All Humility

Lately God is trying to work more gentleness and humility into me. It is a daunting task, for sure, because I am, for one, an American!

While getting ready to write this morning, I tried to find the Bible verse that God most recently used to impress on me my need for humility. As is often His way, I couldn’t find that verse, but He showed me another verse that dove even deeper.

I [Paul]who am a prisoner in our Lord request of you, therefore, that you walk just as it is suitable to the calling in which you are called, with all humility [forsaking self-righteousness], and gentleness [maintaining self-control], with patience, bearing with one another in [unselfish] love.

Ephesians 4:1-2

I’m to be not only humble, but also gentle and patient.

In this world where it feels like everything is out of control and the only way to get things going in the right direction is to yell and shove and shame, God asks me to be humble, gentle and patient.

It makes no sense to the human mind, but if God said it, I shouldn’t question it.

Pray for me! This isn’t going to be easy. I’ll pray for you if you’d like, too!

I found out that I have Autism upon having a son with the same "disorder." Ironically, I was voted, "Most Likely to Succeed," by my high school classmates. But had I been born now, instead of 40+ years ago, I would have been considered a different sort of special. This site was started to encourage other Autistics and the people who love them .
