Get ready to take the next step. Part of that preparation is letting go of things that have held you back or have been a source of discouragement. Only then will you be able to access the freedom available to you in moving forward. It is My will for you to walk in the Spirit and in perfect liberty, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

Refuse to allow poor choices and mistakes from the past to keep you from progressing as the best version of yourself right here; right now. I am the God of forgiveness and renewal, says the Lord. I see the beginning and the end. I AM the author of conviction and not condemnation. Conviction is the opportunity to go higher while condemnation takes you down.
Philippians 3:13-14 “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

I saw a man with a large canvas on an easel. He had been working on painting a landscape for quite some time, but there was something not quite right about the picture. It no longer expressed the intention of his soul, and he didn’t know how to fix it. There was too much of the painting that did not work for him. So, he began with a new canvas and a new idea of what he wanted to express. He began to paint with renewed freedom and fresh anointing. I could tell that this was going to be a masterpiece. And, the LORD said, “I want you to begin again with a renewed sense of freedom and anointing.”
Psalm 92:10 “But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.”

In a vision I saw a huge gust of wind that picked up debris from the ground and blew it away. Following that I could smell the freshness of rain coming. And, I heard the LORD say, “For those whose hearts are steadfast in My kingdom, there will be a clearing out of old debris and defilement followed by a time of refreshing in the Spirit. This refreshment will do away with discouragement and bring new hope and clarity.”
Psalm 72:6 “He shall come down like rain upon the grass before mowing, like showers that water the earth.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/24/17:
Establish and maintain unity with Me, says the LORD. Only then will you be able to develop spiritual acuity. Stay focused on things that have eternal value and you will be able to perceive with greater clarity all that I show you. Your future depends on your desire and willingness to be one with Me.
John 17:22 “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/23/17:
Do not be surprised when you find that you are revisiting old places of flesh responses when you thought you had dealt with the problem already. These tests will be a reminder to you that you cannot let your guard down. This time when you do the internal work it will be on a higher spiritual level than last time. You really are progressing, says the LORD.
Psalm 66:10 “For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/22/17:
Sin and darkness abound, but I do not want you to get stuck with feelings of overwhelming hopelessness. Your hope is not in world conditions, but in spiritual truth. Make a determination to rise higher in the Spirit so that you can see with greater clarity what I am doing to prepare My people for future events. Trust 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 — 11/21/17:
Stop and consider that most of what you are worried or concerned about is beyond your ability to change. You only have authority where you have legitimate responsibility. You cannot violate another person’s free-will choices by trying to exercise control. Liberate others in the same way that you desire to walk in personal freedom, says the LORD. 2 Corinthians 3:17 “Now the LORD is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/20/17:
You are a people who have learned the art of thanksgiving. Most of you are of those people who come to Me with thanksgiving. You recognize that I have been with you from the beginning and understood that I have led you and am still guiding you through your troubles to victory. So, continue on this path. Trust Me with all of your cares, says the LORD.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/20/17:
Strengthen your internal values and be true to what you deem important to your well-being. There is a myriad of voices expressing various ideals, principles, and opinions. But, you must embrace what is right and fight against evil. You know by the Spirit the difference between right and wrong, says the LORD. Let your conscience be your guide.
Hebrews 5:14 “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/17/17:
Be sensitive and follow My lead, for I am showing you ways in which you can make changes that will result in better living. These will be mostly simple and small adjustments. It is My desire that you live at the highest level of spiritual effectiveness possible. But, you must be willing to let go of things that will hinder your rise to a new level of success in Spirit, says the LORD.
Ecclesiastes 10:10 “If the ax is dull, and one does not sharpen the edge, then he must use more strength; but wisdom brings success.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/16/17:
Protection of your personal boundaries will be of paramount importance in the days ahead. Do not allow others to make a mess in your life or in your spiritual space. This means that you must guard, secure and fortify yourself so that you can establish and maintain righteousness and peace, says the LORD.
1 Peter 1:13 “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/15/17:
You are still in a time of quiet reflection. Even though it seems difficult, if not impossible, to move forward you must take this opportunity to do some very deep internal work that will ultimately pave the way to freedom. This is a rare moment in time when you can make great strides in spiritual liberty, says the LORD.
Psalms 46:10a “Be still, and know that I AM God.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/14/17:
In a vision I saw a man who had endured great heartache and grief. As I watched, he got up and walked away from the things that held him back. He rose up with increased strength and courage with a determination to move with God in Spirit and see better days. Old disappointments left behind in long forgotten places were no longer relevant. He had new hope and a new beginning. And, I heard the LORD say, “I want you to do the same.”
Philippians 3:13 “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/13/17:
My desire is that you grow spiritually and become My sons of light so that you can carry the glory of that which I bring to My people in this time. When darkness is removed you can behold My light, and if you abide there you will become light to Me. Only then will you be victorious and free, says the LORD.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/13/17:
Refuse to live your life dwelling on the pain of rejection. Rejection was a fact of life from the beginning of the world. And, rejection continues to be a fact of life for all people. However, I have not rejected you, says the LORD. My love for you will never change. When you are spurned by others, turn to Me. Let My love be your guiding light.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/10/17:
You are in spiritual pause. Take this time to reflect on the progress you have made in the past two years and rejoice to see how far you have come. You are about to enter into a phase of preparation for that which is ahead. But, you do not have to be afraid that you will miss the next move of My Spirit. It is I who will prepare you and position you to accomplish My will, says the LORD. Move with the flow of My Spirit.
Galatians 5:16 “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/9/17:
Even though worldly systems and issues seem to always be pulling at you to be discouraged, I want you to encourage yourself. Change your focus to see the work that I am doing in, around and through you, says the LORD. You are not of this world. You are citizens of My Kingdom where there is no evil, no exploitation, or inequality. Look up!
John 17:16 “They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/8/17:
Once again, I am going to turn on the flood lights so that you can see with greater clarity exactly what is going on in the realm of the Spirit. What happens in the Spirit will be expressed in your natural life. So, it is important for you to know and discern your spiritual environment. Be sensitive to My leading, says the LORD.
1 Timothy 5:25 “…the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/7/17:
I speak to those who are feeling lost and rejected; perhaps even disenfranchised. You must let go of anger and bitterness with regard to perceived or actual rejection or dismissal. Be assured that your acceptance will only come spiritually as you seek to know Me, says the LORD. I have not forsaken you nor marginalized you in any way. Know that My love for you is everlasting.
Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our LORD.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/6/17:
The reward of hidden riches will be revealed to some to distribute among God’s people for various reasons according to God’s purposes. These will be both spiritual and physical treasures. You will begin to see the manifestation of these rewards in the coming months and years. Only believe, says the LORD.
Isaiah 45:3 I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/6/17:
You are about to enjoy a sense of stability that has been lacking for quite some time. I will reveal ways for you to be safer and more solid in your life experience, and you will learn new ways to overcome and be victorious, says the LORD. Prepare yourself to move forward as you leave the past behind.
1 Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/3/17:
You are always choosing your future. Every decision creates a result. That is why you should carefully consider every thought and make adjustments before you act. This is the law of sowing and reaping, and that law cannot be broken. What you sow always produces a harvest, whether good or bad. Set yourself to do good and avoid evil, says the LORD.
1 Peter 3:11 “Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/2/17:
I AM bringing you into a time of recovery and restoration. You need to recover the things that you have lost and be restored to being solid in your spirit, soul, and body, says the LORD. This will be a deliberate process on your part as you trust Me to impart wisdom and direction in all things. Strength will come.
Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the LORD and in the power of His might.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 11/1/17:
Beloved, I want you to take care of your spirit life like you would care for an infant child. You need to feed it, protect and nurture it. You need to keep it alive and growing. When you neglect it, it will wither and die and become a thing of the past; a dim memory. Your spirit life is your future, your destiny, and your eternity, says the LORD.
John 17:3 “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”
