During World War I, Biddy Chambers, her husband, and small daughter moved to Egypt, where he served as a chaplain. He taught, she transcribed. It was a perfect partnership.
Then her husband’s complications from appendicitis rendered Biddy a widow. All dreams of a teaching ministry would have to be abandoned, right? No. She turned her husband’s notes into pamphlets. Eventually they were compiled into a book, My Utmost for His Highest. This work of Oswald Chambers has sold more than thirteen million copies and has been translated into more than thirty-five languages.
The next time you feel overwhelmed remind yourself of the One who is standing next to you. Give him what you have, offer thanks, and watch him go to work. Remember, friends, you are never alone.
