SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Examine yourself to see if your thought pattern is becoming a habit and setting a trend that is not consistent with My Word or purposes. Do not depart from My will for your life, but rather set a course that will draw you closer to Me, says the Lord. It is My will that you become One with Me in thought, action and purpose–always seeking truth and righteousness.
John 17:22-23 “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
You will need to take time to discern all the new choices coming. Doug Addison
November 1, 2018. Good news is coming. You have hoped the news would be good, and soon you will know for sure. You have needed this news to keep walking on the track you are on. You have wanted for a particular item to be announced in this good news. And you will see that it is there. Someone you know will announce this good news, so it is something you can count on. Get your heart ready. Be blessed.
Proverbs 25:25 (ESV) “Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.” Bev Robinson
November 1, 2018. You have been around people who refuse to accept kudos. How about those who are unwilling to even acknowledge any type of compliment? I have given you gifts for the purpose of blessing others within the Body of Christ. At Christmas time or a birthday celebration, when you received gifts or greeting cards, didn’t you open them to see what was inside? I have given you gifts. Put them into action. Love is a verb.
Ephesians 4:11-12 (AMPC) “And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church).” Kevin Robinson
November 1, 2018. There is nothing more important in your life than relationships. I designed you to be in relationship with others. Your relationship with Me is THE most important thing in your life and the relationship with friends and family should resemble that. Sin, offense, unforgiveness and judgment hinders and destroys relationships, but repentance is a short trip to restoration with Me and with others. Take your stand today. Your relationship with Me and with others is worth it!
Matthew 22:37-40 (NASB) “And He said to him, ” ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ “This is the great and foremost commandment. “The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ “On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” Jonas Bohlin
