Multiple tornado warnings were issued in Marion County minutes after events for Tulip Time in Pella were cancelled due to inclement weather Thursday evening.  Four different warnings impacting northern Marion County took place between 7:25 and 8:30pm.  Tornado touchdowns were spotted near Swan, Prairie City, Lake Red Rock, and Hartford, according to trained weather spotters and the National Weather Service. Heavy rainfall fell throughout some of the warned areas as well.

The Knoxville Hospital’s ER has a new life-saving tool at its disposal – the LUCAS 3 Chest Compression System.  The LUCAS device provides mechanical chest compressions at a rate and depth consistent with current American Heart Association guidelines for CPR. KHC Emergency Department Coordinator Kristina Morgan says this device not only provides a consistent way to perform CPR, but also lessens the burden on the staff , as CPR is a physically demanding task that often distracts nurses and EMS staff from performing other life-saving actions. The device was provided at no cost thanks to a grant funded by the Helmsley Family Trust.

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.
