A Young Girl’s Obedience. God’s Ever-Present Grace.
“God asks for faithfulness, not for compromise: Sow not thy ﬁeld with mingled seed.”
Amy Carmichael, admired writer and missionary, tells the story of Arulai Tara (Star of Grace), the sister of Mimosa. Arulai was given a notebook during a great illness and told to “write what you can of the coming of the call of the unseen Spring.” This book reveals the importance of preparing ourselves for obedience to God’s call in our lives; the beauty in remaining faithful in preparing the ground God has given us.
In the words of St. John of the Cross, Plowed Under illuminates for the reader the importance of “[living] in the world as though there were in it but God and thy soul.”
