Are You Always the Hero of Your Stories?

Several years back I experienced one of those “ah-ha” moments. My wife and I were hanging out together and seemed to be quite enjoying some time of conversation.

    Good heavens, of all the days for you to post this! I was literally writing a post about myself AS HERO and thought I’d check my email. Lo and behold, there’s Tim Witten reposting something called, “Are You Always the Hero of Your Stories? ”

    What to do? What to DO?!

    You are thinking, “Ah. I saved a poor wretch from a lifetime (or at least a moment) of Pride.”

    Well, I actually decided to publish it…I hope you can forgive me and if you decide to read it, I *think* you’ll see why.

    Thanks for reposting it Tim.

    btw: “3) Jesus can’t be the hero when you are.” That’s fabulous and painful.

      Hi Chris… Hahah, I think your hero story gets an exception 😉 and I’m glad to be reminded of Tozer’s, The Knowledge of The Holy… a favorite of mine in many ways. Good to hear from you… trusting you are well. -Tim
