For years Leah kept trying to win her husband's love. God would bless her with a son and she thought for sure she would get her husband's love because of the son.
She thought "If only" and when that "If only" moment came the outcome wasn't what she thought it would be.
God blessed her big time but she was denied the one thing she wanted -- her husband's love.
I am doing a Bible study by Author Jean E. Syswerda called "Women of the Bible."
Syswerda asks this question:
"Leah had a full life with many sons and wealth. However, she is best known for what she didn't have: the love of her husband. God noticed what she did have but also what she lacked. What one thing do you want to learn from Leah and her God?"
I wrote, "She prospered and bore much fruit in a situation she did not choose and did not want. I want to do the same thing."
What about you?
