SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
There has been an onslaught of wickedness released over the land, and the effect is overwhelming. This strange spiritual climate can be exhausting. Many of you have separated yourself from this evil with an invisible veil of protection and that covering has made it more difficult to see and discern spiritually. You have to press through the veil to see spiritually again, while finding your place of protection in Me.
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Break off any fear and doubt as God is strengthening you. Doug Addison

Of course they can do better if they want to, but at the time of the offense they have done the best they can. The Bible says we owe people love, but some don’t love. So with some people you need to cancel their debt by forgiving what they owe you.
Romans 13:8 (ESV) “Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.” Bev Robinson
July 17, 2020. In the midst of this pandemic and other seemingly impossible difficulties, many people are lacking hope. You’re at your wits end in trying to manage schedules, children, finances, etc. Trying to find time for yourself can be very challenging. You’re searching for anything that will give you a better grip on life and gasping for air as if you are drowning. I know your struggles are real. Breathe deeply and keep yourself fastened to My Word.
Romans 15:4 (AMPC) “For whatever was thus written in former days was written for our instruction, that by [our steadfast and patient] endurance and the encouragement [drawn] from the Scriptures we might hold fast to and cherish hope.” Kevin Robinson

If you aren’t careful you will find yourself in isolation because of being offended by this person. Even My Son forgave Peter after he denied that he even knew Him. Jesus blessed Peter with the Church after grace was extended and the rest is history!
Proverbs 17:17 (TPT) “A dear friend will love you no matter what, and a family sticks together through all kinds of trouble.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
