SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In a visionary moment I could perceive the darkness of the world closing in so as to obliterate or choke out the light of God. I heard the instruction of the Lord that it is necessary to push back the darkness with our belief and the understanding of His Word. It is imperative that we walk in the light of truth. To not walk in light is to slip into obscurity and gloom. We must set ourselves to watch and be vigilant to keep ourselves in the safety of His presence.
2 Corinthians 4:6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

July 20, 2020. You have had a setback. Do not let it discourage you. It is minor and will soon pass. Keep your mind focused on the major goal ahead. You will get there. Set your face like flint. Keep your mind on Jesus. He did not let anything keep Him from the work set before Him. Keeping your mind on Him gets it off you and your challenge. Before you know it, you will reach your goal.
Isaiah 50:7 (NKJV) “For the Lord GOD will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint and I know that I will not be ashamed.” Bev Robinson
July 20, 2020. Many times when you are in the midst of accomplishing tasks and simply living life you wonder, “how am I doing?” Well, here is your status report. You are handling the crisis conditions better than most. During these last four months or so, you have rolled with the restrictions and setbacks. Yielding isn’t always easy, but you have kept a cool mindset. You haven’t overreacted and you have been cooperative. Bravo.

July 20, 2020. You have no idea who you are! When I say that you are created in My image – that’s no joke! Jesus became the atonement for sin, catapulting you back to your original state before sin! You have equal access to Me just like Jesus. Let me direct you in My God adventures – you won’t be sorry. I have enough time, strength, stamina and finances for anything I tell you to do. Be bold and go for it!
