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.

Based on John 20:19-31 (yesterday’s Gospel Reading)



Resurrected Christ

You show the path of life.

In your presence there is fullness of joy;

In your right hand are pleasures forever more

Breathe Peace

entering locked doors of


Breathe Peace

Healing painful wounds of

virus infected lungs-systemic racism-loss-grief

Breathe Peace

Displacing fear of

illness-financial instability-uncertainty-“the other” people

Breathe Peace

filling empty arms of those who are

yearning for touch-isolated-lonely-forgotten

Breathe Peace

into my soul

move me with your spirit

show me signs of your presence so that through my belief

my life may

Breathe Peace

entering locked doors

healing painful wounds

displacing fear

filling open arms

receiving your Holy Spirit my heart is glad,

my soul rejoices and my body rests secure.  Amen
