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.

The Hunger Games

Katniss has always had a hard life, ever since her father died.  She had to hunt for food, trying to keep her sister, her mother, and herself alive.  Life became a routine for her, hunting with her friend Gale and then brining that home to help feed all the hungry people in their district. But that changes the day of the reaping when her young sister, the only person she truly loves now that her father is gone, Prim, is called as the girl of their district to fight in the hunger games. Katniss offers to go in for her, leaving her home and family, mostly likely never to return.  But her last promise to her sister is to try very hard to make it back.
 Peeta is also chosen from their district, but Katniss hardly knows him except as the boy who saved her life because of his kindness in giving her food when she was close to death.
After all the fuss and training Katniss is soon in the arena fighting for her life.  Will she make it out alive even though everything and everyone seems against her? 
I really enjoyed this book!


Catching Fire~
This is the second book in the Hunger Games.  Katniss has lived through the Hunger Games and made history with bringing Peeta out with her also, the first time two people have ever came out alive.  But the capital thinks she has rebelled and she has to prove to the other districts that she was madly in love with Peeta, instead of rebelling against the capital, or her family will die.  But the districts have already started an uprising and nothing can stop that...so as to teach everyone a lesson and to remind them who is the strongest, the capital brings Katniss and the other districts remaining victors back into the arena.  And now chances for Katniss coming out alive again seem impssoible so she puts all her strength into saving Peeta and to make sure he gets out alive. 
I really enjoyed this book also!
