A truck driver called the Mahaska County 911 Center at 2:15 pm on Tuesday afternoon, stating he observed a person jump off the bridge into the South Skunk River along Highway 92.  Mahaska County deputies were on scene within minutes where they began the search for the individual.  Footprint evidence on the bridge that indicated there were at least two people on the bridge.  Mahaska County Sheriff Russ Van Renterghem said that deputies couldn’t find any evidence of where those individuals may have gotten out of the river. There were no vehicles or bicycles, or anything else around.  An extensive search, which included numerous boats and a helicopter from Mercy Medical Center, came up empty handed – thankfully Van Renterghem reports that his department has spoken to a 17-year-old male who is the one that jumped off the bridge and then swam safely back to shore.

A vehicle fire shortened Dale Ozinga’s lunch Tuesday. Luckily, the fire was put out quickly.  Ozinga was eating a sandwich in his truck, parked near Caldwell Park, when he heard something come from his hood. He got out of his truck to investigate, but couldn’t open the hood. As soon as he saw smoke, he left the truck as quickly as he could, he said.  The front half of his truck caught on fire for a brief period of time before the Pella Fire Department swiftly put it out. The cause of the fire is unknown, and thankfully no one was injured.

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.”
