[CF Devotionals] 2019-03-18 - Brought to You by the Letter L

I was in elementary school when we had to do a yucky icebreaker. We had to describe ourselves by using a word that started with the same first letter as our first name. I had to come up with an adjective that began with an L. I was the second student to give my answer, so I had to think fast. I blurted out the word 'lonely.' Lonely Lisa.

My answer wasn't entirely correct. I really wasn't that lonely, I mean sometimes, sure. Loneliness comes with the territory, when one is an only child. Now that I'm older, I would say Left-handed Lisa describes me more accurately. If the Lord took part in the game, it would be easy come up with positive L-words to describe Him, such as loving, loyal, leader, and listener. Scripture supports these facts.

  • Loving "How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings." Psalm 36:7 NIV, (see also Psalm 69:16, Isaiah 54:8)

  • Loyal "Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never ail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." Lamentations 3:22-24 NIV (see also 2 Timothy 2:13)

  • Leader "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps." Proverbs 16:9 NIV (see Psalm 37:5 and 85:8)

  • Listener "The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;" Psalm 34:15 NIV (see also John 10:27-28)

Oh, how we can depend on the Lord's loving kindness. We never have to limit God's good qualities!

How would you respond to this type of icebreaker?
