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.

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.”
