SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Disappointment comes when your expectations are not fulfilled. Take every day as it comes without presumption. Your idea of how things should be will not change reality. Save yourself some grief by accepting your current position while trusting that I am with you to lead you through every difficult and dark valley, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.
Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Staying focused on what the Lord has spoken to you will help you get through this time. Doug Addison
July 2, 2019. It was your mistake, not intentional but nevertheless a mistake. You thought, this is going to be bad or good; there is no other option. It isn’t going to be bad, because there is no cause for the enemy to invade the action. So prepare yourself for it to be completely and thoroughly good. Observe and listen. Expect the best and watch what happens. This needs to play out. The circumstances will have to be reckoned with.
Romans 8:29 (MSG) “God knew what He was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love Him along the same lines as the life of His Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity He restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in Him.” Bev Robinson
July 2, 2019. It is vital to those who surround you for you to establish and maintain a spirit of positivism. With a world full of naysayer’s, be the humble bastion for My truth, My righteousness and My justice. Speak up for those who are bombarded with negativity and pessimism. You have been equipped to battle in the heavens through prayer, intercession and simple common sense. Be the beacon of light which draws people to Me. Live life large.
Matthew 5:15-16 (NOG) “No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. Instead, everyone who lights a lamp puts it on a lamp stand. Then its light shines on everyone in the house. In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven.” Kevin Robinson
July 2, 2019. You have a job to do. You know that you do and you know what the job is. I have called you to this and you have chosen to accept this task and accomplish it. There are, however, some nuisances that are distractions to you that hinder the completion. Recognize those distractions and continue to pursue the task that I have put before you. Those distractions are only temporary, but the task before you is long term.
Song of Songs 2:15 (NASB) “Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that are ruining the vineyards, while our vineyards are in blossom.” Jonas Bohlin
