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.

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
