SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, the strength of your life and health is not only found in joy but in dealing with things as they come.  Diligence is the operative word here.  Quiet and steady perseverance will benefit you greatly and keep you moving forward.  This is no time to get stuck in circumstances that seem to be overwhelming.  When something seems to be beyond your ability to deal with, trust Me for the help that you need, says the Lord.  I will give you direction, wisdom and strength in all things. 

Psalm 120:1-2  I will lift up my eyes to the hills-From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Lamentations 1 – Jeremiah Laments for Jerusalem.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Jesus for hearing and answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will.  Amen.

Beloved, You Are On A Firm Foundation, Which Is Christ The Rock

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/10/11:

Beloved, you are on a firm foundation, which is Christ the Rock. I tell you the truth, you cannot build and tear down at the same time. I have called you to build with the Word, with your own words of truth, with faith and in obedience. Build the kingdom with integrity and diligence by the power of My Spirit, and refuse to tear down through operating in the works of the flesh. Arise and build, says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:11-15 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

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 Mark 16.  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.

Resist The Devil, For There Is No Temptation Too Great For You To Overcome

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 22, 2009:

Beloved, I have already brought warnings to you to guard your heart with all diligence. Be aware that the enemy is roaring around, looking for those who will get in his most dangerous territory through allowing their emotions to run wild. Guard your thoughts and emotions, and refuse to allow the devil to bring discouragement, disappointment and depression. Rise up and embrace My joy, says the Lord, and be strengthened in your inner man. Draw near to me, and place your hope in My love for you. Resist the devil, for there is no temptation too great for you to overcome.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

One may have awakened early this morning, a little after midnight.  One may have decided to write in one’s daily log.  After finishing one’s writings, one may have prayed and opened one’s Bible to Psalms 146.  One may have continued reading.  One may have read:

One may have noticed that all five psalms began with “Praise ye the LORD.”  One may have been encouraged.

One may have fallen back asleep.  The alarm may have gone off. One reset it for 3:20 AM.  When the alarm blared at 3:20 AM, one may have just laid there for a few minutes.  One may have gotten up and preceded to one’s computer.  Once logged in, one may have noticed that a pop-up window was open indicating that one should choose a network option.  Safari may have been open with a message indicating that it could not connect to the Internet.  One may have closed the pop-up window and Safari.

One proceeded to open Safari the second time.  One may have gotten the same message indicating that it was unable to connect.  The system again prompted one to choose a network for this computer.  One may have tried Firefox as well.  One simply did not have an internet connection.

One may have gone over to check one’s modem and router, both were unplugged.  One may have plugged them in.  One may have thought that one could not enter one’s prayer closet if this situation did not get resolved.  One may have been willing to miss one’s special time with Jesus.

One may have tried to open Safari again.  It may have been unable to connect to the Internet.  One tried to set the network, but the options that were available were not working.  One may have thought, “I have to get this resolved, I have to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.”

One may have thought to reboot the system and hopefully the desired settings would re-establish themselves.  One may have shut down the PC.  One restarted one’s computer.  Once logged in, one may have clicked on Safari and it may have connected as usual.  Thank you Jesus!

One opened one’s e-mail and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have done a few other things as well.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet late.  One may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:35 AM with joyful singing.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, and prayed for the sick.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 139.  Thank you Jesus!

After leaving one’s prayer closet, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Afterwards, one may have thought about how one was willing to miss one’s prayer time for the sake of one’s computer.  One may have wanted the issue resolved right away and felt that one could not do anything until one figured out the problem.

Lord, thanks for the help with the computer.  Lord, please forgive one for getting one’s priorities mixed up by putting one’s computer and routine before you, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

Issues Of Life!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 22, 2009:

The Lord said to set a watch for disappointments and to guard our hearts with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23)  And, I kept hearing Johnny Cash’s song “Walk the Line” over and over again. Here are the song lyrics —

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

You’ve got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can’t hide
For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

Song of Solomon 6:3 I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine.

One may have awakened to the alarm going off at 3:00 AM.  One may have lain there.  One may have heard the reminder from one’s calendar chirp on one’s computer.

One may have gotten on the computer.  One may have logged onto the site where one may pray for prayer requests.  One may have done this so that one could immediately began to pray for individuals after one’s special time with the Lord.

One read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and hurried to bathroom to prepare it and spend time with the Lord.

One may have started to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have stopped between songs due to something that had been on one’s mind.

Throughout the whole time with the Lord, one may have been struggling with an issue one may have.  One may have confessed one’s sins, which took up most of one’s time.  One may have found oneself consistently in deep thought.  One spoke in tongues during the last four minutes of this special time with Jesus.

At 4:30 AM, one left the bathroom and began to pray for individuals who had requested prayer.  When one submitted the prayer requests, the application timed out because one had logged in before 3:30 AM and it remained idle for over an hour; it may have been a little after 4:30 AM.  These individuals may not have gotten an e-mail stating that one had prayed for them and the requests may have remained outstanding.  Nonetheless, one may believe Jesus answered those prayers.  One logged into the application once again and prayed for individuals.

Lord Jesus, I pray that each prayer was heard and answered according to your perfect will, in Jesus name, I pray, amen.
