A heat advisory is in place today, and another round of heavy rain is possible this weekend.  High temperatures are expected to reach the mid-to-upper 90s this afternoon, with heat index values approaching 110 degrees. Residents are reminded to stay hydrated, take plenty of breaks in shade, and to never leave any children or pets in a parked car for any reason.  The heat is expected to be short lived, as a round of strong thunderstorms is expected to pass through Saturday with a cold front. A slight risk of severe weather is in place throughout the day, with hail, wind, and heavy rain the primary threats.

A bike share program is coming to Pella next week.  Numerous community partners, including the City of Pella Community Services Department, Central College, Iowa Bike and Fitness, and the Pella Wellness Consortium, have partnered together to bring VeoRide to the city, which includes 50 bikes placed throughout the community to use for a small fee. The project started from an idea a group of Central College students had after studying in the sustainability education program.  Kris Van Gent with Iowa Bike saysthe new program will allow anyone with the VeoRide app over the age of 13 to rent bikes for use in the area community, as long as they return the bikes to designated parking areas when finished.

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.”

Today in the Workplace
How is your attitude towards the troubles of life? Surrender control today and find the joy of the Lord.
