Amos 4:13

So.... I was going to go into this long diatribe of how I've had a crummy week, but I decided against it. So suffice it to say, I was having a crummy week, and having an even crummier time last night paying bills (plumbers make a lot of money). I was thinking of how crummy everything was, and wondering "why was I in the place in life that I am now" (btw, I'm totally cool with where I am in life)? That's when I opened up one of my little plastic file boxes to search for the auto insurance file or the umbrella policy file or something, when I saw a slip of paper with the verse Amos 4:13 written on it, which I had placed in that file box five months ago.
"He is here: the One who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals His thoughts to man, the One who makes the dawn out of darkness and strides on the heights of the earth. Yahweh, the God of Hosts, is His name."
So, why am I at the place in life that I am right now? Not real sure, but God is here. Who am I to argue?
Ok, so I probably saved that slip of paper because it had someone's phone number on it, but that verse was totally what I needed last night. Oh, I blurred out the last part of Lane & Kate's phone number, so don't try to call them - their kids are probably sleeping.
