Who am I, Lord?

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

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

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 […]

Living

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 27, 2018

This is more than just mere existence. It is taking what you have and learning how to make the most of it. It is breathing in what is around you and appreciating every minute of it. Living is seeing its Author and knowing all things work together for good to them who love Him. Living is having both ups and downs and knowing each are two sides of the same coin. Each has their purpose in developing character. Living can take what the world calls dirt and turn it into the potting soil of faith for greater things. It is […]

Have you ever had an event or series of events that were so frustrating that you wanted to pull your hair out by the roots? Of course you have. At the end when the circumstance was resolved have you seen the hand of God in the process or result? As I write this our annual CKI Families Are Forever conference has just been completed and the time seemed to fly by with all the activities of planning, coordinating and executing the conference. Because we usually print a lot of materials to prepare for the conference we needed to have the […]

Scripture Prayers For Covenant Keepers

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

Proverbs 18:21 states that there is life and death in the power of the tongue. The tongue can be used for good or evil. We can speak about our bad circumstances or we can speak God’s Word over the circumstances. We encourage speaking God’s Word out loud daily. By speaking God’s Word the mind will be renewed, the spirit man will be strengthened and faith will grow. “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 KJV) In the beginning as we speak God’s Word over our families and homes we may feel like we’re being […]

The Benefits of a Long Term Stand

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

I want to encourage you in your stand for your marriage, especially those who feel that it has been too long, that it’s never going to happen, that I am still hurting (all lies of the enemy which can lull us into a state of passivity and complacency making us inert and inactive and even, for some, wanting to give up). You need to realize that the long term stand can be a place where much growth and maturity can come when we allow the Lord to work in us first. During World War II several countries chose to remain […]
