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.

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.”
