"The Next One" - 01/22/15 - Genesis 30-31

"God listened to her and opened her womb.          
She became pregnant and had a son. She said, "God has taken away my humiliation." She named him Joseph (Add), praying,

"May God add yet another son to me." (30:22-25)

Wow!  How often am I like Rebecca. 

Are you.

We pray and pray for God to answer our prayer.  And when He does, we are looking forward to "the next one". 

Reminds me of how persons are at Christmas.  Ripping into a gift, briefly looking it over before grabbing "for the next one". 

How often do we take our many blessings and count them one by one.  How often do we stop and live in the moment.  How often do we drink in and totally savor life.  How often are we totally content with where we are in this present time and place. 

How often are we consumed by "the next one" rather than the "present one".
