SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
One phase of your life is coming to an end, and you are in preparation for the next series of events. Be sensitive to My leading and make every step be one with Me in Spirit. The days following can be either depressing or exhilarating. It will depend on the choices you make as you go forward. Set your expectation, your belief and your gaze on Me and I will bring you through in victory.
Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our belief, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

There is a shortcut to get to where you are going, but it will not be visible until you start. It will cut down your time considerably This is good because the initial way was a bit difficult. The new way is better.
Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV) “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Bev Robinson
August 27, 2020. Even though it seems obvious to the naked eye, there is a fine line between acceptance and tolerance. Just because you see My tender loving kindness demonstrated upon multiple levels to you and others, I do not want you to think I am lenient to every whim because of My limitless grace. Do I allow freedoms across many spectrums? Yes. However, there are consequences to choices you make. Everything is subject to My supreme governance. Love like Me.
Romans 2:4 (TPT) “Do the riches of his extraordinary kindness make you take Him for granted and despise Him? Haven’t you experienced how kind and understanding He has been to you? Don’t mistake His tolerance for acceptance. Do you realize that all the wealth of His extravagant kindness[a] is meant to melt your heart and lead you into repentance?” Kevin Robinson
August 27, 2020. I have said to you — go into the highways and byways and bring the lost to Me. You are My ambassador and My agent for change on the earth. I have chosen to use YOU! Will you open the door to My world that you are part of? In My world no one is rejected except those who reject Me. Reach out to those around you with love and acceptance. Be My earthly agent of acceptance!
1 Peter 3:8-9 (NASB) “To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.” Jonas Bohlin
