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.

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.”
