The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is thankful for the boater who saved numerous lives at a drowning incident at Lake Red Rock Friday.  Lt. Brian Bigaouette with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office says a man from south central Iowa, who does not want to be identified, leaped into action while on his boat downstream from the Red Rock Dam after a family visiting the lake found themselves under duress just off the shore.  Bigaouette says the man’s action saved many lives, although the day remains tragic due to the death of Cha Charles Lee, 42, of St. Paul, MN, who attempted to save his seven-year-old niece from drowning. Bigaouette adds that the girl was wading in waist-deep water, and stepped into a drop-off, where the currents caught her. Family members trying to rescue her stepped in as well.  He says the Marion County Sheriff’s Office is also thankful for the efforts of rescue crews from Pella, Knoxville, and Pleasantville, who spent nearly two hours searching for Lee.  The girl was last known to be Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines in stable condition, and is expected to recover.

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.”
