But God

Don’t you hate a whiner!


“But Mom, all the kids are going.”


“But Dad, I’ve already spent my allowance.”


“But, you promised to keep it a secret.”


“But, I thought I had unlimited credit.”


“But, I’m too old to change my ways.”


“But, what I do is nobody else’s business.”


Is that my voice I hear? Did I say or think that?


Joseph said, “But God.”


Now that is an all together different story.


He was not a whiner; he was a winner.


“But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God (Genesis 45:7-8a NIV).”


Joseph was not a whiner; he was a doer.


“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives (Genesis 50:20 NIV).”


God is in control, even of if’s and’s or buts!
