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.  
But feelin…

A few books:

I realized I have forsaken writing book reviews lately, which is bad because I have read a lot of books in the past few months and can't remember them all!
One of the books that I really liked was the the true story of Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer and their imprisonment in Afghanistan, for sharing their faith in Christ. While in the middle of this trail the events of September 11, 2001 happen and the war brakes out.  Their faith is tested, and many hard days were in store for them.  The book tells us what their lives where like before their arrest and leading up to their rescue from the U.S. Special Forces.  I really liked this book-Prisoners of Hope!
I also read the last book in the serious Love Comes Softly-Love Finds A Home.  Living in Boston had made Belinda restless and uneasy inside. She didn't know where she belonged.    She has big decision to make but she just doesn't know what to do.  A sad tragedy, brings her even more confessed and bewildered. What will she do with her life?  And then a person she never thought she would see again shows up in her live, leaving her excited and all mixed up inside!  Will she ever settle down like most women?  What will become of Belinda Davis?
I read all eight books of the Violet Travilla serious.  They are really good books about Vi as she grows up and the struggles she faces.  We see her dreams and hopes in the first couple books and then we see them start to unfold as she gets older.
I read A Gown of Spanish Lace, which is about a young girl who is kidnapped by a gang of rough men who kill and steal for a living.  She is kidnapped to make the bosses son more manly because he won't kill anyone and they believe that if he falls in love with her he would do anything to protect her.  But it didn't work the way they wanted.  Instead of falling in love with the girl he feels sorry for her and starts to become angry at his father for his cruelty.  And the girl makes him think about his past, about his mother that he never knew and then serious of interesting and exciting events happen as his past starts to unfold.  
The last book I read was Roses for Mama.  It was about a family who had lost their parents and were now left to care for themselves.  Angela was young but she already had to take care of the household duties and her younger siblings. Thomas the oldest already took the responsibility of a man taking his father's place and caring for the family and farm. They both struggle as they try to raise their siblings as their parents would have but they are still young and their siblings are growing fast each facing their own struggle and trail.  And then they have themselves to think of, will their hopes and dreams ever come true?
Well, I believe and hope that was all the books I have missed!
