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: Bless

This is my last devotion of the week and It is my sincerest hope that you have been blessed by this the practice of the Faith5. It has been such a gift to my household that I feel confident it can multiply its blessings in your home.  

Blessings are perhaps my favorite part of worship and prayer. The idea that we are sending God’s care and love and encouragement into the world, knowing that God goes with it, is amazing to me.  

Genesis 12:1–3  The Call of Abram
Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and pin you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

After talking with someone and connecting with them in prayer, it is a beautiful practice to end that holy time with a blessing. Just like we conclude worship. 

I will send you this day with a blessing that we use in our house. We sing a little song of blessing. We make the sign of the cross on one another’s head while we sing these words. 

May the lord bless you and keep you
May the lord cause his face to shine, shine upon you
See him smile at just the thought of you
May he rule in every part of you
And peace be with you.
