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.

Praise...Darwin? A Message from Ray Comfort

Praise...Darwin? A Message from Ray Comfort
Praise... Darwin? In 1963, it took only one atheist to take Bible-reading and prayer out of our schools. Now they want to stop Gideons from giving Bibles to school kids, remove reference to God on our money and in the Pledge of Allegiance, change B.C./A.D., stop public prayer, ban nativity scenes, etc. The "Freedom From Religion Foundation," is placing billboards around the country trying to offend Christians so that the national media will film their billboard, promote their website, and thus help gain support to fulfill their godless agenda. They want to take from Americans the liberty that we have to freely worship God. Darwin Day, February 12th, 2009 More than 350 locations around the world are celebrating Darwin Day -- the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin. Atheists will no doubt use it to further their cause. Many universities and even the National Geographic and Discovery Channels are planning to celebrate. This is a big deal. We want to pull the plug on

Me? Persecute Christ?!

"And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.' And I said, 'Who are You, Lord?' and the Lord said, 'I am Jesus whom you are persecuting.' " ~ Acts 26:14 - 15 The first thing that comes to most of our minds when we think about the phrase "persecuting Jesus", we think about those abroad who are brutally beating and/or killing Christians. It seems our minds often carry us to the extreme when we consider most things. At least, that's the way my mind works. But the Lord our God's mind doesn't work that way. He cares intimately about every minute detail, i.e., God has numbered every hair on our heads ( Matthew 10:30 ), God stores every tear in a bottle ( Psalm 56:8 ), the Lord considers any who angrily slanders or hates another to be a murderer ( Matthew 5:21-22 & 1 John 3:15 ), and our holy Go

A Bondservant of Jesus Christ

servant n. ~ a person employed by another, esp. to perform domestic duties. bondservant n. ~ a person bound to service without wages . Every time I read in Scripture "servant of Christ Jesus" or something of the like, I used to only have the concept that it meant I was "in His service". But without really considering it, I had been "in His service" most often than not, in order to receive a reward; whether here on earth (like accolades and praise) or in Heaven - our eternal treasures. But as time passed, I began to cringe at the thought of doing anything in the name of Jesus, for any kind of "reward", even heavenly rewards. To encourage me through difficult trials, people have often said, "Press on Sunny, press on! You know this is for your eternal reward! You'll have treasure in Heaven, far better than any of this and a crown of glory!" Now, I know that they all meant well, but still, inside - I would cringe. I began a

There's No Time To Waste

I thank God for all our faithful brothers and sisters at Living Waters / Way of the Master Ministries. I'm especially thankful for how God has charged them with the task of exhorting and equipping saints to join the battle for souls for the glory of Jesus Christ. None of us know when our last day is, so let's live like it's everyone else's - and lovingly, with great passion and without watering down God's truth, share with them, the Way of eternal life; through Christ Jesus alone. I was so incredibly encouraged by this video. I pray that God will ignite your heart to preach the Gospel to those who are now, where we were a position of enmity with God. May we be so humbled and grateful for our own salvation, that we burn with passion to share this gift of life with others.

When to Say: "AMEN"

I've always told my boys one of my most favorite things is to be found in error by anyone I've ever taught (whether my own children or those God has graciously given me to disciple or counsel). I know that sounds a bit strange, but after I explain why, I'm sure you'll desire this as well. Any teacher is blessed to see their student(s) not only has actually paid close attention to their lessons, but have also trained themselves to apply what they've learned - through research, much study, meditation and personal reflection. Now, when it comes to being a mother training up her children in "the Way they should go" ( Proverbs 22:6 ), her greatest desire is that her children learn to walk in the truth as they themselves begin to study Scripture on their own; testing everything ( Acts 17:10-11 , 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 , 1 John 4:1 ), from having been taught that only God is perfectly omniscient and all human beings (including mom) are fallible. With this u

Praying From and For Your Soul

Okay, I'm being a TOTAL copy cat today! I just saw this over at our faithful sister Heidi's blog (if you've never, you've GOT to go visit this precious sister). I hope this makes your heart cry out "YIPEEEE!!!" Like it did mine! ♥ 9 Ways to Pray for Your Soul January 2, 2009 | By: John Piper Category: Commentary Here are some ways to pray for yourself so that you're praying in sync with the way God works. 1. For the desire of my heart to be toward God and his Word. Incline my heart to Your testimonies and not to gain. ( Psalm 119:36 ) 2. For the eyes of my heart to be opened. Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law. ( Psalm 119:18 ) 3. For my heart to be enlightened with these “wonders.” [I pray] that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened. ( Ephesians 1:18 ) 4. For my heart to be united, not divided, for God. O Lord, I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name. ( Psalm 86:11 )
