Nothing is so strong as gentleness, and nothing is so gentle as true strength.
Gentleness is Strength
Strong men can always afford to be gentle. Only the weak are intent on giving as good as they get.
There is great strength in gentleness. Unfortunately too many people equate gentle with weak. Not true.
Strong Woman vs. a Woman of Strength
A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape
but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape
A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear.
A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her
but a woman of strength gives the best of her to everyone
A strong woman walks sure footedly
but a woman of strength knows God will catch her if she falls.
A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face
but a woman of strength wears grace.
A strong woman has faith she is strong enough for the journey
but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she
will become strong.
Whenever we remain gentle in the face of chaos, loss, or dismay. Whenever we push against fear or rage, these are acts of tremendous strength.
Tears shed for self are tears of weakness, but tears shed for others are a sign of strength.
