Managing multitasking through journaling

A lifestyle of prayer and dedication

Colossians 3:23
Do your work willingly,
as though you were
serving the Lord himself

In today’s busy lifestyle we could easily lose direction and found ourselves tangled in various activities. We sometimes find ourselves in the habit of multitasking, trying to handle more in a limited timeframe.

What is multitasking ?

Exactly what it says! It is the ability to perform more than one task at the same time.

Multitasking vs Journaling

I love to multitask due to my busy schedule, but it’s exhausting. It makes me moody, because of a load of activities to do in such a restricted time as I also want to take time to relax. When I started prayer journaling, it strangely affected my day to day activities. Why? I prayed and started to trust God for anything.

Then I realized that I was able to discover valuable times at hand to do bits and pieces, and at the end of my week, there is less to do.

How prayer journaling influences my multitasking skills.

  • My thoughts became organized.
  • It creates a sound mind
  • It teaches us to strategize effectively to handle tasks.
  • Through prayer journaling, I present my days and week unto God and seek His guidance and blessing.
  • I started living a life of dependency on God through journaling. I simply ask for more grace.
Ask and it will be given to you; 
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will
be opened to you.
Matthew 7:7
  • I am disciplining my thoughts through prayer and align it with the word of God.
  • Planning becomes a natural skill.
  • Productivity during multitasking is possible.
  • It teaches me to focus on quality, not quantity
Phillipians 4 :13
  • The peace of God enters my life and make room for more activities to finish.
  • The Holy Spirit of God helps me to responsibly group my tasks and to scale down the list.
  • The everyday activities are becoming an act of worship, as it should be.

I find multitasking unavoidable because of my lifestyle and circumstances. It used to make me feel unproductive and worn out. Since I started prayer journaling, it changed not only my spiritual walk with God but also my ordinary daily activities.

  1. I don’t necessarily do any journaling, but I learned to put my life in God’s hands…sometimes physically pushing my cares away from me and onto Him. It’s also a form of meditation…
    When life started getting stressful, I was wanting too much control, or trying to control too much. Even now, with the Covid, I know things will work out the way they’re supposed to…even though I feel like crying sometimes.

    1. You are not alone. ❤️ Especially during this time of Covid, I am so grateful to remember all of God’s promises in His Living Word and that He loves and cares for each and everyone one of us. ☺️ I love the image of physically pushing my cares away. Thank you for sharing that. Blessings 🍁
