SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Put aside all trepidation. Even though you cannot know the future you can know Me, and I hold the future. Draw near. Come into the security of My presence. Whenever you feel afraid trust in Me, says the Lord. When you seek Me, you will find Me and abide in peace. I am your protection.
Psalm 91:2-5 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day.

December 28, 2018. During this Christmas season, you overheard someone say something that has bothered you. A long time friend made a “poor me” statement about himself. Don’t do that. Train your attitude to be thankful and joyful all the time. Even when life seems to cave in on you, look for something quickly about which you can be thankful. Focus your mind on goodness. Set up camp on thankful and merriment mountain. Make a supreme effort to do this. Your health and life depends on it.
Proverbs 17:22 (ESV) “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Bev Robinson
December 28, 2018. You’ve grown accustomed to encountering obstacle after obstacle. Quite often you’ve had so many of these occurrences that you don’t even recognize their appearance because they happen so frequently. I applaud you for pressing through the hardships and straightforwardly facing the difficulties. Though you may not understand the meaning of why you’re experiencing these troubles, in time you will see their value and gain knowledge and insight to help others. There is a purpose behind it.
James 1:12 (NLT) “God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.” Kevin Robinson
December 28, 2018. When you become a true seeker of Me, then delightful life comes. I am not a Father who breaks His promise; I am not one who teases or provokes. You have not because you ask not. When you ask, you trust and when you trust, your heart becomes peaceful. Go ahead and ask and let Me show you all My benefits. I really do want you to have Heaven on earth. That is My will.
John 16:23-24 (NASB) “In that day you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you. Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
