But

An English teacher once taught never to use the word “but”.  She said whatever positive thing you could say would be counteracted if you added “but” and said anything else.  I would hold there is one exception.  When you make a statement, either positive or negative and say “but God”, you know you are going to end up positive, because God trumps everything—all the time.

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the Lord of Hosts.”  Zechariah 4:6
