Folks in Texas were recently hit with a flood of water from Hurricane Harvey; now they’re about to get hit by a flood of love thanks to students at Jefferson Intermediate School in Pella.  Teacher Matt Raucsh, a former resident of Dickinson, Texas, says students and staff are sending a “Flood of Love” to a district in Texas, which includes $1,800 raised by the school and dozens of green hearts containing encouraging notes from 4th – 6th graders at the school. 

The Color Blast 5k fun run and walk isn’t the only race this weekend in south central Iowa – the 7th annual “Nana Jana” 5k fun run is also taking place this Saturday at the Dan D Farm five miles south of Knoxville.   Each year runners take part in the event to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer. Creator of the run Dan Dennison says the run started seven years ago after the passing of his wife from ovarian cancer. Dennison says at that time they were doing a corn maze and figured a fun run would be a good way to bring awareness to ovarian cancer. The run begins at 9 a.m. with registration beginning at 8 a.m. The cost is $25 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under.

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.”
