Devotionals
 

Devotionals are short essays written by GSLC members and staff that explore the ways the Holy Spirit works within our every day lives.  There are several ways we invite you to use these devotionals:

  • Make them a part of a prayer practice - read a devotion and consider the ways that Christ has worked similarly in your life or works in unexpected ways.
  • Make them a part of a journaling practice - read a devotion and journal about what the Holy Spirit is stirring in you as you reflect on the essay.
  • Use them as a reminder that God works in all things, the bad and the good.

With over 400 available devotions, you can use these daily, weekly, or monthly.  It's up to you!  We just hope that by reading these inspiring stories provided by Good Shepherd's flock you are able to better see where Jesus is present in all things!  Thank you to all of our members that have provided devotionals throughout the past couple of years!

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)?
