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: Read

Keeping with our journey through the Faith5, we are going to talk a bit about the importance of scriptures. When utilizing the Faith5, after SHARING with someone your highs and lows, you are invited to READ some scriptures together.

This almost always concerns folks because they don’t know where to start! There is SO much Bible! So, for this exercise, I would challenge you to utilize ANY and all tools at your disposal. Do you have a favorite verse? Don’t know where it is in the bible? GOOGLE it! You can also read the reading from worship! Or you can Google “Daily Bible Verse.”  

After sharing highs and lows, the scriptures can often take on a particularly profound significance. We might see connections between the story in scriptures and your own experiences of highs and lows throughout your day. It’s good to be rooted in scriptures. Whenever something happens in my day that sparks up memories of Bible passages or Bible stories, it feels like I am experiencing a sort of echo. Like the things that unfolded thousands of years ago are still reverberating throughout history. 

Deuteronomy 6
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

So, today, you are invited to SHARE and READ.     Video
