"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
(Matthew 5:44 KJV)."

"For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith (Romans 12:3 KJV)."

Is the Holy Spirit Visible or Invisible? By Karen Rowe November 2, 2017

"Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you ( Philippians 4:9King James Version)."


A Song for you!  What a praise to hear a song that describes the Praise I saw as it just come forth and to me this day!  Please read, because, I believe God wants to bless you too in your praise that will spring up from within your heart that sees ...  Jesus is a powerful Name !

Making God’s Word Effective, Part I: The Beginning, by Karen Rowe Oct. 25, 2017

This was to be my small devotion for Instagram! But, instead, has grown into this 3 Part Teaching Series! 


I hope this is a blessing to you! And, like we always say growing in God’s Word, “If you get this, you will never be the same!” “And, To God be the Glory!” 



The Beginning!


Have you ever just needed to get one thing done; & then you can't find the right tool for that one simple task?  This can be a situation that the enemy can use to toss some frustration at you and to test your dedication to Him as you are growing in your relationship with God through your Bond in Christ.



Monday morning, I turned on the computer to do one simple task; and the battery to the mouse was dead! 

With an early morning, "Really?" come with it INSTEAD of frustration, an early morning revelation; and with a Hallelujah!

The difference was what I chose to do 1st!  Monday morning, I almost put that busy task 1st and before I put my priority in value of getting prepared in the Lord's word that was written to me for my Benefit!  However, praise be to God, and to His Credit for this post, I paused BEFORE I took the mouse in my hand to change the battery; and instead I looked for the Word God had waiting on me as He does each morning in God’s Book, we call the Bible!


The Verse was John 3:18!

IMMEDIATELY after I pondered what the Lord would say to me in my Daily Devotion on this particular VERSE of the Day, The Holy Spirit gave me this beginning that has been growing in revelations all week! God’s Word applies to our life every minute of every day! What a blessing God’s Word is to me!

THE SCRIPTURE:
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:18 KJV)."

THE REVELATION:
As a battery is to a mouse for the power of life to work & work well with a computer; so it is with our spirit when Christ brings life to us and the power of love that works well with God!

Our spirit life (the breath of God) “like a battery” that we had BEFORE CHRIST had died, BUT Christ Jesus has given us a NEW battery; and reborn spirit to have life and live life with God!

Life is connected to God!  Jesus connects us to life!

The next time you feel the temptation to become frustrated, remember that the Name of Jesus thru His death, burial and resurrection has supplied all your needs! Do not forget any of His benefits, but discover the blessing is coming into fellowship with God!

This just may be the perfect opportunity to ask God His Written & Living Word has waiting for you to discover that applies well in your life today! God’s Word prepares me each day to help me survive well and overcome whatever comes my way! God’s word will prepare you to overcome all things as well; and help you survive your day by grace and with peace in the manifest presence of God! Thank You Jesus!


Obedience makes God's Word effective in our life with God!

As the Lord has given this Revelation to me first to get my attention; This message, is also brought to you by the revelation as God has given it to me to give.


This message began on Monday. Yesterday, I believe the Lord gave me what I believe He called the Intro to this message, I hope this is a blessing to you as well!

Making God’s Word Effective, Part II: The INTRO, by Karen Rowe November 1, 2017

Have you ever felt the pressure of running late? And, it's like when the car in front of you is going 43 miles an hour.  The speed limit is set at 45 miles an hour.  But you really feel a great need; and want to be going 50 miles an hour.  


Is there a right or wrong in these relationships with each other as we travel along in life? 


Who determines our fellowship with God?  Now, first we must be born again to have fellowship with God!  But in that fellowship through Jesus, God is not confused about who He is.  We must draw near to God by our Obedience to the Holy Spirit, and according to the Written Word of God.


What we do to makes God’s Word Effective in our life! 

And, what we do makes God’s Word Non-Effective in our life!


Basic obedience & trust in God as simple as 1, 2, 3 ... ,but when we are trusting God for the big things, we need to be obedient in the little things.  Obedience is how God teaches us to grow in the faith He has given us a measure to grow in.


Taxes for example:

What did Jesus say?

"But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours (Matthew 17:27)."


God provides the way always in our obedience to following the example Jesus has set for us; and that the Holy Spirit teaches us in The Mind of Christ!



Love always protects.  Even IF we believe we safely can navigate around (break) a safety law that makes no logical sense to us; Now, there is grace in Christ..., but God puts us to the test of our obedience to Trusting God.  How far will we go, before we bend or break our trust in God?


Consider this question:

So you obey the law all the time, because that is just the right thing to do; and it keeps you out of trouble with the law. However, when you're in a hurry for a right reason, is there ever a time to break the law?


Think of it like this, you feel a pushing urge to go faster through this life with God, but we can’t afford to forget how much we need God! How is your fellowship with God? How is your fellowship with each other?


God gave me an awesome revelation yesterday to share with you!


So, the car in front of you is going 43, the speed limit is 45, and you feel like you need to be going at least 50 mph. However, thank God for His Grace and Mercy; Protections and Provisions, for those who love God, because when you get up the road a little further; you discover what God knew all along!


You see a biker riding along; and you say thank you Jesus that you put a pilot car in front of me! Thank you, Jesus for protecting that biker; and for protecting me! 


Then, a mile further up the road, you see a Police officer sitting and watching for the speeds of the passing cars, one of which is you; fully authorized by the State to pull you over and hold you accountable to the law! And, you say, Thank You Jesus you put a pilot car in front of me!


God’s love is like a Pilot Car! A Pilot car is often seen driving in front of a vehicle carrying a heavy / over-sized load! We are running a race in this life at times, but we need to remember life is more like a Marathon for us!  And, we can trust God to provide the way when our load seems to be heavy.  


We need to train our mind to stay in step with the Spirit of God.  God will not put more on us than we can handle!  But are we being obedient to the guiding Holy Spirit and abiding in our trust in God as 1st place in our life?


Or are we willing to bend?  Are we willing to make God's Word Non-Effective in our life?


We are to finish what Jesus has set in place for us! Love is like a pace car set in front of us to protect us from our own selfish ambition!


Envy and selfish Ambition will make God’s word Non-Effective in our life. The next time you feel pressured to rush past someone, take time to thank Jesus and notice that all time belongs to God; as God has placed time in our hands!


Will you seek God’s Word to you Today? God’s Word prepares us to be sent to make a difference in this world. And, like I always say, don’t delay, but don’t rush. Time is in God’s hand. Keep in step with Trust in God! With God by our side, no weapon can come against us to prosper!!! Do not forget any of HIS Benefits!


So, to make God’s Word Effective, stay in the manifest presence of God in Jesus Name and in the Power of the Holy Spirit! Resting in Faith that God is handling all things that we place in HIS powerful and all-knowing Hand!


Avoid running ahead of God to get to where you think you need to be at a certain time! Stay open to hearing what is obedience to God’s Spirit; as the good Lord leads you by His Voice and according to His Word.


Breathe Peace!



Do not forget any of His Benefits! 


Don’t even get angry at Satan for doing his job…he is just doing what an enemy does. Instead, devote your energy toward praising and honoring God in all that you do! God opens doors no man can open! And, God closes doors no man can close! If God is not for it, I don’t want it! If God is for it, I don’t want to miss it!


Stay in God’s presence by obeying the law of LOVE. Love God 1st with all that you are; and love others as God has first loved you! Now, sometimes, people may not understand what you do, but in your heart always value the value of people over the value of things.



In closing, how is your Effective is your Fellowship with God? How Effective is your Fellowship with people! Are you making God’s Word Effective or Non-Effective in your life?


God has made us so, as Iron sharpens Iron to work well as a Team put together in Christ! We may not always understand why that car needs to drive slow, but we also need to forgive & pray for those who speed past us rude!


Why? Because God uses people to help us through this life! We need people in our life the help us stay on course. God is a God of Unity; and there is power when we learn to get along in this life that is like a highway! One of us is always in a hurry! One of us always seems to drag behind! However, God is always on time!



If we can learn to Trust God; and balance (spirit to spirit) (we can’t balance flesh to spirit); we can learn how to Make God’s Word Effective together in Christ!  In other words, God is always the Right one!


I hope this puts the glory of God heavy on your mind to smile for Christ and take time to give God your heart and make Jesus the Lord over your life!


To the glory and honor of God, Lord Jesus, thank you for the opportunity to walk straight! Thank you Jesus that we have this opportunity that we can personally live life on earth as it is in Heaven, in the position and fellowship with God; as God puts us in the position to learn how to follow Jesus! Father God, as we develop in our growing relationship and fellowship with Your Son, Christ Jesus, put us in front of someone to lead; and in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit’s help; or behind someone to learn as they gain from their experiences in Grace. We all need a mentor as iron sharpens iron. In Jesus Name; Amen


I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to join me today!


Yesterday was quite the busy day full of “On God’s Time” destinations! Running later than I logically thought I should be for something very important to me and my family, I once again felt that pressure to hurry a little faster to make up time! Once again, God pulled my reigns in with a “Check-Check” as a bit will control the beast in a horse to be effective as a team; and I experience God's mercy, provisions and Grace abiding in my trust in God! 


I hope this is a blessing to you to grow in unity with the Mind of Christ.  According to my faith, I believe this is as this is; as the Lord has given me this experience to share.


I hope this is a blessing to you!

Making God’s Word Effective, Part III: The Teaching, by Karen Rowe November 2, 2017

Good Morning Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!


Let us begin with prayer.

Dear Father in the Name of Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit, I pray this message ministers to the heart of the person reading this right now. 


Where there may be anger, let them release it. Where there is confusion, let them see light. Where there is frustration, let there be peace. 




And, Lord Jesus, fill us all a little more with our knowledge of God’s Love active in our heart each day! 


I pray this is the beginning of a beautiful series that inspires us to take God’s Word serious and really consider our own heart with these questions: 


  1. What am I doing to make God’s Word Effective? 
  2. What am I doing to make God’s Word Non-Effective? 

God, we thank you and honor you! We know your word is powerful and effective, please help us to see  that  there are things around us that “Only You know Lord”, but that we must change about the way we think; and develop in our knowledge, and gain understanding of why and how to make God’s Word effective in our personal lives. 


Lord, I pray, as we grow in our fellowship with God; we will grow in our fellowship with each other and see God’s work flowing well in a Team. The Church. In Jesus Name, Amen.



The Lord has put a message on my heart to share that I hope you take as for you to ponder today. The message is that God has made us in such a way to live well and in good Fellowship with Him. And the message is also that God has made us in such a way, as a family in Christ, who works well together in good Fellowship, with God first; and then also with each other.


Painting a picture of what this Fellowship might look like is that like a flashlight is designed to show light where darkness is all around, it has parts and components by its Design; and by the Design, it’s function.


God is the source of life; as the flashlight is the source of light. We, together in Christ, are like that batteries that fit into the flashlight, but still it is God, who is the source that gives us the power / positive energy to work well together.


As a battery has two ends: One is a positive; and one is a negative; so, do we, as God's children have positives and negatives by our human nature; in our attitudes of how we speak, act and react / respond to different situations, as an individual in our fellowship with God, and as a family in our fellowship with each other.


Think about the positioning of batteries in a flashlight to work well?


In the Church, God has a purpose! And, together in Christ, we each make up God’s Church. But, in service and in fellowship, we always need to remember Jesus is the Head of the Church. 


In this Truth, will you take time to pray and think about the positioning of batteries in a flashlight to work well? And think of this as a picture: A picture of how God has positioned us to work well in fellowship with him; and in fellowship with each other…within the Body of Christ …as we function well, in the Church that God has made for us through His Son.



We must connect our positives to the negatives with each other in our fellowship with one another as God is this source of each positive energy that flows through us for the good of us and for the good of those around us and for the good of the light that shines in the dark areas of the world. We need to recognize opportunities that challenge our negative human weaknesses to grow in the strength and grace of God through Jesus, for the cause of Christ!



Would you like to know more? Would you like to learn who this Jesus is, who loved you enough to die for you? An invitation is extended by God Himself that Christ, the Son, Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit is given for you and to you for you to believe, so that you may have life and have it more abundantly! 


Jesus is how we become family!



Also, would you like to learn how God's Word relates to your life? And, why this is so important?



Why? Because, by our God’s own desire, image and in Christ, also His likeness, we are made with a free will to love God; as you may only understand love like this as when you love your child like God loves you! And, because once you come to know and believe in this love God has for you, you will grow in your understanding and knowledge of power of abiding with God in your life.



"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them ( 1 John 4:16 )."



Perhaps, the dichotomy of a well powered flashlight can paint a picture of the understanding to the NEED to understand the power of the love God has given us. ...As in the beginning as this series began, the mouse would not work without the life in the battery.


So is Love and Trust in God, following Jesus, who is the heart living in us of who Jesus Name is to us; and He lives in our heart as the power that helps us grow to God’s desires for us to understand about this new life through His Son!  A flashlight will not work if the batteries are placed in opposition to the way the energy is designed to flow through the batteries.  We can learn in God's word.



In other words, negatives to negatives will not produce the light. Positives to Positives may pump up pride, but not work to produce the light! Light is only produced in Christ, His strength / power to our weakness, as the power comes from God and we learn to walk in the love of Christ well together and giving God all the glory! Learning to let our Light for Christ Shine!



Let's look at some examples in the Bible to see how this applies to our everyday life in our fellowship with God, in our fellowship with each other; and the differences of how we make God's word effective in our life; or what do we do to make God's word ineffective in our life?



The first step to a Relationship with God is believing on Jesus as you draw near to God, God will draw near to you! And, as the Holy Spirit guides, guard your mind to be pure, in which pure means, “doesn’t leave you double-minded about wanting God’s help to change your mind.


“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded (James 4:8 KJV).”


As the Holy Spirit has given me this Revelation, Let's look and a couple of scriptures; and consider these questions?

  1. What are some things you do that you make God’s Word Effective?
  2. What are some things you do that you make God’s Word Non-Effective?


First: Matthew 5:44King James Version (KJV)

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;


Let’s Break this down!


Our human nature loves to respond, “Right Back!” in retaliation of the wrong that we feel deeply about. But God’s word to us tells us a different story for the benefit of our life! Instead of Retaliation -Consider your benefits in your reconciliation with God.


  1. Love -Who? Your enemies!
    1. Because you, as a child of God have a HIGH call on your life to LET your LIGHT SHINE!
  2. Bless -Who? Them that curse you!
    1. Because you, as a child of God have a HIGH call on your life to LET your LIGHT SHINE!
  3. Do good -To Who? To them that hate you!
    1. Because you, as a child of God have a HIGH call on your life to LET your LIGHT SHINE!
  4. Pray -For Who? For them which despitefully use you, and persecute you!
    1. Because you, as a child of God have a HIGH call on your life to LET your LIGHT SHINE!


Matthew 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.



The Lord has revealed an age-old problem in humanity that is still prevalent in the world. What is the standard of success? In comparisions, we see Contrasts, Associations & Judgements as our standard of equalty. But what is God really saying to us in His Word? Isn’t our success in life met by the standard of Christ!?


Pause just a minute to consider this. Envy of another’s position or fee will choke a heart from feeling grateful; that a person would fail to see / discover the opportunity that awaits right on the other side of the mountain.


SECOND: Matthew 20:8-9, KJV

The Parable of the Workers
8When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, starting with the last ones hired and moving on to the first.’ 9The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius. 10So when the original workers came, they assumed they would receive more. But each of them also received a denarius.…


Let’s break this down!

Human nature and some cultures have been promoting natural tendencies to expect more / and work less with a sense of entitlement that is self-serving.


Little prayer, when much is needed, seems to go into planning around what God has to say about our thoughts.


Is greed still loose in the world today? 


Greed is a bi-product of selfish ambition and envy. I don’t think of Christians setting out to serve greed, yet, God is so good, He shines a mirror of our heart to see in His Word, So That we can change our heart and ways of thinking; and worship God, drawing near to God and God will draw near to us.


Bi-Product by definition is, “a secondary result, unintended but inevitably produced in doing or producing something else.” 


James 3:16 teaches us to recognize that,

 “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”


Matthew 20 and Verse 11-12 goes on and paints a picture for us to evaluate our own heart!

“And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,” These men who were hired last worked only one hour,' they said, 'and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the scorching heat of the day.'”



Continued ...

The Bible highlights sin crouching at the door of our heart -ever since Cain grew jealous of what he couldn’t understand! 


God looks at the motives of our heart! 


And, God is kind enough to show us what He sees for our Benefit to know and understand!


Matthew 20 and Verse 13 tells us essentially what God had told Cain in Genesis 4 and Verses 6-7.



Matthew 20:13 “But he answered one of them, ‘Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Did you not agree with me on one denarius?…”

Genesis Chapter 4 “…6Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7"If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it."



Who do we love most? The Spirit of God, who loves us So -or the spirit of money that can drive us so? 


Are you willing to murmur against the goodman of the house? And, who gets to say who the goodman is, but only one good man, His Name is Jesus!


I sense the Lord closing this Today with this verse:


Romans 12:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)

For by the grace [of God] given to me I say to everyone of you not to think more highly of himself [and of his importance and ability] than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has apportioned to each a degree of faith [and a purpose designed for service].


We can show God how grateful we are for giving us His Son, Jesus! 


Yet, when we start to make Comparisons based on assumptions we deserve more that God has offered, and the Bible warns us that a false sense of entitlement spirit can rise. 


But God’s Word tells us a different story for the benefits of our life! 


Showing God how grateful we are is something we do to make God’s Word Effective in our life!


  1. Why would God teach us like this?
    1. Because you and I, as children of God have a HIGH call on your life to LET our LIGHT SHINE!
  2. God is set above the Norm! God is Extraordinary! God is teaching us NOT to settle and conform to the ways of the world, but to seek the greatness in our fellowship with God and the fellowship with each other by abiding in the Word of God, which is by ONE WORD, LOVE!

Matthew 22:37-40 King James Version 

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


The scriptures paint a protective picture about the vineyard that belongs to God; and the employees we are, who serve and sometimes can be lead astray to think we might ought to be entitled for more in this world. 


God is so loving to teach us about assuming; and we can learn what God is really saying to us in His word, if we will pray and open our ears to hear.


There are consequences and crippling dangers of feeling entitled, rejecting humility and thinking more highly of ourselves than we ought.


To do good to those who hate you blesses your very soul with Peace!


To bless those who curse you takes that weapon away from those who want to use it against you.


To love your enemies puts the power of God over their head like heaping convicting coals of truth in Christ to help them; and not to harm them; and this releases you from that disease of death and destruction.


God is life!!! God is LOVE!!! 


To pray for those who despitefully use you, is our assignment by God; and prayer is exactly what we all need!  


 God allows opportunities to manifest love! Challenges do come to you when you love the Lord with all your heart! But challenges are opportunities to demonstrate the power of God in your life! God knows your abilities and the measure of faith you have!


Be strong in the Lord; and be set apart from the ways of this world, be transformed by the Renewing of your mind by the MIND of CHRIST! 


Will you care enough to pray for those who don’t know they have value to God? 

Will you care enough to be patient, as you trust God?


Some will despitefully use you. Pray for them; and let your light shine for God’s Glory to be seen! Add your positives (JESUS) to their negative (need for Jesus) and pray for God to do the work! 


All we must do is what God tells us to do; then God does the work based on what we did by faith!

This is how God's power of love flows through us to make a difference in this world by shining the light of the love of Jesus who is the true light that God sent to this world!



I thank God for this good seed today that the Holy Spirit has given me to plant for you! I pray that you water this seed, because it will be God who makes it grow!


As I have had this on my mind for the last few days there are a couple of closing scriptures that rightly fit here:


One is about the difference Jesus makes in this world!


THE SCRIPTURE:
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:18 KJV)."

One is taking captive your thoughts that can get all ramped up, deceiving you with lies!


THE SCRIPTURE:

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5King James Version).”



I hope this is a blessing to you and to those around you to become a good harvest in your home, your neighborhood, your community, in our country; and in all around the world!



In Jesus name, Holy Spirit you are welcome here!

Is the Holy Spirit Visible or Invisible? By Karen Rowe November 2, 2017

How can you see the love of Christ?


God’s Word changes us from the inside out!


We should see a manifest difference in our heart, by the way we treat each other!


“For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:13 AMP).”



“‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ saith the Lord of hosts (Zechariah 4:6, KJV).”



“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 

Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Corinthians 12:9, ESV).”



If you doubt in the worth of God’s Word to you, think of the invisible power of God’s love like this!


To complete this picture of how the power of God’s Love works Wirelessly, we have painted a picture of the love of Christ in how a flashlight works well, as God is the Source and Jesus is the Truth, the Way and the Life!


Let’s paint a picture of what it looks like to connect to an invisible God by the power love and in the power of the invisible Holy Spirit!


An invisible God has given us the power of A Love That Will make a difference in this world! 


As we relate to how a wireless mouse can navigate a cursor across a computer screen to select multiple applications that can be used as a tool that has become an invisible technology that controls the world! ...How much more powerful is the Holy Spirit of God?!



A mouse needs a USB connection to the control panel of the Computer! But the connection is invisible -Where are the wires that can’t be seen?! And, yet it works! JESUS is a connection to God, who is the Creator and Maker of all things, both seen and unseen!


Will you praise God with me; as praise was worthy as I wrote this yesterday morning! As I drove speaking this message out into a written message -all this happened with an invisible typewriter! And yet, it worked!


Praise God!


Oh, the beauty of this Sunrise that I see this morning! The fog hovering over the ground; the sky lights up, and illuminates the Treetops! God did that! 


He gave this for us to see this morning! 


I can't touch that sunset, but that sunset reaches such a beautiful thing in me! 


And as I pull up to see the source of the light through the woods, I can see the power of the sun is shining through the trees that's creating the skyline to be what I see!


The fog is lifting off of the pond; and is demonstrating the visual power of warmth being drawn out of the body of the water! The fog is hovering across the field! The fog is a visual demonstration of the love and the power of God in his manifest presence in our life; when we make God's word effective in our life! 


YES! God’s love can be seen!



In closing, what are you doing today to make God's word effective in your life? What are you doing today to make God's word not effective in your life? The choices are set the before us today -Blessings and curses; or you could say consequences of rejecting a God who desires to be sought after, experienced, and seen!


I hope this inspires you to make a difference today!



Oh, my Lord, the beauty! And now, if only I had my camera! Thank you, Jesus! 


Friends, the fog is lighting up by the color of the sun right before my eyes!!! You just can't put that in words, but I just saw this; as I'm writing this post right now by speaking God’s love letter to you!


You can make God’s Love visible to a hurting world! And, God’s Word tells us how! The question is will we rise and answer that call on our life to live as set apart for the Glory of God’s Love to be seen?



Love in Christ,

Karen Rowe
