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…

The Maze Runner:
I finished this book a few weeks ago.  I really liked it.
It was about a group of boys who were placed in the 'glade'.  A big place that is almost like a prison for teen boys.  No way for escape, only the Maze that is on the outside of the big walls.  Everyday a big door opens for the gladers to search the Maze and then the door closes for the night.
Thomas comes just like all the other gladers did.  Through a big elevator that comes from the ground, with his memory erased.  But Thomas is different.  He feels like he knows the place and even some of the gladers say they have seen him before.
Thomas triggers the end of the glade.  Will the gladers be able to accomplish what they had hoped to do from the beginning...find a way out of the Maze?

The Scourge Trials:
This book is the second book in the Maze Runner series.
Thomas and his friends thought they were through with all hardships, but they were wrong.  Everything about the W.I.C.K.E.D. program is mysterious and things they thought were real they aren't sure if they are and they can't tell the good guys from the bad guys.
Now they must go through another trial...the scourge.  This time it is promised to be much harder.  Will they be able to do it and how many more of them must die, to accomplish what W.I.C.K.E.D. hopes to accomplish?

Because of Mr. Terupt:
This book was amazing.  Another read-out-loud for school that had me at least in tears.
This story is about the teacher Mr. Terupt who comes along side each of the children in his class and makes a difference in their lives. The children don't know how much they need him and love him until an accident happens...
