SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Sometimes I say Yes; sometimes I say No; sometimes I sayWhoa. It is up to you to develop your discernment and a hearing ear, which takes practice. Spend the time and make the effort to have a relationship with My Holy Spirit so that you can see and hear in the realm of the spirit, says the Lord.
 
Luke 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
 
Watch for God to do things outside the box as you get unexpected solutions. Doug Addison
August 2, 2019. “To die is gain,” can be a puzzling position to contemplate. The words which precede this phrase are easy to process, “To live is Christ.” It’s the dying part that is hard to swallow and digest. You fight with every fiber of your being to stay alive in so many areas of your life. Let your hopes, dreams and aspirations die and watch Me resurrect those things I see fitting into My plans for you.
Philippians 1:21 (NASB) “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Kevin Robinson

August 2, 2019. The atmosphere has been changing for a while. You know this to be true. The enemy has saturated the atmosphere and he seeks to destroy everything you put your hand to. You know he is attacking, but be still, My child, because he is defeated. Yes, he is lurking behind every corner, but I have given you a strategy. RESIST him and he has to flee. Do not tolerate him because yours is the victory!
James 4:7 (TPT) “So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will turn and run away from you.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
You have been in a long season of setting things straight and of fixing that which needed attention.  That season is coming to a close.  There are still issues that need to be addressed before you can truly move on.  Be diligent to do all that is necessary in order to sufficiently close the book on the past.  Prepare to enter your new spiritual year with a clean slate, says the Lord.
 
Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.
 
Hope is in the air no matter what things look like on the surface.  Doug Addison
August 1, 2019. I am your source. I have left the written Word for your source. Stay in contact with Me all during the day and night. I am always there with you, but it is good for you to acknowledge My presence. It is good for you to read My Word as often as you can, especially early in the morning. David said in Psalms seven times a day and all day long I praise the Lord. Follow this example.
Psalm 119:164-165 (AMP) “Seven times a day and all day long do I praise You because of Your righteous decrees. Great peace have they who love Your law; nothing shall offend them or make them stumble.”  Bev Robinson
 
August 1, 2019. Imagine a life without Me in it. That thought is difficult to comprehend because I am so interwoven into every tapestry fiber of your life. The way I have threaded My ways into your ways is a work of art. Some would say you have become like a textile industry because you produce such fine quality weaves in people, places and materials. Continue letting Me course My cord of Father, Son and Holy Spirit throughout your life.
Ephesians 2:10 (NIV) “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Kevin Robinson
 
August 1, 2019. I Am the Truth; I Am the Way. My Son and I are one and there is only one Truth and one Way. Humility is submitting to the fact that there is only one Truth; any other thing that exalts itself above that truth is pride. Recognizing Truth to the point that your desires, words, and actions line up with Me is true humility. There is not a better way than My way. Humble yourself to Me.
John 14:6 (NASB) “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”  Jonas Bohlin
