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.

Amish Books

The Healing~
This book was about a Samuel Fisher and Esther Beiler, who both are struggling with what to do next in life.
Samuel had just lost his wife and moved, with his four children to a new place.  He struggles with raising his children and moving on in life.
Esther's parents left her, so they could go help her brother who was sick.  She is now all alone, making her own decisions.
She watches Samuel kids for him and she learns to love them and soon Samuel also.  But jealousies arise and it looks like Samuel could never love her back.
Will these two ever find happiness again?

The Reckoning~
Katie Fisher had found her birth mother, left her Amish life behind, and began to live in the big city with all the things she had missed as a Plain Girl.
But could she really be happy in such a place.  Doubts and memories start to arise and Katie no longer knows what to do with her life.  She could continue to live in her mother's big house and marry a man who seemed interested in her.  Or she could go back home and marry the man whom she loved long ago.
This book was good and better than the book, The Healing, because it gave more details about what the Amish believes, and the difference of their believes than what the Bible really teaches.
