SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/29/15:
Strong and silent; I want you to be strong and silent.  When you are quiet, you can begin to do an inner work of knowing Me that will become a deep resource for sincerity and resolve.  Your faith depends on the depth of that relationship.  Become a deep well of life in the Spirit, says the Lord.
Ephesians 3:14-19  “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/28/15:
You may be reeling from recent events, but I am bringing you to a new place of equilibrium and balance.  I will give you the strength to put the past behind and move forward with faith and confidence.  Refuse the temptation to condemn yourself with thoughts of regret.  I am still with you, 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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/27/15:
I am looking for a people who have purified their hearts and separated themselves from all corruption to seek My face, says the Lord.  I call you to be part of that company.  Make a decision.  Allow My Spirit to live in you.  Refuse to allow worldly concerns to take you away from complete unity with Me.  Come.
2 Corinthians 6:17  “Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.””

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/26/15:
Whether it seems like it or not, the truth is that everything that you experience and endure will work out for your ultimate and eternal good.  Do not look at your disappointments with finality, but look at your challenges as opportunities to come closer to Me, says the Lord, and to lean on Me more completely.   You can come through every situation with greater endurance and faith.  Trust Me.
James 1:2-4    “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  5/25/15:
I know you.  I know the struggles that you have been through.  I know the hardships that you have had to walk through.  I know the work of the enemy against you.  I know what’s happened.  I know that you have been a sign spoken against.  I know that there are people that have risen up in conflict with you.  I say to you right now, I know your heart and that your heart is for Me.  Understand that I will not forsake you.  Never will I leave you.  For, I am leading you to a fresh pasture.  I’m leading you to new ground.  I’m leading you into the place of My Glory, even in these days.  And, it begins this very moment and this time that as you realize that I am one with you that you will know that everything is going to be okay.  Just walk.  Walk with Me.  Believe in Me.  Trust in Me to bring you into the freshness of a new day this very season, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/25/15:
The transition that you are in at this time is not a simple transition between seasons of your life, but is a transition from one era to another.  It is more significant than you have realized.  What is coming in the next span of time will, in many ways, bring to fruition that which you have worked for in the past decade.  Changes that you make in the near future will produce significant and lasting results, says the Lord.  Move forward with confidence that I am leading you.   Follow Me.
Mark 8:34   “When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever 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  —  5/22/15:
Take time to regain perspective.  You may have to look back to see how far you have come before you can see clearly where you are and where you are going.  Remember that as you yield to Me, says the Lord, I direct your steps along the path to your ultimate destination.  There is no need to worry or to have regrets.  Your experiences and challenges have strengthened your faith as you are being transformed into My image.
2 Corinthians 3:18   “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/21/15:
Chaos in your surroundings will make it hard to find peace within your soul.  The only way you can do that is to rise up in the realm of the Spirit and allow Me to establish a sense of quiet calm.  Refuse to allow external disturbances to bring fear, dread, or frantic emotional responses.   The disruptions that have been disquieting will soon pass, 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  —  5/20/15:
In a vision I saw a flock of sheep on a beautiful and hilly meadow.  They were grazing peacefully when joy came upon them, and they began to play and run and jump.  The joy seemed to be contagious.  And, I heard the Lord say, “I am unleashing a wave of peace and joy that will be undeniable.  It cannot be missed or overlooked.  Allow it to move you.  It will bring new spiritual life.  This awakening will not be a rude and noisy wake-up call; it will be gentle and filled with peace.  It will take you to a new level of relationship with Me.  Be sensitive to this moving of My Spirit.”
Romans 13:11   “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/19/15:
Beloved, I would have you use your losses and setbacks to draw near to Me.  Allow your faith to be perfected in the midst of difficult situations as you seek to know Me and My purposes more completely.  Even in darkness I am near, says the Lord.  Remember that I am your help and comfort in times of need.
Psalms 119:50  “This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your word has given me life.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  5/18/15:
You are not only My children, but you have the potential to be My friends.  And, as friendship begins to come alive within your spirit, you will ask and receive those things that you need.  You will receive even the things that you have not asked for because I know before you ask exactly what it is that you need.  So, all that is provided for you will become yours because you are one with Me and walking with Me; because you have found that position of unity of spirit.  And, by the Spirit, you shall not only know those things that pertain to you and the life that you are living, but you shall also be positioned in your faith to receive all that I have spoken to you in these days, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/18/15:
You are the sum total of your opportunities and choices in life, and it would be good for you to review the past briefly to understand more completely where you are now and how you got here.  There are adjustments to be made at this juncture, and the more understanding you have, the better able you are to have sound judgment, says the Lord.  Let Me lead you through these critical decisions.
Joel 3:14   “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 5/15/15:
There is a difference between surviving and thriving.  You can survive many things and even escape disaster by the skin of your teeth, but it is My will for you to thrive in the midst of conflict and upheaval.  I would have you think of everything that you encounter and endure as an opportunity to grow spiritually.  View every circumstance as a way to establish yourself in Me, says the Lord.
John 17:22-23  “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  —  5/14/15:
You have become ambivalent–uncertain of what you should do or how you should feel.  The only way out of this dilemma is to ask for wisdom and rely on My Spirit.  I remain the same, says the Lord.  My Word is true, and My guidance is sure.  You can count on Me to lead you in a way that is right for you and those around you.
Hebrews 13:8   “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/13/15:
I know your desire to prosper in all things, and I hear your heart-felt prayers.  Yet, it is important to maintain the proper balance of what you retain and what you give.  It is truly more blessed to give than to receive.  Let Me establish in you a heart of generosity and direct you in the way of giving, says the Lord.
Luke 6:38   “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/12/15:
Refuse to allow your environment and circumstances to throw you off balance.  You must maintain a correct relationship between things that require your attention regarding earthly needs and responsibilities and your attention to life in the Spirit and spiritual stability.  If you will put Me first, says the Lord, everything you need will be provided, along with the wisdom to deal with difficult situations.
Matthew 6:33   “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  5/11/15:
You have heard it said that I am the Truth.  And it is so.  The life that you live from this moment on will be bound in the truth of My word if you receive it and make it yours by choice.  And, that choice, My beloved, will propel you into the Spirit where you will see and understand the revelation of that which I desire to show you even more clearly than you are seeing it today.  I come to you so that you may not only know Me but you will know My voice, you will receive My input and My instruction and the revelation of even the days.  For, I know all things and I hold you in My power, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/11/15:
You must finish what you started before you can progress.  You have to be free from that which is holding you back before you receive further revelation of My kingdom and embrace greater life in the Spirit.  The earth is but a stage with props that help you manifest My purposes.  Your life should reflect both temporary earthly existence and eternal spiritual life, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 4:18   “while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/8/15:
Things have not worked out as you envisioned or expected, but you must get past discouragement and disappointment.  There is still divine purpose for your life, which does not depend on what you view as failure.  Your future will depend on your relationship with Me, says the Lord, and your willingness to be led by My Spirit.  Your responsibility is to yield and trust Me.
Deuteronomy 1:21  “Look, the LORD your God has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the LORD God of your fathers has spoken to you; do not fear or be discouraged.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/7/15:
Break out of the herd instinct and of moving with the flood of dissipation.  Refuse to depend on others for your spiritual well-being, and begin to seek Me in earnest, says the Lord.  If you look for Me, you will find Me, but you have to put forth the effort.  Do not put this off, for life and your walk in the Spirit depends on it.
1 John 2:27   “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/6/15:
Take advantage of every opportunity to press through the darkness of current situations until you find the light of truth and goodness.  The more time you spend in the light and in My presence, says the Lord, the more you will take on My character and the nature of light.  Escape the grasp of every evil.  Make a decision to do so now.
1 John 1:7  “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/5/15:
I could hear in the Spirit the announcement of a New Beginning.  It was epic.  I saw a separation and great distance between religion and life in the Spirit, which became a huge expanse.   Things of the earth grew dim and insignificant.  I saw earthly kingdoms like tiny toys as compared to the Kingdom of God.  Armies of the nations were as nothing in the presence of His mighty power.  And, I was comforted to know that He is my Father.  Omnipotent God!
Revelation 19:6   “And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  5/4/15:
Surely, I will show you things to come.  For, it is written that you must position yourself in faith.  Believe that I know you, that I love you, that I care enough about you to direct you and show you the way that you must walk.  And, if you will begin on that path of faith, walking with Me, surely you will begin to see more clearly than ever you have before.  It is the season of elevation.  It is the season of the rising up of the saints to see from My perspective, and not from the perspective of the world.  Just go with Me.  Let Me elevate you in this season, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/4/15:
Fear and dread will cause you to live in shallowness.  I would have you dig down deep within yourself to find the strength and courage to gain victory over your circumstances.  Do not be afraid.  Be assured that I see you and I am your very present help in your time of need.  Lean on Me, says the Lord.  Have faith.
Psalms 46:1   “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  5/1/15:
Become a holy habitation – a dwelling place – where My Spirit can live and manifest in and through you.  Without My Spirit you will have no power to accomplish what I have called and set you to do.  I have asked you to overcome the flesh, and to walk in the Spirit, but you cannot do that without making yourself a willing vessel, says the Lord.  Ask and receive.
Luke 11:10-13   “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.  If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?  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!”
