Day 21: Multi-Tasking Monday


I'm talking to you

While

I'm texting someone else

While

I'm checking my email

While

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

And

Doing that too!

Multitasking

Never getting anything done

because while you doing what you need to do

you are doing everything else that you need to do

Multitasking

Doing everything at once but nothing at all

Not living in the moment

Because the moment you are in is another moment

Multitasking

You are probably doing it right now

Multitasking

Not being present because you are being present somewhere else

How does multitasking keep you from being in the present?

What if Jesus multitasked?

While

He was feeding the 5000

He was also

Walking on water

and

Healing the blind man

and

Turning water into wine

And

Teaching the sermon on the mount

and

Calming the sea

while

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

When

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

because

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

multitasking

by

Doing the most important first~

Inviting Jesus into our

Multitasking Mess~

Because He is always in the moment

Therefore,

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?
