Soulful Sunday – Filled to Capacity

On this initial day of 2017, I feel incredibly peaceful. A state of wellbeing overdue and welcomed. As I take a moment to simply reflect, the word that sums up the sensation in my heart is “Gratefulness”.

There are many who did not cross over into this New Year and there are more who won’t see another dawning after today. For this not being my fate, I am grateful! I have yet another chance to make the most out of what God has given me. Yes indeed, I am grateful!

Furthermore, I want for nothing! My very essentials are indeed met without question. I have warm shelter. I have my husband by my side. I have thriving children. I have constant employment. I have reliable transportation. I have a few dependable friends. I have loving spiritual support, guidance and counsel. My health is stable, mind, body and spirit. I have family and haven’t lost anyone dear to my heart in a very long time. Although all that I have mentioned are far from perfect, I am thankful to possess them than to be without them. 

Although truly grateful, my Realboldtruth is that 2016 was far from being that manifested, NOTHING held back, Jubilee year for me personally. The prophetic word I heard midway through the year from a well known Pastor was that by Christmas your life will be so much different. My reality is, my life looked pretty much the same on that day. 

Nothing over-the-top, mind blowing, unexpected or larger than life blessing happened last year after I received the revelation of it being a Jubilee season. I was incredibly humbled to have ministered to others on the topic and I began looking and expecting this incredible “thing” to happen for me before the end of December 31, 2016. What I received instead was simply peace. It’s priceless and I don’t take it lightly. For that, I’m grateful..

Even though 2016 did not unfold the way I interpreted the spiritual utterances I have heard, I recognize that I have so much and I’m filled to capacity. On this day, this truly is enough and I thank my Heavenly Father for his grace, his mercy, his protection, his provision and his presence. I have no expectations although I remain in faith for “Greater” but this time free from anxiety. 

How are you feeling this New Year’s Day?
Are you disappointed about what didn’t happen last year?
If so it’s ok and perfectly human but don’t stay in that mindset because we still have a perfect God that is still very much for us.

Lord, I Love you and I trust you. Thank you for allowing me to see another year. I remain optimistic that the best for my life is still yet to come, just in your timing.

Until next time, Happy Sunday!

  1. Thank you Chanel for this New Years message. Your messages for the year have touched my life and I have been able to share them with others. I too am so grateful for the peace God has given me and to truly be able to repeat the lyrics to the song “It is well with my soul” is only God.

    I can’t wait to see the blessings and opportunities that God will unfold in your life in 2017. So proud of you!

  2. I really needed to read this at this moment in my life. I thought and prayed for one small thing and it didn’t happen. I am thankful and more than blessed for all I have and all I do not have. I too am thankful for God’s will to be done in my life with his understanding of my needs and not my own wants. Praise God for his timeliness.

    1. Hey there my friend! Thank you for chiming in on the conversation! I think I nearly drove myself crazy last year looking and expecting whatever!!! Of course I thought it was related to my writing but NOT! I just want my sanity now! Lol! I’m disappointed but not bitter and unmotivated. That’s good for me. I recognize the growth and I know our heavenly daddy does as well. It’s good enough. Remain with me in a position of peace and I am sure this is when He’ll do the greatest work in our lives. Blessings to you now and always!🤗

  3. Spiritual peace! Praise God for such an awesome blessing. So many in our hurting world are spiritually seeking and searching for peace! Let us give God the praise and communally pray for you to share your testimony. Draw closer to the Word of God rather than the word of man. Only God knows! So proud of you for having the discernment to see what an incredible gift you have been given!
