Superintendent of the Pella Community School District Greg Ebeling has been named the 2017-18 Iowa Superintendent of the Year by the School Administrators of Iowa.  SAI Executive Director Roark Horn said, “Greg exemplifies what all school superintendents aspire to be: a caring, compassionate leader who is able to motivate and inspire others through his excellent decision-making and personal modeling.”  Ebeling says he is humbled by the recognition; he was nominated by his peers and selected for the award by a committee of Iowa superintendents. 

Could drought in South Central Iowa finally be coming to an end?  Much needed rain blanketed the area last night – Knoxville picked up nearly and inch and a quarter of rain, Pella just over three quarters of an inch, and folks near Bussey officially registered almost three and a half inches!  Increased chances of multiple showers are in place all day Thursday and Friday; another 2-3″ of rainfall is in the forecast by Sunday morning, with locally higher amounts possible.

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.
