Some of you all may be wondering how did I came up with my blog name “Shine Dee”. I wanted to name my blog something meaningful that defines my spiritual journey. It all started one morning, I was sitting at my desk in my room with a pen and paper – I started thinking about all the names I can possibly name my blog. With a simple prayer, I asked God to help me, and minutes later, I began writing down ideas and topics to blog about while humming “This Little Light of Mine”. Suddenly, it clicked! I can recall repeatedly saying it out loud that I’m going to let my light shine. So, I decided to name my blog Shine Dee with my first name initial spelled out (D-E-E). It was an indication to do just that…shine through God’s light.
Shine Dee is a perfect name for the theme I was going for my blog at a spiritual aspect. The day I invited Jesus into my heart was the day I was spiritually alive. Since then, I began to experience His goodness as He shed His light in my world in where I no longer lived in darkness. I almost gave up so many times but God has helped and blessed me in so many ways that I decided to share it for those who are going through stuff. Lets face it, we all need someone or something to motivate us to lean on to the Word of God when the road gets rough. There are thousands of people that are spreading the good news of Jesus Christ and the plan He has for us which is great! The more the better! My goal is to use my God given gift in any form to help others who are in need to turn on their light and add a splash of colors into their life- whether it’s with a smile for them to keep going, a quote to not give up, or a simple prayer to believe again. So, it is with hope that you all may be encouraged to shine through it all through His light (as I am also learning to do so as well ) in this beautiful journey of life.
