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 ands or buts!
