I’ve been addicted to self-awe all my life, but I’ve lived in denial, because it’s so humiliating/embarrassing to see myself as an egomaniac, when I’ve thought of myself in much-more noble terms. I’ve been clear-sighted about self-deception in others, but blind to my own. I should have known better, because I’ve been quoting my wife for years: “You spot it, you got it.” But evidently I’ve been too fragile to look inside and recognize my common ground with other egomaniacs.
But as Jesus has been growing me in self-awareness, He’s also been growing me in self-acceptance, and the more self-accepting one is, the more he can be grown further in self-awareness. Not a pretty picture to see. But. I’m experiencing healing deep in my soul that is yielding a peace I never thought possible this side of Glory. Ahhh.
