You wisely chose the particular scripture passage David wrote (by Holy Spirit of course) after he repented of his great sins with Bathsheba and her husband. That's definitely an appropriate reference for brokeness.

One sentence I thought needed revision was this one: "The plow cuts through the earth making a deep cut into the ground..." The earth and the ground are the same thing so it is repetitive. I think you should choose one phrasing or the other.

The message presented carried a loving and gentle spirit and caused me to want to put my feet into feshly plowed earth. I'd never experienced doing that until I read your first paragraph. Thank you.

I love your image of a seed for this topic! Thanks too for the verse, it is great comfort to the suffering and broken!

Great image of the broken earth, seed and new growth. I like the psalm you included as well, adding to the image of our sin/brokenness coming as a fruit of the Spirit's work in us.

A publishable devotional! Well-written and thought provoking.
