SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Save yourself the agony of disappointment and discouragement by trusting that I will bring you through every challenge. Being overwhelmed will not help you, but faith will. Try to maintain a positive attitude in the face of negative circumstances. Look to Me for help and direction, says the Lord.
Psalm 61:2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
You are going to get blessed for all the sacrifices you have been making. Doug Addison
December 13, 2018. You are sometimes like cut straw in the wind, here today and gone tomorrow. No one knows which way the wind blows, but you can see its effects. You sometimes feel like your life is like green grass that quickly fades under the sun’s relentless heat. But the truth is, you are more like a palm tree which gives ample shade and remains standing long after the hurricanes and windstorms of life have passed. Keep yourself deep-rooted in Me.
Colossians 2:7 (TPT) “Your spiritual roots go deeply into His life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to Him!” Kevin Robinson
December 13, 2018. You feel like you have disappointed Me and let Me down. You believe a lie from the enemy that you do not measure up. When you made Me Lord of your life, the days of your inferiority were over. I created you to be the vessel through which My character is displayed on the earth. My Spirit lives within you and I will always approve of you. Live your life with My assurance of that.
Romans 4:2-3 (GW) “If Abraham had God’s approval because of something he did, he would have had a reason to brag. But he could not brag to God about it. What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and that faith was regarded by God to be His approval of Abraham.” Jonas Bohlin
