SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
I am looking for those who will become true seekers in My kingdom. I am searching throughout the earth to see who desires to come into My presence. You have to take the first small step in My direction, and I will take a giant step to meet with you, says the Lord. You must believe that I exist and that I care for you. Then, you can come.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
Don’t be discouraged if those around you don’t understand what God is saying. Doug Addison
January 12, 2018. Reason with excellence. Reason is good. Do it with excellence. Emotion is also good, but for now cultivate reason. I am the God of both reason and emotion. Let your mind stay on a subject to think it through. Don’t multitask so much that you can’t maintain a solid line of reasoning. Jumping around a lot with a multitude of thoughts is not so good for your brain health. I have given you a good mind. Use it well.
Mark 12:28-30 (NKJV) “Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?” Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.” Bev Robinson

Many times the wake left behind from those who choose to separate from discord is pain that’s hard to comprehend. The same can be said about certain members of the Body of Christ. People definitely receive restorative therapy in diverse ways. Be patient. Let healing take its proper course. Time and empathy quite often are the best remedy.
Psalm 34:18-19 (NLT) “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.” Kevin Robinson
January 12, 2018. All My words are spoken with verve! Passion-laced are My Scriptures. I am the original Promise Keeper. When you read My Word, know that the words come with My backing and passion. When you believe these words, then righteousness is accounted to you. When times look bleak, be reminded of your father Abraham. He believed against all odds and saw My promises fulfilled. Dust off the prophetic words that have not come to pass and believe again.
James 2: 23 (NKJV) “And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
