SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be strong and stay steady as you move from one thing to the next. I didn’t promise that it would be easy, but I did promise that I would be with you and not forsake you. There will be times when you just need to be quiet; an emotional meltdown will not serve your best interests, says the Lord. Trust Me for wisdom and direction. I will indeed point the way and protect you on the way.

Hebrews 3:14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/24/11:

From the first day that you set your heart to know Me, I have been with you. I have already told you that I will never leave you nor forsake you; that is the truth. I say this by way of reminder that you are not alone and that I will direct and protect you as you continue to seek My face and trust in Me. Do not be afraid for I am with you, says the Lord, and I will give you wisdom in times of uncertainty. Go forth in the power of My Spirit!

Psalm 23:1-6 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.

Stand Your Ground And Protect The Seed, Which Is My Word And My Promises Sown In Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/07/2011:

Set a watch, and refuse to allow your thoughts to take you down the path that leads to discouragement and despair. The enemy desires to steal your faith and expectation of My goodness, says the Lord. But, you must stand your ground and protect the seed, which is My word and My promises sown in your heart. Take care of of your inheritance, and be a good steward of what you’ve been given and what you’ve been given to do.

Luke 8:15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.

One may have heard the alarm go off several times this morning.  One may have thought that it was the 6:00 AM alarm and that one did not have to get up right then.  The alarm may have begun to blare once again.  One may have decided to turn it off.  One may have noticed the time.  It may have been 3:40 AM.  One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.

One may have jumped up and logged onto one’s computer to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

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

Pay attention to the subtleties of your experiences, for they will reveal My work and My constant interaction in your life. And, they will also reveal the work of the enemy to undermine your effectiveness in the kingdom if you have eyes to see and ears to hear in the realm of the Spirit. I will bring to light things that are obscure or difficult to perceive and understand, says the Lord. I will lead, guide, direct and protect you as you yield to the power of My presence.

Hebrews 5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 5:40 AM.  Lord, please forgive one for being late this morning, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.  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 Nehemiah 1.  Thank You Jesus!

Protect And Preserve What I Have Given You And All That I Have Given You To Do

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — June 23, 2010:

Beloved, I want you to be aware that the enemy will do his best to use people to intrude into your life to establish a position of illegitimate authority and control. Be on the alert for those who barge into your life’s circumstances uninvited. Make sure that new associations are with people of integrity and that they have no ulterior motives, says the Lord. Protect and preserve what I have given you and all that I have given you to do. Be sensitive to My leading, for I will give you discernment, and I will cause you to maintain security.

Psalms 119:117 Hold me up, and I shall be safe, and I shall observe Your statutes continually.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s 3:00 AM alarm.  One may have decided to reset the alarm for 3:20 AM.  The second alarm may have gone off.  One may have continued to lie in one’s bed.  One may have thought a few minutes may have passed.  One may have got up and checked the time.  It may have been 3:34 AM and one may have been late for one’s prayer time with Jesus.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:41 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’s eyes may have fell in the middle of Matthew 15.  Next, one’s eyes may have fixed on Matthew 16.  One may have been torn between the two.  One may love both chapters.  One may believe that Matthew 15 may be today’s blog and one may also recommend Matthew 16.  Thank You Jesus!

Keep Looking Up, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 16, 2010:

Take courage and lean on My strength to keep moving through the difficulties that you face. You need to be patient and trust Me to lead, guide, direct and protect you at this time. Do not despair when you do not seem to have what it takes to deal with current issues. Ask, and I will give you wisdom. This too shall pass, and new focus and clarity will come forth like the first rays of sunshine of a new day. Keep looking up, says the Lord.

Hebrews 12:1 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 faith, 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.

One may have awakened a few hours before one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have worked on an assignment.  One’s grandchild may have awakened a little before one had to enter one’s prayer closet.

One may have taken care of the child and the child may have settled down.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin before entering one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have been encouraged, thank you Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time.  One may have begun to praise the Lord with song.  One may have begun to confess one’s sins.  Out of nowhere one may have felt the need to check on the child.  One thought to do it later, after one’s prayer closet time.

One may have found oneself leaving one’s prayer closet and entering the room where the child may have been.  The child may have been asleep.  One may have walked over to the child and discovered that their bottle may have been lying upside down next to the side of their neck.

One may have removed the bottle; it may have been empty.  One may have touch the child’s clothing and discovered that their sleeper, receiving blanket and boppy may have been wet.  Even the child’s hair may have been wet on the back of their head.

One may not be sure if this is even possible.  The entire back of the sleeper may have been wet from shoulder to shoulder.  There may have been a small wet spot on the sheet of the bed.  One may have thought the whole incident weird and suspect.

One may have removed the items, washed the child off and put clean dry clothes on the child.  One may have replaced all the items for the child, including the boppy with a brand new one.

The child may have continued to sleep soundly.  One may have put the wet items and the soiled boppy in the washing machine.

One may have re-entered one’ s prayer closet at 4:03 AM and thanked the Lord for leading one to check on the child.

One may have finished confessing one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for the scripture for today.  One may have been led to Isaiah 28.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests a little after 4:30 AM.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

To Hide Or Protect Your Carnality Is To Resist The Cleansing

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 27, 2010:

Beloved, there has been an extreme and intense shaking in and among you, My people. This has been for the purpose of revealing aspects of your lives that need redemption. These are things that must either be transformed from flesh to Spirit or be removed altogether. This reformation is vital in this time of the preparation of My Bride, says the Lord. And, you must deliberately surrender everything that is resistant to this process if you are to proceed in My purposes. To hide or protect your carnality is to resist the cleansing.

Revelation 19:7 “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”

One may have awakened early this morning.  One may have been busy working.  Thank you Jesus.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought of some things that one may need to surrender and decided to give them to Jesus during one’s prayer time.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time at 3:30 AM.  One may have begun to praise the Lord.  One may have confessed past sins that one may have committed as well as current sins and asked for forgiveness.

One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  As one may have been writing one’s blog, one may have totally forgotten the scripture for today.  One may not write it down, one may trust the Lord to bring it back to one.  One may have remembered that it may have been in the book of Isaiah.  One may have prayed and may have been led to Isaiah 25.  One may have begun to read this chapter.  One may have known that this passage was not the desired passage.

One may have begun to search backwards and may not have found anything familiar.  One may have begun to get frustrated.  After getting to chapter 2 which one knew was not the desired passage, one may have gone to chapter 26.  This may not have been it either.  With the clock ticking for one to get this post done before midnight, one may have cried out to Jesus.

One may have been led to Isaiah 21.  One remembered!  One may have remembered looking at chapter 22 and saying to oneself, “No, one’s eyes fell on chapter 21 first.”  As one read the beginning of this passage, one remembered reading the word “Media”; one may have thought of the Persians and Medes.  Thank you Lord for bringing it all back to one and please forgive one’s impatience and frustration, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

One may have found oneself outside one’s prayer closet.  It may have dawned on one and one wondered if one left early, not knowing the time.  One may have felt that one was done after receiving the passage of scripture for today.  One may have checked the time; it may have been exactly 4:30 AM, one’s appointed time to leave.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering the prayers of each outstanding prayer request, in Jesus’ name, amen.
