The Volksweg Trail is stretching its legs once again as construction kicks off this week – Josh Conrad, Assistant Operations Manager with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, says the expansion includes 2.6 miles from the trailhead at Robert’s Creek west to Cordova Park. A new trailhead with a parking lot is also planned at Cordova.  According to the Marion County Road Department, work begins along G28 on Thursday, May 17th. Little traffic impact is expected, however, there may be slow or turning trucks and equipment associated with the project, and the south shoulder of the road between Roberts Creek & Cordova will be closed, so please use caution if you’re in the area. 

The threat of rain didn’t scare the men and women determined to take to the streets of Ottumwa this past Saturday in the fight against breast cancer.  Over 1,000 participants showed up for the annual Race for the Cure.  Gayla Harrison, an organizer for the event, said numbers for this year’s race were event stronger than in the past when weather was better – she said a public that is passionate about the fight against breast cancer is what makes this event such a success.

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.”
