SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/31/17:
Step back and take a broad view of where you are spiritually and how you got here. Renew yourself in the foundation of what you believe for the purpose of examination to see if you have strayed from that which you value the most. Do not compromise those elements of vital spiritual importance, but rather reinforce what you know to be righteous, says the LORD. You belong to Me!
Isaiah 43:1b “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.”

If you will allow it, I will take you to places in spirit that you need to see and understand. The things that I show you will bring clarity to positions of hopelessness and despair. New revelation of where you are and where you have been will restore hope, and you will again place your faith and trust in Me, says the LORD. I AM the solid rock on which you can stand.
Psalms 42:5 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.”

I want you to recognize that there are things that you can fix or do something about and things that are beyond your reach or control. Learn to know the difference between where you have power and where you do not, says the LORD. And, remember that nothing is impossible for Me. I can do what you can’t. Ask Me for help. Ask for wisdom and direction.
Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing will be impossible.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 8/28/17:
You’ve become aware of the darkness–the power of the darkness that has prevailed over your life. Get out of the darkness. Reject it. Walk in the authority of God’s light and be a son of His light. You have come into the Kingdom of God’s love. Be strong in the LORD and the power of His might. He loves you, cares for you, and will be one with you.

Your journey has been long and arduous, but I tell you honestly that you will begin to experience breakthrough. It will be in small things at first as you gain confidence and strength to move forward. Stay with what you know to be right and good. Seek to know Me more profoundly than ever, says the LORD. I am with you!
John 14:17 “The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/25/17:
To those who feel like you are in the doldrums with no wind in your sails and that you’re not getting anywhere, settle down. Everything is happening in a perfect timing that you cannot understand yet. There are things that need to come into line with My plans and purposes before you can move forward, says the LORD. Be patient.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 “The end of a thing is better than its beginning; the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/24/17:
You can change your life’s course and destination by giving more attention to that which is in agreement with My will and purposes. Set you mind on things that will build you up instead of things that will tear you down. Establish yourself in hope and be done with discouragement and despair, says the LORD. For, I AM truly with you to bring you to a place of victory over self-destruction.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/23/17:
Look for Me, says the LORD. Come to Me. Allow me to strengthen your spirit, soul, and body. I will rejuvenate you and bring satisfaction akin to a full meal for a starving man or fresh water for a thirsty soul. Receive healing. Be lifted up and encouraged. I am available to those who earnestly seek.
Psalm 119:2 “Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart’!
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/22/17:
Be patient. Your life is a process of singular events. Refuse to get short-sighted and focused on what you would like to see happen now. Trust Me to orchestrate your steps that will produce a result that will reflect divine order in your life, says the LORD. Relax and enjoy the journey.
James 1:4 “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 8/21/17:
I hear bells in Heaven right now, which usually go with Christmas. But, in this case there is a ringing of the bells of Heaven to draw your attention to the Light of Jesus Christ. To draw your attention back to the LORD. To draw your attention away from the things that are going wrong on this earth. To draw your attention to His Kingdom and the Kingdom you abide in. He is calling to you today to allow His bells, the music of Heaven, to invade your life and carry you on to the end of this age. With great hope in His Spirit, knowing absolutely that He is with you, for you and wants to be a part of what you are doing in this world and will be so if you just say, here I AM LORD, come walk with me.

Press through the darkness, and resist the work of degradation against you and humanity. Continue to push until your existence is found in My Kingdom where truth and righteousness prevail. This is all a matter of where you invest your time, energy, thoughts, emotions and will. You do not have to subject yourself to the work of the enemy even though it seems to be pervasive, says the LORD.
Romans 11:11-14 “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the LORD Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

If you need wisdom, ask Me. You can ask a number of other people, and they will all give you an opinion based on their own ideas and intellect. But, if you ask Me, I will give you truth as it relates to your spiritual and natural condition. Don’t be afraid to appear in My presence to ask for whatever you need, says the LORD.
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/17/17:
It is My desire that you continue to advance in spiritual understanding and discernment. But, your human sympathies and focus on worldly issues will impede your progress. You must strive to be focused on being one with Me. Only then will you be able to stay on track spiritually. Refuse to allow anyone or anything to derail you from eternal purpose, says the LORD.
Ephesians 4:1-3 “I, therefore, the prisoner of the LORD, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/16/17:
Do not underestimate your position in the Kingdom. Many of you feel like you are ineffective and even expendable. You may not be called to reach multitudes with the Gospel, but you can establish righteousness and peace where you are. You can exhibit the fruit of the Spirit in everything you are and do, says the LORD. You can bring love where there is hatred, truth where there is deception, and acceptance for all people. You can make a difference.
Galatians 5:22-23a “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

I am reminded of two visions that were given to me recently. One was of someone standing on the pivotal point of a teeter-totter trying to keep it in a horizontal position. The other was a man crossing a deep chasm using two logs as a bridge. There were two key elements required–focus and balance. And, I heard the LORD say, “It will be vital for you to keep Me in view as your central point of attention while maintaining solid footing and equilibrium. Be steadfast.”
Hebrews 3:14 “For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 8/14/17:
Come up! Come up higher! Come to Me in faith. Come to Me in faith believing that the thing that I have promised to do in this season will be done in your life. Believe that which I have spoken so I can do the work in you and for you. And, you will know beyond a shadow of doubt that this is the work I am doing this season, says the LORD.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/14/17:
When you come into My presence, you must do so quietly and tenderly – your mind and emotions calm and still. Enter in with a heart to perceive and ready to receive that which I want to impart, says the LORD. Leave everything behind except your desire to know Me.
Psalms 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/11/17:
Beloved, I don’t want you to lament your failures or celebrate your successes; I want you to stay focused on Me and eternal things. It is too easy to dump down into self-condemnation and rise up into pride because of the way you navigate your circumstances. This is vanity and grasping for the wind. Keep you mind on the Kingdom, which has the greatest value, says the LORD.
1 Peter 1:13 “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/10/17:
Prepare for more change as destiny unfolds both for individuals and nations. Now is the time when you personally need to reevaluate the things that really matter in your life and weed out that which has become a nuisance to your existence, says the LORD. I will help you with that evaluation by giving you extraordinary wisdom.
Hebrews 5:14 “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/9/17:
I speak to those who have a tendency to judge and criticize people around you. Be aware that if you are critical you will be criticized. It is a product of the spiritual law of sowing and reaping. If you do not want to be judged, you must be willing to overlook what you consider to be flaws in them and know that I love them as I love you, says the LORD.
Luke 6:41-42 “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, “Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,” when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.”

Be aware that what you experience in your carnal existence will provide opportunities to learn and grow spiritually. It is up to you to make the most of your encounters and observations of events as they happen. Even though you live life in a carnal body, you can also live and walk in the Spirit, says the LORD.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 8/7/17:
I want you to be well. I want you to be spiritually well. I want your soul to prosper. I want your body to be found in health. It is my great desire to bring healing power upon you in this time frame, beginning right now so that you will be strong. I want you to be free from the spirits of infirmity that have come to you to plague you, to hold you down, to discourage you and to bring disappointment into your life. So, I want you to rise up right now and believe that this is what I’m doing in this moment. I want you to rise up now in your position of faith and receive that which I am doing. Receive the flow and healing power coming to you this moment. Be energized, be helped, be strong, says the LORD.

Your spiritual journey is not measured in days, weeks or months. It is measured by acts of obedience. There are vital principles that must be conceived of and implemented before you can move to the next level. Ask Me to give you understanding of the work being done in you at this moment so that you can more completely cooperate with what I am doing, says the LORD.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/4/17:
You can find a sense of freedom when you stay close to Me, says the LORD. As you walk in the Spirit you will become aware that you are flowing free. Submit to Me, and I will take you to places you never dreamed possible. You will be delighted with new-found liberty as you trust Me to steer you in the right direction.
John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/3/17:
There are challenges that you must work your way through, but it is My desire that you confront those issues without getting into conflict. Refuse to play the blame game, but rather seek to find what it is in yourself that needs to be brought into divine order. Only through maintaining peace will you gain the understanding necessary to overcome, says the LORD.
Philippians 4:7 “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/2/17:
When things seem to be falling apart–not making sense. Be quiet and do not allow worry or fear to dictate your actions. Come to Me for wisdom and clarity. Exercise your faith to know that I will show you what to do and the way you should go. Wait for My leading, says the LORD.
Jeremiah 10:23 “O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/1/17:
Do not despair. Things are not as they seem. It is not as bleak as you think. It feels ominous, but I know the end from the beginning, and I will cause you to have experiences that will prepare you for the unfolding of My will. Do not be afraid or disappointed. You belong to Me, and I know more about what you need than you do. Trust Me with your future, says the LORD.
1 Corinthians 2:9 “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.””
