But I Don't Feel Gentle

I can perform acts of gentleness, but gentleness doesn’t ooze from the core of who I am. 
Can you relate to this? This is especially true if I get stressed or sleepy. Something from the Bible that’s been really tugging at my heart lately is this: “Let your gentleness be evident to all.”
Yes, I want to be a gentle woman even when things bump into my happy and make me feel anything but gentle.
I am capable of being gentle; I just have to intentionally practice it. I can do this by practicing another word from the same place in the Bible. Rejoice! The more my heart is parked in a place of thanksgiving and rejoicing, the less room I have for grumpiness. 
The more I rejoice, the more I keep things in perspective, the more gentle I become.
