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.

2020 Update

So it's been a while and a lot has changed.  Moving.  Heart break.  More heart break.  What a year in a half its been.  It's probably been more like two years at this point.  Life took a crazy ride.  An up and down adventure.  Filled with lots and lots of tears.  Lots of wounds, opened and opened again. Lost friends.  Broken trusts.  It's moved me across the country.  To a new place.  A new home.  A new culture, people and area.  So many trees.  Weather changes.  Lots and lots of rain and cloudy days.  More free time.  More time to read and study.  Time to heal from the hurt and work through areas I've really struggled in.  Time to grow in trust as I work through a change in life, a change in everything I once new.  Time to get to know new people and a new culture.
Learning to trust the Lord is hard.  Learning to fight the fear and anxiety of life all around you is a constant battle.  You often have to surrender your hopes, dreams, and desires to Him.  You have to acknowledge the pride in your heart and hold everything with an open hand as you learn to trust that the Lord has a perfect plan for your life.  Whether thats what you want or not.  Remember Romans 8, that God is good.  He is always good and sovereign.  Even if it's hard and it hurts.  He's growing us and sanctifying us.  Letting go is hard.  But we have to trust the Lord.  I want to control so many things and I want to have a perfect and clear path for my life and right now that's not happening and I'm learning to let and go and trust the Lord has perfect plan right where He has me and is growing me and sanctifying in so many ways that, in a few years, I hope can look back and thank the Lord for this season of waiting.
