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?”

  1. Hello Sir!
    I think this is a cool blog so I finally decided to make a post.I thought about starting my own board but I‘m glad I found this one instead. Great Info!

  2. 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!!

  3. 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.

  4. 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 😉

  5. 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…
