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 […]

Snapshot of “Families Are Forever – From Now On” Conference

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 8, 2018

We had the great delight of concluding our annual CKI “Families Are Forever” Conference at the Sunday morning service of Steele Creek Church of Charlotte in Charlotte, NC. During the service the pastor welcomed our group and explained to his congregation that we were people who really understood covenant and were living it out, all of us standing for covenant marriage, some standing faithfully for decades. As the service ended the pastor asked for anyone who would like to come up for prayer to come and line up across the stage with their full prayer team ready to receive them. […]

Be Hospitable To One Another Without Complaint

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 7, 2018

A few years ago my pastor preached a series of stories from the Old Testament and the New Testament on the gift of hospitality. It truly was a blessing to review those true stories of old. Then the pastor asked a few people to share their personal story of ministering this gift in either their homes or elsewhere. I resisted sharing the story that came to mind quickly because it was a difficult one, BUT GOD (!) kept nudging me until I agreed. After all of our stories were shared from the pulpit, a man in the congregation said he […]

Overcoming Evil with Love “You have heard that it has been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, that you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue you at the law, and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two. Give to him that asks you, and from him that would borrow of you turn not away. You […]

We Can Rebuild Our Marriage If We Put God At The Center

Prayers get answered. Don’t let anyone or anything make you think otherwise. Never ever doubt that your prayers are being heard and that our God is working for those who love Him. I have prayed for general changes in my marriage but the specific prayers are the ones I have found are the ones God answered. I have prayed for God to work in me. Those prayers started in November of 2010 right after my wife and I separated. I knew “we” had problems, issues, etc., but I also found that I alone could not change the problems “we” had […]

  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 […]

Is God Asleep In Your Boat?

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

Is God Asleep In Your Boat? This is another blog that I am grabbing from my son-in-law Scott Toal, because it has so many covenant-keeping principles. The first paragraph is exactly how most CKIs think when they first begin their journey. It really doesn’t seem as if God is aware of what is happening in your life. Read this and think about how you would react to the situation that the disciples found themselves experiencing. I’m Sleeping! “Did it ever seem like when you were going through something very hard, very heavy, very scary, that God was asleep?  He was […]

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 […]
