“keep calm and carry on”

something about this phrase has never set right with me

can’t put my finger on it

remaining calm is always  good when facing distressing situations

but it’s the self-reliance that fails

maybe that’s it


new variations are popping up everywhere –

keep calm and . . .

 . . . go shopping

. . . eat chocolate

 . . . pretend everything’s ok

the world’s answer to handling stress


but when your world turns upside down

and life gets really hard

none of these sayings offer comfort

none of them can calm you as the storm rages and surrounds


only these words

that my sweet, wise mother shared with me recently –

“The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” – Zephaniah 3:17

keep calm

How do we keep calm?

He will quiet you with His love.

How do we carry on?

The Lord God is with you . . 

we never walk alone


He calms

He saves

He delights

He loves

He forgives
