    I’m full of “yeah, buts”. It’s true. This is a great post that I need to reread and internalize. I’ll be sharing it with others. Thank you!

      Aren’t we all?! I’m praying God will turn all mine into a confident “yes, Lord!”

      Carri, thanks for stopping by. I think Karissa hit this right on the head. We toil away trying to earn what we never could…it’s the entire reason Jesus came to save us! We’ve gotta learn to accept that we’re accepted as we are.

    It’s hard to get past the “ya, buts” but this post was helpful!

    • Reply Karissa 2017 at 9:56 PM

      Yes, I definitely understand! I think the more we behold the person of Jesus Christ, the easier it becomes! 🙂

    It’s always interesting to see different people’s outlooks on a topic like this. I know of a few people that feel similarly in that they aren’t complete without a God.

      Val, thanks for stopping by to read! The “completeness” or “wholeness” God offers is pretty amazing. Definitely not anything I can come up with in my own brokenness!

    Amen! That you for the reminder that He truly is enough for ANY excuse I might come up with.

    • Reply Karissa 2017 at 10:07 PM

      Bailey, yes! He really is! Praise God!

    I think in this busy world we live it it is important to slow down or even stop for a moment and think what’s really important. Thank you.

    • Reply Karissa 2017 at 10:10 PM

      Amen! I have to continue to remind myself that stopping to sit at the feet of Jesus and marvel at who He is really is “the better thing”. Blessings!

    I didn’t realize how many “Yeah, but” I probably say to myself (and to God)… definitely inspired to be more accountable in allowing God to do the directing!! Thanks for sharing this message, Karissa!
