Karen Rowe: My challenge was to say, “Yes, I can.”


FGGAM is 3 years young on August 1, 2015. 

From the Heart of Hope in Today Ministries, Praise God for a third year to proclaim “To God be the Glory,” at For God’s Glory Alone Ministries, with Pastor Dewey Moede!

Dedication Scripture by God’s Grace!

Answer Me When I Call!

But know that the LORD has set apart the godly man for Himself; The LORD hears when I call to Him. Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the LORD.…(Psalm 4:3-5).”

By God’s Grace alone, I am Karen Rowe with Hope in Today Ministries, Inc., which began simply as “Hope in Today” on a Christian Radio Station in which Pastor Dewey Moede challenged my faith to step up to writing for Dewey’s Daily Cup and the microphone for God’s Glory. My challenge was to say, “Yes, I can.” Through my faith challenges, I have understood “I am weak, but the Holy Spirit is strong” and greater is HE who lives in me than He who is in the world. Through these challenges and opportunities to serve the Lord, I heard the Lord name my ministry; and God called it Hope in Today. And, still today, I am grateful to serve as a volunteer writer at FGGAM and represent Hope in Today Ministries, Inc., For God’s glory Alone!

Brother Dewey asked me, if I could write a post on what FGGAM means to me as a Sister in Christ. Because of what the word “ministry” means to me, in order to reflect on another ministry, I must ask God 1st what it means to Him. I prayed; and the Lord raised up my heart to tell what FFGAM means to my heart, which is my spirit listening to God in me.

This is what the Lord has shown me: Ministry is helping others step up … and For God’s Glory Alone Ministries has helped me step up and into God’s ministry gifts to me! Dewey, through For God’s Glory Alone Ministries, gives opportunities and even challenges to step up in our faith to serve our Lord –to share the Good News of Jesus and reach the world with the Gospel of Christ. There is a lot of information in the world, but FGGAM gives an opportunity to hear the Revelation Knowledge from God, which is the Truth the world needs to understand. I believe in my heart of God that when we step up in our faith to work together for the cause of Christ, God does an amazing work to help others believe in what they doubt …

As FGGAM has bloomed by God’s Grace Alone, the Lord has used this ministry to help me step up in my believing heart to discover the ministry gift that God has given to me –Hope in Today Ministries! Through stepping up in my faith in Christ Jesus to meet the opportunities offered to me from the faith in Christ Jesus Dewey had from the LORD, I discovered what ministry means to God! I discovered God IS the glory! God is the power! And, it is God who does the work! I am grateful to serve in all I do for God’s Glory Alone! FGGAM is a place to serve our Lord well –to reach the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ!

And FGGAM is a place to find something the Lord has waiting on you!

God bless you my friends in Christ! Welcome to those who don’t know Jesus as the Christ! Grace and Peace be with FGGAM; and may God’s glory be seen –for whether in life, or in service it is for God’s Glory Alone.

Thank you brother Dewey for asking me to share what FGGAM means to me! I prayed; and this is what the Lord put on my heart to say and do! I pray this is a blessing For God’s Glory Alone!

In honor of FGGAM’s commemorative third year, Hope in Today Ministries offers you a Special Gift of God’s Love!

Through the anointing of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Dewey Moede, wrote the forward in The Train Whistle, by Karen Rowe (found on pages 23-24).

“…that we are to be working with God to be co-laborers with HIM, for we are God’s coworkers. We are God’s field, God’s building. …to be part of carrying out the Great Commission and be the salt and light of the world to be co-laborers with Him…”

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.
