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. 

Books from March (Pt. 1)

The Power of Six
The Second book in the Lorien Legacies serious and a really fun and adventurous book.  I read the first one a couple of weeks ago, I am Number Four, and really liked that book also. 
John Smith must leave Paradise, Ohio now, because of all the destruction. He, Six, and Sam leave  hoping to find the other four and along the way hid from those who are searching for them.  Not only do they have to hid from Mogdorians, but also the authorities of the US who think they are terrorist.
Number Seven is also hoping to reunite with the others, but can't leave the convent until she is 18.  She is stuck feeling hopeless and useless, with no training and a distracted guardian, who was suppose to train her to battle the Mogdorians.
~There is cussing in this serious and also a lot of drama centered around relationships and going back and forth between liking this girl and that girl.  There is some flirting and kissing (one kiss in particular that I didn't like and feel was inappropriate). 

I really liked this book!  It reminds me a lot like The Giver, where the people are controlled by the Officials who choose who you marry, what you will eat, where you will work, and how long you will live. Though in this book they do have feelings. 
Cassia is happy and content with her life and trust everything to the Officials, until she sees two different faces for her match.  She now is face with a hard decision that won't go away, will she marry Xander or Ky?  The Officials never make mistakes and Xander is suppose to be her Match, but her feelings for Ky are budding...
The whole society seems to fall apart for Cassia and the once perfect life, where the Officials make the decisions for her, isn't so perfect anymore.
