In 1936 Richard C. Halverson, Former Chaplain of the US Senate, received a copy of My Utmost for His Highest. He was given this treasure as a Christmas gift and began reading it Jan 1, 1937. The copyright was renewed in 1963 and is the ‘most popular book of daily devotions ever published.’ In his introduction to the devotional Mr. Halverson states, “No book except the Bible has influenced my walk with Christ at such deep and maturing levels.”
I couldn’t agree more. I received my copy in June 2010 - a very traumatic year in my life. This book, along with the Bible, helped to strengthen my faith during a time of vulnerability. In doing so, it renewed my hope when life seemed very dark.
Though I am occasionally edified by other very good devotionals, My Utmost... is the one that remains a constant. As I begin another year’s journey through this devotional, this time I will share my journey.
