  USA LA: (An encouragement to all who do not have a local group to join one of the online CKI groups) To Rex and Carolyn (CKI Directors), Susan (SE Regional Director), Claudia (Technical Director), and Geri (Group Support in CKI Office)… THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!…for all your support, leadership, and help as I have limped slowly into leadership! Tonight was the first time I had a real meeting using ZOOM without planning to do so! I’d planned phone calls again, but one member’s phone wasn’t working. She suggested using the new online group email program, ZOOM. God […]

Christmas While Waiting For Restoration

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

Christmas. It is that wonderful time of year when families celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a time of cheer, a time of blessing and a time of… Wait! Hold on a minute! If we are honest with our thoughts, it’s a time of remembrance. A time when we had our spouses in the same house and a sense of great love and anticipation as we watched our “I do” open the special present we spent hours picking just for them. The reality is that we may be feeling sad, that this year our spouse is […]

The In-Between 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 20, 2018

This is the distance from here to there. It can be a path from where you are to where you want to be. The in-between usually has a feel of an incomplete state. It can be a rough spot or an unfulfilled promise. It can be the temporal state of darkness or confusion. The in-between can be that lonely space where the vacuum of loss tries to steal your spirit. It can be where sorrow and pain seem unending. It can be a place of poverty and lack. It can be in the emptiness of not feeling loved or an […]

How Badly Do You Want To Know The Truth?

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

Are you willing to set aside all your filters and allow something new or foreign to come in? Are you willing to empty yourself of that which merely occupies in order to receive that which fully satisfies? Are you willing to get up on the Cross and stay there until all the impurities and toxins are burned away? Do you desire to know what God knows and follow His time-released path — one step at a time? Are you willing to forsake all others in order to achieve a great Prize? Do you trust Him to take care of all […]

Who am I, Lord? 

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • 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. […]

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 Door… Shut and Locked

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 2, 2018

It is quite normal for a Covenant Keeper to experience being with their spouse’s family for various reasons. Family members get sick and a hospital visit is the right thing to do. Children have birthdays and graduations from high school and college with a family gathering to celebrate an accomplishment. A family member dies and there is a funeral to attend. There will be reasons why you, your spouse and your spouse’s family will be together and many times this gathering happens in a small space making it impossible to ignore anyone. Often your spouse will be there with the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Peace

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 1, 2018

What an elusive thing. Everybody wants it, but few understand or want to do what it takes to receive it. Peace is more than rest. It is subjecting everything to the will of God. It is allowing the Holy Spirit to strain every self-flesh thing out of us. It relinquishes its grip on the things of this world. Peace is always on the move. From one side of our character to the other, exposing that which corrupts the soul. Peace is an infusion of God’s grace to do what increases life in spite of a trial. Peace is the container […]
