To be unwanted, unloved, or undesired is the greatest loss. Through circumstances not entirely of her own making, Leah was married to a man who didn’t choose or love her. She thought she could win Jacob’s love through children. By her fourth son, Leah had chosen to move on. Instead of blaming God or others for being a victim, Leah’s sorrow and rejection led her to say, “This time I will praise the Lord” (Genesis 29:35). Are you ignored, unwanted, or undesired by the men in your life? Your hurt hasn’t gone unnoticed. For “the Lord saw that Leah was unloved….” (v. 31; cf. v. 33). God looks inside a woman’s broken heart and sees and feels her pain. You may be unloved, but not unseen; unloved, but not unheard; unloved, but beloved by Him who is “Altogether Lovely” (Song of Songs 5:16)—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
