The Knoxville High School was a sea of pink this past Saturday as it hosted the 10th annual Coaches vs. Cancer fundraising event.  The event began in the morning and featured alumni basketball games, a silent auction and a survivor’s ceremony held between the varsity basketball games with Chariton. During the survivors ceremony, organizers of the Knoxville Cancer Relay donated a large check to Coaches vs Cancer which totaled a stunning $23,501.67  With the donations from Saturday, the Knoxville Coaches vs Cancer event looks to easily hit its goal of $57,000, which would top over $500,000 donated in the past ten years.

An Ottumwa non-profit serving people with disabilities says it is being crushed by the privitization of Medicaid.  Tenco Industries serves over 300 people with disabilities in the Ottumwa area; Dr. Kent Walker, a physician and Tenco board member, said when the state ran the Medicaid program, only 10 percent of their claims were rejected.  Under the new system, only 50% of claims for December have been processed, and 90% of those processed have been rejected.  Governor Kim Reynolds has promised Tenco she is personally working to fix the problem for the organization and overhaul the process in general.

What to do with a Troubled Heart
Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Psalm 25:17

There is no greater answer for our troubles than to have a conversation with our Lord. Not a one-sided conversation but truly enter a time of listening. Often, we want to share our anguish but how regularly do we want to hear feedback. This prayer takes more than sharing our troubles for it takes waiting in His presence and receiving instruction.

We all have a trusted friend we share the troubles of our heart with but what if we looked towards God as a trusted friend and confidant. He is ready to hear from us and will help us as our friend with the problems we carry.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

He calls us his friends and His desire is to sit with us in our troubles and anguish. His friendship is motivated by love for us for His very essence is love for us. When He approaches our problems, he hears them through love, so I’m not sure why we wait to carry all our difficulties to our friend.
