Daily Devotions
 

Welcome to Good Shepherd’s Daily Devotions Page!

During the weeks of Fall, our Daily Devotions are being written by members of Good Shepherd.  Each day one of your brothers or sisters in Christ will be reflecting on faith and life as we all adjust to many changes in our world.  I pray these writings will inspire, comfort and challenge you to grow in faith.  Our dedicated authors have written about their insights, joys and struggles and have been courageous enough to share them with us so that we can also ponder where God is showing up in our own lives. 

As a way to encourage the writers and each other I invite you to share a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the page each day.

Psalm 23: “He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restores my soul”

Good morning, Lord.

I slept well. Thanks for that.

But I’m tired. Tired of many things. 

For the first time, I dreamed I tested positive for COVID-19. Not a happy dream. By Your grace, my family and I are fine. Thanks again.

I grabbed some breakfast and went for a walk to clear my head (like everybody else, about every day these days). Instead of my head clearing, it was filled with anxiety, even as I was very much enjoying my walk.  I couldn’t help focusing on all that is going on in our country. I can’t even say in our world anymore. It’s our country I’m worried about.

Two miles in, miraculously, and practically involuntarily, as I’m walking in our subdivision, my arms spread wide and I said out loud, “This is the Day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it!” It was cathartic and healing. Peace returned and my day began anew. I was refreshed and joy-filled.

May you similarly experience God’s peace and share it unconditionally with one another.

::::

I’m back, Lord. I feel much better. Forgive me for losing faith. Thanks for everything.
