Police found a 2-year old boy walking alone near Vermeer Road and East 6th Street earlier this morning.  Thankfully the child was soon reunited with his family and the police department thanked the community for their help.

The Knoxville VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) participated in the eighth annual nationwide VA 2K walk today from 10am to 12pm to raise awareness for homeless veterans.  This was the second year the Knoxville VA CBOC participated in the event, which also serves as a way to donate much needed health items to veterans in need. 

Standing water and electricity don’t mix, but that’s precisely what the city found when inspecting electrical access at Bridge View Center.  City Engineer Dwight Dohlman said the city needs to install “new conduit, conductors, and receptacles to replace the failed electrical system.”  The fix will route the power distribution system through ceiling trusses instead of the floor where water can seep in.

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.
