Peaks and Valleys, By Karen Rowe


Good day dear readers,

Before I leave you to your reading in today’s devotion; May I share this revelation with you that just come to me as I was posting this link on twitter for others to discover this place  that we all love to come and grow in our faith together!

We sometimes get to know how Moses felt; & also to appreciate how the people felt; the ones God was leading out of the slavery; and to the promised land.

God leads us “Out & To.”

The promises of God VS The human nature.

Trusting God Beyond what we see, feel and know. There is more! And, Yes! There is hope!  I hope this brings strength to you; as we are called to build ourselves up in our most Holy Faith and to Pray in the Holy Spirit.  But first, we must be born-again; and then we begin to grow in our spiritual understandings.  I hope this is a blessing to you today!

If we can be of a help to you, please let us know.

Peaks and Valleys …

If we get this we will never be the same!


This FAITH & SCRIPTURE has transformed my mind to trust in God’s Guiding Peace & Wisdom to Follow Jesus beyond the emotions … TO do God’s will; without really being able to explain purpose… YET, eventually if we stay on this path with God, we will see what God already knew that was on down the road!


Many times, it is just a simple choice, but comes with seemingly enormous consequences…BUT only in our limited human nature understanding.


We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives. Commit your actions to the Lord , and your plans will succeed.
Proverbs 16:1‭-‬3 NLT


The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
Proverbs 16:9 ESV



Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord , and turn away from evil. IT WILL BE HEALING TO YOUR FLESH AND REFRESHMENT TO YOUR BONES. Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; THEN your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. My son, DO NOT DESPISE THE LORD’S DISCIPLINE OR BE WEARY OF HIS REPROOF, FOR THE LORD REPROVES him WHOM HE LOVES, as a father the son in whom he delights.
Proverbs 3:3‭-‬12 ESV





Many times, I WANT to do what seems good & even like the right thing to do, BUT we can learn more & more to stand on the Word of God; because God knows best!


It may be hard, but when understanding comes, faith grows!


Every time our faith grows, we can trust God at higher levels & pleasing God is the most powerful thing we can do!


God will go before us & we need to keep God in the front of people…Never Waiver.


I hope this is an encouragement & becomes a blessing to you too!


Till next time!  “Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

The address in the Bible is found in 2 Corinthians 1:2, and this is the NIV today.

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.

  1. Good day, if you have found this comment, it is not by accident! As the Lord began showing me a deeper understanding today, even growing since this devotion we did yesterday. The word “THAT” Spirit jumped off the page to me this morning! (KJV)

    God is THAT spirit whom frees us & makes us see! Yes we have to prepare our heart for repentence! We have to want what we hope for…. And be willing to change our minds! We have to SEEK the face of Jesus, like a child, believing God is God; and that there is always MORE that God knows…than we have ever come to know & understand YET.

    It is easy to Believe when we admit we can be wrong…if we do not let pride get in the way. IF we are willing to accept another way is better than our own way & mind set.

    There is another way, HIS Name is JESUS and JESUS gives us a CHOICE! The Holy Spirit has a MIND and this MIND is the Truth that sets us free!

    The word of God says it well…Will you open your Bible and see & hear what God wants to say to you today?

    If we get this we will never be the same! All Praise & Glory to God; I hope this is a blessing to you today…

    “But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ. Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand. But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
    2 Corinthians 3:14‭-‬18 NLT

    Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
    2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV
