SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/29/16:
In reflecting back, I would have you consider and rejoice in your victories instead of lamenting your places of failure and defeat.  Your mistakes have helped shape your character, but your ability to overcome has developed strength.  Encourage yourself in remembering that I have made you victorious in all things, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 2:14  “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/28/16:
Many of you, My people, need to rest – not just physically, but spiritually.  Your rest will come when you cast your burden on Me and trust Me to undertake on your behalf.  Stop striving.  Stop worrying.  And, come into a place of solid faith; not hoping, but knowing that I am with you to help and strengthen you, says the Lord.
Isaiah 38:14  “Like a crane or a swallow, so I chattered; I mourned like a dove; my eyes fail from looking upward. O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me!”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/27/16:
Take time to review all of the changes that have occurred in the past year.  In doing this, you will be able to see more clearly the texture of the future.  You won’t know the details, but you will be able to see a trend, says the Lord.  Be assured that I am leading you.
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  —  4/26/16:
My desire is that My people really do, in this time frame, listen and pay attention to that which I’m doing. Because those that do not will miss out on the glory of the season, and they will be extremely disappointed after the fact. So, it will behoove you to pay attention. Let your faith be attached to what I am doing, says the Lord, and you will be okay.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/26/16:
Be on high alert when things seem to be difficult or falling apart.  The enemy of your soul will try to blind-side you to get you off track and to cause you to question what you thought you knew.  Go back to the fundamentals of what you believe about your situation and why.  You will have to regroup and make sure you are still on the right track, says the Lord.
2 Timothy 3:14   “But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  425/16:
You will now find yourself in “defining moments.”  This time of transition will define your journey and establish your path into the future.  You will soon realize that you are on the path of no return.  New developments will come quickly, and will create a spiritual rippling effect throughout your life. World conditions will be upset, and things will never be the same.  These days will be like the days when Israel came out of Egypt and entered the land of promise.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/25/16:
Hunker down and get serious about serving Me, says the Lord.  The days of complacency must come to an end before you can forge ahead in newness of life.  Life in the Spirit will be more rewarding than you ever imagined, but you must make the decision and put forth the effort necessary to achieve this position.
Deuteronomy 4:29 “But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” 


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/22/16:
Position yourself in a place of peace, and completely let go of the fears that you have secretly nurtured.  Fear is neither productive nor will it yield positive results.  Calm down.  Get your thoughts under control, and put your trust in Me, for I will bring you through this time, says the Lord.  Let Me lead you out.
2 Timothy 1:7  “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/21/16:
You are about to move out of the doldrums, but you may need to adjust your mindset and make corrections to your attitude in order to make the best of your circumstances.  Open your mind and heart to new things even when you are afraid of being vulnerable.  Put your trust in Me to protect you from real danger, says the Lord.
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  —  4/20/16:
It is important that you position yourself in the Spirit to move into the next phase of existence.  Positioning is vital to your readiness and progression.  Establish yourself in right relationship to Me, and allow Me to give you the wisdom and knowledge you need to know where you are and where you are going, says the Lord.
John 15:4  “Abide in Me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/19/16:
I want to show you the wonders of perceiving the world around you from a spiritual perspective.  Your inclination is to see everything from a natural or worldly point of view, but I want to take you higher and help you see and understand spiritually.  Set your heart to allow Me to transform you into My image, says the LORD.
Romans 12:2   “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  4/18/16:
I would have you position yourself by faith with regard to what I AM doing in these days.  For, this is the season of light, the season of revelation, the season of elevation, the season in which you will have an opportunity to go higher than ever.  You can get to know Me with greater depth.  It is the time in which I am establishing the framework of your journey into and through this next season so that you can receive the blessings and learn the lessons of the season, thereby going higher and higher.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/18/16:
You are on the right track, but circumstances will arise that have the potential of getting you  sidetracked.  Stay focused and keep your objective clear.  This truly is a new beginning, but the enemy will do whatever he can to cause you to make the same mistakes you made in the last spiritual season.  Seek Me for wisdom in all things, says the LORD.
Deuteronomy 5:32  “Therefore you shall be careful to do as the LORD your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/15/16:
Just when you seem to be breaking through, challenges will seem to arise that will test the strength of your intentions.  Do not give up at the first sign of difficulty, but push through until you get through.  Be resolute in your faith and trust, and do your best to maintain your forward momentum.  Instead of relying on other people, lean on Me, says the LORD.
Matthew 11:30   “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/14/16:
You have been through a rough patch, but the problems you encountered are being sorted out.  Lift yourself up and look through the spiritual lens of hope and faith.  That is what will bring you through in victory, says the LORD.  Refuse to get bogged down in the negativity of the past.  Be strong and of good courage.
Deuteronomy 31:6  “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/13/16:
This is a new day.  Put the past firmly behind you and look to Me for guidance and direction for the future.  You will need My wisdom and the ability to exercise spiritual discernment so that you can know what to do and how to handle situations that arise.  Stay connected to Me.  Your life in the Spirit is everything, says the LORD.
Romans 8:9   “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/12/16:
The road to My kingdom is narrow and the way is sometimes rough.  Many of you have become compromised and lukewarm.  I AM the strength of your heart and the Savior of your soul.  There is no way to eternal life except through Me, says the LORD.   Take this opportunity to renew your commitment.
Matthew 7:13-14  “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  4/11/16:
Have you heard My word, My people?  It is My greatest and profound desire that you begin to climb even higher in this season, that your faith will grow even more, and that you will become the manifestation of My presence on this earth.  Do not forget that you are a generation that is to carry the torch of these days — a generation that is to bring the light of My Kingdom.  For, all around you will see death and destruction. In this world hypocrisy abounds, but you are a people of faith.  Begin now to live the life of faith, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/11/16:
Listen.  Hear My voice calling you to come up here.  Rise up from worldly and carnal concerns to focus on things that will affect you for all of eternity.  Concern yourself with establishing yourself in My character and nature, and My image, says the LORD.  I will help you do this, but you must come up.
Isaiah 60:1   “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/8/16:
Consider what I have given to you, says the LORD, the knowledge and wisdom of My word and the power of My presence.  Guard closely the purity of My Spirit within you and do not cast your pearls before swine.  Exercise your discernment to know when to speak and when to shut up.  Let Me lead you in all things.
Matthew 7:6   “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/7/16:
Refuse to allow your life to be defined by loss and grief.  Push through to new horizons and possibilities of what can be rather than getting stuck in what has been.  You will have opportunities to bring positive definition to your life by coming to an understanding of what it truly means to have your life hidden in Me, says the LORD.
Colossians 3:1-3   “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.   For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/6/16:
Define that feeling of restlessness.  When you do, you will find that there is something you need to do or consider doing.  It is a nudge to get you moving in the right direction.  Quiet your inner being so that you can allow Me to show you the way you should go, says the LORD.  Rise up in confidence that I am your very present help.
Psalms 46:1  “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/5/16:
Watch for opportunities to help someone else.  I speak to nations of people who have become self-focused and concerned about their own needs and desires.  I would have you deliberately rise above selfishness to develop kindness and generosity.  Remember that reward always exceeds sacrifice, says the LORD.  You will not regret becoming a giver.
Luke 6:38  “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom.  For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  4/4/16:
Many people, prophets, teachers of the word, have made My Kingdom very complicated and perplexing.  And, many people come to the understanding in and of themselves they cannot do the things they are suppose to do.  But, I say unto you today, all you have to do is be full of Me.  Be full of My Holy Spirit.  Make an effort to be one with Me and find the power of the Spirit that lives within you.  Let Him lead and guide you, and let Him dominate your life.   Let Him be in control of your life rather than trying to be in control of it yourself, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/4/16:
Things that have been out of order that you have not yet dealt with have kept you from complete spiritual liberty.  Be obedient in taking care of the things that I bring to your attention, and you will discover greater freedom.  You will experience the anointing of ease as you position yourself to flow with the moving of My Spirit, says the LORD.
Colossians 2:5   “For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  4/1/16:
Take stock of your life before moving ahead.  You have been able to correct many of the things that have held you back, but there are still things to be done.  You will need to address old habits and patterns of behavior that continue to keep you in bondage.  This work must be done honestly and internally before you can put the past behind you once and for all, says the LORD.  Be strong and resolute.
Ephesians 6:10   “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the LORD and in the power of His might.”
