Meekness of Mind
Blessed are those who are slow to anger, practice self control, who live in quiet submission and service to The Lord...and surrender the battle to God.
Blessed are those who show restraint in the face of adversity are not tossed about the waves of the storm.
For, those who remain steadfast and true are blessed with peace in their souls and an abundant, restful life.
Blessed are the meek, patient and long suffering, for they are joint heirs with Christ, citizens of Heaven and a new Earth.
