SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Beloved, I have called you to be strong in the face of adversity and challenges. This is no time to let down or give up. I am with you to strengthen you when you feel weak, and encourage you when you are in despair. Rise up in the realm of the Spirit and receive all that I have made available to you. I have called you by name and I will protect you in times of trouble. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 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-always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
