SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
You must not take the attitudes and motivations of those around you seriously. They are dealing with their own stuff, which has very little to do with you. Steer clear and do your best to be righteous despite your environment. Do not take things too personally, says the Lord, stay focused spiritually.
Proverbs 2:8-9 8 He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path.

September 20, 2018. You know disappointing news about a local church. The church is My bride. When you love Me, also love My bride. You are a part of My bride. Pray immediately that this situation will turn into a blessing. My bride is being attacked viciously by its main adversary, Satan. Stand in the gap. Pray and speak blessings on all who are involved. Some made good choices and some made bad ones. It doesn’t matter who did what. Speak blessings.
Ephesians 5:26-27 (NKJV) “that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the Word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.” Bev Robinson
September 20, 2018. Keep your life plain and simple. Free yourself from imbalanced obligations. Forgive people who have intruded or implicated themselves against you. Do all you can to maintain proper relationships with everyone with whom you have interaction. Let your actions line up with the words you speak. Have integrity when no one is observing you. Live a God-fearing, sanctified and righteous lifestyle in everything you do. You are My disciple. Maintain godliness.
1 Peter 1:14-16 (NIV) “As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” Kevin Robinson
September 20, 2018. There have been days filled with thoughts that are dry and dusty. You did not expect that to be true. There have been days when there was an abundance of the presence of My Spirit. I have more for you than you could ever imagine. My presence flowing from you is exactly what that person needs…you know the person to whom I refer. Go, and from deep within you spread the fullness of Me everywhere.
John 7:38 (NASB) “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'” Jonas Bohlin
