BUT is also overflowig (2 Corinthians 9:12)

 This service that you perform is not only
supplying the needs of the Lord’s people
BUT is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
2 Corinthians 9:12
When we serve others it is an automatic thanks to God. With that in mind go out and intentionally serve someone today.

BUT on God (2 Corinthians 1:9)

 Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death.
BUT this happened that we might not rely on ourselves 
BUT on God, who raises the dead.
2 Corinthians 1:9
I can't imagine feeling like I have been sentenced to death... BUT I have been very discouraged from time to time and this verse is so encouraging.
 Look up not in God is there waiting for you to rely on Him.

BUT I will sing of your strength (Psalm 59:16)

But I will sing of your strength,
    in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
    my refuge in times of trouble.

Psalm 59:16

God is so good and gives us exactly what we need, when we need it. I have spent the last 5 days caring for my husband who had surgery. He has been a fantastic patient, BUT it is still so hard to not see him as his normal busy self. 
I so needed strength to make it through another day this morning!

BUT God did say (Genesis 3:2-3)

The woman said to the serpent,
“We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 
BUT God did say,
‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ”
Genesis 3:2-3 NIV
It seems we all think Eve was the cause of all bad things. BUT what would you have done in this situation? It is easy to say "No way, if God himself told me something I would have listened" Well I challenge you today, what has God told you? Are you listening? will you be deceived by the master of this world?

BUT encourage one another (Hebrews 10:25)

Not giving up meeting together, 
as some are in the habit of doing, 
BUT encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:25
There is something to be said about going to church and being around other believers.
 NO it does not make you a christian BUT it can encourage you and help you during the ups and downs of life.

BUT has crossed over (John 5:24)

 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be judged BUT has crossed over from death to life.
John 5:24
The only thing stopping any one from eternal life is belief.

BUT go and learn (Matthew 9:13)

BUT go and learn what this means:
 ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ 
For I have not come to call the righteous, BUT sinners.”
Matthew 9:13
These words were spoken by Jesus when He was questioned as to why he was having dinner with a tax collector.  Jesus came to reach people who need mercy are you reaching out to them as well or do you find yourself judging them?
