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.

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."

                              Psalm 119:105

In this time of a life-altering pandemic, anxiety, and distress, it's difficult to see anything good coming from it. But feeling a need to enrich my study of scripture, I planned a daily time, first thing in the morning, for just that. 

First, I gathered resources and set up a designated comfortable spot for my morning time with God. For me, the key was creating a new pattern. Then, I began in the New Testament, one chapter each day, using these resources:

  1. insights and comments relating God's word to everyday life written by a present-day Christian author, 
  2. next reading that chapter in my Bible 
  3. finally reading the Moody Bible Commentary verse-by-verse explanation of that chapter. 

This in-depth study of the Bible, one chapter at a time with verse-by-verse explanations has increased my understanding and given me a closer relationship with God. I look forward to this time devoted to my faith each morning. Born of the pandemic, something very positive has been added to my life.
