SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
There are some things that you need to settle in your own heart. Otherwise, they will become issues that cause dread and worry, which will keep you from relationship with Me. Remember that I know the beginning from the end of all things and your worry will not change a thing. Keep yourself in the Spirit and in peace.
Matthew 6:25-27 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

July 2, 2020. Keep on going in the direction you are headed. You have just begun doing again what you are doing now — seeking Me, hearing Me and promptly doing what I say. Look back and you will already see results of your efforts. This is so simple, yet many people don’t get it or at least don’t stay with it. They tend to go back to ways the world operates, thinking up their best ideas. Keep going My way.
James 3:17-18 (NASB) “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.” Bev Robinson
July 2, 2020. Does the thought or even contact with certain individuals cause you to recoil and grimace in pain? If you were to see them, would you walk on the other side of the street, turn around or even hide behind some object? Know this, hurt people hurt people. I know the pain is real. I encourage you to face your fears head on. Forgiveness is My restoration remedy. Choose to apply My healing salve to deep seated wounds.
Ephesians 4:31-32 (NKJV) “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Kevin Robinson
July 2, 2020. Your words are very important. Your words will either allow your access to an individual’s life or they will close the door to it. Let your words be words of blessing, peace and truth. Let the words you say be spoken in true love, not just correction. In your world today, the necessity of positive, uplifting words has never been more evident. Allow your words to be a bridge to those around you and not a roadblock.
James 3:9-10 (NASB) “With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.” Jonas Bohlin
