SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND BY MARSHA BURNS:
You are the author of the song of your soul; It is your choice to stay broken or to be made whole. You can express yourself through love or with hate; Decide to reconcile or continue the debate. Allow circumstances to dictate your mood, Or rise up in belief and receive your reward. Life and death is in the power of the tongue; Choose your words carefully for the song has begun.
Psalm 40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth—Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear and will trust in the Lord.

For I will say unto you this day, that those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will run and now grow weary, they will walk and will not faint and they will soar as on the wings of the eagles. Those who honor Me and honor My holy day, My Sabbath, shall prevail and ride on the high places and shall not be caught up in the worldliness and ungodliness that is out there in the world. For I have made you not of this world, but of My world and the world to come.

All of the sacrifices of animals for sin and various offerings in the ancient days of Israel are a mystery to you. There is purpose in it all even though to you it is strange. All of this prepares and points to the coming of Jesus. He has established you in freedom through His life, death and resurrection.
1 Corinthians 6:12 (AMP) “Everything is permissible (allowable and lawful) for me; but not all things are helpful (good for me to do, expedient and profitable when considered with other things). Everything is lawful for me, but I will not become the slave of anything or be brought under its power.” Bev Robinson

Your five senses play a crucial role in leading you astray and headlong into enticement(s). Yielding to your new creation spiritual senses produces so many greater rewards than short-lived temporary satisfaction. Determination through disciplined resolve reaps rewards. Develop your spiritual strength and stamina through heartfelt repetitive muscle memory from the fruit of self-control. Cultivate and reinforce your mind to say NO!
1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation He will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” Kevin Robinson
July 16, 2021. It is time to get your life in order. How can you be ready in an instant to do something if you have not first put your own life and schedule in order? I need you to be ready for that call, be ready when the S.O.S. goes out! This is not law, but it is certainly wisdom. Wisdom says be to ordered and ready to respond. The world looks to the children of light to be ready.
John 12:36a (NIV) “Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
