A meditation taken from “Reflections on the Passion” by Charles Hugo Doyle for the Monday of Holy Week.
That second day I went to the little church in my town and kneeled down on my pew in front of God, and tried to get in a prayerful mindset. I thought of the things I was truly anxious and scared about, that tiny little place of true and deep fear in my heart. I thought “don’t do it Michelle, don’t let the lid off that tiny box, you’ll come unglued and won’t be able to keep it together.” Then I realized that doing that is exactly the reason I was there. I was there to open that box and let God in, I was there to come unglued and not hold it together.
What if I took St. Paul’s advice, “Let your gentleness be known.” What if I made it a point all day, every day to let my gentleness be known this Lent? As part of our Bible quotes topic here at The Littlest Way, let’s look at a verse on gentleness.
