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.

A Light to My Path

This book was in the perspective of  two slaves during the Civil War. 
Grady who was sold from his mother at a young age and was sold and betted on.  His life had been filled with misery and hatred for the white men and he wanted revenge.
Kitty's whole life had been filled with serving Missy Claire, that she knew no better.  She was treated better than most of the slaves, but she was still treated as an animal.  She believed that she was no better than a slave and did as her mistress asked her without compliant.
Grady was mad at God, thinking He only cared about the white men.
Kitty didn't think anything of God, because He had done nothing for her and she thought so little of herself.
Will Grady ever forgive the white men for what they had done to him?  Will he ever allow God to rule His life?
Will Kitty see that she is more than just a slave...more than just an animal in the sight of white men?  Will she see her need for God?
I really liked this book.  Even though it was hard to see how the slaves were treated, but the perspective was good and the gospel was shared pretty good, I thought!
This book was the third book in the Refiners Fire serious.  One was in the perspective of the south and the other of the north.
These books were really good!
Warning:
This book was filled with some awkward moments of intimacy. The book was in the slaves perspective and they were treated very horribly in this way.  It does not say too much or go into too much details, but it is there.
