As the holiday approaches, THRIVE Knoxville is finalizing preparations for the first annual 4th of July on the Square celebration in downtown Knoxville.  Pastor Brent Hanna with THRIVE says the theme is about keeping the community in Knoxville together; in previous years everyone in town had to go elsewhere if they wanted to participate in activities on the 4th of July. The day includes a flag raising ceremony beginning at 7:45 am in the city parking lot, with the Knoxville Police Department Freedom 5K to follow at 8am along with a pancake breakfast. Kids are encouraged to decorate their bikes for a parade beginning at noon, follwed by a best burger contest beginning at 1pm, and a dodgeball tournament, with live music and games throughout the day.  A fireworks show will take place at the Knoxville Municipal Airport beginning at dusk.

As several major road construction projects on Highway S45 and Highway T25 in Marion County wrap up, the Marion County Road Department will soon begin their county-wide projects of pavement marking and placing seal coat.  Marion County Engineer Tyler Christiansays the seal coat projects will focus on subdivisions and townships, while the pavement markings will be on all centerline paved roads. The projects are expected to last several weeks until completion, and will be hard to pinpoint when and where the construction will take place.

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.”
