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.

Our 4th of July...

 
The guys played baseball!














 
We spent our fourth of July at our Grandpas place like we have since we've been here, but this time we were there without grandpa.  Our first year without him.  It is kind of weird to think about and hard to grasp, but that's just it, no grandpa.  The Lord has brought peace in my heart through this and has allowed me to be ok, but not seeing him during the fourth of July and then not being able to tell him I got my license have been hard reminders, that he is no longer here.
Our Fourth was some what the same like every other year, Aunt Annie and her family were at grandpas place, we spent the afternoon at the beach, swimming in the waves, hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner and an amazing firework show all around us.  This year the boys played baseball with some friends from church, Uncle Kyle came out for the week, and the sun was actually out!
 
 
 
Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it.
