I want to share something really incredible with you as a Christian testimony.
A few nights ago, I went to bed and everything was fine on my computer. When I woke up the next morning, yesterday morning, my computer had been hacked, probably because of my creation science site, you know, the pagan hate and hide the truth thingy. I had lost ABSOLUTELY ALL of my files. All of the file folders on my computer were empty, completely empty. I still had the basic programs on my computer like my Coffeecup web building program and my video games (a few really old ones) but they had gone virgin with none of the usage files from before.
I had lost ALL of my creation science site files, notes, everything. My Firefox was barely working, I had lost all of my favorites and pass words for different sites. My Mozilla program was virgin and wouldn't take me anywhere. I couldn't even get on FB and everything they had set up for me to get my account back didn't work so I figured that I had probably lost that account.
Because of my really bad short term memory caused by my illness, I had kept forgetting to set up a restore point on my computer until I just completely forgot about it and even began to think I had started one. (I can only write these essays when God causes me to write them.) So I didn't even have that to help me. I was just royally screwed and it was going to take weeks for me to rebuild my computer back to just where I could continue to write the creation science site.
Also, I had thought that I had backed up my system a few years ago but, with my really bad short term memory, that few years had become five years so I had still lost most of my files for my creation science site because I wrote most of those files on the site in the last five years. But, hey, that was better than nothing so it was a start and I was thankful for that.
I first tried to figure out what damage had been done, checked with my Malwarebytes and there were no residual programs, viruses, or Trojan horses left on my computer. Then I started trying to rebuild my files so I could continue writing the creation science site but my illness caused me to become fatigued and confused so I couldn't get anything to work. I decided to back off, think and pray about it, and decide what to do later, after I had rested and could think well again. Basically, yesterday was a complete nightmare for me with me not being able to get anything done.
Last night, after I went to bed, I thought about it for a while (quite a while, of course), trying to figure out exactly how I would have to rebuild the computer, not being able to get any sleep or rest to work on it today and finally turned it completely over to God by saying a prayer like, "Lord, if you want me to continue to write the creation science site, you have to make it possible for me to rebuild it because I can't do it", and finally went to sleep late this morning, you know, like after 4 am. I had gotten a few hours sleep before that but that was it.
When I turned on the computer this morning to start working on rebuilding my computer, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING was back to the way it was two nights ago, EVERYTHING! I have ALL of my files for all of my programs and everything else. My Firefox works and has all of my favorites and passwords, my Mozilla takes me where I need to go, and I just went to FB with no problems. It is like nothing happened but I know better.
So I immediately went to setup a recovery point and one had already been set up BUT that recovery point WOULD NOT have restored my computer to two nights ago but only to two weeks ago, Dec 27, and I would have lost at least a dozen files just for my creation science site alone that are ALL there. My computer has been completely recovered to two nights ago and God had even undone what I screwed up yesterday you know, trying to fix stuff. Even my video games have been restored back to where they were two nights ago, EVERYTHING!
So God takes care of Carl, God clearly wants me to continue writing this site, and the old man is back in business. Hang on, baby, we are going places and I am going to teach you what God teaches me. Know that God answers prayer. He doesn't always say, "Yes", but when He does, He does it big time.
Compared to God, Satan is a punk.
