SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Times of transition are not just intervals of silence and waiting for the next thing. They present opportunities in which you can evaluate where you are spiritually and naturally. Without this evaluation, you will make the same mistakes again and again. The ultimate goal is to be changed and transformed from living your life according to your carnal nature into life in the Spirit.
 
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
 
God is releasing new boldness. Taking risks will pay off really big. Doug Addison

Whether people want you around or not doesn’t matter. You have Me. Isn’t that good enough? Isn’t that all you need to know? When I occupy your time with gladness of heart,​ You will not be concerned about what is around you. You will be so full of joy. What is to My glory​ You will enjoy for you know I provided it.
Ps. Randy Brodhagen

August 22, 2019. There can never be too much encouragement. Yet that is an area in which many believers fail to deliver and follow through. In a world full of judgment and criticism, Christians can get caught up in the tides of giving verdicts before they realize they have done so. Be about reinforcing the good in others. Give kudos to those around you for their acts of righteousness. Inspire others with kind and reassuring words. Speak words of life.
Hebrews 3:13 (NOG) “Encourage each other every day while you have the opportunity. If you do this, none of you will be deceived by sin and become stubborn.”  Kevin Robinson
 
August 22, 2019. There is peace and safety in submitting to those in authority in every situation. Submit with a joyful heart and it will be a peaceful balm over you and all involved. Allow for peaceful submission in every situation and circumstance so you may be covered under My wing of protection and blessing. You are the apple of My eye, and I have poured into you a wealth of knowledge and wisdom intended for My Kingdom.

1 Peter 2:13-14 (NASB) “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right.”  Jonas Bohlin
