Two people were injured in a single-vehicle crash on Main Street in Peoria late Wednesday.  Numerous agencies from Pella and Mahaska County responded after a white SUV heading northbound left the roadway at the intersection of Main and Cross just after 9 p.m. at a high rate of speed. Mahaska County Sheriff Russ Van Renterghem said the vehicle went up the hill, snapped a utility pole, and came to a rest on its top about 15 yards from the edge of the street. Skid marks were visible at the point in which the SUV veered off the road.  Both occupants inside were injured, including an unidentified male passenger who was transported via helicopter to a Des Moines area hospital with serious injuries. The female driver was transported to Pella Regional Health Center.  The cause is unknown at this time but drugs or alcohol are possibility, based on witness statements to police about the condition of the occupants. The injured male passenger was found outside of the SUV by witnesses, but the sheriff was unsure if the injured man climbed out on his own or was ejected during the rollover.

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.
