Pella firefighters fought flames and smoke at 1006 Washington Street early Thursday morning.  Numerous trucks responded at 1:23 a.m. to the house filled with smoke on both floors. Pella Fire Chief Doug Van Gorkom says crews had to do a thorough check of the house due to some unique structuring in the roof setup. The cause is under investigation; No people were injured, but a cat belonging to one of the tenants died.

A line of severe thunderstorms ripped through South Central Iowa yesterday afternoon, bringing heavy rains and high winds with them.  Almost 1.5″ fell in downtown Pella, while Lake Red Rock received just over 1.5″.  More rain is expected later today and overnight.

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.”
