Living the Gentle Life

How do you cope when burned out? Withdraw? Control? Anger? Anxiety?
At times of burnout I become “Sargent Melanie” and it is not very pleasant. Regardless of how we cope, one thing we have the same as children of God is: gentleness is truly at the root of who we are. Whether it is buried under a deep forest of problems, or thorny briar situations—We have this character, the gentleness of our God, ingrained in each one of us. He wants us to follow after His example and learn how to live the gentle life.
