Daily Devotions

We are thrilled to once again be sharing a daily devotion with you for the season of Advent. These inspiring devotions have been written by YOU the members of Good Shepherd.  A sincere “thank you” to everyone who opened their hearts to share a small piece of their faith journey with us.   As we journey toward Bethlehem in this season, take time each day to walk with God and experience the stirrings of the deep love that took on flesh to walk with us.  

During the four week Advent season, each Wednesday our devotion will be a video reflection by Dr. Kevin Seal, Director of Worship and Music at Good Shepherd, as he shares a teaching about the Words and Music of Advent.

Each new day’s devotion will go live directly on our webpage, goodshepherd.com at 6am, (look under the worship tab at the top right of the front page) or you can follow the link that will be sent out later each morning in an email from Good Shepherd.

Daily Devotion

All day long a little burro labors, sometimes
with heavy loads on her back and sometimes just with worries
about things that bother only

And worries, as we know, can be more exhausting
than physical labor.

Once in a while a kind monk comes
to her stable and brings
a pear, but more
than that,

he looks into the burro’s eyes and touches her ears

and for a few seconds the burro is free
and even seems to laugh,

because love does

Love frees.

--Meister Eckhart (1260-1328)

What are the worries that are exhausting you? Who is like that kind monk to you while you’re social distancing? What feels like freedom right now?

Thanks for the uplifting message...as we burrow (get it) ourselves in our homes..let's not forget to reach out to others and comfort them with caring thoughts. Doing yard work today as each person passed by walking I would greet them and share a positve comment...everyone stay safe!

The worries of daily living and trying to navigate teaching on line weigh heavy on my mind. But this inspiring story of the burro reminds me that i have a strong circle of friends who have helped ease that burden with a kind word and support.

We will get through this with His strength to guide us.
