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.

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.
