SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/30/16:
Look for and receive My blessings. It is My heart’s desire to bless you more than you could even imagine. You belong to Me, and I will look after you as long as you will seek Me with a whole heart and allow Me to intervene into your life, says the Lord. Let Me bring correction when necessary as you live and walk in the Spirit.
Ephesians 3:20-21   “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/29/16:
There are problems to be solved and situations that need to be resolved, but you cannot do this alone.  You need My help and My wisdom.  Seek Me before you proceed in any endeavor and wait until you have clear direction.  I will show you the way, says the LORD.
James 1:5   “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/28/16:
Listen with your heart to what I want to tell you, says the LORD. It is time for you to leave behind disappointments and regret. The situations that have evoked a feeling of failure and hopelessness will not serve your best interests in the days ahead. It is time to move on from where you are. Remember that your hope is in Me and not in your circumstances. I am with you to elevate you above the mundane into the sublime.
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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/27/16:
This is the beginning a new trend of identification.  You will develop your personal identity with greater precision and express yourself more completely apart from outside influences.  The result will be that you will know who you really are; who you are in Me and who I AM in you, says the LORD.  This will be a dynamic revelation that will carry you into a new era.
Philippians 3:10   “that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  12/26/16:
Come to Me and receive the blessings that I AM pouring out in this season.  These are indeed the days of overflowing blessings.  It is My great desire to reveal to you the things that are taking place in My Kingdom, and the things that are taking place in your circumstances.  I want to bring revelation so that you can deal with those things and gain the victory, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/26/16:
Step aside from the hustle-bustle of the world to come into My presence and establish yourself in a place of peace.  Come and commune with Me.  Let go of all anxiety and chaos and allow Me to bring healing and restoration to your soul, says the LORD. I AM your God, and you belong to Me.
Isaiah 41:10   “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/23/16:
Position yourself to be an instrument of My peace, which transcends conflict and confusion.  You are My people, called by My name to be representatives of the eternal Kingdom.  Do not squander opportunities to manifest the ministry of reconciliation. Be kind to one another, says the LORD.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19  “Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/22/16:
I have opened a window of opportunity for you to forgive and release those who have been against you.  They need this, but you need it more.  When you hold others in bondage, you yourself are in bondage to an even greater degree.  This is a particularly good time to set things straight in your mind and heart, says the LORD.  Let My love flow through you.
Matthew 6:15 “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/21/16:
Good boundaries are important to your safety both spiritually and naturally.  Stay close to Me, says the LORD, and let Me speak to your heart as I direct you to safe habitations.  I have good things in store for those who are obedient to the leading of My Spirit.  This will require a level of vigilance that you have yet to experience.  Take the next step.
1 Peter 5:8   “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/20/16:
Your desire to rise up and access the next spiritual level is in accordance with My will for you, says the LORD.  But, you must release yourself from restrictions that hold you back or make you afraid to let go of the past.  You can move on from here; set your heart to do so.  Breakthrough is imminent.
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.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  12/19/16:
I hear the LORD saying, “I AM love.  Love is the very essence of who I AM.  Love is My nature.  My love I distribute to all so that each and everyone that receives it may be blessed and may prosper in My Kingdom.  Receive and abide in the love I give to you.  In this coming year great will be the blessings that come to you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/19/116:
You will be tempted to give up and walk away from what I have called you to do and to be.  This is because the enemy has released a wave a complacency across the land that will cause you to feel ineffective and irrelevant.  Stay put and wait.  This too shall pass and then I will take you to a new level of life and expectancy, says the LORD.  Stay the course.
Psalms 61:2   “From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/16/16:
I have opened a path before you that will enable you to maneuver through hindrances and difficulties that you have endured for quite some time.  You will be able to experience a new level of freedom that has been almost impossible to attain.  You cannot do this on your own, but with My help and guidance you will now be able to move on, says the LORD. Prepare for breakthrough.
Psalms 27:13   “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —  12/15/16:
Be aware of My input into your life and thinking that will result in simplicity.  You will be able to achieve your desired goal without having to deal with complex procedures.  I will show you how to simplify processes that have become more difficult and convoluted than is necessary, 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 —  12/14/16:
There are those who follow and those who lead.  Do not follow someone who can’t lead.  But, I call you to allow the Holy Spirit to lead you in all things.  You can rely on Him to take you in the right direction and to show and teach exactly what you need to find and know.  You cannot put your faith in humanity, but you can certainly trust My Spirit to bring you by the way of destiny, says the LORD.
Matthew 15:14  “Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/13/16:
It may seem that what you have built spiritually is tenuous – that you may be hanging by a thread.  This is because you must be tried and tested from time to time as to your true nature and character.  What matters the most is the strength of your foundation in Me, says the LORD.  Make sure that your relationship with Me is firm and strong.
Luke 6:47-48  “Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock.  And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  12/12/16:
Listen, My people.  Listen.  I AM shouting from the roof tops; this is the season of great joy.  And, great joy I will release to you, which will bring strength of victory and power within you.  I know what is coming and I know the outcome of everything.  Receive that which I AM doing right now.  Let me deposit My joy in your heart, and despair will go.  Come into your rightful position of allowing Me to lead you into all joy, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/12/16:
Set yourself apart during these busy days to rest and to be grateful.  Gratitude is a strengthening spiritual force that is vital to your well-being.  Don’t forget who you are in Me or your purpose and destiny.  Take the time to regroup and settle yourself in peace and quiet as you reconnect with Me, says the LORD.
Job 22:21  “Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/9/16:
No matter the turmoil that seems to prevail around you, I would have you find the peace that is only found by being one with Me, says the LORD.  Refuse to allow chaos to define your life, but rather be defined by your relationship with Me.  And, establish yourself in quiet resolve.
Isaiah 30:15  “For thus says the LORD GOD, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/8/16:
Your struggle to stay in the flow of My Spirit is the result of a divided mind and heart.  There are too many things that compete with your sense of loyalty and kingdom focus.  It will take a supreme effort on your part to prioritize expenditures of thought and energy and to pay attention to matters of greater importance, says the LORD.
2 Corinthians 10:4-6  “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/7/16:
You can now look back to see how your decisions have affected your current position.  You have had multiple opportunities to respond to life’s circumstances through walking in the Spirit instead of reacting emotionally and mentally.  The goal is for you to walk in unity with Me, says the LORD.  And, the result will be spiritual maturity.
1 Corinthians 14:20   “Brethren, do not be children in understanding; however, in malice be babes, but in understanding be mature.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/6/16:
So many of you have been too hard on yourself, and it has amounted to self-deprecation. It may feel like humility, and you might even believe that you deserve it. But, condemnation is not from Me. Conviction is not the same as condemnation. Forgiveness is not just for others, but must be extended to yourself as well. Rise up and walk in the Spirit, says the LORD.
Romans 8:1  “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  12/5/16:
Arise, My people, and receive that which I have given.  Receive the joy of My presence within and upon your life.  Receive it.  Let joy overshadow you, so that it imparts greatness.  Speak in faith and proclaim My will so that you can gain the victory over your circumstances.  Establish yourself in thanksgiving and let My peace engulf you.  I AM with you and for you, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/5/16:
Be sensitive and aware of those things that bring weakness to your body, soul, and spirit, and fight to stay strong.  This will be your battle, but you are well able to overcome by and through My Spirit, says the LORD.  I AM with you to usher you into the realm of victory!
1 Corinthians 15:57   “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/2/16:
Many of you, My people, need to re-organize your thought process to exclude the mental clutter that has made you feel scattered. You can do this by focusing on that which is actually important to your life and spiritual well-being. The things that demand your time and attention are many and varied, and you would do well to prioritize and establish yourself in peace, says the LORD.
Isaiah 26:3   “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/1/16:
Issues will arise that demand your attention.  In dealing with these circumstances seek Me for wisdom and direction.  Refuse to allow unexpected situations to derail you. Keep your faith strong and establish yourself in the peace that is beyond your understanding.  Let Me lead you with the assurance that I am with you and for you, says the LORD.
Philippians 4:7  “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
