A little more than 45 years have passed since Annie Robertson came to Pella as a foreign exchange student from South Africa. She’ll return to Pella this weekend for the 1973 class reunion.  Robertson said the town and the people she met here in 1972 forever filled her heart, adding that Her host family, Bob and Nan Froelich and Heidi(Froelich) Slinkman, opened their homes and their hearts to her.  Robertson attended a Catholic convent school in South Africa. When she came to Pella, she attended sports games she hadn’t seen in her home country, such as basketball or American football; she also didn’t have to wear a school uniform and found it interesting that Physical Education was a class.  Robertson said she is looking forward to reconnecting with her classmates and seeing how Pella has changed.

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.”
