Do you have a vision for your life? Do you have a clear picture of where your life could go if you maximized your potential? If you do, then you may realize that the vision that often inspires you can also be disheartening. The longer it takes to reach the life you envision, the harder it is to cope with where you currently are.
Sometimes, we get so anxious to reach our vision that we forget to “smell the roses” along the way. In the verses cited above, Paul gives us a different perspective. With God’s help, he learned to be content – totally satisfied – in whatever phase of life he was in. In other words, he completely enjoyed each season of his life.
So, what about you? Do you enjoy where you currently are? If not, then consider the benefits of where you are. I truly believe that our steps are ordered by God, and He has a purpose for every phase of our lives. Our challenge is to enjoy each phase, believing they will lead to our destiny.
