What is Thanks Giving All About? By Karen Rowe


Good morning Friends,

Would you say this is true or false in your personal experiences?

We are closer to God when we are asking questions,

than when we think we have all the answers.

For me personally, The Lord helped me figure out that my personal motto is, “I don’t have it all figured out, BUT God does!  … Follow Jesus!”

That revelation was so powerful to me that I turned it into a Bumper Sticker!  This was many years ago … Far beyond 13 Years ago, and still today that is the best answer to all my troubles!

I share with you consistently; and again today, not because I think I know everything.  But I share with you, like that bumper sticker; If I didn’t make the bumper sticker available, because some people do not like bumper stickers, like me :), then, the one who might like a bumper sticker could not get that bumper sticker, if I did not share the revelation of what God gave me.

“I don’t have it all figured out, BUT God does!  … Follow Jesus!”

It is important to me that I say, I went to bed last night saying to my husband, I wonder if people think that I think I know everything, because I share so much? We agreed, that sure there are those who probably look at me and think that I think more highly of my self than I ought.

The Lord gave me my answer this morning.  I am nothing in my own knowledge to share with you.  But Christ in me has something important to say every day!  If I didn’t share because most may not like it or approve; then I would be keeping this message from you; and you might like it?

I hope this is a blessing to you; mostly in a way to learn to appreciate our gift from God with a confidence that Thanks Giving to me is this:  I learned that this day is all about letting someone else spread their wings to fly!

Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word

By Karen Rowe

Praying this morning, The Lord painted a picture for me that shows me Jesus knows all things, understands how we feel & has already provided a WAY!

Two mountains of troubles (troubles all around us & in front of us & as far as we can humanly see) BUT CHECK THIS OUT! Jesus is the LIGHT! The Lord showed me a picture of His Path! Right through the valley where the troubles are near & all around us, but cannot harm us ! THE LORD guides us when we seek to follow Him, talk with Him & tell Him all about how we feel, but seeking God’s thoughts about our human evaluation! THE LORD protects us & shelters us in the Spiritual Revelations !

FRIENDS, don’t give up, just because of all the troubles that come against you! TROUBLES may come At us; BUT we have a choice NOT to LET them come IN us! ABIDE in God & He in you ~ Trust in The SEED God gives you & Sow & GO!

And there is a time to Rest & patiently wait, which means Work hard, LIVE, live quietly, find the miracle of JOY (BY: Jesus 1st; Others 2nd & Self Last); Continue to pray, but find your Peace, guard your Peace (forgive, pray,let go) & Keep your Peace (continue to seek & Let go)…even through the darkness & unknowns as we travel; God knows (LET THE LORD LIFT YOUR HEAD TO HIM). God is the keeper of our Salvation; discover the blessings of trusting & abiding IN God (God is LOVE 1Jn3:16 & 1Co 13) & do not fear!

Get to know Jesus & Discover God’s Light of your Salvation & then work Salvation!

Lord , how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. But thou, O Lord , art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. Arise, O Lord ; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongeth unto the Lord : thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
Psalms 3:1‭-‬8 KJV

I learned that this day is all about letting someone else spread their wings to fly!  To Share, the guide to teach, but give the opportunity to let someone else spread their wings to fly!  Isn’t that why, “It is Written.”?


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.
