SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND BY MARSHA BURNS:
Keep your emotions and thoughts under control and refuse to allow any life issue to be overblown. Self-interest is a work of the flesh, which will block the flow of My Spirit. Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit. You will be known by the fruit you produce.
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

This has made Me happy. You have, for the most part, trusted in Me and My goodness to get you through this. More hard times are coming, but you will get through them. You will get through them in the same way you have made it through this, by trusting Me.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Bev Robinson
July 19, 2021. I know your pain is real. There are times when you have been an innocent onlooker who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. You think, “How could a loving God allow bad things to happen to innocent people?” Other times you come up short of crossing the threshold you’ve patiently waited to step over. The truth is, you live in a fallen world. Gather up courage. Move with willpower. Let Us press on together.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NLT) “That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.” Kevin Robinson
July 19, 2021. I have not given up on anyone. Have you? No one is beyond My power to save. I came for the whosoever. The whosoevers are very precious to Me. I came that all might be saved, set free and delivered. Pick up the mantle of prayer again and begin to intercede for those you have given up on. They never leave My mind night and day. I am working behind the scenes; believe that it is done.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
