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. 

2 Books

The Death Cure~
This book is the third book in the Maze Runner series.  I will say that I did like this book more then the second book, though the first one is my favorite.  Thomas and his friends are done with W.I.C.K.E.D. using them, so they make a rash decision to run and get away.  But it isn't much better out in the real world.  The whole place is infected with a deadly virus called the Flare and Thomas isn't sure what to do with himself.  He doesn't remember much about the world because his memory was swiped before he went into the maze. 
The world isn't a good place to live and it looks like the human race will be swiped out for good or will it?

A Tale of Two Sons~
I actually really enjoyed this book.  It is a book that takes us deeper into the parable Jesus told to the Pharisees, the parable of the Prodigal Son.
I learned a lot more about this parable and why Jesus told it.  It helped me also to realize that this parable is not just a story, but something with meaning that wasn't only for the audience of Jesus when He told it, but also for us who are reading it!
