SEEING THE LIGHT–Shelby Daniels Week
Posted On March 17, 2009
Shelby 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.
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?”
