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. 

Thoughts on TODAY
This virus has really rocked our world.  I think everything that I've learned in these last two years is to live with eternity in mind.  As I battle the temptation to constantly be anxious, complain, and worry I'm learning to be content and trust the Lord through all the unknown.  And boy is it hard.  Who would have thought this very tiny small bug could shut down the world?  Who would have thought how much could be effected by such a thing?  Well God did.  And we can take comfort in knowing that.  He is good through this.  HE has plan through this.  Going through some hard trials this last year has really given me more of the desire to be to be in heaven with Christ and not here, with all the pain and the unknown.  But as I began to slowly heal, and adjust to my new life and my new area this virus came and changed everything again.  And all those fears from years ago came back.  I don't want to lose control.  I don't want life to change like this.  I have so much I want to do still, right?  But God has a plan and changing my thinking is hard and a battle, truly, but it is what the Lord uses to sanctity and grow us in Him.  Who knows how long this will last and how much this will effect everything, but we can ALWAYS trust God and His will.  We know that He does loves us.  We know He is good.  Living it is hard, but letting go and letting God is so much better then living in constant fear and anxiety.  Trusting and giving Him our desires and asking His will be down is better then fighting for our own plans, because in all honesty His plans are better and He knows all things.  He sees things I don't and is working in so many different ways, even know.
