What do you do when you see those little icons and pop-up messages that appear in the system tray, indicating there is a new software update available for you to download and install? Most people find such notifications and the process of installing new software updates insignificant and disrupting.
The truth is, people ignore such notifications for various reasons, such as, ‘Do I really need to install this update?’, ‘My computer is working just fine, I don’t think this update is for me!’, ‘I don’t have time to reboot my computer’, etc. If you are accustomed to dismissing those update notifications, you need to reconsider that practice. More especially, relating the updates to our personal lives.
Our way of Thinking, Attitude, Mentality, Psych and Behaviorism is likened to the process of Applying and downloading software updates, and is one of the most important things we can do to improve the quality of our lifestyle. In fact, if we don’t do it, we’re very likely going to get some kind of malware in our life and even get hijacked by the storms of life.
Sensory overload as related to our mindset is the process of distress in accepting and downloading our blessings!
So, as we have all come to experience the power of the resurrection week, it is now time to acknowledge that the stone of hindrance or blockage has been rolled away. It is time to embrace the settlement of the mission. Let’s stop looking down at that problem, again – the stone has been lifted away. There’s a new sense of settlement and completion once we’re upgraded. We should be like a new and improved software, a different malware, a superb operating system. Every virus crowding our mindset – should by now be SHUT DOWN! Allowing the new and improved updates to download in our lives…
Many people find the process of applying software updates to be highly annoying and disruptive. This frustration is understandable. Like our lifestyle, applying updates can consume a fair amount of bandwidth as well as slowing us down, but that’s just a learning process for us to reconnect back to God!
To prevent sensory overload: We need Avoidance and Setting limits. Creating a more quiet and orderly environment, restricting the amount of time spent on various activities that crowds and corrupts our “operating system” – Our mindset!
Today, I am encouraging someone to go ahead and click that “Download updates or Installing updates” messages in their life! It can sometimes be tedious, but the advantages you get from the updates are certainly worth it. The good news is you don’t even need to pay for it! It’s free and all paid for! All you need to do is simply grant your consent when asked, by just the click of a button. Be upgraded and be on fire for God!
May God Help Us All!

Change is the only constant, most especially in this extremely dynamic age we live in. Just as you pointed out with the tech lingo, with the little knowledge I have in that realm when a system is overloaded it crashes. In God’s scheme of things “life” man was not made to overload and crash, He says we should cast our burdens on him and He will give us rest. We need to focus on Him not our problems. When Peter took his eyes of Jesus he began to sink, David in the Valley of Elah could already see beyond Goliath and even beyond the hills ahead. I am keying into this post and ready for a new and improved “me” in all facets of my existence and believing as I should that “He paid it all on the Cross at Calvary”. Thanks Anthonia, keep on challenging us with thoughts as deep and relevant as this,
Absolutely right! overloading of the mind leads to crashing, which in the real world is Depression. Very good perspective on how we need to re-charge, update and download what’s needed to keep us moving on in life. Acknowledgment and acceptance of Christ is the constant update. Thanks Kaylaw.
Yinka, sincerely, I am impressed. I felt a disclosure when I read this post after I received the mail alert of its incoming. To think that this post came in a familiar sense with the inspiration I received during my meditation earlier in the morning, is a bewildering astonishment especially as I recalled that I felt the same way in the last I commented – Like you could divine my premeditations. Just imagine it: Ge. 29:8 And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well’s mouth; then we water the sheep… 29:10 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother. Can you now figure what I mean? -“…that the stone of hinderance or blockage has been rolled away”. There is a living witness opened in your heart to establish the dialogue of holy thoughts – You are full of grace! I have always known, albinitio, that you are about something special. The Lord is with you. The Help, in you, I have found; I will keep moving forward with Yinka! Regards.
