!” Well, we have a heavenly Father who promised and WILL DO. We can go to Him and say, “You promised that those who fear the commandment of the Lord will be rewarded. You promised that he who walks with wise men will be wise. You promised that a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of […]

Ten Recovery Steps After Being Misjudged

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 26, 2015

You’ve been there. Your intentions were misread. You meant one thing and someone inserted their own interpretation of your motives. The sting is all you can see for the moment. What are the steps to take when something as damaging as this hits you broadside? Acknowledge the sting. The wound. The hurt. Especially if the person is close to you. Minimizing the pain just sends it underground to surface in a different form to be dealt with another day. It’s going to hit you sooner or later; this way you get to pick the position you are in when it hits. […]

How Big is Your Marriage Restoration Dream?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 5, 2015

My article last month titled The Headline of Your Marriage referenced the Bible story about Joseph. Joseph didn’t have control of his life, but what he did have control of was the headline of his life. He didn’t exactly use wisdom when he told his brothers about the dreams God had given to him about the future. His brothers didn’t call him Joseph but rather they called him “dreamer.” We all remember that Joseph’s father had given him a coat of many colors because according to Genesis 37:3, “Now Israel loved Joseph more than any other of his sons…” He […]

Restoration-Closer Every Day

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

Above all things at all times, God seeks relationship and fellowship with us. Our love of Him means that much to Him. He seeks for ways of intimacy with us. Knowing God and enjoying Him and life is what God wants and desires. We have constant unbroken fellowship with Him. 1 John 1:7 (AMP). As we draw near unto God, He draws near unto us. Then the way we live will always honor and please the Lord, and our lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, we will grow as we learn to know God better. […]

Unkink the Garden Hose of Your Blessings

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • May 18, 2015

As a child playing outside did you ever grab a garden hose to get a drink? Full force from the tap was probably too much water at once so you would deliberately bend the hose double and squeeze – or “kink” – the hose to reduce the flow. Maybe you just turned the tap a fraction to get a trickle, but where was the fun in that? Especially since you could quickly pass the hose to a friend or sibling (usually younger) and simultaneously let go of the kink. Then you had to run. The garden hose analogy was brought […]

Marriage Restoration and God’s Provisioning For The One Who Left

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 20, 2015

This one was difficult for me to write because it made me reflect on events and choices surrounding the breakup of our marriage and the first few years following. Some were events and choices that can still bring feelings of shame and regret even after all these years of restoration. I will relate a few to illustrate the article topic but first we need to “set the stage.” Your marriage had problems and fell apart leaving both of you with financial situations in distress if not outright shambles. That statement covers at least 95% of all breakups. If your income […]

Consider Yourself “A City Not Forsaken”

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 28, 2015

There is generally a point in time when we are so down; not having the strength to pull ourselves out of a pit of despair where things appear hopeless. It is one thing to know you have done wrong and you take action to right it. It is another to feel you are wrong and there seems no way to right it. God is so understanding and able to pull us out of that place. Listen to how He sees your situation in Isaiah 62. First He brags on you. Maybe not on what you have done in the past, […]
