A group of individuals from Pella have come together to form a coalition with the objective of increasing awareness of drug and alcohol use among area teens.  Tricia Van Zee says the Pella Youth Coalition is a partnership consisting of parents, the Pella Police Department, students and staff from both Pella Community and Pella Christian Schools, and community resource groups. When asked Van Zee said risky behavior choices happen in isolation and in silence, and that in Pella our ‘Dutch fronts’ have a tendency to cause young people to be silent and maintain an image.  All concerned residents are invited to the Pella Youth Coalition kick-off event on Wednesday, August 1st from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Vermeer Global Pavilion. Van Zee says the event includes discussions with local EMS personnel and parents, community resource information, and how to proceed in helping curb drug use in the community.

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.”
