Don’t Lock God Out Of Your Life! By Karen Rowe

LOOK! There's a Rainbow For YOU! Jesus Loves You!


It’s not that God needs respect! God is God! He is respect!

But God gives us opportunities that he can teach us respect SO THAT we can learn respect & if we learn respect, we will be able to show respect; to earn respect!

Why? To earn!

As a mother I would love to be lightweight in my teaching with my son & give in to let him get his way more often (when it really doesn’t “seem to” make that much of a difference); BUT GOD in Me won’t allow that!

I don’t need respect, because I know who I am to God! YET, I have to teach respect FOR my son & his good!

Solomon wrote the Book of Proverbs & Ecclesiastes; The wisest man ever to walk this Earth other than Jesus!

My husband told me this morning, Solomon wrote down things as he learned from experience …!

You may be afraid of the challenges that you face?

You may sense what is ahead of you! BUT respecting God moves mountains!

Sometimes, all we can do is whisper a prayer that we hope someone is praying for us! In the face of a challenge, SOMETIMES that’s all we have time for! It may be pouring the rain so hard you can’t see The Detour in front of you? BUT God will Set a Rainbow for you down the road somewhere! FEAR THE LORD TODAY & drive very cautious through your life to know Whom God is to you!

Before you get off the detour, God will stop the rain! God does these things! Do you doubt that?
Friend don’t do life alone! The Buddy System is Jesus! Immediately, Robert said, Karen there’s a rainbow! & God has a rainbow beside you & before you the entire way through this life!

What defines your beauty and Character? Isn’t it God who radiates from within?Pictured, in the story, Daniel shared his conclusion with me! Mom, I put a Verse in it. Is that okay? Absolutely! In that book, the man built his fire to find shelter under a tree weighted with snow. The snow fell on him & killed him. No one was there to rescue him.

Friend, build your shelter in Christ Jesus, The Living Word of God!

Title, date and author.
Ecclesiastes was written by Solomon in his old age.

I can only say Amen!


That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 NLT

Set before us is ~ For our GOOD to identify w/ THE WORD!

LOOK! There’s a Rainbow For YOU! Jesus Loves You!
God did this!
God Speaks! “Please take notice of ME …” Jesus loves you SO MUCH!

Jesus is the Truth and the Truth shall set you free!  Peace is a Powerful identity in a relationship.

I hope this is a blessing to you.

Thank you Jesus! And, to God be the Glory!  May many come to KNOW you!  This I pray.  For I know, Only God could do this in this way!

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.
