“You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God…” I Peter 3:4 NLT

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

I am working to be,

for this pleases God,

and I want Him,

to be pleased with me.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

is one who obeys,

one devoted to God,

they are not divided,

constant their heart stays.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

is one born again,

one renewed by God,

no longer His enemy,

but now His friend.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

practices daily to be,

one living for God

in a world dark and lost,

a shining light to see.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

returns no harm for wrong,

one fearing God,

who turns sorrow and weeping,

into prayers and praise of song.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

is one who is at peace,

one hopes in God,

He is faithful,

from fears released.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

is one who knows,

one seeking God,

He will find them,

Himself He shows.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

is one who is humble,

one submitted to God,

knows His will,

and so does not stumble.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

is one who trusts,

one dependant on God,

their needs fulfilled,

after nothing worldly lusts.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

is not proud,

not against God,

not boastful, unloving, stubborn,

does not argue, is not loud.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

can stand against wrong,

one strengthened by God,

taught by Christ’s example,

quiet trust makes one strong.

 

A gentle and quiet spirit,

changes I continue to see,

pleasing to God,

is what I want,

for His love saved me.
