THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — August 17, 2009:

The faith of My people, says the Lord, must be tested in the refining fires of My purposes. These last days will require strong faith, so begin now to strengthen your faith, live in faith, and walk in faith, for the enemy’s assault will ever increase until the end. Begin to live by My faith. Be brave, be strong and fight the good fight of faith. Victory will come to those who live in faith.

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, our faith.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 17, 2009:

I had a vision of us all standing in a dark room, knowing that others were there, but separated and isolated by the darkness and the trouble we’ve endured. No one was able to see anyone else, caring vaguely about what others might be going through, but engulfed and overwhelmed by the darkness of our own trials and tribulation. We would only occasionally reach out to touch someone or try to call out for help, but quickly retreated, silenced by our self-absorption. Will we allow the darkness to persist, or will we position ourselves in Christ where there is life and light? The choice is ours.

Acts 17:28 … in Him we live and move and have our being.

One may have begun one’s time by praising the Lord with song.  One began to thank Him for the many things that He has done in one’s life and in the lives of others.  One thanked Him for the saints.  One may have gone blank after a while not knowing what else to thank Him for.  It may have been weird.  One thought that maybe the Lord has cleared one’s thoughts for a reason.  One began to use the remaining time to pray in tongues.  One may have opened one’s eyes.

One may have checked the time.  It may have been 4:05 AM.  One may have checked it occasionally while praying in tongues.  One got up and walked around the bathroom.  One sat back down.  One pulled up one’s left pant leg.  One noticed that there was only one fleabite on one’s leg.  One quickly turned one’s leg around and could not find any other bites.  There may not have been any evidence of the other bites.  One looked at one’s arms and elbows.  Nothing.  One used to have bites one’s right arm, or maybe it was the left.  One had bites on one’s leg or legs.  They are gone, totally healed.  This is impossible for them to be totally gone this quickly.  It’s only been a week or more since the incidents occurred.

One began to give Jesus thumbs up and lifted the roof to Jesus while still praying in tongues.  When one may have finished at 4:30 AM, one thanked Him for healing one’s bites.  One may have noticed one’s tooth feels better also; it was beginning to hurt a little.  One may have prayed for it before going into the bathroom.  It may be the wisdom tooth in the back, top, right hand side.  Thank you Jesus!
