These rocks get in the way of us receiving from the Lord all that He has for us. We cannot layer truths on top of these hurts because there isn’t any way for that truth to take root. These stones are only moved when we walk back over to them. We must place our hands on the rock-hard surface of our broken hearts and reach out in desperation for the hem of the Healer’s cloak.
The first practice of plowing that we’ll discuss is that of telling the Lord the whole truth. Jesus invites us into His presence and acknowledges our presence in His. “Who touched me?” He asked the woman in Mark 5:32, and she fell before Him and told Him the whole truth. Might we be bold enough to do the same?
