One of my favorite teachers addressed multitasking in his newsletter of January 29th, 2012. No matter that we are cocreators, with incredible minds and talent. We have the ability to do many things at once, or so science would tell us. According to Jack Kelley and Psalm 150, there is only one task that counts: Praise the Lord! He knows our purpose here, and when we give Him praise (continually) from our hearts, He leads us to it! Jack Kelley has much insight to share with us in his usual, no nonsense manner. You can read this study of Psalm 150 at the link. Visit Grace Thru Faith as well, for much, much more from Jack Kelley. Grace Thru Faith is a powerful teaching place! Sign up for Jack Kelley's daily newsletter, too. I have and never fail to learn and grow when reading Jack Kelley! He has a deep and sensible understanding of God's plan, and he knows what you can do to partake of it.
Psalm 150, by Jack Kelley:
"...there have been numerous studies done in an attempt to quantify the creative capability of the human mind... Finally the UCLA Brain research Institute put an end to things a few years ago by stating that, “For all practical purposes the creative capability of the human mind is infinite.” "
"It’s been said that if we “put our minds to it” we could become fluent in dozens of languages, master countless skills, and memorize for instant recall all the information in the US Library of Congress. (I can’t imagine even wanting to do that one.)
"That said, research has also uncovered one limitation. At the conscious level, we can only think one thought at a time. Some of us think we’re good at doing two things at once, but if we are it means we’ve mastered the ability to switch our focus from one to the other and back again very quickly. Still, at any given instant we’re only thinking about one of them.
"And that explains why Paul advised us to rejoice even in times of trouble, and to concentrate our thinking on praiseworthy things. (Phil 4:4,8) Somehow he knew that if we did this it would prevent us from falling into a state of despair over our problems."
"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord."
1 Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse.
2 Praise Him for His mighty deeds; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.
3 Praise Him with trumpet sound; Praise Him with harp and lyre.
4 Praise Him with timbrel and dancing; Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.
5 Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 150)
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! (Philippians 4:4)
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)
