Dreaming of Rachel, Waking Up with Leah-1

Genesis 29:25 “And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it [was] Leah: and he said to Laban, What [is] this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?”
I want to specially welcome you once again to the second half of this great and exciting year. How are you doing? How far have you gone with your dreams, new year resolution and aspirations? How are your plans coming through?
Friend, I have decided to do this piece to encourage you and strengthen you in the area of your dreams and expectations for this year.
What do you do when your plans don’t work out? How do you feel when you meet with failure? Are you working hard at something that isn’t working? Have your expectations turned to a mirage?
That is what I call dreaming of Rachel and waking up with Leah! You were so sure you’re holding Rachel but you can’t understand how she turned out to be Leah.
You were so sure, you won the contract bid and expected your award letter but it never came! You expected huge sales from your product but you can’t explain how you made a loss!
That Uncle or Aunty of yours promised setting you up in business but they’re yet to give you the promised capital. You read so well for that exam, did several all nights, prayed and answered the questions well but yet you failed.
Those are Rachel and Leah situations. In plain language, it is called disappointment!
I love the story of Jacob, there is so much to learn from him and how he handled his disappointments. Let’s pick one or two lessons from his story.
Disappointments are everyday realities, although not palatable, it does come up once in a while and our ability to handle them God’s way always gives victory.
In life we all want control, predictability, results, stability…To be continued…
Love you BiG
