I speak to those who are feeling a little lost, and I tell you that you are not lost from My sight. I see you and know you. You are precious to Me, says the Lord. I will open the way for you to see that you have a hope and a future with Me in My Kingdom. If you make one tiny step towards Me, I will take a giant leap towards you. Seek Me with your whole heart.
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.”

Regardless of what you have had to endure, you must regroup. Put yourself in My perfect order and prepare for the next phase. There are things for you to learn and understand, things for you to overcome, and things that will delight your soul. I AM your strength. Set your heart on My will for you so that you can fulfill your destiny, says the Lord.
Psalm 84:5 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/26/18:
Look up! Be done with low-level vision. When you only look at your natural life and are only concerned about that, you lose sight of My presence. Again, I say, look up; look to Me. For, where your vision is fixed that is what you are concerned with and controlled by. So, look up and see Me, and then you will be controlled by My reality.

Make this a time of rejoicing. Bring to remembrance all that I have done on your behalf. And, be glad for what I will do if you ask in faith without doubting. I have made a way for you in times of despair and in your wilderness experiences. Even though you have endured times of darkness, light will shine again in your heart and life, says the Lord. Draw close to Me.
1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

For those of you who feel like you are walking through thick fog, this is a temporary condition. Let Me lead you through when you cannot see beyond where you are now. You belong to Me. I’ve got you. Do not be afraid. Soon the fog will lift, and you will begin to see clearly, says the Lord. This is a time to trust Me like never before.
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 — 2/22/18:
Wake up and stay awake. The days are evil, and this is not a time when you can snooze spiritually through life. It is imperative that you make a determination to consciously stay connected to Me, says the Lord. I AM your place of protection and safety. I alone can lead you out of darkness into light and life. Refuse to allow anything to disrupt your place of peace in Me.
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 — 2/21/18:
These are days when life seems to be bittersweet. You must be willing to take the bitter with the sweet, but also refuse to allow the bitterness to overwhelm you. Step back from your current experience so that you can see the larger picture. Only then can your faith be restored and your hope renewed. Know that I am leading you in ways that you cannot fathom at this moment, but eventually you will look back at this time and see the necessity of it, says the Lord. Be strong!
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

I saw a wooden boat turned upside down on the shoreline of a frozen lake, and the Lord said, “You have been beached for a season. The environment has been harsh and you have been relatively sidelined, but the time is near for you to launch out on the waters of My Spirit and do what you have been called to do. You will begin to navigate life in a way that will fulfill your destiny and be rewarding at the same time.”
Psalm 20:4 “May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/19/18:
These are the days in which you must stay connected to Me so that My Spirit can lead and guide you. These are indeed perilous and dangerous times that you live in. Therefore, live in a spiritual state of readiness. Ask of Me. Ask Me to reveal those things that concern you. Ask Me to reveal that which is hidden in the darkness of this present age. Draw close to Me, and I will draw close to you. I will be with you.

The Lord said, “I am releasing a wave of healing for those who have suffered abuse at the hands of others. You are no less loved or treasured in My Kingdom. You still have scars that will remind you from time to time of past trauma, but you will no longer feel the pain. I am transporting you above those disturbing experiences to a place in the Spirit where you can trust Me to deal gently with you.”
Isaiah 40:11 “He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.”

It is good to be reminded that your life on earth is temporary and that your life in the Spirit is eternal. My desire is that you will find Me and stay connected every day. Seek to do My will in every situation and never stray from the reality of My presence, says the Lord. Prioritize your days to reflect your relationship with Me.
1 John 2:17 “And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/15/18:
Draw close to Me so that you can find a place of peace. The stress that you have endured is taking a toll and has created a sense of fear and dread. That is because you have taken matters into your own hands instead of trusting Me to inspire and direct your activities, says the LORD. You must quiet your mind and emotions as you rise up in the Spirit and relax. I am with you!
Deuteronomy 31:8 “And the LORD, He is the one who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/14/18:
In a vision I saw bottles of rancid anointing oil, and I heard the LORD say, “Many of you, My people, need a fresh anointing of My Spirit. You have tried to survive spiritually on the memory of a time when you were aware of My presence. But, the past does not provide life in the Spirit now. You must ask again for a new infilling so that you can live and walk in the Spirit presently.”
Luke 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

Put your confidence in Me because I will never fail you. Refuse to allow difficult circumstances to undermine your belief and trust. I will give you the wisdom and strength to overcome. You can rely on Me to lead you through this time. It might feel like you are stuck and not moving forward, but very soon you will be able to continue on with a renewed sense of freedom and expectation, says the LORD.
2 Peter 3:14 “Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/12/18:
Be filled with My Holy Spirit, says the LORD. If you are full of Him, He will lead and guide you into all truth. He will reveal to you the things that have been hidden. The treasures hidden in darkness will be discovered as the Spirit Himself exposes those things that you have not yet seen. Therefore, become full to overflowing of My Spirit because these days will require My light. Walk as My children of light because darkness is coming upon the earth.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/12/18:
I have told you many times that your strength will be exhibited in simplicity, says the LORD. And, it is true even now. I am bringing you to a new level of simplicity in which you must let go of things from the past that have complicated your life and ability to grow and to prosper. I will show you things that have cast a shadow over you and hindered your ability to fulfill My purposes.
Proverbs 4:12 “When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/9/18:
Release yourself from all frustration and come into My rest and peace. I will make the path ahead of you straight and certain as I lead you in righteousness. Do not be afraid as you enter new territory that is unfamiliar to you. I AM yoked with you and will ease your burden, says the LORD.
Matthew 11:29-30 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/8/18:
Unusual things need to be accomplished before you can move on. You must be focused and lucid in this narrow time frame because you will be required to do things that are outside of the boundaries of your normal routine. You will need the wisdom that is beyond your own thoughts and consideration — the wisdom that only comes from Me, says the LORD. Ask and I will provide answers. Trust Me.
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 — 2/7/18:
The bombardment of too many voices and too many opinions will take you out of the place in the Spirit where you can hear My voice. Stop the outside noise by getting alone with Me in a quiet place, and listen. Separate yourself from conflict and confusion, and listen. Be still, and listen. I will speak. I will direct you by My Spirit, says the LORD.
Psalm 131:2 “Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/6/18:
When your peace is disturbed by circumstances, look to Me. I will lead you in the way of tranquility. Even though your soul is in turmoil, I AM with you to calm your storm. I will bring you into quiet rest and establish you in a place of peace. Be still and deliberately seek My face as you yield to the work that I am doing in you right now.
Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I AM God.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/5/18:
Though many of you have come through the valley of weeping, which we call the Valley of Baca, you will cause it to be a spring. For you shall be renewed and revived. You shall be restored. Consider the past, but prepare to go forward. I love you and care for you. I walk with you, and I will go before you and prepare you for that which is coming. I AM the LORD your God and you are Mine; you are a delight to Me, says the Most Holy.
Psalm 84:6 “As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a spring; the rain also covers it with pools.”

Gather your strength and allow only those things that require your attention to draw from that strength. This is still a time when you must simplify in order to fortify your life experience. Keep in mind that I am the source of your strength and the power of your purpose, says the LORD. I will impart to you a supernatural ability to discern and see with clarity as you make choices at this time.
Psalm 18:2 “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

Beloved, when things get rocky and cause you to feel unstable, remember that I am your place of stability and security. Look to Me for comfort and safety in these changing times. I will help you regroup. You will be able to move forward with confidence in the fact that I will lead you in the way you should go so that you do not falter, says the LORD.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”

Do not allow your faith to be shaken by adverse conditions and circumstances. Stand strong in what you know to be truth. I AM with you and for you. You are precious in My sight, says the LORD. Let Me bring restoration and healing to your soul. Let Me raise you up in strength and power. I AM your very present help in times of trouble.
Psalms 27:5 “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”
