Daily Devotions
 

Welcome to Good Shepherd’s Daily Devotions Page!

During the weeks of Fall, our Daily Devotions are being written by members of Good Shepherd.  Each day one of your brothers or sisters in Christ will be reflecting on faith and life as we all adjust to many changes in our world.  I pray these writings will inspire, comfort and challenge you to grow in faith.  Our dedicated authors have written about their insights, joys and struggles and have been courageous enough to share them with us so that we can also ponder where God is showing up in our own lives. 

As a way to encourage the writers and each other I invite you to share a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the page each day.

Today’s story was written by Adrienne Gordon (picture of hands holding candle)

I am passionate about believing in people, and knew pretty quickly that I wanted to give the check to an individual person. As I prayed through several weeks, the name of a friend bubbled repeatedly to the surface. I hesitated for various reasons, and went back to God with this question: "who you want me to reach?". The same name came up again and again. I took a leap of faith and surprised her with the check. I knew she faced financial hardships, and had recently received devastating news that would set her back even further. The gift brought her to her knees. With it I shared my prayer experience, including how God placed her name before me over and over. A few days later she told me, "your message was as good as the money". The gifts of prayer and money lifted her heart above the hardship. She is writing a new chapter in life and starting a small business doing what she loves. The check will help, not just for the monetary value, but because it came at a precious time. It served as a sign that God can and will do good things.

Matthew 5:14

“You are the light of the world.”

Reflection: Who are you praying for?  Is God answering your prayer with an invitation to do something for that person(s)?
