a blog created to help me meet the challenge of having a quiet time with God every day. Most of the time I will be using Oswald Chambers' devotional, My Utmost for His Highest. On occasion, I have given myself permission to divert from that. As long as God gets the glory!

The Ministry of Inner Life
"You are...a royal priesthood..." I Peter 2:9
How long is it going to take God to free us from the unhealthy habit of thinking only about ourselves? We must get to the point of being sick to death of ourselves, until there is no longer any surprise at anything God might tell us about ourselves. We cannot reach and understand the depths of our own meagerness. There is only one place where we are right with God, and that is in Christ Jesus.
