State Representative Greg Heartsill has announced that he will not run for re-election to a fourth term.  Heartsill said after experiencing many changes within his family in recent years and consulting with them, he has decided to shift his focus to his family. Heartsill went on to say that he has enjoyed building relationships on both sides of the aisle, and it was truly an honor to serve as representative.  State Trooper Jon Thorup has declared his intentions to run for the open seat. Thorup says he is running because there are several things that he thinks need to be improved urgently including safety preparedness, the Knoxville VA Campus, and mental health care. Thorup will be at the Marion County Republican Convention tomorrow at the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum should anybody wish to meet and discuss issues.

National Geographic’s Iowa State Bee champion is returning to participate in his final bee this year.  Grant Pedersen, from Cardinal Middle School in Eldon, brought home a victory last spring. George Kuhter, Iowa State Bee’s director, said he definitely remembers Pedersen from last year, saying it was great to see such a confident young man.  National Geographic’s bee is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject and increase public awareness about geography.

You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! Psalm 22:23

There are many things in this world we can admire. There are many famous people we may stargaze over because of all the abilities they have been given. We may soon be finding ourselves praising them and honoring them to the place they get all of our attention. We see them behind the TV screen which grasps a lot of our daily attention. We would instead praise the celebrity or athlete behind the screen than the One who is truly worthy.

This isn’t to make us feel guilty, but it is written to change us. David called out and said for those who fear the Lord, Praise Him. If we admire God, then praise should be a daily heartfelt response. Maybe our hearts have been overtaken by false idols, and there isn’t enough room for fearing God. Could it be, we have allowed to much space to worship idols instead of the One True God?

David called out to the descendants with an an exclamation point behind his statements. He knew there would be other idols trying to compete with the fear of the Lord. We too are descendants of Jacob and like our ancestors, it’s time to honor, revere and praise His name. It could be time to get rid of what’s taking the place of our daily praise! Making praise a regular exercise will conquer the invasion of the idol.
