SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
For those of you whose resources have been stretched and over extended, you need to set yourself to conserve and recuperate. Measure carefully what you are actually capable of so that you do not go beyond your strength or ability. Cast your cares on Me and trust that I will renew your vitality, says the Lord.
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Things are coming back to you that you had to let go of previously. Doug Addison
May 14, 2019. What you are seeing is someone on the precipice of making a decision. This one is wading through a lot of things from the past. They are strong in their decision making. They want others to know of the problem, not what they are doing, but what someone else involved in the problem is doing. Deep down they know they know the right thing to do, but up until now they are flirting with danger. Pray.
Ephesians 6:16-18 (ESV) “In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.” Bev Robinson

Many times problems can be resolved before a crisis occurs if effort is made to try to understand the state of affairs. Quite often, people just want to be heard. They truly have your best interests in mind. You may have to backtrack some to rectify your prior reactions. Pursue peace whenever possible and make amends quickly.

May 14, 2019. I have instructed you to give honor to whom honor is due. I believe that many times you misunderstand what it means to honor. If you believe a person is worthy of honor then in your mind you have esteem, respect and appreciation for that person. In My Kingdom the thought of honor will bring you to a place of action. The thought of true honor will bring you to a place of obedience to the one you honor.
1 Samuel 2:30 (NASB) “Therefore the LORD God of Israel declares, ‘I did indeed say that your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever’; but now the LORD declares, ‘Far be it from Me-for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be lightly esteemed.” Jonas Bohlin
