SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/31/16:
Take advantage of opportunities to be creative–in your thinking process and problem solving and in artistic expression.  There is extraordinary grace at this time to do things beyond your normal routine.  Allow My Spirit to heighten your senses and abilities, says the Lord.  This is a new day of adventuring with Me.
Romans 8:14   “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS   —  3/30/16:
For those of you who feel like your life has stalled out or is going nowhere, you have been in a time of distillation.  This was a particular test and necessary in finding and understanding the essence of who you are.   You can now go forward with greater purity and efficiency because of this valuable spiritual process, says the Lord.  Prepare for greater things.
Matthew 5:8   “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/29/16:
I know the difficulties that you face and the dilemmas that you encounter, and I want you to be aware that I AM with you to give you wisdom and direction in every decision.  But, you must deliberately seek Me in all things.  Let Me show you the way that you should go, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid.
Joshua 1:9  “Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  3/28/16
What day is it, My children?  Is it not the Day of resurrection and the Day of My power?  I have called you to the forefront of this hour to proclaim the Day and to proclaim the Way and to release the blessings.  I say to you that the seeds for the Jubilee blessings have been sown according to My word, and I will fulfill what I have spoken, and I will bring forth the harvest of that which has been sown.  You know that I am faithful in all of My ways. Freely you have received; freely give and watch as the harvest comes.  Receive what has been given to you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/28/16:
You feel and act like you have a fire shut up in your bones.  Let that fire express itself in kingdom truth instead of finding a flesh outlet to relieve the restlessness.  This is a time when you can learn to know the difference between flesh and spirit and be able to choose righteously, says the Lord.
Jeremiah 20:9b  “But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/25/16:
I saw a mime in a vision, and I asked the Lord what this could mean. He said, “I want you to demonstrate truth and spiritual reality. To do this you will have to keep your mouth shut and show through your actions that which others need to see to understand. There are too many mouths and not enough demonstrators. Let Me do My word through you.”
John 10:37-38   “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/24/16:
In a vision I saw a light that was about as big around as a pencil; it reminded me of a laser beam.  Then, the light began to grow so that it seemed to engulf my entire body.  From there it spread out to include my immediate surroundings and kept growing to illuminate the entire room.  And, I heard the Lord say, “Let My light shine through you until all darkness is banished from your environment.”
Matthew 5:14   “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/23/16:
Your desire to be special or to stand out in some way is misplaced.  Selfish ambition will derail your spiritual journey and is founded on insecurity.  Find your sense of value in being in the secret place of My presence, says the Lord.  Your motivation for doing what you do must be pure and righteous.  Humility is a very attractive characteristic.
Psalms 91:1   “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/22/16:
You cannot stay in the flow of My Spirit and still obsess about your own perfection or lack of perfection.  Your self-focus will keep you tied to flesh and will prevent your spiritual progression.  Now is a time when you can exchange the temporary for the eternal, which is necessary to your well-being.  Let go of everything that keeps you tied to worldly concerns, says the Lord.
Matthew 16:26  “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  3/21/16:
I (Bill) was just sitting, and all of a sudden it was like Christ walked into the room.  I could not see Him physically but there was an elevation of life, well-being, strength, light, that just rose up in that room and it lasted for a couple of hours.  And, then I said, Lord what is this about?  This is what I’m going to bring to My people this season.  I AM going to bring them life, more life than they have ever had; more strength than they have ever had; more light than they have ever had.  So, let them know to be ready for and aware of it.  When it comes they will recognize it and it will be good for them. That’s His present word.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/21/16:
Keep your emotions in check and refuse to allow discouragement to drag you down to the depths.  Do not let anything get you down and keep you down.  Take every opportunity to encourage yourself by believing My word, says the Lord, and rise above the temporary to embrace that which is eternal.
1 Samuel 30:6   “Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/18/16:
Temptations will come to regret past decisions and actions, but I tell you that you must leave it all behind.  You cannot change the past, but you can make changes that will affect your future.  Go forward with the faith that I have a plan and purpose for your life.  Get in the flow of My Spirit and let Me lead the way, says the Lord.
Isaiah 42:16  “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/17/16:
Take your rightful position in My kingdom by believing that you belong to Me.  If you are indeed born of the Spirit, then you need to live as though you are.  Do you profess to believe and have faith in Me, and yet fail to demonstrate righteousness in your life?  Be done with hypocrisy.  Live and walk in the Spirit, says the Lord. 
Proverbs 11:9  “The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous will be delivered.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/16/16:
Beloved, it is My desire that you occupy the spiritual space that you have been given authority over.  Be present and active in this space.  Permit no evil to violate your boundaries.  Resist and depose the enemy and his works where you find him.  Establish and maintain your borders for as long as it takes, says the Lord.
Luke 19:13b  “Occupy till I come.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/15/16:
These days will require strength and focus for you to make it through successfully.  And, when things become difficult you must resist the temptation to give in to stress.  Be calm and lean on Me for all that you need.  I am with you and for you, says the Lord.  Do not despair.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9    “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.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  3/14/16:
You can do this! You are called as My children to reap the benefits that I have set forth in My word.  For, it will be given to those who abide in My kingdom, which will manifest in your life in a fresh way.  So, from this point on make a determination that you can be what I have called you to be.  You can do what I have said you can do.  You can come higher into the realm of the Spirit and be more effective.  You can see My power move in your life, which will cause your life to become inspired.  Your journey into faith can be exciting.  The glory of the kingdom will be demonstrated, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/14/16:
I speak to the many who have forgotten that you are not victims.  You must stop wallowing in self-pity.  Get up, dust yourself off, and begin to move forward with strength and confidence in My ability in you to overcome, says the Lord.  Be strong!
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  —  3/11/16:
When you are afraid that things will not work out the way you hoped or imagined, just be quiet.  Silence is a space in which I can bring truth that will overcome assumptions.  Know that you belong to Me, and I will cause you to see what needs to be done in every situation.  Let me lead you out of this maze of confusion and fear, says the Lord.
Psalms 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  —  3/10/16:
Refuse to allow worry to overtake you in your current situation.  Instead, put your trust completely in Me to do what you cannot accomplish on your own.  There are things that are beyond your control that require divine intervention.  Let Me bring light into darkness to reveal all that you need to understand, says the Lord.
Matthew 6:27   “Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/9/16:
I will give you the wisdom and ability to press through current restrictions into a time of acceleration.  You will only be able to do this through righteousness and purity of heart.  If you will position yourself in the flow of My Spirit, you will be able to accomplish much more with less effort, says the Lord.  Take the next step of elevation.
2 Timothy 2:22  “Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/8/16:
When your forward momentum seems to have stalled, be still.  Flailing around will only set you back.  There is no need to worry that you have lost ground.  This is just a “selah” moment to pause and reflect.  You must allow what you have learned to become part of who you are before you push forward again, says the Lord.
Psalms 32:7  “You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  3/7/16:
You are standing in a pivotal position by which you can turn and have things change in your life. Turn! Just turn and let My word bring you into spiritual reality. Allow revelation and wisdom to become active in your life, and your faith will advance so that you will receive everything that I desire for you to have in this season, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/7/16:
Frustration is your enemy.  You cannot accomplish what you wish when you allow your emotions to take over in any situation.  Quiet your soul, and let Me bring the wisdom you need to do all that is necessary.  Listen for My instructions, says the Lord.
Proverbs 17:27   “He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/4/16:
Regardless of the chaos and bluster in the world, I would have you walk in perfect peace as you stay present with Me. This is a new day, and you can make it a good day if you will walk in faith and embrace My power to accomplish all that I have set before you at this time, says the Lord. Stay focused on spiritual reality and give no place for the works of darkness. Psalm 91:5-6   “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/3/16:
Some reorganization is required for you to live at optimum health and benefit.  I will show you what you can do to eliminate things that waste your time, your resources, and your energy.  But, you must be willing to put forth the effort to make the changes that will be beneficial in the long run, says the Lord.  Your well-being is important to Me.
3 John 1:2   “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/2/16:
Take inventory.  There are things that have gone undone in your life and circumstances, and you will need to make adjustments at this time.  Doing what requires your attention will clear the path ahead for you to make progress.  Whatever you refuse to take care of now will create distractions that will keep you from vital spiritual focus in the days ahead, says the Lord.
Proverbs 4:18   “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  3/1/16:
Position yourself for correction.  You have done things that haven’t been right, but that can still be fixed.  This is a time to take advantage of every opportunity to put the things in order that are brought to your attention, says the Lord.  This will ultimately give you the freedom to move forward with a clear conscience.
Revelation 3:19   “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten.  Therefore be zealous and repent.”
