SEEING THE LIGHT–Shelby Daniels Week

heartsShelby Daniels here again. This blogging thing is way cool. I’m thinkin’ I might need to start my own.

Think anyone would want to hear about my crazy adventures saving God’s chosen people from demons out to kill them?

I mean, I get these wicked visions, right? Then Gabe, he’s my sweetheart, and I have to figure them out and save whoever’s identified in the vision.

Sure, they give me a monster headache sometimes, but it’s worth it, I guess.

I remember my first one. It scared me to death. Course, it didn’t help that I totally and completely hated God and wanted nothing to do with his so-called superpowers.

Seriously.

But finally I “saw the light.” Maybe that’s why Lynn calls my first book Light of Truth. I should ask her sometime. I wonder if got that title from the fact that God’s light IS truth. It IS love.

And if He can love a tattooed, foul-mouthed, druggie like me…He can love anyone, right?

It just took God clobbering me over the head with a two-by-four. Ok, not a literal two-by-four, but you know what I mean, right?

I mean, first it was superpowers – ok, yeah, that’s a little strange, not everyone gets that –Then there was this super-hot guy, Gabe. Then, my mentor, Ms. Simon (we just call her Simon, though.)

So, through the super powers thing, Gabe, and Simon, I saw the Light of Truth, that’s for sure. They showed me God’s love by not rejecting me for being such a jerk right off the bat.

You’ll have to read the book someday to find out just how crummy I was. But the fact that they still cared for me while I was such a jerk…heck, if that doesn’t show God’s love, I don’t know what does.

So, how’d you “see the light?”

    Not so many years ago I preferred the bar and going out with friends to spending time with my kids. At the time that I met my husband, I was in the bars almost every night, drinking way too much and “loving” anything that looked cross-eyed at me. For me it was more of a journey to God than an “aha” moment. About 6 years ago I was on the brink of losing my second marriage – until I called on Jesus. That’s where I end and God began…

    Wow, Shelby. Good post. and Janelle great testimony. I don’t think I can do a short one, but my story started at church camp, took a side trip on an evil train, then a prophet on a corner, potential of marriage and discovering God in was in my back yard all the time. Yup, that sums it up LOL 😉

    Janelle, what an awesome story. I’m so glad you shared that. I was soooo lost to drugs and alcohol for over three years. But looks like God clobbered you, too, huh? I like how you put it, “That’s where I end and God began…” NICE!! Love it.

    Gzusfreek, that’s a great summary. EVIL TRAIN. Yeah, that’s a great way to put it. Rock on! Thanks for sharin’ guys.

    Hey, Shelby. Yep, that’s how I titled your book.
    1 John 1:5: “…God is light; in Him there is no darkness.”

    Boy, how did I see the light? I was into guys and partying in high school, then, while at a tennis camp for Fellowship of Christian Athletes, God clobbered me over the head.

    I gave my life to Christ and it’s been a ride ever since. Highs and lows, but He’s been with me every step of the way.

    Great post, today, Shelby!!
