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…

~One of my new favorite books~

I just finished reading this book called the Healers Apprentice.  I really liked it.  It is one of my new favorite books!
I have been pretty busy lately that I haven't been able to read much and also because a tiny thing called 'not finding any books I found interesting'. 
But for a couple a weeks I get to take it easy and read...I hope! 
I was so excited when I got this book (I had been wanting to get it for a while, but I couldn't find it at the library so I had to buy it and thanks to birthday and Christmas money I bought it a couple days ago!)
It was perfect...a book genre that I had totally missed reading!  Romance and Fantasy...
I did try reading this book called Inkspell a sequel to Inkheart (which they made a movie of) last week, but it was so long and dragging, I couldn't' finish it.  It was also a fantasy.  So yeah, I crossed those books of my list this week! :)
So, back to The Healers Apprentice. 
It is about a girl named Rose who is the apprentice to the physician in the land, but she doesn't actually fit well in the position, because she gets queasy at the sight of blood and can't stich properly. 
Duke Wilhelm is betrothed, but he must save his betrothed from the evil Moncore before he can marry her or even see her.
Rose's and Duke Wilhelm's paths intervene and the two became friends.  But Rose is a mere peasant girl and Wilhelm a Duke who is betrothed.  Is there a way for the two of them to be together? 
This book was written by a Christian author and demonstrates the sheer truth that there is a spiritual battle going on around us and that we must lean and wait on Christ and He will direct our steps and do what is good for us.
There was romance in this book, a few passionate kisses, hugs and thoughts, but other then that it is a decent book, if I remember correctly!
