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.

The Diamond of Darkhold-
Book four of the City of Ember Series; the People of Ember have now been living with the People of Sparks for a while now.  But living above ground is a lot harder than they all imagined it would be when they first emerged from below. Food is sparse, work is hard, and storms are scary and new. 
The little town of Sparks isn't doing well this winter and Doon and Lina want to do something about it, so they decide to travel back to the City of Ember where a few things were left over.  But their journey takes a turn of unexpected turns and discoveries.
~This book was ok, defiantly not my favorite.  It felt rushed and was centered more for younger ages,  but in all it was a decent read.~

Palace of Mirrors-
Cecilia has always known she was destined for more, that she is the true princess of her kingdom.  All her life she has been keeping this her secret and studying diligently for the day when she will take the throne.  The day when she is no longer in danger.
But her friend makes her question the reasoning for staying away and so she sets off to take the throne and relieve the decoy, the pretender who was there to protect the true princess... but things don't go as plan and stories are messed up.  Isn't Cecilia the true princess, she always believed she was, but now she isn't so sure.

Home is Where the Heart is-
Violet Collingsworth had escaped from her home town, hoping never to return.  But with the death of her grandmother she returns back only ten years later to the place that caused so much heart-ache.  But she never imagined that the possibility of settling down in this town could be real. 
~I felt this book was poorly written and always found myself confused over the facts.  Other than that I it was intriguing and I read it pretty fast.~
