Part 3 We make choices; but what does God say? By Karen Rowe May 5, 2017


Part 3 We make choices; but what does God say?

Friends, God loves us so much that when he created the Earth in the universe, and the heavens … Oh, glory be to God; HE did it all because he SO loves us!


There is evidence of God’s Love for us!

When God created the Earth; He made it rich for us!  God put nutrients in the soil to sustain life for us to live and to enjoy our life.

God made the soil!  The Created soil; it has nutrients in it, that will allow a tree to grow!  If you want evidence of God’s love for you?  On the next HOT day, seek shade; and find it under a tree growing in nutrient rich soil that God made for us; and which gives us shade when hot days become unbearable, we can seek to find what God has provided.


More evidence of God’s love and devotion for us is seen in a tree growing in nutrient rich soil!  A tree gives us wood to build shelter; and wood / fuel to stay warm by a cozy fire.

God has supplied all our needs; and we see evidence of God’s every provision just by looking at God Created Soil!  In the soil, we plant seeds; and from the seeds we grow food to eat!

Friends, as encouragement to you to trust God as your source of everything think of a corn seed  and take a close look with faith in the life that’s inside!  How much more powerful is the life that lives in US through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit of God !

Compare your “Limited-Vision” of perspective to God’s All-Knowing thoughts, plan and purpose to get us to eternity!  Know that God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts. As a corn seed has the corn-stock, the corn-tassel, the ear-of-corn, the corn-silk; and all of the kernels of corn that we eat and also are able to grow more corn by; so is the life in the SEED that God plants in us when we believe!


We may not see the living roots that are also all contained in that one corn-seed, but we know that when planted in nutrient rich soil, God sends the rain and the sun, and it grows!  So it is with the faith that God plants in us to believe!  This is a picture of the power of the life of God, whom becomes our Father whom lives in Heaven when we place our faith and hope in Christ Jesus!  This is life in God, whom lives in you, through the Holy Spirit, when you believe in Jesus as your Savior; and ask him to be your Lord.

In closing, if we ask Jesus to be our Lord, and we trust God is our source, let us take DELIGHT in our FAITH, because we know our faith pleases God.

And, not to leave out this encouragement…


We’re all growing by the grace of God in our faith.  Our human nature may fail at times, but the Holy Spirit will never fail.  Follow the Spirit of God and LET your life sing Honor and Praise and Thanksgiving to God.


To grow means that sometimes we make mistakes as a human, but that doesn’t mean that the life in the seed won’t grow.  Just like a seed has to be taken out of the bag and placed in the soil …Plant your faith in God’s Word and experience life in Christ grow.


A mistake does not cancel out The Graces of God. We’re learning how to do better next time.  Don’t limit yourself based on yesterday, don’t get bogged down in the yesterday’s.

Today it’s a brand new day. Every minute of every hour of every day, Let YOUR Praise to God lift you UP to the place God wants you to be WITH HIM.


Thank you Jesus, we can say “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

I hope this is a blessing of encouragement to wait upon the Lord in faith. Increase your knowledge in the Word of God & gain understanding, by experience, as you seek God 1st and grow in the Way Jesus has Made for you.


What if the Corn Seed denied the life inside to remain the shell …to deny self nature, it is to experience spiritual life nature.



The old has passed; the new has come.  Jesus is:  The Truth, The Way and The Life …


Life and blessings are found In Christ when we seek the life in God Himself.
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me (John 14:1, KJV).”



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.
