South-Central Iowa is experiencing extreme drought, but relief may be on the way – that’s the word from the Jeff Johnson, meteorologist in charge  of the National Weather Service Des Moines office, who says  conditions may be favorable for more rainfall throughout most of central Iowa during the next two weeks.  While the weather may be warmer than normal, Johnson says in the next 8 to 14 days there will also be more chances for precipitation. However, he says long-term the drought may stay in place as fall and winter tend to be drier times of the year.

A fifth-grade teacher from Pella has been named the state’s History Teacher of the Year and Iowa Council for the Social Studies Elementary Teacher of the Year.  Rebecca Helland teaches at Jefferson Intermediate School and was nominated for both awards. She is also a mentor teacher for Pella Community Schools as part of Iowa’s teacher leadership system. Helland says she aims to engage students by asking questions  worth exploring and give them a broad social studies experience in the classroom.  Her favorite moments?  Helland says she loves when students are leading the discussion in her classroom.

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.”
