Endurance is as little as your mind allows you to see -By Karen Rowe



How long can you hold on to the hope that you have?

How long can you keep going when you feel like you can’t go any longer?

One more day?

One more hour?

15 More Seconds?

10 More Seconds?

Counting down Praising the LORD, now look where your endurance has brought you and where you have come from!

It is not too late for you to start brand new Today!



Who takes your mind off of the endurance that you feel …

and are passing through for a little while!

Endurance is a gift …

to get you somewhere better,


and Higher than you have ever been before!

Sure you can see yet,

because you haven’t been there before!

FAITH keeps marching on though…

and before long you will see what God knew all along!


We can look higher and trust in the power of the living God who lives in us!

AND, we have a job to do along our way to the many blessings that we hope for …

Walk by faith/not by sight with the enduring & powerful love of Christ alive in our heart!

Faithfully focusing on Whom God IS and who He makes us to be!

My job is the same as yours:

Faithfully & Unconditionally, Trusting and Obediently Believing in God…

and each day experiencing more of who Jesus is to you and who you are to Him.


Greater is He who lives in me than he that is in the world!

The joy of the Lord IS our strength!


And, the God who made you … and knows you better than you know your own capabilities … knows the value of His promise to us that we can endure for a little while -Trusting God that our hope is set in Him and we shall overcome!


“I am not what I ought to be.

I am not what I want to be.

I am not what I hope to be.

But still, I am not what I used to be.

And by the grace of God, I am what I am.”

John Newton


Grace is the power of God living inside of you to accomplish all good and righteous things!


Natural strength is what we receive from the hand of God the Creator.  Spiritual strength is what we receive from God in grace!

Watchman Nee


“Once I knew what it was to rest upon the rock of God’s promises, and it was indeed a precious resting place, but now I rest in his grace.  He is teaching me that the bosom of his love is a far sweeter resting place than even the rock of his promises.”

Hannah Whitall Smith


Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.


Hold on to the hope that you have and reach out in faith to do more than you can do -all that God can do through you!  And endure for a little while longer, for the God of hope will go with you through your storm  & HE will raise you up to be more than you can be alone!


Blessings and Love in Christ,

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
