SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

I need you to be quiet and learn to focus, says the Lord. Stress comes from a wandering mind and being too scattered. Take the time necessary to deal with or dismiss thoughts that are unproductive and that take you away from your obedience to Me. It is time to clean up your thought process and at the same time clean up your spiritual atmosphere in order to gain greater clarity of purpose. You will be delighted with the results.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 7/29/11:

Discern your point of stress, and apply faith and trust in Me, says the Lord. Stress comes when you lack understanding and need wisdom. Ask for what you need, and I will give it. Refuse to be afraid of failure, for I will lead you through even the most difficult maze to attain your goal. But, you must rely on Me for guidance and direction. Do not fall back on trusting yourself or your own good ideas. Seek Me instead.

John 15:16 “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”

Come And Commune With Me In The Secret Place

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/4/11:

If you will diligently and urgently seek My face with all your heart instead of only looking for me to manifest outwardly, I will release you into a place of freedom and rest. This inward connection is where faith is born; it is the place where prayer is answered. Come and commune with Me in the secret place, which is even hidden from all trouble and stress. Come into My rest, says the Lord, and let Me establish you in peace and joy.

Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 1, 2010:

The pressure will come to convince you to do something that you neither want to do nor have been moved by My Spirit to do. Stand your ground without wavering, and do not give in to anything that causes stress or has a sense of urgency about it. For, the enemy wants you to be distracted from an important chain of events that will produce greater spiritual power and benefit as you continue in the flow of My wisdom and blessings, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
