Faith Building Fridays: Shine!

Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works
and glorify your Father in heaven.
-Matthew 5:16, NKJV

As writers, we get to choose the words we write. We choose our topics. We choose the perspective and point of view. We choose the nuggets for take-away value. We choose the setting and the characters and the plot. Let’s make it our goal to choose words that glorify our Father in heaven and not words that conform to the standards of this world. Let’s shine in this world of darkness whether we’re writing fiction, nonfiction, for children, or adults! May the manuscripts we write be like a lighthouse guiding lost and storm-weary travelers into the safety and comfort of the Father’s arms.

Dear God, please anoint me anew with Your Holy Spirit. Guide me to only write words that bring You glory. Teach me how to write manuscripts that shine in the darkness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


Scribes: Devotions for Christian Writers is available at Amazon.


  1. Always think of that scripture when I see the lighthouses near us. We love lighthouses. The closest is Cape Lookout on an island. Cape Hatteras is on the land of a very long island called the Outer Banks.
