Spoonful - 1/13

Genesis 29:35 NKJV
And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, "Now I will praise the Lord."  Therefore she called his name Judah. Then she stopped bearing.

To this point in time, Leah felt unloved by her husband and I'm sure jealous of her sister. God gave her three children before Judah.  She named them out of her broken heart and desperation for love. When she got to the place that she realized God loved her no matter what, she named her son “praise.” Sometimes we have to go through feeling unwanted and unloved, but in the end, God is there and always has been, and all we need to do is praise Him.
