Cut the But….



In Chapter 16 of The Best Yes, Lysa TerKeurst talks about things that keep us from saying our Best Yes. And in stressful situations sometimes we don't say our Best Yes because we panic. We don't understand what's happening, therefore, we don't trust God. And so, we allow the fear of our failures to consume us.
Trusting God doesn't mean we won't ever question Him, because surely we will. And guys, sometimes in my process of learning to trust God through it all, I have a lot of "buts."
But God, what about this …
But God, what about that …
But God, but God, but God …

Lysa shares this in Chapter 16 about all our "buts"…
Every time I say I am a child of God, I have to remove the but and instead use the word therefore to usher God's promise into my reality. We must cut the but!
CUT THE BUT.

Lysa goes on to share in this section of the book how she has turned all her "buts" into God promises. Promises build trust. And God offers a lot of promises for you and I to trust Him with.
To Trust Him with Eternity (John 14:6)
Trust Him with Today (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Trust Him with Tomorrow (Jeremiah 29:11)

Trust Him with Your "But" (Romans 8:28)
Take some time to look up these verses and study them. Let the hope they offer help build trust with God through every situation you are facing today.
Cut the but and trust.
