SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Watch for the tendency to take on more than you can effectively handle. You cannot do everything at once. Narrow your focus and just do the next thing. Otherwise you will get scattered and overwhelmed. You can only do one step at a time and one day at a time as you move through what is required of you, says the Lord. Stay calm and maintain internal peace.
Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

June 13, 2019. Prayer is the needed action. Many involve themselves in prayer as the last resort. This is so much not what should be done. Go to prayer as soon as you realize the gravity of what is going on. Don’t try to fix the problem on your own. It is just not going to happen. Interpersonal relationships have become very entwined with actions that are evil, selfish, and vindictive. Step back. Quit thinking this can be solved personally. Pray.
John 14:12-14 (NKJV) “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” Bev Robinson
June 13, 2019. There are always going to be haters among you. You know, the type who thrive on showing animosity toward others. They criticize and belittle others unfairly and have no regard for their feelings. Demonstrate to others My genuine heartfelt love and compassion. Tests will come. Be willing to go the extra mile with those who persecute you. You will be remembered by how you react. Establish righteous behavior in the midst of turmoil.
Proverbs 15:1 (TPT) “Respond gently when you are confronted and you’ll defuse the rage of another. Responding with sharp, cutting words will only make it worse. Don’t you know that being angry can ruin the testimony of even the wisest of men?” Kevin Robinson
June 13, 2019. You can tell how well you love Me by the measure that you care for those around you. It is impossible to love Me without loving others. The inverse is also true; it is impossible to love others without loving Me. I AM LOVE and when you love, you are Me. Love serves, love prefers, love gives, love honors, love defers, love sacrifices, love smiles, love soothes, love covers. Be love.
1 Corinthians 16:14 (TPT) “Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
