Dear Readers, I hope this is a blessing to you! Sometimes, we just need to open our mind to hear from the Lord.  Sometimes we can block our blessings by our thoughts.  But like this morning, when I asked Jesus to help me, “Holy Spirit” Your thoughts be mine, God opened my mind to see, when I got my thoughts out of the way.  Jesus truly is the Truth, the Way and the Life!  I write, because I love to do what God enables me and trusts me to do … and all because God loves you.  If you can’t believe God loves you yet? That’s okay; begin by believing Jesus loves you and say, Yes, Lord, I am listening!  I believe!  God does the rest.  God has loved you 1st.  We just believe and trust by faith, what our Created heart responds to when we hear the Voice of our Maker say,  “Child, of God, we are made to live with God … believe God’s own Testimony about His Son, Jesus, and …”

Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word.

The Heart of Jesus, by Karen Rowe

How many books are there in the Bible?

66 books

The last 27 books of the Bible, from Matthew to Revelation, combined with the first 39 books of the Holy Bible from Genesis to Malachi, we have the Biblical canon of 66 books that make up our complete Bible.

A biblical canon of scripture is a set of texts which a particular religious community regards as authoritative scripture. The English word “canon” comes from the Greek κανών, meaning “rule” or “measuring stick”.

There are hundreds of versions of the Bible in the English language. The Bible has been translated into more than 2000 languages.

“BUT he that is JOINED UNTO the Lord is ONE spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).”

Get Understanding SALT preserves! READ Proverbs 4:5-6! WOW!

In Africa, there is no separation between government & religion. Thus, their view of Christians is from a distant world view, & one that misrepresents a true Follower of Jesus.

Perhaps even in our own Country, as I live in the USA, people get a world’s glance and can’t see the separation that happens in a Christians heart.

There is a Form of Religion, but Jesus takes our heart to a superior level of understanding that Jesus is the Bridge to our Redeemed Relationship with God, Our Father who art in Heaven.

Ezekiel 36 26 Jesus in our Heart is a Glimpse of Eternal Spring Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.

Yes, painting a picture of what Jesus does in our heart, is like seeing old-fashioned flower beds burst up NEW in the spring!

It is by the Spirit of God that life is & is sustained!

Christ puts God’s Mind in us when we receive God’s Promised Salvation! Each day we get OPPORTUNITY to “die to self” & SEEK the Mind of God. GOD’S WILL be done IS Good Will!

How else could an OLDER heart BECOME New! FROM a proud to be stubborn girl that could hold a grudge … TO be quick to ask Holy Spirit how can I remain at Peace with ___?

Ezekiel 36 26 Change Happens in our Heart Desires Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.  Thank You Jesus!

Lord God, Creator of the Universe, thank you for another day! May I show compassion in every thing I do. FRIENDS, when faith intersects God’s Faithfulness, we will know our Father in an intimate way!

In Christ, saved by Grace and believed to receive the Holy Spirit, We have two minds. Choose Holy Spirit’s Mind, and abide in the Mind of Christ; put on the full armor of God & dwell in the Spiritual House forever and ever, beginning with this brand New Today.

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.
