Share Your Stretch
Stretch marks! Maybe it’s something you don’t want in the natural, but I believe it is something you most definitely should not hide in the spiritual. As a leader in any area of life, in your home, family, work place we will all have times of incredible stretching. The stretch of feeling ill equipped for the task ahead. The stretch of learning new skills for a new environment. The stretch of following your dream and absorbing its expenses. Stretch marks are part of the beauty of a life that is willing to embrace the pull to obtain the prize. Too often we mask these marks so people think we arrived in style. We cover the tearing and marking, opting to rather present our togetherness and progress. Yet every stretch mark has a story and extends to us a lesson. In the natural my stretch marks were created by a life growing within me, those marks came by incubating the most precious gift of our children. Stop trying to cover up the marks spiritually you gained from bringing things to life. If we only talk about our spiritual additions we will fail to coach correctly those who are about to incubate increase. When we talk more about stretch we can share so much more strength. I don’t want to get rid of my marks, I want then to become part of my message, not to glorify the pain but to make the pain pay it forward. So leaders in every area today don’t just charge ahead rather share your stretch. Don’t perform or perfect instead impart and connect. Share you stretch, your stretch marks matter!
