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.

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.
