SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND BY MARSHA BURNS:
Do not confuse discernment with judgment. Discernment is a work of the Spirit to distinguish between right and wrong, good and evil. Judgment stems from the human nature and is an evaluation by comparison, which often leads to condemnation. Set your heart to live and walk in the Spirit and treat others as you want to be treated.
Matthew 7:1-3 Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?

What will I find when I return to the earth? Will I find you clutching your earthly pleasures? Will I find you have fallen away from Me because of the chaos and lawlessness? Will I find any of you watching and praying? Will I find any belief in Me on the earth at all?
Many of My children have misplaced belief. You believe in Me only if I keep you in comforts. You believe in Me only if you get all you are praying for. You believe in Me only if I grant all you desire. This is not who I am. If you would study My Word, you would know Me, yet you do not. So many of you will make time for anyone except Me. You are placing your belief in a make-believe God that grants all your wishes and I am not He.
In these times upon you, you will realize the error that is. You will soon realize the true cost of your neglect of your walk with Me as you will walk in tribulations that you might be refined and many of you will not be able to endure these. If only you had obeyed Me, I would have spared you that suffering.
My children, I have told you what you need to know in My Holy Word, yet you choose the pleasures and excitements of the world over Me, time and time again. Do not think there will be no consequence for this. All you can ever need is found in My Word and when My Word is taken from you (outlawed), you will realize what you have done.
And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it and worshippeth it and prayeth unto it and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god. 18 They have not known nor understood: for He hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. 19 And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; I have roasted flesh and eaten it: and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
And He cometh unto the disciples and findeth them asleep and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with Me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

This has been a hard time I know. A better time is on its way. Much is going on in your life right now. That is the way it is with many of your family and friends. Do not grow weary in praying for them.
Ephesians 6:18 “ With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.” Bev Robinson
December 18, 2021. I am the reason for this season. I love that you give and give and give during this time. You have been caught up in My giving heart. Don’t let others put down this season – they have been deceived. All around the world, people are celebrating the birth of My Son, so enjoy the festivities. The whole world is lit up for the Light of the World. Those who don’t participate really don’t understand the “Joy to the World”!
John 8:12 “Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, ‘I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life.’ ” Robin Robinson Bohlin
