SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/31/13:
This is a time when you must persevere.  There will be snags and setbacks, but you can gain the victory as long as you refuse to view yourself as a victim or a failure.  Don’t give up or lose heart.  Stay calm.  Press on with determinationI am the source of your strength and your ability to do what is set before you.  Put your confidence in Me, says the Lord.
Psalms 118:8   “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/30/13:
You will be required to do things that are outside of your comfort zone, but I am with you to help you do difficult things.  I will show you the way and give you the wisdom necessary to accomplish all that is necessary.  Put aside all fear and dread and face your challenges with bold assurance that you are well able to do all that is required, says the Lord.
Philippians 4:13   “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/29/13:
Even though change is sometimes frightening and difficult, you will begin to see the advantage in the changes that are now taking place.  Things that are no longer relevant or advantageous to your walk in the Spirit will suddenly be removed.  And, you will be relieved and free rather than experiencing a sense of regret or loss.  Set your heart to be willing to let go, says the Lord.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8    “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to gain, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/28/13:
You are making progress whether or not it is apparent to you.  The real key is that you stay in absolute, unwavering faith in Me to bring you through this difficult process to perfection.  Your attitude will reveal the true nature of your belief.  Stand strong in what you know to be the truth of the situation, and refuse to allow fear to have any place in you at all, says the Lord.  Know that I am with you and for you.
Psalm 91:1-7     “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.  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.  A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/27/13:
Get ready to move with the flow of this spiritual river. There is a new depth today. There is a spiritual order coming that will release My power through My vessels. It will no longer be a matter of hoping that I will move; you will walk in full authority because I am with you, for I will bring you into a greater depth of My power. Do the work to break the powers of darkness that have restricted the fullness of My flow, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/27/13:
Set a watch for those who would put you under the burden of obligation.  I would have you be free to journey on with Me.  I call you to that place of freedom to be led by My Spirit to just do the next thing, without a sense of obligation or duty to fulfill the expectations of others.  Refuse to be a man-pleaser, says the Lord, but rather seek to serve Me with sincerity of heart.
2 Corinthians 1:12 For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/24/13:
I am uncovering that which has been hidden.  I will bring all pretense and hypocrisy to light so that you can be free to have a vital and genuine connection with Me, says the Lord.  Our relationship depends on complete honesty and pure motivations.  You cannot see things around you in the light of truth and in accurate discernment when you are keeping things hidden in darkness.  Come to the light! 
Matthew 10:26    “Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/23/13:
Beloved, I know that your flow in the Spirit has seemed distant and undefined.  This is because your have been out of your comfort zone and at times felt like you were out of control.  The truth is that you are in the flow of My Spirit, but this particular flow is not what you have become accustomed to.  You are in a time of intense training to develop a deeper level of discernment.  Let Me take you deeper, says the Lord.
Matthew 16:24   “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/22/13:
Take time to re-evaluate your life.  Take stock to see what is really important to your well-being on every level.  But, remember to put first things first, and that would be your spiritual wellness.  I am doing a particular work in this season to prepare My people, says the Lord, to be dedicated to My kingdom and consecrated to do and to be all that I have called you to.  This is not a work according to man’s doctrine or end-time scenarios.  This is a true spiritual work that will begin and end with your vital connection with Me.
Psalms 10:17   ”LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  – 5/21/13:
I have given you the right of passage through these dire straits and difficult ways.  I will show you the way through every situation with precision and extraordinary discernment and insight.  These are days to keep your mouth shut and learn to look and listen so that you can see and hear spiritually, says the Lord.  Trust Me to lead you to safety.
Psalms 12:5    “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — : 5/20/13:
On this day my question before the Lord was, “What, Lord, what? What is this heaviness, this whirlwind that seems to bring chaotic conditions and uncertainty? A time, Lord when it seems I must remain very quiet to maintain my peace, a time when I just want to hide and watch, for my soul is restless, and my spirit is disquieted within me.” And this was His answer to me: Tell My children that this is the time of renewal from the washing of the blood and water to the cleansing by wind and fire. In this visitation I am cleansing My bride. I am in process of restoring My church. I am restoring the revelation of the power of My blood that will be birthed into the hearts of the quiet ones, and it shall come with the wind and fire of Pentecost. If My children shall yield, every bondage will now be broken, and resurrection life will spring forth. Refuse to sow to the flesh in these times of whirlwinds. Instead, let My wind remove from you the old things and refuse to sow to the winds of self-consciousness that Satan is bringing. It is now time to discern between My cleansing wind and Satan’s winds of adversity, says Almighty God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/20/13:
Brace yourself for shaking.  Everything that can be shaken is being shaken.  This is a time when everything that cannot withstand this spiritual earthquake will be torn down and become rubble.  You will be tempted to try to keep things together and protect what cannot be saved.  Let the storm have it’s way and come to completion before you try to rebuild, says the Lord.
Hebrews 12:27    “Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/17/2013:
I am making a very clear distinction between responses that come by way of My Spirit and those that emanate from religious culture.  I will bring to light and reveal every expression that does not come from a pure spirit, says the Lord.  The time of regeneration will begin with awareness and willingness to follow Me with a heart of love.  Be transformed!
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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/16/2013:
Beloved, I am doing a unique and powerful work in you that will change how you see not only My kingdom, but the world.  It will be as though a fog has lifted.  You will be able to see with greater clarity than ever and to move forward with certainty.  Presumption will melt away as you begin to see everything for what it is and how it relates to you.  Press through your self-focus into the spiritual light of truth, says the Lord.
Psalms 117:2   “For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/15/2012:
I would have you, My people, walk in sincerity and without pretense.  Be who you are in Me, and that will allow the manifestation of My Spirit to flow through you unhindered.  However, if you are afraid to be rejected and seek acceptance and approval, those around you will only see your insecurity even when you try to be religious.  These are times when you can experience greater freedom on all levels, says the Lord.
1 Timothy 1:5    “Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/14/2013:
The time of change has come.  You will never be the same again, but I have things to teach and to show you that you could not have received until now.  These will be times to remember and to cherish even though they seem to be beyond your ability to fully deal with presently, says the Lord.  It’s not your power that will bring you through; it is Mine!
Zechariah 4:6b   “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” Says the LORD of hosts.


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/13/13:
The Spirit of the Lord is speaking to me about these days of destiny before us, and He is calling them “defining days.” He says to you, watch for defining days, for there are not a few but many in the weeks and the months before you. Watch now because He has saved the best for last, and in His defining moments He will restore and equip His church to walk in the fullness of His power.  God is bringing forth a glorious church without spot or wrinkle.  Besetting sins will fall by the wayside and drop off.  Get ready to get free of those things you’ve struggled with.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/13/13:
If you will pay close attention, you will see that you are experiencing vital, life-changing opportunities that will give greater spiritual perspective.  These times are to be valued and not wasted.  Embrace and optimize every chance given to grow in wisdom and understanding, as well as to advance in the spirit realm, says the Lord, and be grateful.
Colossians 3:15 “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/10/13:
Know, My beloved, that I have been with you and protected you; even carried you in times when you were not able. Discouragement is not an option. Faith and trust will sustain you and open the door to victory. Be courageous and strong. Refuse to let your circumstances take you down the slippery slope of despair, says the Lord.
Psalms 20:2 “May He send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/9/13:
Let the moving of My Spirit be your motivation as you navigate through the next weeks and months.  You will be required to make some changes to accommodate this new level of spiritual experience.  Stay calm and maintain your 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 — 5/8/13:
it is important for you recover from recent stress by leaning on Me.  Be strong.  Don’t give up.  All things that represent a problem is only a stepping stone to understanding the work of My kingdom more completely.  Keep looking up, says the LORD.  Never forget that I am leading you to victory.
Philippians 3:12   “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”

Have you heard and do you know that it is indeed the season of the rain, My children?  For, if you will watch the signs given in the natural you will know that a new season has been birthed.  And, each season that comes must go forth in the power of that which I am doing.  The rain comes forth to water that seed that you are planting even today; the seed that will become your harvest in the future.  Those things that pertain to you can be put in good ground this day, says the Lord God, if you will but believe and obey.  So take out your bag of seed and sow generously.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/7/13:
Be flexible.  I will begin to restructure many areas of your life to enhance the spiritual aspects of your existence.  You will be pleased with the results, but only if you yield in complete obedience to this process.  You will be tempted to drag your feet in response to change, but things will go much better if you will embrace this fresh wind of My Spirit with a whole heart, says the Lord.
John 3:8   “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Watch for distractions devised by the enemy to keep you from exercising your power to stop him.  I have given you the authority to trample him underfoot, but you must be alert enough to discern his attacks and resist him, says the Lord.  He will try to convince you that his work against you is your fault.  The devil is a liar!
Luke 10:19   “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
