Thursdays in Pella returns to the downtown square this evening after a hiatus for the Independence Day holiday.  The theme is BAM! Books, Arts and Music!, with activities including bubble art, water balloon painting, coloring books, musical chairs, playdoh, and a book swap. Entertainment includes The Stu Show, a program spreading a Be Kind Be Positive and Read message to all ages, followed by the Barbershop Quartet.

New park equipment for the Knoxville Morning Kiwanis Miracle Playground at Young’s Park is almost fully installed.  Ernie Smith with the Morning Kiwanis says the playground has needed upgrades for a very long time, and is pleased at the community’s support of Kiwanis in their efforts to raise money and secure materials needed for the project. Smith also said that despite all the hard work over the years, it’s all worth it because every time he sees a child having fun on the playground is a reward in itself and the new park will be something Knoxville can treasure for many years to come.

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.”
