Chynna. Lost in thought most of the time. Usually has my nose in a book. Loves to doodle and dabble in the artsy stuff. Sort of a wallflower. Nature is inspiring. Music makes me happy. Loves anything dorky, cute, or weird.

“Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.”

– Neil Gaiman (via observando)

“It is just a body. The more you can be neutral about a body, the better. Bodies change, and many times they change from things out of your control. Bodies do not, and never will, have anything to do with your value.”

– Bevin Branlandingham  (via lostgal49)

"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)"
-“Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior”
(https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dy9nwe9_xzw)

Breathe in. Breathe out. De-stress. Take today to relax your body and mind because the future holds wonderful things for you, all you need to do is be patient and trust your heart because, whether you believe in God or not, your heart knows were to lead you.  Your dreams and passions have been put there for a reason. That reason is for you to feed that little spark by sharing your dreams and passions with the world. Once you do, your life will be one of pure bliss and good fortune. I know this because of the verse Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares The Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” 

So be patient and let life take you where you’re suppose to be. Life is one of those things that can’t really be controlled, so step out of the drivers seat and enjoy the views from the passenger seat as your heart and soul (God) take you to your beautiful destination. 

#iRefuse to stress over the plans I have for my life, and will instead follow my heart’s desires and allow God’s hand to help me along the way.

This week’s #SaturdayRoleModel is the frontman of Memphis May Fire, Matty Mullins.I love how he isn’t ashamed of his faith in God and loves to share it with the world. He wants to share God’s love with everyone because it is a truly unconditional love that accepts anyone as long as they allow God into their heart and allow him to take the wheel and guide them on their journeys in life. #iRefuse to be ashamed of my faith in God and am proud to be a Christian, because while I put my life in the hands of God, He will never let me drown. Here are a few quotes taken from Matty’s interview with Alternative Press that stood out to me (http://www.altpress.com/features/entry/matty_mullins_solo_album_interview_2014):"Let me tell you something about the Christian religion: It’s the only religion in the world that claims you don’t have to do anything to earn your place with Jesus. He created you. He defined you. He earned it for you. He came down and paid the price. GOD DOESN’T WANT RELIGION. HE WANTS A RELATIONSHIP.""So if you’re judging people by how they look, you’re just a product of your place in time and the generation you’re in. Jesus didn’t judge people based on appearances. He was hanging out with tax collectors and prostitutes. WHO ARE WE TO NOT GIVE SOMEONE THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT? TO NOT LOVE THEM WHEN THEY DON’T LOVE US? It’s such an important idea, and it’s something I’m realizing more and more in my life.""EVERYTHING YOUDO FOR THE WORLD THAT MAKES YOU THAT YOURSELF, YOU CAN TAKE THAT OFF, YOU CAN BE JUST EXACTLY AS YOU ARE FOR THE GOD THAT CREATED YOU, AND THAT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST ENOUGH. It’s incredible that you can find your deepest fulfillment in Him, and then you can go out to the world and be yourself, and be confident in that, and you can be excited about that, and you don’t have to be looking for acceptance, because you’re already accepted by the only person that acceptance matters from."-How do you hope this record (solo album) impacts your younger fans?"I want kids to go to school and be like, “Matty Mullins just put out a record that’s all about Jesus! I DON’T NEED TO HIDE MY FAITH ANYMORE. I look up to him so if he’s flaunting it, I can flaunt mine too! If he gets flack but doesn’t care about it, then I shouldn’t care if I get flack. When I need encouragement, I’ll look through that lyric booklet and KNOW THAT SOMEONE IS STRUGGLING WITH THE SAME THINGS I DO AND HE IS LOOKING TO JESUS. That’s enough for him, so it’s got to be enough for me!” I’m just stoked. I can’t wait to share this album with the world."Here’s Matty’s song “My Dear” off of his up and coming solo-album —-> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xA0XprjI_MHere’s Memphis May Fire’s song “No Ordinary Love” from their latest album “Unconditional” —-> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKqG2EVzUrg
