Rejoicie always
let your gentleness show

and don’t worry
as you pray

keep being thankful
and My peace will guard

your mind and heart
each day.


You are with me and guard my heart and mind.


“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice.”

“Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.”

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God;”

“and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:4,5,6,7 NKJV

Being Made Great

“You have also given me the shield of your salvation.
And Your gentleness has made me great.”  2 Samuel 22:36

David fought many battles. Yet it wasn’t his physical strength or leadership skills that saved him and made him great.

Oh Lord, thank You for saving me into greatness and being my Fiercely Gentle  Hero King.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

He Saves Me Gently

I am held
by Your salvation

loved greatly
by the One made small

I am saved
from the destroyer

gently humbled
by my All in All.

How Will He Come To Us?

“What do you want? Shall I come to you with a rod, or in love with a spirit of gentleness?” 1 Corinthians 2:21

I want love and gentleness, but may need the rod.

Lord, thank You for always knowing what I need. May I not get to the point where a rod is needed, but stay where the Truth spoken in love brings me to my knees. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Gentleness and a Rod

My stomach tightens
at how wrong I’ve been

heart sickness follows
and I know it’s of Him

as His Spirit wields both
gentleness and a rod

for correction comes with
the powerful love of God.
