The Battle Between Truth & Feelings

"The worst battle I've ever fought is between what I knew and what I felt."How true is this?  Emotions and feelings can feel so like truth.  They can be so blinding, leading us on a goose chase to get what we think (feel) we need.  They become the thing we live for and strive after.  They can lead you away from good friendships, from the truth you grew up learning, running from good and clear counsel.  It's so dangerous to chase after your feelings, believe them to be truth over everything else- over true wisdom, truth, honesty, true love and friendship, and blind you to follow after the worlds version of truth or what your heart wants.  How scary is that. 
What we know is truth...
We know as believers that God's word is the only source of truth.  It is our anchor, our truth, what we live by.  When the world feeds us lies and these half-truths fueled to feed our sinful desires, we can always turn to God's word to lead us and guide us in our lives.

Uncle Tom's Cabin

This book was long and slow but it was filled with good detail about slavery.  It told of the horrible things people would do to their salves and though all salve owners weren't bad most of them treated their salves worse than animals. 
This book was really sad as I read how Uncle Tom was sold from his wife and young children to a new owner far away.  And how they feared they would never see each other again.
And then there was Eliza who was not able to live with her own husband because he belonged to a different master.  And then she overheard her owner say that he was going to sell her young son.  She made a desperate move and ran away.  But would she be able to get to Canada before they found her?
This book was a hard book to read but a good one because of the tales it tells...and how God worked through the salves and salve owners!
