Do something about the problem

Obstacles? Deal with Them Now
By Brian Cavanaugh

An old farmer had plowed around a large rock in one of his fields for years. He had broken several plowshares and a cultivator on it and had grown rather morbid about the rock.

After breaking another plowshare one day, and remembering all the trouble the rock had caused him through the years, he finally decided to do something about it.

When he put the crowbar under the rock, he was surprised to discover that it was only about six inches thick and that he could break it up easily with a sledgehammer. As he was carting the pieces away he had to smile, remembering all the trouble that the rock had caused him over the years and how easy it would have been to get rid of it long ago.


Are there rocks in your life you’ve been plowing around, complaining and bemoaning each time you go by? Maybe it’s time to stop and do something about them. With the help of divine Love, there’s a solution that can crack that problem in pieces and make it removable from your field of labor.

  1. Well its always been interesting how the
    Topics for this seem to be very relevant to
    My present life situation.I guess the
    Author is in tune and listens well to direction
    From the divine.for my rock is not facing
    A problem fully spiritually “bringing all the guns”
    To bear sort of thing.using all that I’ve learned
    About cs practice and applying it so that
    I can also grow.not putting the net on the right
    Side of the ya I should use it all
    When dealing wwith problems not in a half cocked way,
    and wonder why the problem is not melting away so quickly
    As I would like.John in OttawaNCanadaM

  2. Sometimes I think I’m not getting the message, but just this morning – think ten minutes ago – the thought came to quit skirting a “rock” I’ve been overlooking and deal with it instead . . . and then I read your message. Thanks Evan, your timely suggestion has been heard. I know what the next step is. Stay tuned.
