    Self-Awareness " Come to Me . . . —Matthew 11:28 " God intends for us to live a well-rounded life in Christ Jesus, but there are times when that life is attacked from the outside. Then we tend to fall back into self-examination, a habit that we thought was gone. Self-awareness is the first thing that will upset the completeness of our life in God, and self-awareness continually produces a sense of struggling and turmoil in our lives. Self-awareness is not sin, and it can be produced by nervous emotions or by suddenly being dropped into a totally new...

    Does He Know Me . . . ? " He calls his own . . . by name . . . —John 10:3 " When I have sadly misunderstood Him? (see John 20:11-18). It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus. A person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge of doctrine surpasses Jesus, avoiding intimate touch with Him.

    I just saw this announced in a streamer over the golf game on TV, sent text to my daughter, who is shopping in another town and had no idea. She and her husband are racing home. Their home is very close to this fire. Please join me in praying for all who live near this fire and especially for Katy and Fred and their dogs. May they stay free of fire, dear Lord, and damages of every kind. Thanks so much, Veto!
