SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
This is a time when you will reap what you have sown over the past several years. Many of you will come into an extraordinary season of reward for your faithfulness to Me, while others will reap the unfortunate harvest of spiritual carelessness. For those who have been diligent to do My will it will be a time of great abundance and joy, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
This is a time to pull back, to pray and prepare for what is coming. Doug Addison
July 26, 2018. There are many choices. You aren’t sure which one to follow. Because some things seem not to be working well, you feel like throwing everything to the wind and doing what you want. This kind of thinking will lead you down the wrong path. Don’t give up seeking Me. I always know what is best for you. I know you better than you know yourself. It feels like a dark time right now, but keep trusting Me.
Psalm 139:10-12 (NASB) “Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night, “Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.” Bev Robinson
July 26, 2018. It truly breaks My heart to say this, but many people around you, and yourself included, feel inconsequential and worthless. Because of certain events and treatment, or lack thereof, many have the sense that their life lacks hope of any sort. Hitherto, brings the despair that ushers in thoughts of self-harm and suicide. Thoughts like these are real and need acknowledgement. Ask Me for help in dealing with agony. I can help you. Let Me in.
Psalm 34:18 (NOG) “Yahweh is near to those whose hearts are humble. He saves those whose spirits are crushed.” Kevin Robinson
July 26, 2018. I see that you are in unrest. I see the evidence of unrest in your body, in your emotions and in your spirit. That unrest affects what you do, what you say and what you believe. I have created something that will help your unrest…rest. When you are at unrest physically, you rest. Choose to rest in Me when you find yourself in spiritual and emotional unrest. That rest comes by way of trusting Me.
Matthew 11:28-30 (NASB) “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Jonas Bohlin
