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.

"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.
