Matthew 5:5
For all these things My hand has made, and so all these things have come into being [by and for Me], says the Lord. But this is the man to whom I will look and have regard: he who is humble and of a broken or wounded spirit, and who trembles at My word and reveres My commands.

Colossians 3:12

1 Timothy 5:11
Seek GOD, all you quietly disciplined people who live by GOD's justice. Seek GOD's right ways. Seek a quiet and disciplined life. Perhaps you'll be hidden on the Day of GOD's anger.
Zephaniah 2:3
Walk with me and work with me--watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Matthew 11:29
For although I am free in every way from anyone's control, I have made myself a bond servant to everyone, so that I might gain the more [for Christ].
1 Corinthians 9:19

Meekness is not weakness! To be gentle doesn't make you less manly or not a leader. Meekness is a fruit of the Spirit. Meekness, when shown forth in our lives, causes us to not hit one another over the head with TRUTH. When a meek spirit has been shaped and molded by the hand of God, he becomes a more mature Christian. Sit down with your local pastor (not an internet pastor) and your your friends or family and ask them how that you could work on showing more meekness in your life. Remember that this could be the very thing that is needed to propel you into what God wants for you. Satan can only hinder us, the flesh can stop us, but God isn't telling you "Whoa!" God is tell you to "GO!"
"Launch out into the deep!"
