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.

Cafe Chat - God Is Bigger Than Me

Kim has given us a great chat topic today at the Cafe:

The catchphrase “It’s not about me” has become quite popular in our current world today. What does that phrase mean to you in your personal life? Explain.

To begin, I should probably explain that I have the logic (and sometimes behavior) of a five year old. So, with that said, I'll answer our chat topic today and explain what the catch phrase "It's not about me" means to me:

To me, it means what it says "IT'S NOT ABOUT ME."

I once read this story about a five year old little girl (since that's my level, this story caught my attention), who, while sitting in her car on the way home from church had a question for her mom. The little girl simply asked her mom, with her sweet, innocent and inquisitive little voice: "Mama, today the Pastor said that God is bigger than us." To this, her mother, smiling kindly, responded, "That's right, dear." The little girl continued, "Then the Pastor said that God lives in His children." The mother was thankful her daughter remembered these precious truths from the sermon that day and thanked God as she was grateful for just that. While her mother was silently giving thanks to God in her heart, her daughter interrupted by asking, "Mama, I have a question. If God is bigger than us and He lives in His children...well, then...wouldn't He show through?" The mother's smile of "Aw, isn't she so cute" turned to, "I'm in awe by this deep truth You revealed to me today Father, from the mouth of such a little babe."

May we live as if we wise and really smart adults, actually perceive what this little girl understood so well:

If God is bigger than us, shouldn't He show through?

praying the LORD finds this true in my life,

  5. I loved this, logically speaking, that is... but what an awesome spiritual truth! Thanks for sharing.


  6. Thanks for sharing was sweet!! I've never done Cafe Chat before, but about 3 years ago I wrote a devotional from a passage in Revelation long before I even knew what a blog was. I thought it would be great to "repost" it tonight. Thanks for posting about this!!

    Have a great Lord's day tomorrow...I can't wait for corporate worship...I wish we could start every day like Sundays!

  7. WOW! What an excellent perspective from a five year old! Thanks Sunny and blessings on you this weekend and the Lord's Day! May HE show and shine through YOU and me better this week!

  8. I think it's so much of the time that we need to let him show through. He might be very present in our lives, but we have to be willing to share and let him shine in us.

  9. Love your honesty and sweet spirit. Great post. Great perspective. Great blog. Often wished I had the sense of my own five-year-old.

  10. Great perspective. Children are so wise. He should show through and there should be no "us" to dim Him from the world. Great post!

  11. Love your honesty and sweet spirit. Great post. Great perspective. Great blog. Often wished I had the sense of my own five-year-old.
