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!

Faith5: Share

Over the holidays I refreshed myself with a spiritual practice that has truly blessed my family. I realized in the midst of these ever-changing schedules, my family and I had not been observing our practice of “doing our Faith5.” 

Faith5 is a way that many households at GSLC connect with one another and with God every day. This week, I want to cover all the steps of the Faith5 in hopes that you might practice it as well. 

Each devotion this week will have the practice, some reflection on its importance, and a video from the creator of Faith5, Dr. Rich Melheim.

Today, I am going to challenge you to practice just ONE piece of the Faith5: Share

In our house that means a sharing of our highs and lows. It allows us to listen and connect with one another on the comings and goings of our day. It’s an opportunity to comfort each other and celebrate with each other.  In the midst of challenging times, it can feel strange to share with someone that you experienced something GOOD. But it’s part of our tradition as people of God. Not just to comfort and mourn with those who mourn, but to celebrate with those who are celebrating! 

Philippians 4:8 New International Version
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Today may be challenging. We will have no shortage of lows some days… but be on the lookout for whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, or admirable.     Video
