Due to rising lake levels the South Overlook Boat Ramp and Volksweg Trail near the Red Rock Marina have been closed.  Whitebreast Beach has now been closed as well. Parking at the Marina Cove is very limited due to the high lake level. There is a moderate amount of floating debris in the lake, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reminds everyone to use caution while boating.  Today, the levels have risen to above 761 feet above sea level and are expected to crest at 767 feet by the middle of this month. Several roads have been closed in areas around the lake as well due to flooding.

Chair of the Pella 4th of July Committee Paul Kingma says celebrations begin in the morning downtown and at Caldwell Park, and continue through the evening’s fireworks display. Kingma says spots are open for the annual parade, and registration continues through the start of the parade on the 4th.

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.”

Today in the Workplace
How is your attitude towards the troubles of life? Surrender control today and find the joy of the Lord.
