It's been weeks since I've posted on this blog and its not for any particular reason, I just haven't had much to say. Then I realized that I must have a lot to say because someone different asks me EVERYDAY when I'm going to put up a new post on my blog. I didn't know that what I said affected so many people. They may not ask me directly but the somehow it gets back to me. It's crazy to me that people really want to and are waiting to hear what i have to say. So here we are, another post from a simple chic going through her journey in life giving you my simple thoughts that were never so simple before. LOL

I've been told that I've inspired them to do something different in their lives, which amazes me, because who am I?! I've been putting it off and putting it off trying to figure out what to write about next. But I shouldn't have to figure it out, it always comes at the right time. I am a blessed, so blessed to be in this situation that I can be the light to others. I never asked God why I got breast cancer I knew it was always for a purpose. I always knew it was bigger than me. Whether I helped 1 person or hundreds, I know that my thoughts are not always just for me.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Something my pastor (Craig Oliver, Elizabeth Baptist Church) always says is "We are blessed so that we may bless others". In the past I would always think of that in a monetary or materialistic way. Those that know me, know that I am a giver when I have it and even when I don't I try to figure things out to make it work so that I can help someone. What God has shown me is that I am being a blessing by writing these post on my blog.

 It's crazy because I've had people ask me, do you write your blog yourself? I'm thinking who else would be writing MY thoughts for me, LOL. I've never been the one to enjoy writing, ever. My roommate from college (Starr) can attest to that, she helped me with many of my papers. LOL. It's really God using me to through my writing to help others.  When I started this blog, it was just for me to log my journey, now it has become a way for me to be the Light that God has intended me to be. I don't know everything that's going on with everyone reading these post but God does. Each time I write it touches someone in some way and I may never know and I don't need to. I just need to continue to do what God tells me to do.

So my question to you is, Are you doing what God asks of you? You never know who's watching what you do. You never know who's expecting great things from you. You never know that someone is looking up to you from a far or even close for that matter. What you do on a daily basis may not be for you at all, so watch what you do, how you act, and what you say. Not only is God watching but you may me a mentor and not even know it. :) I am SO BLESSED and so are you, so act like it!

Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse--The blessing if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day.Deuteronomy 11: 26-27
