Keep Calm and …

January 27th, 2018 · No Comments

Exodus 14:14 (New Living Translation)

The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.

Everyone has their own version of the “Stay Calm and…” saying these days. Here is one from when the people were about to be pushed to their deaths in the Red Sea.

So we have…

Keep Calm

and

Let the Lord fill-in-the-blank

What goes in the blank? Here are a few I list at this moment:

  • Guide this meeting
  • Tell me what to see to what’s-his-name
  • Reduce this fever
  • Grant me rest
  • Rid me of these nightmares
  • Find relief from this constant pain
  • Give me peace

The list could go on for quite a while.
