Earlier today, I heard someone say ‘Put the Big Rocks in First’.
They were discussing the importance of putting first things first. Deciding what is, what is important, and securing those things in order of importance.
Later, I was thinking of this expression and how it should be applied to my life as a woman of God.

I decree and I declare I will seek God and please him all the more today and forever more.
But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).
But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well (Luke 12:31).
So: If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be (Ecclesiastes11:3).
Then… I will have taken care of my soul first, then take care of other concerns thereafter.
If I give my heart to Christ:
then I can take some courses and get that degree
then I can build my business
then I can date, get married, etc.
then I can do this or that…
