The Power of Scars and Stories

Today let's talk about the power of scars and stories as leaders. Your story matters and builds trust with those you are leading. I'm going to be sharing part of the story from day 13 of my Amazon best-selling Bible study. You can order a copy for yourself, and another bestie leader, here!

After a storm rages through our lives, we are left with broken pieces. When we choose to accept the process of restoration those wounds start to heal. Sometimes after a wound heals a scar remains. Scars are reminders. Sometimes scars are on the outside; but, more often than not, your scars will not be visible to the naked eye. Your deepest wounds are usually under the surface.

I can’t tell you how many times I have people tell me, “I had no idea you were even struggling,” or “I didn’t realize your marriage was that broken,” when they hear my story. When I look back at pictures during the worst seasons of my life I can see the light is gone from my eyes, but on the outside things looked OK. I didn’t look sick.

The truth is, when you look at someone who has overcome the odds, you will not always see the scars on her body. You will see her scars on her mind and her heart. Scars remind us of why we are the way we are. They remind us of who we have been and the lessons we have learned on life’s journey. They remind us of the things and people we’ve lost. They help us remember our courage and God’s faithfulness. Scars are a reminder that even the deepest wounds eventually heal.
