Joplin students bring message of hope to Moore elementary schools

MOORE — This week marks “Doomsday” for the millions of computer users who currently have Windows XP.

After Tuesday, Windows no longer supports XP. The end result is that your computer is then unprotected leaving room for a virus to attack.

For some, an easy update is all they need to install to remedy this issue. For those who have an older computer the only option they have is to replace their existing computer or to simply stay off the Internet and then they will be safe.

It’s a pretty big deal — going into cyberspace without any protection at all. It’s like going into a battle where everyone has the most updated weapons and you have absolutely nothing in your hands to protect yourself. It’s worse than little David going against Goliath. It’s more like little David going against a legion of giants.

I’m so grateful in the real world that we are not alone. That God is always there to protect us from things that harm us and most often we never even know how much He intervenes on our behalf.

Sometimes we have the knowledge that God stepped in to help because there is no way things could have turned out so well unless a Mighty Hand took control.

That’s an awesome feeling knowing that He is always there; always ready to step in whenever we need help or protection.

The bottom line? When God’s around, there’s no need to worry, and He’s going to be with us for an eternity.
