Multitasking


My mind went blank

when I was writing out a check.

Such a simple task

until it came to filling out the date.

I remembered the month and the day

and then it happened~

is it 2019 or 2020?

My mind went blank,

which is quite scary

especially since my mind never is blank.

But in that moment

I stopped.

I really stopped.

What is the year?

I had to pull up the calendar

on my phone

and there it was

2019.

Wow.

A senior moment

Or

was it a

MULTITASKING

moment

because I was doing 4000 things at one time

while thinking about 4000 things at one time

while I was trying to complete one simple task

as writing the date.

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.

MULTITASKING~

Not living in the moment

Because the moment that you are in

is actually another moment.

MULTITASKING~

You are probably doing it right now.

MULTITASKING~

Not being present because you are being present somewhere else.

So

How does multitasking keep you from being in the present?

Think About it~

What if JESUS MULTITASKED~

While

HE was feeding the 5000

While

HE was also

Walking on Water

&

Healing the Blind Man

&

Turning Water into Wine

&

Teaching the Sermon on the Mount

&

Calming the Sea

While

Eating HIS Last Supper

Hmm...

But

JESUS

was

Always Present~

even on the cross

because

HE was thinking about you and I

or

HE would have never got on the cross

So that

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

MULTITASKED while being with JESUS?

If you have

you wouldn't be able to

MULTITASKING

very long 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"

even in the Presence of JESUS

until their eyes met the moment

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,

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)

Hmm.

Lesson learned in 2019

for

MULTITASKING

me & possibly

MULTITASKING

you.

Let's do the most important first

&

Invite JESUS into our

MULTITASKING Mess

because

HE is always in the moment

to take us

from doing the many

to

doing the one thing that

"... is better and will not be taken away from"

you or I

so that we will get all that we need to get done~

One thing at a time

Moment by Moment

while enjoying every moment of it.

You are only one step away.

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