SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
This is a time of letting go. Let go of everything that keeps you from spiritual progression. Your fussing and fretting will do nothing to solve problems and concerns. Find the solid foundation of life in the Spirit and then what you build will last. Build on the Word of truth and righteousness. Do not allow the things of the world to become a snare.
Proverbs 10:25 In the coming of the blast the impious are obliterated; but the just in turning aside escapes into the eon.
August 17, 2020. It is beautiful where you are. You haven’t looked lately. You have gone about with everyday doings and haven’t noticed. Yes, I know there are some spots that aren’t exactly lovely, but don’t concentrate on those. Look for the spots of beauty. Some are out in the open and some are like little hidden gems. You need to be aware of the beauty around you Sometimes you don’t see or forget. Beauty is good for your soul.
Ecclesiastes 3:11-12 (NLT2) “Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.” Bev Robinson
August 17, 2020 There’s always tomorrow or I am busy, or something else grabs your attention. When will the procrastination end? You know it’s a problem and yet you still put your to-do list off for another day. You are not only penalizing yourself, but you are causing much dismay to some of those closest to you because of your indifference. What kind of witness are you portraying? Be known as a doer, a get it done type of individual.
James 1:22-24 (MSG) “Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.” Kevin Robinson
August 17, 2020. It’s time to get up and start moving again. When you are given the choice to move or to stay sedentary – choose to move! My Scriptures are filled with walking, running and dancing movement. Exercise comes from a healthy body that is lined up. Even if you are in a sickbed – wiggle those toes, raise those hands. The circulation of your blood will begin to flow better and soon you will be up and moving again.
Acts 17:28 (NASB) “for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children’.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
