Reading from My Utmost for His Highest, August 18

2 sentences REALLY hit home to me.

"Are you more devoted to your idea of what Jesus wants than to Himself?"
***my confession:
I spend more time fretting over the do's and don'ts, and making sure everyone else is marching to the same drum, when my passion, my devotion should simply be set on Him.***

"Discouragement is disenchanted self-love..."
***now there is a deep and painful thought!***

"Discouragement is disenchanted self-love..."
This is indeed a convicting thought! Perhaps I should paste it to my bathroom mirror and the fridge! Where did you find it? Was this from Oswald Chambers too?

Yes, from O. Chambers.
