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.

Forest Born

This book is from the same author (Shannon Hale) of Princess Academy and yet another book that I really enjoyed.

The fourth book in The Books of Bayern series ( I have yet to read the first three, but hope to do that soon), this one is about a forest born girl named Rin.
Rin is the youngest child of seven and the only girl.  As she gets older she becomes Ma's shadow and a girl who turns to the trees for comfort.  Until one day the trees seem to reject her and she finds no peace in them, but rather depression and heartache. Nothing seems right any more and she doesn't know what to do.  When her brother Razo returns to the city she goes with him, hoping to find herself out there.  While there she goes on an adventure that will change her life and mood.

~This book had one particular kiss that I did not like, but other than that I remember it being rather clean.~

One thing I got from this book is that words can hurt, whether it's a magical power you possess or just plain you, a sinner with or without Christ, you can hurt someone with your words.  It could be small or simple, but to that one person it is a slap to the face.  Words can uplift too and bring good.  But we need to think before we speak and choose are words wisely.
