What to Do When We Say, “Yes, but God…”

This week I haven’t had it within me to say yes to God and His promises. Where I should have shouted a resounding yes, I’ve defiantly mumbled a yes but. Do you know that feeling? When you’re overwhelmed, hurt, or can’t catch your breath, hundreds of reasons why this promise doesn’t apply to you race through your mind, and every fiber of your being screams YES, BUT.

But what if you are the person who pulls out in front of someone else?  Maybe you were distracted by the kids in the backseat.  Maybe you just weren’t paying attention.  At that point you would want grace from others, right? I’ve been in this situation many times, and it made me…
