SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 6, 2010:

“I am bringing you into alignment on every level. It is My will to position you properly so that My purposes can be accomplished and My kingdom established. You may not think that you, as an individual, have much to do with destiny. But, everything you think, say, or do is vitally important to the spiritual condition of your sphere of influence. Be diligent to demonstrate the kingdom.”

“You have been repositioned as you have had to let go of many things that once meant everything too you. This has been for the purpose of establishing you in greater spiritual reality with renewed strength and vitality. You have stepped into a time of being reconnected to your spiritual roots yet with refreshing revelation.”

“The days ahead will be filled with My glory in the practical and commonplace things of life as you maintain awareness and see My manifest presence in unexpected ways. Walk in the Spirit and be available.”

“Events that left you reeling and trying to find stability and balance will now truly become a thing of the past as you begin to realize how insignificant it all was as compared with eternity and destiny. The power of My healing and restoration will become evident as you are able to release those who caused you pain. Forgiveness is essential to redemption.”

“I have established an altar in the heavenlies, in the realm of the Spirit, where you can bring all that concerns you, things you can do nothing about, and things you have absolutely no control over. Leave them with Me and release your fear and anxiety. Nothing is impossible with Me. Come into that place of peace and rest, trusting Me in all things.”

“You feel like you’ve been cut off, but this cutting off has only been from those things that needed to be put aside at this time. You are like a tree that has been cut off and banded so that your spiritual roots could go deeper and you could become stronger. Let your roots go deeper in the Word, in revelation, and relationship to Me. The day of release will come in due season.”

“There are times when you feel totally disconnected and alone. This is because the enemy of your soul has lied to you and tried to isolate and weaken you. But, that is not My design or plan for you. Now is the time to reconnect spiritually, first to Me, and then to those who are Mine. Take the time and make the effort to re-establish yourself in divine connections and kingdom purpose.”

“Allow Me to take you forward inch by inch, step by step, without fear or worry. I am with you and will open doors that no man can shut and to shut doors that no man can open. Trust Me with your future. I have already proven to you over and over again that I alone am your place of security, says the Lord.”

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Proverbs 11.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Lord for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

If You Can Receive It, I Am Doing A New Work In You

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 24, 2010:

You must not overlook the details of life’s requirements by focusing on the big picture and the goal. By the same token, you cannot lose vision and purpose by paying too much attention to the details. It is like looking at an entire landscape, seeing both near and far. You can see where you are going, but you have to walk the path step by step to get there. I bring this to you as spiritual perspective, My people, because there are those who are near-sighted and those who are far sighted. There needs to be a balance between the parts and the whole, and if you can receive it, I am doing that work in you. It is you in the Kingdom; I have given you entrance, but you must work it out in your individual circumstances. I am with you to help you do that, says the Lord.

Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

One may have awakened before midnight and decided to do some work.  Around 2:00 AM, one may have tried to go back to sleep.  One eventually got up after a while.  One knew that one would pay dearly for not getting enough rest before one’s prayer time with Jesus.

One may have looked at the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have taken it to heart.  There may be something in one’s life that may take all one’s time that things such as this blog may have taken a back seat.  One may have noticed that one may be late or have trouble getting up in the morning for one special time with Jesus lately because one may be so tired from driving oneself to get some time sensitive work done.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time but may have been engrossed in thought.  One finally snapped out of it and it may have been 3:33 AM.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 58.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have gotten really tired while in one’s prayer closet.  One may have tried to get a little rest so that one could concentrate.

Upon leaving one’s prayer closet, one may have thought to drink a glass of orange juice to pick one up.  After drinking the juice, one may have felt rejuvenated and prayed for the outstanding prayer requests at the particular website.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.  Thank you Lord for your help by strengthening one and getting one through the prayer requests.

I Am Your Peace, Says The Lord

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 16, 2009:

Watch for the enemy to try to get you off-balance by pulling you in too many directions. This will happen either physically by having too much to do or mentally and emotionally. His plan is to make you feel scattered in order to dissipate your energy. Rise up against this attack and refuse to allow it to have any power over you. You can do this by deliberately spending quality time in quiet contemplation of My Word to regain serenity and balance. I am your peace, says the Lord.

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

One may have awakened this morning at 3:00 AM and reset one’s alarm.  The alarm may have gone off at 3:20 AM and one may have just lain there for a while.  One finally got up and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  It may have been past one’s start time for meeting with Jesus.  One may have been late and had no excuse.  One may have asked the Lord to forgive one for selfishness.

One began one’s special time by praising the Lord this morning with songs of praise.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.  One prayed for the Lord to lead one to a passage of scripture and one may have been led to Psalms 100.

One left one’s prayer closet at 4:30 AM.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have felt a little pain from where one’s tooth had been pulled on Monday.  One may not have had to take any medication since having one’s tooth pulled.  Thank you Jesus!

When the dentist began to pull one’s tooth.  One may have stopped the dentist.  One may have said that one felt pain.  The dentist may have  given one several shots directly to the area and gum line surrounding the tooth.  The dentist may have begun to work on extracting the tooth.  One may have stopped them again.  One may have told the dentist that one felt pain in the root area of the tooth.  The dentist may have looked at the x-ray and then said that there was infection in the tooth and the medicine (possibly novocaine) would be ineffective in that area.  One may have said, “Well, I will just have to endure it.”

The dentist began the process again.  One began praying in one’s heart to the Lord for Him to heal the infection and take away the pain.  The pain went away so quickly that one may not be sure when it happened.  It may have been seconds.  All one may remember is that the process went smoothly from that point on.  Thank you Jesus!

The answer to one’s dilemma was to get one’s tooth pulled.  One may have been praying for divine intervention.  This tooth had been plaguing one since July 2008.  It may have been a root canal gone bad.  The tooth began to rot underneath the crown.  The crown eventually came off and the decaying tooth was exposed.

It’s all paid in full and one may have a zero balance.  One may now have insurance through an unexpected source.  Thank you Jesus!  One may have written previously in one’s blogs that one did not have any insurance and the place that one had sought to get help from, the Lord was leading one not to go through with it.

Looking back, the Lord was truly leading one.  The health insurance may not have come through the avenue that one had originally pursued.   The Lord led one at one’s last appointment with the undesired agency to leave and not return.  One may have simply missed one’s next appointment, purposely.  One may have pursued an easier avenue to the same insurance source, thinking that maybe the Lord wanted one to do it another way.  The paper work has been in for some time and one’s case may still be pending for insurance through this source.  This may not not mean that this source will not become available to one in the future.  It was the avenue that one was pursuing at that time that Jesus was opposed to.  Also, Jesus knowing all things, had a plan.

While at the dental office, one may have met an older Christian woman.  We may have shared testimonies and had a good time talking about Jesus in that place.

One may have started out with a testimony where the Lord healed one from burns on one’s right forearm from hot scalding water that occurred recently.  The nipple on a bottle may have begun to inflate.  One thought one could quickly unscrew the bottle cap to release the pressure from inside the bottle.  The nipple exploded and hot water shot everywhere.

One may not have been aware that one had been burned initially.  One may have felt a stinging sensation on one’s right forearm.  One may have looked at it and could see the patches of red where the water had hit one.

One may have showed one’s arm to one’s children while believing that Jesus would heal it.  The Lord has healed one of accidental burns in the past.  One may have prayed for one’s arm, then ran cold water over it and went to bed.  One may not remember feeling any more pain shortly after putting it under the cold water.  The next morning one’s arm was fine and there was no sign of ever being burned.  When one showered there was no pain at all.  Thank you Jesus!

The older christian women may have shared that their son had been murdered in the past.  For many years they may have carried the hurt with them.  One day the Lord spoke to the individual and said, “Let him go, he’s Mine, he belonged to Me.”  They said that they never thought that they needed to let their son go.  Once they released this grief and their son to Jesus, they felt the weight lift up off of them.  The Lord healed them that day.

After one had left the office, one may have been out by the elevators.  One’s new friend may have come out too.  They may have been unable to talk.  We may have embraced, words were not necessary.  One may believe our paths will cross again.  Thanks again Jesus for being so awesome.
