Let the Light Of The Lord Come Out Of You To Shine! By Karen Rowe


Dear Readers of FGGAM,

Hello from NC.  It is a cold and rainy day again here today.  I wonder, how is the weather where you live?  Regardless of the weather, we can rise up together to lift up praise to God, whom is our Father in Heaven; and to whom lives in us through Christ Jesus, our personal Savior and Lord.

I personally thank God that we can gather together in this warm place to celebrate and learn more and more about the Christ!  To deepen our knowledge as we share with each other, is a beautiful thing to me!  I praise God for whom He Is; and thank Him for you, and for FGGAM, that to me, it is a place to come in, and go to, like a Library, where knowledge is available for checking it out!  The knowledge we hope that you find is the Good News of Jesus.  Yes, God has made His relationship with you personal! God loves you my friend!

It doesn’t take but a breath and a pause …

Have you made your confession to God that you believe His testimony about His Son, and His love for you?  When you do, you will discover that God loves us first and best, so that we can learn what it is to love, and be loved by God.

Note from Jesus:  It is written in Red, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance (Luke 5:32, KJV).”

Now, Something personal

I always like to start our time here on FGGAM with something personal in the message the Lord Jesus gives me each day; and as always, I believe it always fits  just right, because of the God whom works all things together for the good to them that love God.

This morning, I was asking my son and husband about how electricity works, specifically, because I had it mentioned in my daily devotion already.  Friends, we need each other to gain understanding about things we don’t know, because God has blessed us each with different counterparts and weights to help each other in our understanding to really comprehend what God is saying to us!


As the morning went on and I took a few notes before breakfast was over, after we said our family morning prayers, Robert left for work.  Later, Daniel called out from his bedroom, “Has daddy left yet?”  I replied, “Yes, son.  What is it that you need?” He entered into the kitchen, as he was gathering his school things together and said, “I wanted to ask dad if I could take my earphones to school today; but since he is not here, I won’t take them.”


Wow!  This is the picture that God wants us to understand about abiding in His Word!  I went on to teach / bring up the light of understanding to my son’s mind, this message.  And, my son, said, “So I am teaching myself?”  I replied, “Son, you have the greatest teacher who ever lived living on the inside of you!  Jesus is teaching you all things, according to His Word!”  This is how the Father God wants us to respond to all things; and in all life dilemmas!

When we are not certain we have our Father’s permission to move on something, go back to the last thing God told you; and wait until you speak to Him about a question again, but be willing to obey what God, our Father in Heaven tells us is best for us, and others around us, even if we don’t completely understand the why, just yet!

With that introduction, I hope this devotion is a blessing to you!  At the end, the Lord showed me that Sunday’s Devotion tied right on in.  Be blessed friends!  Lived loved!  And love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength!


Because, like God 1st loved us, we love God; if you try to plug in to the world without first plugging in to God, it is of little effect; if any positive effect at all.  We can’t shine alone … BUT GOD!  Greater is God who is in you than he that is in the world!   Like I was taught to plug in my computer, it is not worth the risk to blow up my computer (brain) by skipping the order of which to plug into first – to the world / or to my God.  Jesus is the Light of the world!

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (John 8:12, KJV).”

Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word

Let the Light of the Lord get out of you to Shine!

Learning how to read the Bible has changed my life! We get the inside scoop of just what we need every day if we seek what we need & read!

There is hope & renewal in God’s Word!

Relationships with people can be tuff, but God’s Word renews our inner being by the teaching of Christ!

To experience the Bible LIGHT up what we need to remember about who God is & How great is His LOVE for us will renew our soul in the very presence of God!

Our heart is the HEART of the story God is writing! A story that began many years ago! And a story God has always known that our heart would be made from the beginning to get to the end of the beginning to eternally shaped (not in iniquity), but for all who loves Jesus (in the pureness of the heart of God)!

This is a spiritual transformation!!!

Electricity is made by exciting electrons! ~ Like Reading the Word of God will excite the LIFE / SPIRIT in us to believe; & the Word of Christ will cause “The LIGHT of understanding” to turn on!

As electricity is used to run things, Our heart (spirit) runs our mind, because as it is written Where your heart is, there will be your treasure also.

The Holy Spirit is the Mind of Christ! But there are other unholy / evil spirits loosed in this world also. Electricity can be understood & so can spiritual matters be comprehended.

It is a matter of heart in what we choose to desire…

A movement happens! As Solar Energy is collected from the sun, converted to electricity & is either stored or sent back to the grid; so it is that we send our praise back to God and also store knowledge for future use .

Something happens! Who is your spiritual source of power? God is a Spirit and God is the SOURCE of our Holy Spiritual Transformation!

Let the teaching of Christ live inside you richly. Use all wisdom to teach and counsel each other. Sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16 ERV

Something to think about… Who is Jesus to you?

Love in Christ,
YES! There is Hope in Today!

SUnday’s Hope in Today Ministries, Inc. Devotion



Are you prepared to grow? Open your Bible & IF we get what the Bible says, we will never be the same!

Let’s LET JOY & PEACE rule in our hearts rooted and grounded in the mystery OF God’s love, which is Christ! What a book of Truth!

You must depend on Christ only, drawing life and strength from him. Just as you were taught the truth, continue to grow stronger in your understanding of it. And never stop giving thanks to God.
Colossians 2:7 ERV

Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.

Romans 12:2 ERV

Hope to see you at church! It may be a good one, lets not miss it!

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.
