Closer to the brokenhearted

Chapters Read: Genesis 28:1 – 30:43

When the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, he enabled her to conceive, but Rachel remained childless. Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She names him Reuben, for she said, “It is because the Lord has seen my misery.” – Genesis 29:31-32

It is difficult to spend every waking day with someone who does not love you. Someone who would choose someone else over you, everytime. While Jacob was focused on Rachel, God showed Leah that she wasn’t alone, and that He cares for her.

A lot of hearts have been broken by unrequited love. In times of pain and loneliness, may we remember that God’s love is bigger that any other love in this world. His is a LOVE that will never fail, will never give up, and will never ever run out.
