SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/30/14:
Keep your restlessness and the craving for freedom from restraint within the boundaries of purity and righteous living.  Refuse to allow your fleshly desires or the enemy’s seductions to take you outside of the borders of your spiritual habitation, and don’t forget who you are in Me, says the Lord.  Maintain peace and stay safe.
1 Corinthians 10:23   “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/29/14:
Stop before you take another step. Take an inventory and make an evaluation of where you are spiritually.  Make sure you are awake, alert, and ready to move with Me to the next level.  I have many things to show you, which will require your heart and mind to be clear and receptive.  You will need to let go of everything that hinders your flow in the Spirit, says the Lord. Be clear and clean.
Galatians 5:7-9 “You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/28/14
Let the life of My Spirit spring up in you like a fresh flow of pure water.  Let it flood your soul and bring new hope and freedom.  It is time for you to completely let go of everything that has kept you bound in darkness.  Break out! Rise up!  Be filled with the joy of new life, says the Lord.
John 14:6  “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/27/14
Stay right with Me, says the Lord, and refuse to allow any criticism from others to cause you to become too introspective. As you seek to have a clean heart and pure motives, I will bring truth and conviction accompanied by mercy and grace. Good and lasting change can only come by the Spirit and not by some measure of carnal perfection.
Psalms 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/26/14:
I am going to bring you forth into this new season with many surprises.  The surprises that I bring forth will be for your benefit.   But, you will also be surprised by the work of the enemy against you.  Don’t lose heart.   Don’t give up on the path that I have prepared for you.  But, be available to move into that which I am doing, that which I am showing you, and that which is coming to you.  The abundance of My kingdom is coming forth in your life in ways that you have not yet seen.   Be encouraged.  Don’t be disheartened by the things you’ll have to endure and go through, but be encouraged in the process.   I am going to lead you and guide you.  And, you will be blessed in this season in great ways. Get ready to be surprised, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/26/14:  
The path that has been set before you in your kingdom journey is only found in the realm of the Spirit.  It is always ascending — taking you higher by way of understanding spiritual truth with greater clarity.  I want you to search and find truth in all that you hear, see, and do.  Everything around you contains a vital kingdom principle.  Look for it, says the Lord.  John 8:32   “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/23/14
Even though spiritual and natural storms rage, find the place of peace where your faith and trust are unshaken.  I am with you and for you even in the most difficult circumstances.  Refuse to allow fear or worry to steal your stability in the Spirit, says the Lord.  Be strong and courageous, and let Me lead you in triumph.
Luke 8:24   And they came to Him [Jesus] and awoke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!”  Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water.   And they ceased, and there was a calm.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/22/14
Take every opportunity to rise above the pettiness and distraction of the issues of life.  You can only do this as you deal with thoughts and emotions that are ungodly.  Look to Me and have faith that I will lead you to a higher place in the Spirit so that your thoughts, speech and actions reflect My character and nature, says the Lord.  Spiritual unity will be the result of establishing yourself in agreement with all that I am.
John 17:20-23   “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/21/14
Refuse to allow any darkness at all in your soul or spirit.  Walk in the light of truth.  Be kind and do good to everyone in your sphere of influence.  It is time to cleanse your heart of all offense and be a vessel of My love, says the Spirit of the Lord.  Rise up to a new and solid place of peace and righteousness in your heart.
Psalms 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/20/14:
Wake up and be vigilant.  The enemy is going to stir up envy and jealousy, which will cause you to make comparisons between yourself and others.  This will result in unnecessary offense.  But, you can easily escape this trap by getting away from self-focus and emotional neediness.  Walk and live in the Spirit, says the Lord.  Forgive and move on.
2 Corinthians 10:12   “For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/19/14:
Come and follow Me.  You have heard My word and you have embraced a glorious principle.  If you will apply that principle, the Kingdom of God will become brand new to you in ways that you have not understood and in ways you have not yet experienced.  For the kingdom reality is hidden in the realm of the spirit, the Kingdom of God.  And, that connecting point is within you so that you can experience the fullness of this day and of this new season, as well as that which I will do with you corporately and personally.  Don’t miss out on the opportunities that I am giving you to experience My presence and My kingdom in a fresh new way, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/19/14:
There is great strength and sense of purpose when you maintain spiritual connection with Me, says the Lord.  Be one with Me here and now, and refuse to allow your love for Me to become lukewarm.  If your focus shifts to the things of the world, or if you are distracted by circumstances, you will lose interest in things unseen.
Romans 1:20-21   “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/16/14:
Pay attention to the signs around you, for truly I will speak to you in a variety of ways and will show you things that you need to see in the natural realm so that you can understand what I am doing in the spiritual realm.  At this time you can make your plans, but you must hold them loosely as with an open hand so that you can be led by the Spirit.  Your next step, My guidance, and even your safety depends on your ability to follow, says the Lord.
Proverbs 16:9   “A man’s heart plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/15/14:
There is a delicate balance between maintaining your independence–being free from the control of others–and at the same time submitting to legitimate authority.  Finding that balance will require an understanding of the security you find in Me, says the Lord, and your subsequent faith and trust.  I am your place of safety and freedom.
Psalms 27:1  “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/14/14:
The changes that have seemed long in coming will now take place in rapid succession.  Be flexible.  I will carry you through the things that are beyond your ability to control.  Go with the flow, says the Lord.  There is no need to worry or to be afraid because I am with you to speak to your heart and to give you direction.  Yours is only to surrender in obedience.
Job 36:11   “If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/13/14:  
Guard your heart and mind so that you can establish yourself in a place of peace.  You need to be at peace before you can properly discern your spiritual environment.  And, you need to know the condition of that environment before you can do effective warfare against the enemy of your soul, says the Lord.  Use your authority to establish and maintain purity.   
Luke 10:19  “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power 


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/1214:
I hear the Lord saying, regarding this great struggle that you have been involved in, consider the life of the butterfly for he must struggle and continue to struggle until he comes out and breaks himself out of the bondage that has been placed to hold him in a position of birthing.  This has not been a bad place because you will come forth, and you will walk out.  You will bring God into the situation more profoundly than you ever have before.  And, your struggles with regard to that situation that you are thinking of in this moment will be resolved as you break out and gain flight even as the butterfly does. It is the season to come forth.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/12/14:
Set a watch for an attack that will bring your honor and integrity into question.  Don’t be surprised if the enemy uses someone you have been able to trust in the past to disparage your character.  You can do preventative warfare and break the assignment before it actually causes any harm, but you will have to exercise your discernment and spiritual authority, says the Lord.
Nahum 2:1    “He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road!  Strengthen your flanks!  Fortify your power mightily.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/9/14:  
You can do nothing about the past whether good or bad.  It is time to move forward and release all that is behind you.  There is nothing you can do to change what was.  Some of your decisions resulted in spiritual seeds sown that produced regret.  But, you can make better choices now that will reap a healthier and more robust harvest.  Choose wisely, says the Lord, for you stand on the threshold of a new beginning and new opportunities.
Galatians 6:7  “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/8/14:
So much has changed that you wonder where you stand, and the enemy will try to exploit this position with an identity crisis and lies.  You must find your identity in Me by drawing closer.  You are entering a new season in which I will use you and establish you in ways you have not considered.  Let Me bring your true, eternal identity to the forefront.  Find your security in your unshakable relationship with Me, says the Lord.
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  — 5/7/14:
Whatever you do it is up to you and your choices as to whether or not you produce spiritual life and establish peace.  That is the challenge of every day in reaction to each situation and opportunity.  You can either produce life or death.  You can either be kind and generous in your attitudes towards others or not.  Refuse the temptation to be self-centered and insensitive, says the Lord.  Be led by My Spirit.
Proverbs 18:21  “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/6/14:  
Watch for open doors that will bring you closer to Me, says the Lord.  I will make a way for My Church to come into perfect order, but each of you as a member of My body must exercise your will and desire to come higher.  Set your heart and mind to get your priorities in order and actually choose to put Me and My kingdom first.  Then, everything else will fall into line.
Ephesians 4:14-16  “…we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ-from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/5/14:
Have I not said that I am with you?  Have I not said that I will bring you forth in this season?  Have I not said that I would speak through the prophets, for your understanding of those things that are necessary to receive so that you can move forward in this season in a brand new way, in victory, in My kingdom, says the Lord.  For, I will not disappoint you, even as many have become disappointed.  I am for you.  I will lead you, guide you, cleanse you, and anoint you so that the fullness of that work which I am doing in these days is yours to receive.  So, My children, simply ask and you shall receive that, which I am doing.  This day, be anointed and receive that yoke breaking anointing that I am providing for you.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/5/14:  
I would have you reflect on the past year.  You were faced with great and varied challenges, but I was with you every step of the way and gave you the grace to overcome.   You are stronger and have exhibited more resilience than you ever would have imagined.  This is growth.  Never forget how I brought you through not only in victory but in a greater understanding and awareness of My kingdom and My presence, says the Lord.  Rejoice!  1 John 5:4   For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.  And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/2/14:   
Resist the temptation to follow distractions that lead you away from Me.  Not everything that is a diversion from what is normal for you is a distraction.  You will have to evaluate whether or not you are getting further away from relationship with Me or coming closer as a result of your activities.  Let Me lead you in the way you should go, and you will be spiritually strengthened, says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 7:35   “And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/1/14:
As new experiences come your way, use your discernment to separate out what is good for you from what is not. You cannot allow curiosity and a desire to experience new things to lead you astray. What is good for you is being in the flow of My Spirit as you establish yourself in divine order. Only then can you fulfill your purpose according to My perfect plan, says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 10:23   “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.”
