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…

The Lord is my Refuge



This week has been interesting.  Hard, but good.  I'm being stretched in so many ways; work, school, and etc.  Work is always helping me to grow to be a better person, though not easy, I'm learning to communicate, better organize myself, and work through my mistakes.  School is teaching me to schedule better and be patient.  My classes both have a lot assignments that are time consuming.  School can take up to 30 hours a week. Hey, I guess this is the college life. 
The Lord is good.  He is putting me in situations that are hard, but He is my rock, the thing that gives me the strength to get through each thing, though not always with the best attitude, but I'm growing.  He is teaching me to be patient, to love people who are harder to love, to trust Him and not worry, and to put others first and before my needs.  I don't always react the right way, I often get mad, or want something better.  I'm a sinner, growing in Christ through His grace and love.

I often worry about what people think of me.  This effects so much in my life.  How I act around people.  How I treat people.  How I feel about myself.  How I think of people.  It's pride in my heart that can rule most of my days.  It's funny to see how much it can take over my thoughts and actions, my joy or my worry.

All I need is YOU, Lord.

It's really nice to take a break, a moment to yourself and enjoy friends, family, and the things around you.  Hang out, laugh, be comfortable, enjoy the salty air, the cold breeze, greasy food, best friends, and just be myself.  I was able to do this last night, enjoying the night at Seaport Village, just talking, shopping, and eating.  I praise the Lord for moments like these.  Last weekend we went to the Zoo and Old Town for my dad's birthday and it was another nice break from the norm.  I love doing things like this.  I love being with people who make me feel comfortable being me, who don't want something from me, who just love me for me.  There is a lot to be thankful for, even in the busy times, there is always something to thank the Lord for.


But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works. Psalm 73.28
