The Knoxville Public Library is having a very Merry Christmas thanks to a generous donation from Iowa State Savings Bank – on Wednesday the organization presented the library with a check for $15,000 for their capital campaign expansion project.  David Hoke, Vice President of Marketing for the bank, presented the check to members of the campaign; with a previous gift of $10,000 the bank has now given $25,000 towards the project.  Library Director Roslin Thompson says she’s thankful for the bank’s strong support of the community.

This past Wednesday the Oskaloosa Police Department welcomed its newest member of the force; at the Dec. 18 Oskaloosa City Council meeting, Mayor David Krutzfeldt swore in new Police Officer Riley Calhoun.  He returns to Mahaska County after working for the Marion County Sheriff’s Department for nearly a year.  Calhoun graduated from Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont High School in 2012 and joined the Army National Guard that fall, where he still serves.  He attended Indian Hills Community College and graduated with an associates degree in applied science in criminal justice in 2016.  After graduating from the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy in April 2017 Calhoun began patrolling in Marion County.

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.”
