Painful Stretching

"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11 (NIV)

For Your Reflection… Which is hardest for you when you are in a season of being stretched: not giving up, sharing your pain with friends, or talking to God about what's going on in your heart?  Whichever one you chose, this is probably the one you should work on today.
