Blessed In Christ, By Karen Rowe

This Drop of Pure White Liquid Flowed from the Vine AFTER I dusted OFF the dead Leaves on this Poinsettia Plant! I hope you saw that Story too.


I got stuck yesterday. Do you ever get stuck somewhere btw your thoughts and what is yet to come in a deeper understanding?

Something so simple? Yet, is anything simple to us until we get it? No, it is a simple concept of “the pure at heart”, but it was not simple to me yesterday.

I heard the whisper this morning about the Verse of the Day, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8 KJV).”

Can I be honest, I have had this picture hanging on my wall for years. I always humbly, but let’s be honest, also somewhat smuggly thought this was somehow about me?

So how could I write about being pure at heart? Like as IF it had something to do with me / or anyone, BUT JESUS!

Here it is!

God did this! I saw it! And I received it. Friends, when you receive this, you will never be the same!
Love in Christ, Karen

I told you about the pure white blood / life fluid that come from where I dusted the dead leaves off, right? Well, friends, that pure heart in us is Christ!

That pure heart is Christ!

The heart that is blessed is blessed because of Jesus giving us a new heart (HIS)! We must grow in self-control as a fruit of HIS SPIRIT in us, but friends even that fruit is NOT of self, but of the Holy Spirit of God!

So every thing funnels down to us from Heaven above & IN CHRIST we are made to be a citizen of Heaven – on earth as it is in Heaven!

So there it is! It is all about Jesus!

If you give, give as that cheerful giver, following the spirit of God who lives in you thru and by Jesus!

The blood Jesus shed for us, was of water and spirit life – washing us by His own power and grace and giving us a new opportunity to live in Christ Today!

Grace is here! The Kingdom Come!

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Matthew 5:8 KJV

Look at the Gifts God gives for us to See His Love! Think of Jesus with HIS life He laid down for us to Rise with Him! God knows His thoughts He has TOWARD you. Be sure to lay it all down to Him!

Do you see God in the love He displays in His Creation? Do you experience that covering of His wings of feathers? Do you most know and believe in the love God has for You?

Friends, when you receive this you will never be the same!

Believe to have Hope in this world! What is the hope that flows thru your veins? The world wants to infiltrate fear. But JESUS said, Peace be still and understand, Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God!

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Mt 5:8 KJV


After  Thoughts …

Dogwood bloom with Raindrops …

If I were perfect, I could have got all this out of me in a way that I would have felt good about it. You know, after you have an opportunity to speak & then you think, “Oh I should have said that/ or in that way.” But that’s just it! Let the revelations come! If you have a Revelation thought from Jesus by this stirring a thought in the same way, please share yours too! The thing I saw after I shared it was that I always quoted that verse as pure AT heart. It has nothing to do with our mistakes / nor good we can do, because the revelation is … Christ IN our heart is the pure in heart.

Blessed are the pure IN heart: for they shall see God.
Matthew 5:8 KJV

It’s all about Jesus!

When the Midst of God is your Covering … Jesus is His Name and Peace is the Gift.

I hope this a blessing to you. There is no fear / nor virus in Christ…stay your mind in Christ, & “This too shall pass!” And in the blood of Jesus all these things will pass by in Jesus Name. So we have to adjust to a new way of uncomfortable or life altering adjustments….God is positioning us all to worship Him and see all blessings come by His Hand. Prayers said and love in Christ to all.


I hope this is a blessing to you.

Love in Christ, Karen

John 3:16-17 King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.


Jesus peers before us, so He already knows … Faith in Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is the name above all names.

Faith pleases God. And it is impossible please God without faith.

BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself, AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread, and drink OF THAT cup.
1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV

FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
James 1:12 KJV


And, Always Remember 2 Things!

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

NOW … Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

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.
