Jesus Teaches Us About Our Father, by Karen Rowe

Lord, take this out of my hands.  I pray this is received by the one whom you love.  In Jesus Name, I pray.  Holy Spirit you are welcome here!

Come to the Father God whom Loves You!

You are Not invisible to God!

Good Morning Dear Friends,

I hope this day finds you well; and if not a good day, the strength to get through the day well.  Because of who your Father is; as we pray, Our Father who …; Our Father we pray to in Jesus Name.

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. 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, KJV

Now, can we take a look at the Field? … as Jesus teaches His Followers a couple of things about what is going on out there; and how to respond to the world of different fathers; most certainly focused on the seed who is growing up without a dad; not to confuse the two.

  • The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

Matthew 13:24-43

 

The Lord has been showing me something for a few years about communications; and the need for certain things God has ordained in this world; one of which is a dad present in a child’s life; and the difference in a dad who loves his child; as we can learn from the love God has for the world.

 

Pause … think about that.  God has so loved the world.  And, God has well understood things we are just learning from God as a child of God as we are prepared to understand what God wants us to know.  When I was a kid, my dad would teach me about telling the truth, but he didn’t teach me about curfews, until I was much older and needed to learn about important things … my dad was always looking out for me; and also defending my brother.  A dad loves each child the same, but parents a little different  – At least from my view as I watch my husband raising our son with me by his side as a mother.  We make a team for our children.  We need each other, but the point of today, is that a lot of things are broken in this world; and many things can happen that leave a child without a dad.

 

But always the same God will be the Good Father and will meet every need.

Have you ever noticed, however, that the worst alone, is when you are with someone and still feel alone?

This is the focus of today to speak to you, who might be hurting in this way; that you have a dad, but not a present dad.  Perhaps you have found a brotherhood who needs a dad, but … who is the Head?  What kind of seeds are being sown into you?  Faith in a Good Father?  or something else?

Do you know

god has claimed you as His child?

Have you known to agree with God??? … that He in fact does love you; and God is not ashamed of you by anything you have done.  God only asks that you repent and believe in the love Jesus has had for God; and for you!  And, we do this by agreeing with God; in that God sent Jesus to accomplish this ACT of Grace and Mercy for you, that, “Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.”

 

The Good Father has done an extraordinary thing for us; and has been blunt:  “no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (Jesus).”  

God saw Jesus beaten for you and for me; that we might be called children of God; and to have this right for Righteousness with Forgiveness and a full pardon for sin!

 

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Isn’t it fair that

a Good Father will ask you to believe Him?

I am going to have to agree with God (or I won’t say this) that I believe it is His Voice I hear asking you questions like:

  1. What is your identity? Who is your Father- as Jesus defined God’s Field?  have you identified who you are by who you are to Christ?  yet?  I am here to tell you something your dad may not have told you.  Your Father in Heaven has so loved you; and He is proud of who you are.  God doesn’t judge you by the things you have done / or not done; He simply loves you has His Child … He proved this by sending Jesus for you.
  2. Oh Lord, this is hard for me to ask, but Who was your dad’s identity?  Many women?  Drugs?  Alcohol? Your dad?  …  Or the Father God through and by Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Living God?   What evidences did you see as a child of a father’s love for you?

Do you know how valuable you are to God?  You are immensely and incredibly valuable to God!  But there is an enemy in this world … But God didn’t leave you blind that you couldn’t identify with who you are; and who you want to be … not that perhaps you are seeing you have been so loved all this time.  The Father is calling you a relationship with your Father God that will forever impact your world!

 

Friend, when you receive this, you will never be the same!  And, if you are the only one who reads this; if you are the only one who feels like this is for you; then you are worth the time it took to write to you by my faith … but know this, this is the love God has for you.  I am just agreeing with God to be His vessel.

 

Maybe I shouldn’t watch tv?  But I can’t unsee what I believe is going on somewhere in this world beyond my scope of seeing; but God knows.

My heart hurts to see the drama play over a child in this field (the world); as some dads don’t want / or know how to claim their child as their own.  Maybe this goes deep into their need for the Father’s Love in their life?   Some dads may not know how to love their child well with a good balance of love and discipline / correction / guidance, but friends, this is not the way our Father God is in His love for us.  God is God; not a little ‘g’ god, but a Capital G!  God is the Creator; and all things belong to Him.

 

But, How do you know if

God is your Father?

Isn’t the answer, when we believe we are a child of God through and by Jesus; and we agree with God; that we are!  God has sent His Son for the world, but not all have believed on Jesus to receive what God has done.

Does the lack of a dad

in this field (in this world)

exclude you from a Father;

absolutely not!

Yet, we are blind / until we come to Jesus and see that, in this world (the field is growing together with good seeds and evil seeds) – Jesus defines children with different fathers, but focus on JESUS IS THE GOOD SEED; and the seed of God is the Word of God.

Where are you born to live?

The kingdom of heaven …

The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

 

Let’s dig a little deeper till understanding comes in how much God has loved you!

Let’s dig a little deeper till understanding comes that GOD wants a RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU as your Father God!

Have you agreed with God that You are His Child and He loves you?

This world is God’s Field!  And, Jesus is the Good Seed God has sent unto you to believe and grow in!

 

NOTICE:  and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

Jesus defines children

with different fathers

36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

Do you remember the seed???

{Do you remember the seed of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil that God commanded Adam and Eve not to eat – that they would surely die?  This was the Seed the devil sowed!}

*****BUT GOD sowed the GOOD SEED of HOPE and of LIFE:  The Good Seed is the SON of man (Jesus), whom come SO THAT the heart of man could be Born-Again into the KINGDOM of Heaven that is WITH GOD!  All Restored and made brand new!

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

 

 

Friends,

What does the Bible say?  Have you agreed with God that God’s Word is true?  God’s Word is Truth; and from the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1).

What does the Bible say?

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”

Genesis 6:5, KJV

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Jeremiah 17:9, KJV

come forth

from the heart

“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.”

Matthew 15:18-20, KJV

“And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”

Mark 7:20-23, KJV

The heart is where the seed is planted!

Have you had the GOOD SEED SOWN IN YOUR HEART?

 

Do you know God has so loved you that He sent Jesus to sow the Good Seed in your Heart that you can be Born-Again!

But have you believed to agree with God to receive this Good Seed?

Or, will you believe the lies of the devil telling you how much you have been deceived?

You are not rejected by God!

I pray this is a good seed to you of Jesus that you will receive that

is for you – NOT against you.

God understands what the devil has done; that without an ever-present Godly dad who wants to be with his child as an example of making love believable,  that a Father God WANTS a RELATIONSHIP with YOU …  (Perhaps this is for you) …we can see the hurt in the children of God, who are searching for a place to feel like they belong.

 

And in God’s field, the devil is sneaking …

John 10:10

The thief cometh not, but for

to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

[BUT JESUS!]

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

 

Doesn’t it take a dad to make us feel like we belong, are beautiful, are strong, and have courage to do right; when the world does wrong?

I will give you time to think over that.

 

I grew up with a wonderful dad who was always there.  He knew his position in our home was to be present in our life; and his presence made an impact on all lives he interacted with; you know what I am saying about a good man of God – whether they know Jesus on that level of spiritual yet or not; that they have the good seed in them going on!

A Good Seed, even as small as a mustard seed … A Godly dad, they have that build-in provider, fixer, sustainer, corrector and strength already build into them that upholds you as you trample through this thing called the world.  A dad defends his child, because he cares; and cares to make us strong, but in a good way and a good strong.

Do you know the difference in a good strong; and a good way?  Honestly, you may have grown up learning how to be strong in a negative way??? … but there is a positive way; and Jesus is this way to grow up in HIM to be strong … as in how we learn; and for our personal benefit.  This is THE unselfish love for a child that requires nothing of a child to love them; and also demands goodness from them FOR them; and for the child’s benefit.

The father is benefited, only because of the love he has for his child.  This love!

 

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

 

This is the attribute of God,

our Father

whom we have a relationship with

through and by Jesus.

I have been blessed with a good dad; one reason, so that I can write to you about a love that I know well.  I am doubly blessed with a good husband, because I watch my husband love his children.  Sometimes, I just watch and admire the man Robert is.  He genuinely wants to be there for his children, (Like God does), both Amanda and Daniel and he cares about many others like this too.  BUT, He is a father to them, like our Father in Heaven, who we have a relationship with God through and by Jesus.

 

Does that kind of make sense?

He has guided many kids as a dad, but he is a father to his children by his blood.

Painting a picture of what God has done through the blood of Jesus and how Jesus makes us to be a child of God, by sowing this good seed into our heart.

 

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

 

As I look out into God’s field (the world belongs to God) and see all the things going on out there; far beyond the communication of my abilities; I see fatherless children being brothers to each other in areas that perhaps they have never experienced what it feels like to be loved for being the child;  … is this you?   …or have you known what it is to have belonged to a Father who loved has so loved you unconditionally?

Have you met the love of God that He has for you, through and by the Christ.

 

Daughters, know too that you are beautiful to God.  God has ordained your beauty, but not all fathers know how to love their daughters to teach them what it is to be loved by a man in this world.  Again, not every seed sown is from God; remember the devil sneaked in too and sowed that seed of wickedness into the hearts of men.  Again, why we need Jesus and the good seed when you choose who you will date.

 

Is Modesty is underestimated; why?  Is modesty being taught?  I am of that age, that is my duty to mention; and because I too want all things to go well for you; as does God; our Father’s love for you.

 

You know I am talking about Jesus, is the Good Seed; and the love God has for the world is FOR YOU!

 

You are worth my time to write to you and I hope you receive this as the love God has for you.  A Father’s Love defends His Child; He doesn’t condemn you!

Going back to how

Jesus spoke to his followers:

Those He loved he talked like this too.  Jesus breaks the parables down for us.  We are blessed when we receive this from God.

 

  • 34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
  • 36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

 

Jesus was not teaching the tares of the field; Jesus was sowing into the children of God.

Jesus was sowing into the children of God.

What does the Bible say?

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

unto you

Children, meaning we have a Father;  But only one whom is a Good Father, The One true and living God, whom we love, because He first loved us.

There’s more:

I let go of having an opinion.  And, Praise God for that!  I feel so free, since that revelation from my Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ.  It’s a Holy Spirit thing!

 

Yet, we can also look at the facts, which require no opinion.

 

Have you carefully watched some of the people out there in God’s field doing somethings Our Father God would not approve of?  But the devil sows seeds for those deceived to believe it is approved of by “a type of father”.     ?????

There are two different groups

of children we see

There are two different groups of children we see -and it is not gender nor race, but of seed.

  • 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
  • 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom;
  • [Now the separation …]  but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

    39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

    40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

receive the good seed of Jesus TODAY!

And Proclaim, I am a Child of God!

 

THAT YOU MAY LIVE AND MULTIPLY …
IS IT BY ACCIDENT THAT IT IS ALSO WRITTEN IN ACTS 2:47,
“Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

Friends, there is HOPE! … not for the devil, but for the children of God who can receive the good seed of Jesus TODAY!

 

This is the life Jesus died and is Resurrected FOR whosoever might believe; that if anyone who believes and agrees with God to REPENT and CONFESS Jesus is LORD, shall not perish, but HAVE everlasting life, with God as our Father.

Then shall the righteous shine forth

in the kingdom of their Father

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  • 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

 

to

Dear Friends,

I am up this morning to tell you that you might not have been blessed with an earthly dad who wanted to be there, but if you want to know you have a place you belong with a Father who wants to be with you PRAY in JESUS NAME; and COME to the Father; and you shall be saved from the death & sins of this world; to :) and have life in this life and forevermore.

 

know you have a place you belong with a Father who wants to be with you

PRAY

Jesus is coming Back!

These things won’t last too much longer.  The Bible says SOON, which means, when God sees His children have come to know and believe … UNTIL then, God is not willing that any of HIS children should perish.  God is waiting on you to believe in the love God has for you.

 

And, God has SO loved the world!

Never forget that!

 

Get rid of your opinions and speak the the devil, BUT JESUS IS COMING BACK!

 

you might think you have messed up too bad to be forgiven now?

Meet Jesus :)

Come to know and believe in the love God has for you!

So, I am really writing to you right now a personal letter, that you might think you have messed up too bad to be forgiven now?  Friend, God already knew you before He sent His Son Jesus to forgive you.  You are not born to be captive to the kingdoms of this world; you my friend were born to be set free by the love of the Father, who has fixed everything for you to overcome all things through and by Christ, Jesus who strengthens you.

you my friend were born to be set free by the love of the Father

  • You may have always known you were worthy of being loved, but never felt this love?
  • You may have always been beat down to never feel worthy of being loved, and always have felt this condemnation?

 

Friend, There is a Father who loves you; and His Name is God the Father, come to Him by the Name he made it easy to remember, Jesus; and you can always call out to Him.

 

Dear Friend, if you said a prayer to God, asking Jesus to come into your heart and to help you; please know Jesus puts a new body of Believers in your life too; to help you learn about this love you have never known or understood! … but remember too, the devil will do his level best to keep you from discovering this amazing Grace that God has so loved the world He sent us HOPE in Jesus.  Troubles will come at you, but friends, the Father will guide you – Jesus, had made this way, this truth and this life, by sowing the good seed in the field that belongs to God; the enemy tried to steal.

 

God is a Good Father, and will let us learn to grow in our mistakes; but help us by HIS example; This is how Jesus teaches us.

And, one thing; when you come into this new place of having a Father, know the Father will correct you as a good Father to help you see the difference He makes in your life.  He will guide you by HIS peace.

Guard your heart above all else!!!

Don’t underestimate why you need a Father!

And, can we thank Jesus together for all Jesus has done !

In closing,

Remember how Jesus teaches us?

In parables to the multitude; but to the children of God; the followers of Jesus know it is good for a child; and welcomed by God to demand of our self to know the Word of God in understanding, The Bible uses the word SEEK, and PRAY and in this story, the disciples of Jesus used the word, “Declare unto us” …. so that we can hear, listen and obey the Word of God that saves us through and by the blood Jesus shed for us.

 

Jesus took that beating FOR you.

The only question is:  Can you agree with God that you have NOT messed up too much to learn from the Father whom loves you!

 

  • 36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

 

Why does a child of God need to know this parable?

And, Notice Jesus welcomed the conversation!

  • 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
  • 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

God knows the thoughts He has for you; thoughts of good and not of evil

Painting a Picture and then I will leave you to your prayers in Jesus Name – Notice I didn’t say leave you to your thoughts!  I believe the Lord sent me to you to tell you that God wants you to agree with God’s Thoughts about you, which God knows the thoughts He has for you; thoughts of good and not of evil; God wants you to agree with HIS thoughts, because HE will never agree with yours, without you agreeing with His first.

God loves you and that is that!

  If you are like me …

Take a break and come back later…
Go get some watermelon and Pineapple!

this is where you left off & why

A Father’s Love!
What are the dangers of Disobedience?

Does a Father ever quit loving their child?  NO!

Does a Father ever quit / or give up on their child?  No!

Only God knows that someone must need to hear this, because I get it; this is long.  In my mind,  L O N G, but to God, who am I to say that this won’t just land near you at just the right time that you hear this.  And, this watermelon is in fact really good!  God sure knew what He was doing when he put the seed in the fruit to reproduce that every year we get a fresh watermelon …

and I kinda just threw that in there as the thought come to me; how great is our God!

But I believe that even God helped me think that way!  Because Jesus has sown the good seed in my heart. SEE?

 

Jesus knows the Way With God!

 

Painting a picture?

What you have always known is like being familiar with your town; Right?  You know the streets, the street lights; and can most likely know when the lights will change from red to green; Right?  You can describe to someone new to town, the best route to get to the local store; and probably tell them a shortcut and even define the time of best to travel to avoid the heavy traffic; right?  In your town, you may know to tell people, don’t go out after dark, because it is not safe?  Or, you might be able to tell someone the best place to see the stars?

 

Friends, in times past you might have even known a brotherhood of a “family” that you might have infiltrated them too, because it is the only family you have ever known?  And, they have shown you the ropes in how to survive in this world?  …but Today, my friend, if you have always kind of known and believed that you didn’t belong to that seed of surviving by the devil’s ways; then why are you staying where you don’t belong?

 

Hope in Today teaches

“how to Survive in this world through and by Jesus”.

And, asks the question,

“Why are you suffering?”

“For the sins of the world; or for the Cause of Christ Jesus?”

 

Come to Jesus and confess your sins; as you need Jesus Daily to walk with God.  Repent, which means change your mind and ask Jesus to help you mend your heart from the desires that you; and your Good Father knows will kill you in the end.  Like my dad would correct me from doing the wrong thing, a good dad will always steer you in the way you should go to have hope and life and life in abundance, because a good dad loves his child and wants to be with them.

God wants to be with you

Dear friend, God wants to be with you.  If that doesn’t make you shout, I don’t know what will?  Perhaps, I just need to say it again?  Dear Friend, God wants to be with you.  The question is, do you want to be with Him?

 

I could have written about many different things today, but this was on my heart to write this to you, because I don’t know you, but no doubt God knows you!  I just agreed with God to get up and put myself on the line of not being believed; or not being taken serious; or being judged because I would write a letter to an invisible person, such as you.

 

But you are not invisible are you?

But you are not invisible are you?  Only to my view!  God is not invisible either; may you see Him through and by His Son, Jesus.

the Holy Spirit

I noticed Luke Chapter 11 was pulled up on my phone.  Verse 13 reads to us a fitting message for this brand new Today!

13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

 

And, what was it Jesus teaches us about children who might look like a tare, walk like a tare, but never belonged there?  In other words, Jesus is the Word of God whom has come to you Today with this message that Jesus is the Truth you have been searching for.  Jesus is the way you might have never know, but Because Jesus understands you well, Jesus says, this is the way, come, walk in it!  Jesus is saying to you, why are you lost, when all you have to do is Repent and Confess Jesus is Lord?   See?  Jesus not only knows the way the life you are seeking; Jesus is the Life!

Protection …

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

Will you close your eyes and pray and ask Jesus to come into your heart at this time?  You would make God so happy that He will become your Father; in fact, is your Father who is drawing you near at this time, because God has So loved you from since before you were born.  This is evidence today that He has not left you; He has not forsaken you.  He has just been sheltered from you by the enemy of God … because the enemy knows hurting you, is the only way to hurt your Father.

BUT GOD !

I pray you had the courage to believe to agree with God to obey His call on your life to come to him and tell Him all the things He already knows about you; and that you believe He loves you so much that He gave Jesus to make this way for you; and I pray you will see the life that is before you; and never give up in Jesus Name!

 

Remember?

24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say 

 

Friends, that is why we write for you; God forbids us to root you up, just because of the things that appear to us to deceive us in who you really are (A Child of God)  ….  If you are reading this to this point, you belong to the family of God!  Now, grow in Grace and don’t be so surprised when the enemy tries to tear you down.  God’s Child knows how to stand up straight and follow the Voice of God’s Perfect Son, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit, who says, this is the way … walk in it.

 

He will you know.  But so will the voice of the enemy try to sneak in to sow doubt.

It is important to read the Word of God too.  The Holy Spirit always has agreed with the KJV in my life; and as I have grown … other versions, but they all agree with what Jesus has written on my heart.

 

Peace and Grace be with you my brother or sister in Christ!

If the enemy tosses doubt, frustration, agitation or fear at you… Just remember, just reply to the enemy:  But, JESUS IS COMING BACK!  And, I am a CHILD OF GOD!

 

I hope this is a blessing to you!

 

Love in Christ,

Karen Rowe; and The Hope in Today Ministries, Team.

 

 

It is a different Love!  Jesus!  Follow Jesus!

Love in Christ,
Karen

and the Hope in Today Ministries, Team!  We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!

IF WE CAN BE OF A HELP TO YOU, PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW…

THIS IS WHY GOD NAMED HOPE IN TODAY MINISTRIES.

IN CLOSING ALWAYS …

THE PURE IN HEART IS CHRIST!

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

THAT’S ALL FROM ME FOR TODAY!

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:

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.

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.
