About Me

My photo

Hey there, I'm Sunny Shell, a wretch saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. I'm married to the most incredible man on earth, who loves Jesus more than he loves me, and we have two precious adult sons.

The compassionately endures me through my metabolic disease (since 2004) that enables me to be more prayerful and careful about commitments I make and helps me to make the best use of my short time here on earth.

Live Well Wednesdays - Being Transformed



Today at "Live Well" Darlene encouraged us with the topic of:
"Associative Learning".

The first Scripture that comes to mind when I think of that is:

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
~ Romans 12:2

One of the things I try to do is use Scripture to "spur" me "on toward love and good works." (Hebrews 10:24) Which includes taking good care of my body, which truly is NOT my own (1 Corinthians 6:19-20), it is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

When I remember these verses, I'm not so tempted to fall back into old habits of eating:

  1. Getting a "snack" after the kids go to bed
  2. Giving myself a "treat" after I feel I've had a hard day
  3. Using food to make me feel better when I'm upset with someone or about something
  4. Eating, not because I'm hungry, but just because it tastes good
One of the things I'm going to do is continue to research and meditate on Scripture that helps me to remember that I am truly not my own, I'm dead to this flesh and alive in Christ Jesus alone. If I do that and give myself some visuals (i.e., imagining how weird it looks to see a dead person eating) then I know that I will be so disgusted with my old habits, that I will not only run away from them, but run towards my Savior and God as I cling to His promises, His filling and how good He tastes!

Eating at the Lord's table by constantly meditating on God's Word, I know will leave me with really no desire for anything less...like comforts from food, or any other earthly temptations.

May the Lord our God bless you as you remember that you are not your own....you are dead....so don't keep feeding your dead bodies....feed your living soul!

    I love how you've worded this! So simple a concept and yet so difficult sometimes to remember and practise. Thanks for sharing your wisdom and encouragement today!

  2. I agree completely with the above comment. It does sound so simple, yet I easily get "caught up" in my daily life and allow my eyes to be diverted from where I know I should be looking.

    Thank you for these words and encouragement along this journey!
