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…

Divergent Serious

In the city of Chicago, there are five factions, the Candor (honest), Abnegation (selfless),  Dauntless (brave),  Erudite, (intelligent), and the Amity (peaceful). Every citizen at the age of sixteen on a certain day must choose which faction he or she will spend the rest of their lives in.  Either stay with their family and friends or leave, never to return.  Beatrice must make the hard choice, to stay or to leave.  Her choice will change her life forever and nothing will ever be the same again.  And she will have to keep a big secret, because if anyone finds out she is divergent, she will die.
This was my favorite book in the serious

The fractions are a mess, war threatens their comfortable lives and Tris is in the middle of it.  Her life is crazy and grief and guilt are gnawing at her.  Will she be able to think straight to help those whom she loves?  Or will she sacrifice her life because of the pain?

The factions are gone.  There is no more life as Tris and her friends knew it to be and know they are outside the city gates, finding out all the secretes and lies of their past life.  Will they be able to forgive those who caused them so much pain and confusion?  Will they be able straighten out their lives and make right all the wrong?  Will they be able to help those who are in trouble?

I really liked these books!  Super good and interesting...really hard to put them down.

This book was more intense on the intimacy part.  The love story was too much and had a lot of detail.  There was some things said and then things done also.  A lot of in depth kissing and then two scenes, one in the second book and then in the third that was not good and I had to skim over them.  Other than that and a few bad words in each book, they were good.
