Daily Devotion

As we prepare to take a break from our Good Shepherd Daily Devotions until Advent, I hope you will continue your habit of sitting with God each day through inspirational reading. Today I want to provide you with some online options for continuing to grow in faith each day.  

 

The first is a resource we shared yesterday from the United Church Of Christ.   Their devotion is entitled, “God Is Still Speaking.”   This is a powerful reminder that God is involved in our lives and longing to direct us in the way to go.   Our main task is to learn to listen for what God is saying.   It is true that God speaks through such things as daily devotions!  

 

You can find the “God Is Still Speaking” Daily Devotion here:

Another resource comes from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota called “God Pause”.  The name indicates what it is, an opportunity to pause our lives each day to focus on God’s presence.   I shared an example of their devotion on Friday last week.    These devotions are written by Alumni of the Seminary who are serving throughout the US and around the world! They are grounded in scripture verses and/or hymn lyrics.  Each daily pause gives you something to chew on throughout the day, and reminds you of God’s constant presence with you.  

 You can find the link to the “God Pause” devotion here:

If you want your devotion to be focused on reading Scripture, then I recommend the Daily Texts, sent out by the Moravian Church.  Each day will invite you into several scriptures passages that are linked for your easy reference on your device.  You can check is out here:

If you would prefer an actual book of daily devotions that you can hold in your hand, you can check out these Lutheran publications.   Good Shepherd does offer a limited supply of these in our lobby each quarter which are available on a first come, first served basis.  You can order your own subscription here:

No matter what resource you use, please continue to find time to sit with God each day.  If you need ideas on how to best do this, talking with one of the Pastors.   See you in Advent!
