Paul didn’t merely endure hardship, instead he learned from it.

 Philippians 4:12-13
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.”
Paul had been through seasons of lack, and seasons of plenty. He had endured hardship, and also enjoyed blessings. Through it all, he learned the secret of being content. He didn’t start out with contentment–it was an acquired skill! The key thing is that he didn’t merely endure hardship, instead he learned from it
Seasons keep on changing. Some are easy and some are hard, but they keep on changing. Am I changing with the seasons, or merely waiting for the current season to end?
God is working on a transformation in my heart, in and through each season. He’s not waiting for my season to end so that He can move–rather, he is right now accomplishing something in me, in this season. Am I allowing His transformation to continue?
This week, I choose to learn from my season. I choose to embrace the growth that God is working in me, and welcome His transformation. 
God, thank you that you are accomplishing your plan in me, through each season. Teach me, and transform me to be more like you! Help me not to get so focused on the ‘next’, that I miss out on what you are doing in the ‘now’!
