Priorities – Put The Rocks First


This last 2 months have been a real emotional rollercoaster for me. Every weekend is still a little bitter-sweet as I pray for our church family we left at Meadowland and embrace our new family at Springbrook.

Our family is well into the transition, and we are now praying for our house to sell. The 2 hour per day commute is killing me. I enjoy the drive and the down time, but for a guy that is typically ‘working’ on something, it feels like such a waste.

One of the things I am really struggling with is finding my devotion and prayer time in my new schedule. I’ve been trying to get back into my connection planner and reading a few email devotions with my Bible, but I just found a link to Discipleship Journal’s 5x5x5 Bible reading plan. It was too cool not to share, so here is the link!

Life is like putting rocks and sand into a glass; if you put the rocks in at the first priority, the lower priority sand will fill in. Here’s to putting God first!

    Hey there, Thanks for sharing your life experiences. We are well in to this transition but I’m still struggeling with it. I do know that God is doing mighty things and that He has called me to be a small part of that journey. God has been in my face on Sunday monrings, whispering in my ear; do you hear me? yes Lord I hear you. How do I do what you’re asking me to do? Well I’m going to start with the 5x5x5, putting the rocks in first and then letting the sand filter in. Thanks Rich, I truly appreciate you. Once again you are an encouragement to me. Thanks! 🙂

  2. Hey there,It is always nice to hear from you! Carolyn and I listened to our voice quilt again last week. That was such an awesome idea. I have a stack of thank you cards I still need to write, and hope to get that done soon. It has been great listening to Gary’s messages on Sunday; know that we are praying for you regularly.Now that you are on Facebook, we can keep in touch there too! Have a great week and tell Ron I said hello.Rich
