Day 21: Multi-Tasking Monday

I'm talking to you


I'm texting someone else


I'm checking my email


I'm thinking about what I'm going to do next


Doing that too!


Never getting anything done

because while you doing what you need to do

you are doing everything else that you need to do


Doing everything at once but nothing at all

Not living in the moment

Because the moment you are in is another moment


You are probably doing it right now


Not being present because you are being present somewhere else

How does multitasking keep you from being in the present?

What if Jesus multitasked?


He was feeding the 5000

He was also

Walking on water


Healing the blind man


Turning water into wine


Teaching the sermon on the mount


Calming the sea


Eating His Last Supper

Hmm...think about it.

But Jesus was

Always present~

Even on the cross

When He was thinking about you and me

He was present

Or He would have never got on the cross

So He could be present in your present

To walk with you

To wipe your tears

To strengthen you

To be your peace

To be your hope

To just be

All you need when you need it.

Have you ever tried Multitasking with Jesus?

If you have

you wouldn't be able to multitask

because you would be in the presence of the

One Who is always Present.

Multitasking Martha tried it~

"As she was distracted with all her preparations"

In the presence of Jesus...

But then their eyes met


He spoke to her...

“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary."

Jesus had to say her name twice

probably because

She had to hear it twice


She was doing twice as much as what she thought

She had to do

instead of

Doing the most important thing first!

Instead, like Mary did...

who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what He said.~

Mary, who

"has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:38-42)

So Let's fast from



Doing the most important first~

Inviting Jesus into our

Multitasking Mess~

Because He is always in the moment


You will

Get all you need to get done

One thing at a time

moment by moment!

So how many things are you going to do right now?

What are your thoughts & prayers?
