But I Don't Feel Gentle
I can perform random acts of gentleness. But, gentleness doesn’t ooze from the core of who I am. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries. Can you relate to this?
This is especially true if I get stressed OR if I get sleepy. Something from the Bible that’s been really tugging at my heart lately is this: “Let your gentleness be evident to all.”
Yes, I want to be a gentle woman—even when things bump into my happy and make me feel anything but gentle.
I am capable of being gentle; I just have to intentionally practice it. And I can do this by practicing another word from the same place in the Bible: Rejoice. The more my heart’s parked in a place of thanksgiving and rejoicing the less room I have for grumpiness.
And the more I rejoice, the more I keep things in perspective, and the more gentle I become.
