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.

Unanswered Prayers


"When prayer seems to be unanswered, beware of trying to fix the blame on someone else. That is always a snare of Satan. You will find there is a reason which is a deep instruction to you, not to anyone else."
~ Oswald Chambers


When we don't get everything we want here on earth; whether it be physical healing or physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual comforts, we must always remember that no man, nor anything in all creation can thwart God's perfect plans.

Therefore, when we find ourselves in situations where God seemingly has not answered, or has provided us with an answer we did not desire, we must maintain in what we DO know with confidence, rather than give into the fears of speculation and appointing blame on one another. Instead, we, as children of the Most High God know for CERTAIN that God is good and His timing is impeccably perfect and we can never fully understand all of His awesome and lofty ways. With this knowledge, we can move out of our fears of temporary discomforts and move forward into what we were made for: to worship and give honor, praise and glory to the King of kings and the Lord of lords!

When we are saddened by God's answers, we mustn't give into the blame game; instead, as God's children, holy and dearly loved, we must say to our souls, "What lesson is here for me to learn Lord? I am your child, and I am listening."

No matter what may come our way, may we always rejoice that God is God and we are not! ♥

Join me today in this praise of our awesome Heavenly Father and God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by the power of His Holy Spirit.

  4. Sunny that was awesome, as always! Sometimes the biggest blessings come in the form of unanswered prayers because God's plans are always much bigger than our own!

  5. So true, my sister. I've come to learn that there is no such thing as an unanswered prayer...there's "yes" "no" "maybe so" "wait" and "be still and know me." And many more. When I accept His answers and continue walking with Him front and center, I'm blessed with peace and sweet fruit from Him.

    This is an unsecret, I think. God's told us, w haven't fully unwrapped it yet. :D

    Praying for you, my friend.

  6. Just yesterday I had a bad attitude until reading this quote from Bob Schultz in our family devotion: ”God brings events into your life, removes things and people, and provides adventures that you might be overwhelmed with love and appreciation for Him. By His design you’ll always be a prisoner; you have the freedom to choose what type you want to be. Either you’re voluntarily captivated by His beauty and excellence, or you’re taken prisoner, against your will, by the circumstances and agents God sends for your capture."

    Between that and then the Wife study mention of attitude and this, *I think* I just might be getting it! ~smile~ (((((HUGS))))) sandi

  7. Great reminder for me. It isn't usually unanswered prayer, but possibly an answer I don't want.

    Open my eyes that I may see...
