10 Bible Verses For The Anxious

As a young adult, the goal is to simply find yourself amongst the chaos. These particular chaotic segments include school, work, hobbies, and relationship, which often result in anxious occurrences. Believe me, when I say, as a twenty-year-old girl, I have been through all too many of these. More often than none, my anxiety attacks result in a racing heart rate, inability to catch my breath, unclear thoughts, stress-induced headaches, meltdowns, you name it. While none of it has been easy to endure, I have access to a gateway to get me through it: Jesus. He has provided me with an explainable peace quite often, allowing my anxious soul to taper down. His word speaks the truth on the topic of anxiety, and today, I present you with ten bible verses in which I advise all to seek comfort in.

1. For whenever you feel like you cannot do it on your own:

Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make your paths straight.”

2. For whenever you feel burdened:

Matthew 11:28-30

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

3. For whenever you need comfort:

Psalm 23:4

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

4. For whenever you feel afraid:

Psalm 56:3

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”

5. For whenever you need peace of mind:

2 Thessalonians 3:16

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”

6. For whenever anxiety overwhelms you:

Philippians 4:6-7

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

7. For whenever thoughts of the future creep up:

Matthew 6:34

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

8. For whenever you feel discouraged:

Isaiah 35:4

“Tell everyone who is discouraged, be strong and do not be afraid! God is coming to your rescue…”

9. For whenever life gets ahead of you:

Luke 12:22-26

“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?”

10. For whenever you doubt yourself:

Galatians 6:9

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

With all being said, we have no reason to worry about the chaos that occurs in our lives. Our times of anxiety should not be an excuse to stop seeking Jesus. For it is in Him, we find an unexplainable peace to cope with these crutches. Yes, we can find comfort in other things, however, these are temporary. Things of the world cannot replace what we are able to find above, which is eternal. Do not ever forget: Jesus is always here for you, no matter how heavy the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Hang in there, my friend, he has got this in control.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
