Shine His Light
Shine His Light
by Marie McGaha
GENRE: Christian devotional
Life is the journey we take on our way to Heaven. It's not easy, it's not pretty, and sometimes, it's downright difficult. However, we have an Advocate unlike any other, Jesus Christ. In Shine His Light, the author uses scriptures and her own life lessons to help others get through the bumpy spots.
When I was a kid, the series “Star Trek” was the greatest sci-fi show on TV, with the most up-to-date special effects. People disappeared in the transporter, we saw the Enterprise fly through the stars at warp speed, and of course, we saw really strange people and creatures from other planets. Sometimes, the planets were inhospitable and wouldn’t support life as we know it, so the crew moved on.
Of course, it didn’t take long for technology to leap forward and when I watch the old “Star Trek” episodes now, the special effects seem so antiquated, they’re something we laugh about. We can take what is already there and turn it into something better, something brand new and more efficient but we can’t take nothing and turn it into something. Only God can do that.
When God’s Spirit hovered over the face of the waters, He did not think it was inhospitable or that nothing could ever come from it. God looked at the waters and thought, I can make dry land. I can make light. I can take some of that dirt and form a human being. And that is exactly what He did. But He did not stop there, He formed a human being from a pile of dirt and then, He did something remarkable, He breathed His own Spirit into that pile of dirt and gave it life. That pile of dirt became the first man—a living, breathing, moving, thinking person. And God said it was “very good.” Up until then, everything created was called “good,” but man and woman were “very good.”

Q&A With the Author
What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
The research and time spent with the Lord in both reading the Bible and praying about what I should write.
Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about?
I am currently finishing up Shine His Light 4, which will be released Spring 2023, and I have a special surprise coming for Summer 2023!
Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future?
At the moment, I'm just enjoying life as it is. I'm getting married Feb 4 and have been planning that. I'm so blessed to have found love again. When my husband of 23 years passed away, I couldn't imagine finding a man who could fill that void. I wanted to get married again, but at my age, and being able to find a man that could live up to the biblical standard of husbands, I wasn't sure it would happen, but when God has a plan, there is nothing that can stop it. He is truly a blessing and the one whose soul matches my own.
How long have you been writing?
I think I was born with a pen in my hand! I've been writing since I could make letters. I wrote plays and stories all through grade school, and wrote my first novel in the 8th grade. It was a story about a school teacher from Boston who comes to the wild, Wild West to teach school and falls for the town marshal. I don't remember details but I wish I still had a copy of it. I'd love to know how my 13-year-old mind processed romance!
Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?
I'd like to thank everyone who stops by and reads the interview and I hope you enjoy the book!
