SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Regardless of what you are going through, make every effort to maintain a positive outlook. Look beyond temporary hardships to know that I am with you to give you the wisdom and help that you need. The things you endure at this time will actually strengthen your resolve if you allow it, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 4:8-10 We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed-always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
Breaking through to something new is really close and will be easy as things are starting to line up. Doug Addison
January 30, 2019. Fill your mind with joyful things. Bless anyone you can. Look for pretty things. Look for ways to help someone else. Call someone you can encourage. Be sure you are taking time to rest. These are the kinds of things that build you up almost without you even realizing it. These things do not tear you down. You have been in a bit of a hole in the last little bit. You want to be going up not down.
Psalm 18:33 (AMP) “He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.” Bev Robinson
January 30, 2019. Let me encourage you to rise up and above all the hullabaloo and hubbub this world and all of its many enticements has to offer. You’re experiencing information overload. You were not designed to carry as much burden as you are carrying. I’m not saying you are feeble, but your cares and concerns are taking their toll. Humble yourself and relinquish a portion of your encumbrances over to me and others. Let Me be your burden bearer.
Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT) “Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Kevin Robinson
January 30, 2019. It is time now to be released from the struggle and the pain. In order to fulfill My plan in your life, you must lay this burden down. This situation may not be changing, but your response to it CAN change. Receive the peace that guards your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. Know that the Anointed One endured the cross with joy because of the end result. Choose to walk in peace and joy.
Hebrews 12:2b (TPT) “His example is this: Because His heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be His, He endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!” Robin Robinson Bohlin
