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.

Create in me a clean heart, O God. 
And renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from your presence
And take not your Holy Spirit from me.
                                                                                          Restore unto me the Joy of your Salvation
                                                                                          And uphold me with your free Spirit.

                                                                                          Psalm 51:  10-12

 

Sometimes we know we need God’s help, but we don’t know exactly what to ask for or how to put into words what we need.  It helps to have words provided to us by scripture that speak for us when our own words won’t come.  In my case, when caught up with negative emotions I just could not shake, I remembered the verses above we sang every Sunday in church for the Offertory when I was growing up.  I prayed each line slowly and deliberately in a request that my heart would be rid of anger that I didn’t want to take out on others.  This prayer acted like a “reset button” for my heart and I felt the negativity leave and be replaced with calmness and self-control I was unable to achieve on my own.  Thank God for providing us with words we can use to let God know what we feel and need.
