SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Do your best to stay focused spiritually. Refuse to allow the day-to-day issues and activities to cloud your perspective and interfere with your ability to stay in touch with Me, says the Lord. Maintain eternal perspective knowing that life on earth is temporary.
2 Corinthians 4:18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Pray about it all and then thank Me. Thanking Me is so important; it relieves the stress of thinking you have to work it out. You can’t work it all out by yourself. So don’t even try. Trust Me and listen so you will know if I want you to do anything.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMP) “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.” Bev Robinson
May 8, 2019. Don’t ever lose sight of the wonderment of who I am. Take time to gaze upon the wonderful creations I have made for your pleasure and enjoyment. Whether it is an ant who is busy preparing for winter, or a wildflower in bloom that is here today and gone tomorrow, they are made by Me for your enjoyment. Appreciate the roof over your head and the clothes on your back. Never lose sight of your ability to take your next breath. These are wonderful.
Nehemiah 9:6 (ESV) “You are the Lord, You alone. You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and You preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships You.” Kevin Robinson
May 8, 2019. Today you will choose whether you surrender your joy or not. No one or no circumstance can move you into discouragement. It is your will that chooses. Choose this day what you will do for My joy is complete in you and can stay no matter what. Choose to sing, choose to rejoice. No situation great or small has the power to steal your peace. Develop your self-control and My light will grow stronger.
1 John 1:4-5 (NKJV) “And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
