Business Leader: The Stage Is Set for Your Story

by | May 9, 2022 | Purpose & Identity

Recently my husband and I attended a leadership retreat with some new friends. We went to rest and regroup.

We made a major move in 2020, and according to a survey by University Hospitals, moving — even a good move — is in the top three of life’s stressors.

We have all had so much change, so many hurdles rise up since 2020.

I was planning to rest and reflect on ideas for my new book while on our much-needed retreat in Branson, Missouri. We settled into the lodge, on the scenic edge of the Ozark Mountains. While I was looking forward to the downtime, my husband, who is the social energizer bunny, had already made several new friends at the breakfast table. He looked up toward the coffee bar where he knew I’d be and quipped excitedly, “Hey, baby, I have set the stage for you to share your story with our new friends.”

God is doing this for you right now: setting the stage for you to share your story.

I took a deep breath and thought, “How could I not?”

With my fresh coffee in hand, I joined the table to tell the story of how God saved me years ago from a fiery explosion that almost killed me. I knew exactly what would happen next.

Every time I tell of the miracles of healing, learning to walk, and coming through the fire with a heart On Fire for Jesus, the tears flow, mouths drop open and the nods begin as listeners receive healing for their own injuries, whether they were burned by betrayal, bankruptcy, disappointment, divorce, rejection or some other painful experience.

Are you ready to share your story? I promise you that someone needs to hear it.

One of my great pleasures is spreading the wildfire and passion of God’s unending love for and personal interest in your life and your story. I’m relentlessly telling my story, and it’s your turn to tell yours.

Get started with these three tips so you can share your story on the stages God sets up for you:

  • Value your story enough to write it out.
  • List the gold nuggets of how and where God has helped you.
  • Tell your story when God opens the door.

God has set the stage for you to tell your story, my friend. Get ready! {eos}
