Proverbs 4:20-22 (NLT) “My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to My Words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Many of you are on the absolute threshold of a greater understanding of My kingdom, which is necessary in developing a genuine relationship with Me, says the Lord. But, you must push past spiritual laziness that becomes an anchor to your soul that restricts curiosity. It will take desire and great effort to overcome complacency, but the end of that journey will be worth your time.
Proverbs 15:19 The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns, but the way of the upright is a highway.
If you are not clear about what you want, how would you ever know if you obtained it? You need to get as clear as you can on what God is speaking to you and then “attend to it” by taking action. It will help to get around people who are positive and on the same path. Doug Addison

When you were a newborn baby, most likely you were surrounded by warmth, tenderness, comfort, and love. So why doesn’t the world treat you anything like this when you’re born again? A newborn baby is welcomed by the world into which it’s born. At your first birth, you were born into this world; but at your second birth you were born into the Kingdom of Heaven. So don’t expect this world to pamper you, cherish you, be gentle, bless you, or even accept you. It doesn’t have to. If you were of this world, the world would love its own, but you were born into heaven.
Therefore, seek not your love, blessing, and acceptance from earth. Seek your pampering, comfort, warmth, tenderness, and acceptance from heaven. In fact, whenever this world rejects you, disappoints you, and hurts you, rejoice and be glad. It’s a confirmation that you’re not its child and you belong to another kingdom. So seek your love and blessing not from this world, but from your everlasting kingdom, the Kingdom of Heaven to which you were born into…because you are heaven’s baby.
Seek your acceptance, identity, and love not from this world, but from your Heavenly Father who will freely give it to you today.
Scripture: 1 John 5:1
January 17, 2018. Don’t allow yourself to get hopeless. There is a solution to the problem going on. You just haven’t found it. Think about who I am and what I do. I am the God of all and will never leave or forsake you. Keep praying. Keep believing. Keep your thoughts on the good that is and will come. I have made it where you don’t have to worry about anything. Roll it all over on Me and be at peace.
Psalm 37:5 (AMP) “Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.” Bev Robinson

You move about effortlessly with grace and poise as a rightful heir of Mine.
Proverbs 22:1 (NLT) “Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold.” Kevin Robinson
