Now What Lord? – Part 2

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 18, 2019

When I came home from the doctor visit where my pregnancy was confirmed, my husband did not share my joy. The devil had stolen his joy. I couldn’t believe it! I also started noticing that my husband was paying special attention to our very young and single secretary. We hired her right out of high school and encouraged her to go to church with us. We wanted her to join the youth group but she said she wasn’t ready for that. Now I was seeing that Satan had set a trap for the two of them. The following year and […]

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 […]

Have a Steadfast Mind on God’s Word

Dear CK Friends, I’m writing you so that you do not to lose heart and to encourage you to rest in Yeshua and be confident in our Father in heaven. I have stopped counting the years that my husband left…a long time ago. I have peace because I know it is the will of God that I remain faithful to my husband in the good and in the bad times. God has shown me that I was very wrong in my mindset, in how I saw the world, and in how I acted. It hasn’t been easy. Yes, I cried; […]

Hope – Part 2

  • 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

  • January 29, 2019

“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 […]

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. […]

I Am Standing for the Healing of Our Marriage 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 13, 2018

Sponsored by The King’s Gardeners Ministries, Spokane Valley, Washington I am standing for the healing of our marriage. I have been ridiculed for my stand by some who claim to be spiritually related to me and have been told that some of the members of my church think I am absolutely crazy. My reply to their criticism is, “They thought Noah was crazy for 120 years, but he floated and the critics drowned!” God hates divorce and we are to hate what God hates. He even hates separation. Separation and divorce are accepted by a society built on the devil’s […]

A Lighthouse Standing Firm

Hi, prayer warriors, As we join hands and hearts together, linking shields, I want to share a breakthrough moment I had yesterday. For almost a year I have been struggling with negative chatter from the enemy, climbing my mountain with what felt like cement block shoes but forging forward and persevering in faith. I know by faith that God hears us, loves our loved ones more than we can imagine and will bless what He has promised in His time. But I have felt like there is a big wall of separation keeping my heart from believing what my head […]

The Value of Keeping Covenant

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

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 […]
