SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
You are longing for your life to be normal again and to get back to that which is predictable and comfortable. But, you cannot recover life as it used to be. I tell you honestly that things will never be the same. This is not a time to look back; it is a time to look forward. Many of the adjustments you have made to accommodate an unusual season will become your new normal. Lean on Me and trust Me to give you the wisdom and strength to advance in a new environment.
2 Peter 3:14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless.
Get ready for clear instructions on what is coming. Doug Addison
June 19, 2020. Be bold in sharing the Gospel with others. You are concerned that you may get it wrong and mess up another person. You will get it wrong if you rely on your own power, but if you rely on Me, even if you don’t get it completely right, it won’t be wrong. Let it be commonplace for you to share. Let it just roll off your tongue. Enjoy the moment. Have no fear, I am leading you.
John 3:16 (ESV) “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” Bev Robinson
June 19, 2020. Not many things are free. My wisdom is one of those items worth your attention. People often find themselves frustrated because of new problems and lack of proper know-how to fix them. Some people only want the “easy” path in life. Some are unwilling to put forth effort toward making progress in giving themselves a boost in the right direction. How is “your way” working for you? My wisdom costs nothing except humility. Humble yourself and ask.
James 1:5-7 (NOG) “If any of you needs wisdom to know what you should do, you should ask God, and He will give it to you. God is generous to everyone and doesn’t find fault with them. When you ask for something, don’t have any doubts. A person who has doubts is like a wave that is blown by the wind and tossed by the sea. A person who has doubts shouldn’t expect to receive anything from the Lord.” Kevin Robinson
June 19, 2020. Choice. I love you so much that I give you a choice. True love never forces anything, control does that. True love gives love and desires to receive love in return. I will always give you the choice to love Me and obey Me. I will never force your allegiance. I am the very essence of love and will always love you correctly. Imitate My love with others and refuse to control those around you.
1 John 4:7-8 (NASB) “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
