SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Be on alert for the tendency to make assumptions about people or situations that make you uncomfortable. It’s okay to feel awkward, but you must resist the temptation to carry that feeling into presumption. Your best tactic is to hide and watch it work itself out. Not everything is about you, so don’t take things too personally or take yourself too seriously, says the Lord. Keep looking for spiritual reality in everything.
Psalms 5:3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.
I remember the Lord giving me a dream about being pregnant out of wedlock. It was one of the most unusual dreams I have every had. It was one of the few dreams I have ever had that continued. I woke up three times and each time went back to the dream.
I know when things come in threes, it means it’s going to come quickly. When I woke up someone called me and told me that they were sending me one thousand dollars. The Lord told me, it was a sign of being pregnant with wealth and the reason I was pregnant “out of wedlock” is because my wealth would come before I married.
I kind of understand the dream more than ever. Sometimes when a person has a lot, they cannot trust that they are being loved for themselves and sadly a lot of times that is the truth. After all, what poor woman would not jump at the chance to marry a rich man? Even the ones that say it’s not about money don’t really mean it. So for me, if God sends a man of wealth, I will already have my own.
1 Timothy 6:10
New International Version (NIV)
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
