How’s Your Rope of Hope Holding UP? By Karen Rowe


Fray is all about friction––a frayed rope has been rubbed so much its fibers are wearing away. People experiencing friction––fighting loudly––are involved in a fray.

If you have had a long day and feel like you’re about to break down, you might say you are frayed. If students are arguing in class about whether nature or nurture is to blame for human problems, a teacher might stay out of the fray, letting the students reach their own conclusions.

hummm, what is God saying to us who believe?

Here’s a thought for you to ponder.  Doesn’t Worry, Doubt, Fear, etc., rise up as bi-products to confusion, envy & selfish ambition & there you will find every evil practice?  Study James 3:16-17

17But the wisdom from above is first of all pure, then peaceable, gentle,accommodating, full of mercy and good fruit,impartial, and sincere. 

To me, this is deep & thought provoking.  But I will ask it anyway, because I believe this is where God can work by working our minds to consider deeper than we have ever thought!

How’s your Rope (Faith, Hope & Love) with Jesus holding up?  Are you practicing reacting to troubles with Jesus?  Or practicing to react to troubles with fear?

Fear and frustration may come AT you, but friends, in Christ, you have a choice NOT to LET Fear, anxiety, frustrations, etc., negatives come IN you (where Christ lives in you)!

What comes at you to stop you; God can use to promote you … if you will take your stand on God’s Word to you!  And Believe to LOVE, Forgive & Let God to Let God!  Like wiring your house right (neg to pos) to carry the current for the light to turn on.

I couldn’t hold the current between my hands, but Jesus can!  Pray for each other; and pray for those who despite-fully use you…

What happens when your HOPE pulls you in one direction, while fears come at you to pull you in another?  Who is your Hope and your stay? JESUS!?  When worry weighs your down, it can be easy to forget the Rope God has given us is not frayed; but a LOVE STRONG enough to hold us, lift us and carry us!

God is not confused about the Hope Jesus brings in The Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done.  On Earth as it is in Heaven.

How quickly do you want it (the frustration / agitation / fear) to end?

Pray, Give us this day _____… Forgive us of our ___; as we forgive those who ___; and lead us not into ____, but deliver us from ___.  For THINE IS _____ The Kingdom! The Power! And the Glory!  Forever and ever!  Amen!

How do we come to Jesus?  You come to Jesus through and by the Name of Jesus!

and learn to love like God … and this is where we learn Greater is He who lives in me than he that is in the world.  I hope this is a blessing to you; and that the Lord God will give you a new and supernatural revelation of His Word that will work good for you, in you and with you; that all goes well with you.

How much has God loved the world?


How’s Your Rope of Hope Holding UP? By Karen Rowe


And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.

Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son TO BE THE Savior OF THE world.

All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.

God IS love, AND all who live IN love live IN God, AND God lives IN them.

AND as we live IN God, our love GROWS more perfect.

SO we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence BECAUSE we live LIKE Jesus here IN this world.
1 John 4:13‭-‬17 NLT

Are you growing in your sacrifices to honor God & pray for _?
GOD IS the measure of PERFECT Love! 》we have mercy and grace from God for our allowance as we grow in Christ’s perfection.

By practicing our trust in God’s Word, we grow in our relationship of realising we need fuel when we lack in knowledge of the love God has for the world.

TO any measure OF FAITH, we need God’s Word to grow by faith.

Can we really know what pleases God?


Out fear…

Friends, you know fear wants to come in you, BUT love like you are not scared! Believe enough to LOVE someone enough to PRAY for them.

Lift your eyes into Jesus and do not LET fear come in you. LIVE WITH HOPE IN JESUS NAME! GOD cares for you!

IN closing, God doesn’t need us to do HIS Work, Jesus told us how to PRAY & how to LOVE & to take time to pray. We all need to meet Jesus on the Damascus Road that our eyes may be opened to see Jesus for Whom He is & when we receive this, we will never be the same!

Love in Christ,

Karen Rowe

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.
