BUT be transformed (Romans 12:2)

 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, BUT be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:2
Do you want to know God's what pleases God, His perfect will for you? There is only one way renew your mind by spending time in His word and then thinking and acting on it. We are in this world not of this world.

BUT my words (Matthew24:25)

Heaven and earth will disappear,
BUT my words will never disappear.
Matthew 24:25
I encourage you to memorize God's word. So that no matter what you are going through or what may come of this place we call home you have His word with in you. Don't say you can't. I said the same thing for years. I could memorize some of the traditional verses BUT felt I couldn't remember the longer ones. Then when I became a flight attendant and memorized all the boarding and safety announcement and I thought 'oops, I guess I can.".  
 I began memorizing the 1st Chapter of James and  I am almost on to chapter 2.

BUT one thing I do (Phillippians 3:13)

Brothers and sisters,
I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.
BUT one thing I do:
Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
Philippians 3:13
Far to often we allow our past hurts or hangups to handicap us from a great future.
We must strain (to make a strenuous or unusually great effort:) to see the great things God has planned for our future.

BUT shows favor to the humble (1 Peter 5:5)

In the same way, you who are younger,
submit yourselves to your elders.
All of you, clothe yourselves with humility
toward one another, because,
“God opposes the proud
    BUT shows favor to the humble.
1 Peter 5:5
nuf said.

BUT everyone deserted me (2 Timothy 4:16-17)

At my first defense, no one came to my support,
BUT everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them.
But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength,
so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it.
2 Timothy 4:16-17
This verse has so many gems---- No matter what you are going through- or how lonely you feed God is standing by your side. Those few words 'may it not be held against them'- show the true heart of this believer-
