SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/30/15:
I always encourage and entreat you to align your life — your purposes, goals, attitudes and actions–with what is good and true.  Your life in the Spirit depends on your willingness to walk in the ways of righteousness and peace, says the Lord.  Prioritize your life to actually put Me first in all things.  Many of you say that is what you want to do, but actions speak louder than words or intentions.  You must do it!
Matthew 6:33  “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/29/15:
I am vitally interested in how you treat others.  It is My desire that you respect and value every human being regardless of their position or station in life.  It is time for My chosen ones to be done with all prejudice and unrighteous judgment.  You may disagree with the decisions and actions of others, but that must not be a basis for mistreatment, says the Lord.
Matthew 5:43-45  “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’  But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/28/15:
In a vision I saw a man looking at the stars and identifying the constellation Orion.  I knew this had to do with navigation and of finding his bearings.  And, I heard the Lord say, “You have been in a difficult storm and are feeling unstable in many ways.  Now is the time to look and see where you are and to point yourself in the direction of your destination.  The storm has created a separation between that which is actually important and that which has just consumed your time and energy.  Look to Me for direction and guidance.”
Psalms 31:3  “For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead me and guide me.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  4/27/15
Have you heard My voice?  Have you listened to that which I have revealed?  If you will respond in a positive way to My leading, to My guidance, and learn from what I am teaching and showing you, you will benefit greatly.  I will enable you to do what you cannot do.  I will enable you by controlling the circumstances around you when you come into a place of absolute trust in Me.  Let Me take care of those things that you cannot take care of.  I am the Lord who is able to do all things.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 4/2/15:
Embrace change and trust Me that whatever changes you endure will work to your benefit.  There are things that you have needed to let go of, and if you don’t let go willingly it will be more difficult to move on.  I know your situation, and I know what is best for you, says the Lord.
Psalms 32:8   “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 4/24/15:
Life experience for many of you has been like being in white-water rapids with the roar of the river ringing in your ears.  You are about to emerge from this treacherous stretch into a time of when navigating life will be easier and will even have periods of absolute peace.  Maximize the benefits by putting trauma behind you and calming your soul, says the Lord.  Be comforted.
Mark 4:39  “Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/23/15:
You have been through a troubling and unsettling time, but you will come out on the other side in victory.  You will not be weakened by your experiences; you will be strengthened and have new understanding of what it takes to overcome and succeed, says the Lord.  I continue to be with you and to lead you into righteous responses to difficult situations.
John 14:27   “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —  4/22/15:
In a vision I saw a round corral filled with horses.  They were in the middle of an open range and waiting with wild anticipation for the gate to open.  And, I heard the Lord say, “You are in a time of waiting for the gate to open so that you can experience more of My kingdom and advance in spiritual understanding.  As flowers come forth in springtime when conditions are right, so will new life in you come when spiritual conditions are right.”
Isaiah 43:19  “Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/21/15:
You might feel like change is being forced upon you, but I tell you truthfully that if you will embrace this time of adjustments, you will benefit greatly in the days ahead.  Don’t be reluctant to let go of that which has outlived its usefulness.  You cannot move forward and stay stationary at the same time.  Allow Me to show you the way, says the Lord.
Psalms 32:8   “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  4/20/15:
Do you know that your body is the temple of My habitation?  Do you know that I live and dwell in you?  Do you know that I have been sent to cause you to come into a place of spiritual wellness and awareness?  For, I AM here with you to quicken your mortal body, to guide you, to lead you into the path of life . I AM here to cause you to be greater than you are without Me.  I AM here to reveal the word of the Lord to you.  I AM here to present Jesus as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to you.  I AM here to tell you that the Father loves you, cares for you, knows you, and His greatest desire is that all of His will be established in your life and begin to work on your behalf — beginning right now, this very moment, this day, says the Spirit of the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/20/15:
You can either live in the soft breeze of My Spirit or in the whirlwind of your own making.   It is the difference between walking in the Spirit and living in the flesh.   The choice is yours.  But, it would be good for you to quiet your emotional responses and knee-jerk reactions to circumstances, and let Me lead you in the way of peace, says the Lord.
Luke 21:19 “By your patience possess your souls. ”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/17/15:
Come into order on every front.  The days ahead require your full attention, so you must not be distracted by trivial matters that can be dealt with at this time.  Do not procrastinate, but take care of things that remain unresolved.  I will give you the strength and guidance necessary to take first things first and move forward with precision, says the Lord.
Psalms 28:7   “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/16/15:
There are adjustments to be made before the new season is in full swing.  There are decisions to make, things to let go of, and things to acquire.  This will not necessarily be a wide swath of change, but will be minor adjustments that will keep your life on the course that is optimum for you, says the Lord.  Let Me lead you in the way of righteous change.
Ecclesiastes 3:1  “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/15/15:
For those who have taken on more than you can effectively handle, it is time to tie up loose ends and to simplify.  It is not good for you to be overextended.  Pull back where you can, and get your priorities in order so that you actually have time for Me, says the Lord.  For, it is in the time you spend in My presence that you will be restored, renewed and invigorated.
Acts 3:19   “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 4/14/15:
I speak to many whose hearts have been torn and minds scattered.  You are trying to find peace, but having lived in crisis for so long, you have lost your bearings and are not able to find your true self in Me, says the Lord.  Your identity has been compromised.  You must stop running and re-establish yourself in a place of spiritual safety and stability by drawing close to Me again.  I am with you.
Psalms 73:28   “But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  4/13/15:
I have spoken to you.  I have spoken the truth to you.  And, your spirit knows the truth that will indeed set you free.  But, My greatest desire for you is to live in victory.  The Spirit has been sent to you so that you will have victory in every aspect of your life.  I want you to thrive and to prosper.   I want you to live in joy, peace, and the health and prosperity that I have provided.  All things are for your benefit.  All you have to do now is to rise up and receive that which I have done, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/13/15:
Be sure that the word you receive from Me is applied where it is intended.  You must have discernment to understand the relevance and places of effectiveness of that which I speak.  To do this, you have to allow Me to give you the wisdom to know the intent and how you will be affected, says the Lord.
John 6:63  “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/10/15:
It is time to awaken to greater awareness, discernment, and higher purpose.  You cannot move to this new spiritual level when you are still half asleep.  I am calling you to come up here.  Quiet your soul and feel the moving of My Spirit; hear the sound of My voice, and follow My leading.  You are on the threshold of a great awakening, says the Lord.  Be sensitive.
Ephesians 5:14   “Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.””

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —  4/9/15:
You must learn to protect your own spiritual and natural space, especially as chaos, confusion, and division continue to get worse.  Come into My place of safety for you and refuse to get entangled with situations that steal your peace, says the Lord.  Make a conscious effort to maintain a strong connection with Me.
2 Peter 2:20   “For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 4/8/15:
I see those whose hearts have become dull or even dead to life in the Spirit.  I call you forth from being spiritually deaf to hearing My voice again.  I call you forth from spiritual death to live in the Spirit again.  Shake yourself awake and rise up to be alert and vibrant.  These are times that require your alertness and attention, says the Lord.  Come forth!
John 11:43-44   “Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”  And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.””

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 4/7/15:
Get ready to emerge from a transitional time when progression seemed to have stalled.  It’s not that you haven’t accomplished what was necessary, but forward motion was difficult and hindered at best — almost like walking through mud.  You will soon sense a time of release as you move with less restriction and greater freedom, 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.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  — 4/6/15:
The value of My life in you is underestimated.  When My life flows in you, you can be who you have been called to be.  And, you will be equipped by My word to become the kings of the age — those who rule and reign with Me as joint heirs forevermore.  But, do not undervalue My love for you or the fact that I want to empower you.  No matter what happens in your life I am with you to bring you through to victory, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 4/6/15:
Regardless of what you have to endure in this life, you must keep in mind that I am your Savior, your Deliverer, and your Safe Haven.  In this world you will have trouble, but I will help you and bring you through to victory, says the Lord.  Have faith in Me.
2 Corinthians 4:6-9   “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.  We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed-always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 4/3/15:
Rise up from the depths of discouragement and despair.  Regardless of difficult situations or the fierceness of the storms in your life, I am still with you.  You can trust Me to bring you through to victory.  Remember that the purpose of a storm is for you to seek Me, find Me, and trust Me.  You live in an imperfect world, but you serve a perfect God.  Live as though you believe that, says the Lord.
2 Samuel 22:31  “As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 4/2/15:
For those of you, My people, who are stressed because of your work load or circumstances, take a deep breath.  I tell you truthfully that everything is going to be all right.  No need to worry.  Take every opportunity to relax even if it is for a few minutes, and re-focus on knowing you have My Spirit to comfort you and lead you to peace and safety, says the Lord.  You are not alone.
Psalms 31:3   “For You are my rock and my fortress; therefore, for Your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 4/1/15:
Be on the alert for things that will interrupt your routine.  They will not necessarily take you out of your spiritual flow, but you will need to stay calm and make adjustments that will allow you to do what you have to do and still be in the Spirit.  Deal with disturbances without procrastinating, and take them in stride, says the Lord.  There is purpose in accommodating disruptions, which you will see and understand after the fact.
Isaiah 58:11   “The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”
