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.

Today’s story was written by Adrienne Gordon (picture of hands holding candle)

I am passionate about believing in people, and knew pretty quickly that I wanted to give the check to an individual person. As I prayed through several weeks, the name of a friend bubbled repeatedly to the surface. I hesitated for various reasons, and went back to God with this question: "who you want me to reach?". The same name came up again and again. I took a leap of faith and surprised her with the check. I knew she faced financial hardships, and had recently received devastating news that would set her back even further. The gift brought her to her knees. With it I shared my prayer experience, including how God placed her name before me over and over. A few days later she told me, "your message was as good as the money". The gifts of prayer and money lifted her heart above the hardship. She is writing a new chapter in life and starting a small business doing what she loves. The check will help, not just for the monetary value, but because it came at a precious time. It served as a sign that God can and will do good things.

Matthew 5:14

“You are the light of the world.”

Reflection: Who are you praying for?  Is God answering your prayer with an invitation to do something for that person(s)?
