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…

Choosing Gratitude

I finally finished Choosing Gratitude and, boy, was it good.

I feel like in this time and place for me it was great and would defiantly recommend it to most anyone.  I am so blessed in ways that most of the world doesn't even understand.  As an American, my comforts are more than most have, and yet I am so prone to grumble and complain.  This generation of Americans have the more comforts and wealth than most people in the world and just a few short years ago anyone had.  And yet we are still as unhappy, and possibly even more depressed.  We have this sense of entitlement, this sense of I deserve this and I deserve that.  But we don't.  We deserve death and wrath.  But God sent His Son down to earth, Jesus Christ, humbled Himself.  He became flesh and He died on the cross for my sins.  For me, so that I may spend eternity with God in heaven.

This week our family is preparing for a trip we've all been waiting months to take.  We are going skiing and snowboarding!  It's been years since I've gone and I'm sure I'm not nearly as good as I was then (and believe me I wasn't even good then).  But we are all so excited.  It's a bit of a birthday get away for my dad and mostly a much needed family vacation.  I know everyone is crazy busy these days and our family is no different.  So a little time away with no distractions will be nice.  Not to mention we are actually going snowboarding.  Owen can hardly wait and is literally counting down the hours.  We are all excited in our own ways and for our own reasons.  

This trip will be a bit different for me in that I will have some school to do.  Yup, I'm bringing homework on our vacation.  But I'm thankful I'm taking an online and that I've been able to get most of it down this week.

Well, you probably won't hear from for a week or so, but I will keep you updated on our trip when we get back!
