While northern and central Iowa have faced heavy rains in the past week, southeastern Iowa took a step into severe drought.  The U.S. Drought Monitor’s assessment was released Thursday morning and, for the first time, it showed portions of the area in more than moderate drought conditions. Most of Davis County is now in severe drought, along with significant portions of Wapello, Appanoose and Van Buren counties. There was some irony in the timing. Ottumwa received nearly an inch of rain from storms that hit about the time the new map was released, the most since May 2. A second round between 11 a.m. and noon pushed the total to more than 1.66 inches.

The Greatest Attitude
15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Psalm 31:15
David now proclaims to God that his life is in His hands. This kind of attitude will keep us walking steady without responding negatively to all the evil in the world. This perspective will also keep our heart bent towards God no matter what the cost. David remembers God is in control of not only his life but the very cosmos he is living in.

Many of us struggle through life because of our attitude towards our troubling situations as we grant the circumstances of life permission to guide our attitude. For most, if all threats are gone in life our attitude can remain positive and fortunate. However, the minute we experience an unfortunate occurrence, our attitude can plummet. We have to make daily choices of how we will remain by saying “my times are in your hands.”

It is a matter of choice of how we will or will not be provoked by our troubles. David’s attitude rose above his life-threatening circumstance to realize God is in control. I wonder if he knew deep in his heart, that if the current situation took his life, the battle would be over. God will carry us through all battles of life but only if we allow His involvement. If we choose to dwell on the negative, is there any room for God’s participation in our life? What would happen if we agreed with David and said, “My times are in your hands.”
