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.

Do Hard Things

This book is amazing!  It is written for teens by teens.  I love how they describe it on the front,
 'A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations.'
That is what this book is about.  It encourages kids to step out of their comfort zones to do hard things.  And when you do step out of your comfort zone you are leaning more on God because you know without His help you could never do it.
This book also gives examples of kids who have stepped out of their comfort zone and the outcome that came from it.  They're stories were all truly amazing.  I would encourage everyone who is either going into, already there, or already out of their teen years to read this book!
