Shine Ministry
"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
-Matthew 5:14-16

Welcome to the Shine Ministry website! This site is a resource for devotional poems, skits and object lessons for the public to use in worship planning and ministry.


So many people are alone in the dark
They feel lost and forsaken everyday
It is up to us to always walk with the Lord
We must Shine and show them the way

For that is what the Lord wants from us
Not just rituals or a good deed
We must minister to everyone
Especially those most in need

Sometimes there will be persecution
And it will be hard to do
Just remember you're the salt of the earth
And the Lord is always with you

Then you may even wonder why you bother
When no one seems to care
But if you light the path for just one
You've made a difference somewhere

By Dena M. Hall

When the storms of life are headed your way,
Remember, sunrises are prettier on a cloudy day.

By Dena M. Hall

KEEP SHINING because you might be the only Bible some people will ever read.
