SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
You have come to a turning point where that which has concerned you is coming to a conclusion. As one chapter ends a new one begins. You can now evaluate the past season with objectivity to see what you might have done differently. This should not be a time of condemnation, but one of reflection and instruction. Take this opportunity to grow, says the Lord.
Proverbs 27:19 As in water face reflects face, so a man’s heart reveals the man.
God is bringing to light new things that were previously not clear. Doug Addison

Then when events turn bad, you will have practiced thinking on the good and it will be easier to focus on the good. In life, it’s a fact that tribulation comes. Don’t spend time expecting it to come, but nevertheless it will come. This is a time to fully and joyfully trust the Lord.
James 1:2-4 (NKJV) “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” Bev Robinson
August 6, 2019. Tap in to My wellspring of energy. You have been somewhat sapped of your stamina and strength. Some of your tasks and undertakings are draining you of much needed get-up-and-go. Stop trying to handle all of your affairs by yourself. Lay down your foolish pride and be rational with what lies before you. At your disposal is a plethora of endless vitality straight from My mercy seat. Humble yourself. Ask of Me. Watch your vigor increase exponentially.
Colossians 1:11-12 (NLT) “We also pray that you will be strengthened with all His glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy,always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to His people, who live in the light.” Kevin Robinson
July 6, 2019. Let the light that I have put in you shine brightly. There are many, many people who have been touched by My light that is in you. Do not allow the enemy to minimize that fact. There are those from your past whose lives have been touched by you, and you are not even aware of many of them. Ask Me and I will begin to show you those who have been touched by Me in you.
Matthew 5:16 (NASB) “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Jonas Bohlin
