The Oostport Alleyway in Pella may be getting a much-needed facelift soon – City Administrator Mike Nardini says the City council began looking at plans to renovate the historic downtown location.  Nardini says extensive work needs to be done to update the infrastructure underneath the alley. The council is also considering a brick overlay as part of plans for a back-to-brick streetscape project along Franklin Street in 2019 and 2020.  The project is expected to cost about $1 million dollars.

If you’re coming into Pella on Highway G-28 and Washington Streets, slow down!  That’s the word from the Pella police department as as construction ramps up at the expansion of turn lanes at one of Pella’s busiest intersections.  Work crews at the site have complained to the city council about excessive speeding at the location; The Pella Police Department and Public Works Department are working on additional enforcement or signage in the area for the speed zone that is 35 miles per hour. Buyert says they want to expand the turn lanes without having to close any portion of Washington Street from West 16th to West 15th.

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.
