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…

Beginning of Fall (2018) Semester

It's been a while.  A hot minute since I last posted.  There's something about starting school, getting back into the swing of things, and organizing things that make me want to sit down and actually write a post.  I've read three books in the last two weeks, it's been a while since I've done that.  And when I'm on a role with reading then I feel like I need to be on a role with posting on here and then also my book review blog.  But whenever I try to write a book review it never, ever comes out right.  I'm scared to share too much, but also not enough.  I'm a super private person.  Unless I'm with my family, then I'm probably considered a complainer with them.  But around other people it's hard for me to really open up, it takes a while to trust and I have to be good friends and really like them to be comfortable enough to share.  So writing a blog post on some, somewhat personal things can be intimating.  A little haunting.  Did I mention I also over think everything which is another reason I'm not SUPER big on social media thing.  I enjoy it, do it once in a while, but mostly I just spy on others.  I'm really good at that.  I see things, I notice.  I like to watch and read people.  I sometimes can feel other people's emotions, but also be completely drowned in them as well.  It's been a good few months to learn to love, forgive and see a lot of my own sin as I walk through this crazy life.  It's good to just live in the grace of today.  Not worrying about tomorrow, sufficient is today's troubles.

I start school this week. Yay.  NO, really this will be a good, but different year for me.  It's my first time EVER, taking a class on campus.  I'm excited, but also a bit nervous. I know it's good for me, but I'm just not sure how I will do learning in a class room setting, I don't think I'll do as well.  But it's a little hoorah for my last semester.  After these three(?) months I'll be done with school, that's the plan at least.  I'll have two certificates that will allow me to apply at other office managements or bookkeeping positions if I ever needed or wanted to.  I mean, I might take a class or two for fun with my sister, but I'm really planning on being done with school... forEVER.

To the beginning of my last semester
