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. 

Lockdown WHAT?

During this lockdown.  Stay at home order.  Quarantine.  Whatever you want to call it, period, what has everyone been up to?  What keeps one busy when you're stuck at home.  No work.  Online school.  Routines are messed up.  What even is a schedule anymore?
I mean my family is a homeschool family and my dad has been mostly working from home for the past few months, so really not much has changed for us.  We're pretty good at keeping ourselves busy and entertained.  But at the same time we have no church groups.  No Sunday services.  No coffee dates with friends or venturing out in a our new town.  It has been hard as we had just found somewhat of a routine and trying our best to make friends in our new home town and then this happened.  So that has been hard.  And most of my family is a 'get out of the house' kind of people.  That can seriously mean anything as long as we get out once a day, new shops, coffee or lunch, or at least grocery shopping.  Anything really.  So now we're mostly stuck at home, trying our best to at least get out and walk once a day and not eat our guts out because what else are we to do.
So we've created a challenge for each other.

  • 100 push ups a day for 30 days

It's suppose to do something amazing for your body.  But I mean let's be real... us girls can hardly do 'real' push ups, and for sure can't do 100- so we've stuck with 50 a day which is something.  I'm not even sure my parents are actually doing it or just saying they will do it... eventually.  
I've added-
  • 100 squats a day
To that challenge.

AND to add to that list we:

  • Facetime friends almost every day for at least a couple/few hours
  • Read- a lot
  • Blog & All that
  • Try to find new business starts ups
  • Sleep
  • Watch Movies
  • Did I mention walk...
  • Create websites
  • Get my new residency squared away... officially have the right license plates.  Good-bye California plates.  Tears.
  • Buy things I shouldn't because I don't have a job, but at least I'll be able to rollar skate now.  I'd say that it's worth it.
