The word BUT is defined and used to introduce something contrasting with what has already been mentioned. In this Blog I enjoy discovering how God uses the word BUT to clarify and set us straight. My hope is that you will read the passage and consider the thoughts added and then add you own thoughts or challenges.

BUT... the Lord rises upon you (Isaiah 60)
Arise, shine, for your light has come. Darkness covers the earth,
BUT THE LORD rises upon you, and his glory appears over you. Isaiah 60
As I spent me first day as a flight attendant I met a girl who was going to Alaska and she talked about growing up there and how hard the winters were because there was only an hour or two of daylight. It is comforting to know that darkness may cover the earth BUT The Lord rises up!
