SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
These times require your utmost attention to your spiritual position. The world is full of darkness and trouble, but you can make decisions to be righteous in the midst of a crooked generation. You do not have to fall prey to evil in these days, says the Lord. Be led by My Spirit in all things so that you can be an overcomer.
Philippians 2:14-16 Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
Many people are still living the storyline of their past or trying to deal with their present struggles. God is for you, and as you position yourself how He sees you, your entire life will change radically. It will be good to prepare for the long haul, so streamlining and taking on less will get you farther right now. Doug Addison
December 1,2017. Someone else is doing is what you want to be doing. That is okay as long as it doesn’t get out of hand. Observing what another is doing can spur you to excellence. But if you continually compare yourself with others, you will miss the blessing of what I have called you to do. It is good to have satisfied unsatisfaction. Satisfied unsatisfaction is being content where you are but at the same time wanting more.
Psalm 37:3-4 (NIV) “Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Bev Robinson
December 1, 2017. Sometimes it is hard to receive the dialogue between you and a trusted friend. Yet, it is precisely those conversations that allow you to see your rough edges. Though it seems difficult to swallow, it is during those discussions that I pinpoint your weaknesses. At times it is through understandings and at other times, it is through hammering and striking that you change your mindset. Appreciate your friends and their impact upon you.

December 1, 2017. I want to activate your senses for the Kingdom. There are the earthly senses: taste, touch, smell, feelings and sight. I want to activate these for the spiritual realm. You will begin to smell spiritual aromas, feel My Holy Spirit, see with spiritual eyes, heal with your touch and taste My goodness! You will be aware that you are in two realms at the same time. Begin to prophecy what you sense; the world needs to know!
Hebrews 5:14 (NASB) “But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
