SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In a dream I was preaching with sincerity and passion, but when I looked out at the congregation they had all moved to the back rows of the sanctuary. Some were sleeping and actually snoring and others were yawning and still others were slumped down in the pew. There was no spiritual life at all. As I was waking up I asked the Lord what this meant, and He said, "My people have grown fat and dull after being spoon-fed the truth of My word. And, now in the pandemic, they have a rare and valuable opportunity to seek Me in earnest. Yet, precious few have actually sought My face and entered My presence." Matthew 13:15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them.
