Our world has been pretty sad and scary lately. There are not many news stories or things on social media that aren't related to the sad or scary things happening. So here are some bible verses and religious quotes that will (hopefully) provide you with some comfort and positive feelings.


1. “I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” - Ephesians 4:1-2


Live up to God's plan for your life.

2. We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.

This quote is very reassuring to me. No matter what I do, God still loves me more than I could know.

3. We rise by lifting others.

This is just a good one too.

4. Lord, let them see you in me.

The most beautiful thing is when you can see God through the people around you. Pray that God will use you to show others his goodness.

5. Until God opens the next door for you, praise him in the hallway.

I really just love this one.

6. “When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” - Psalm 61:2

Always turn to God in times of trouble.

7. “Here I am, send me.” -Isaiah 6:8

Allow God to send you where he needs to in your life.

8. “And if not, He is still good.” -Daniel 3:18

Even if God's answer to your prayer is not what you'd hope, he is still good. God is good all the time and no matter what happens in your life.

9. “He must become greater, I must become less.” - John 3:30

Focus on the spiritual things and not material things. Make God more important than the other things in your life.

10. “Count it all Joy.” - James 1:2

Take everything as an opportunity for growth. You can learn from both the good and the bad.

11. “You do not understand what I am doing now, but soon you will.” - John 13:7

God's plan is better than yours. You are not meant to understand what is going on with his plan all the time. Just trust that whatever is going on is for the best.

12. “When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.” - Isaiah 43:2

Remember that God is always there and will be with you no matter what happens in your life.

13. You cannot save people, you can just love them.

This is a good quote for the current troubles with Catholicism and gay marriage etc. Many people think they can "save" others by attacking them or trying to change them but that is not realistic at all. It is also not morally ok. The only thing people can do in those situations is love and pray for the people they disagree with.

14. “Rejoice in hope. Be patient in tribulation. Be constant in prayer.” - Romans 12:12

Know that God is always there. Talk to him not only in times of trouble but also in good times. Be patient with his planning in your life.

15. “Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.” - Esther 4:14


Use whatever negative situation you are in as an opportunity to grow from it and really stand up to the challenge.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.
268414

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

To The Christian Girl Against Feminism, Religion Isn't An Excuse Not To Fight For Equality

Religion is not an excuse to not fight for feminism.

When I first read the article "I'm A Christian Girl And I'm Not A Feminist..." I thought it had to be a joke. Unfortunately, it was a sad reality.

I am a privileged white female. I came from a middle-class family with a law-enforcement father. I still am smart enough to realize we NEED intersectional, no strings attached, unconditional feminism. Anyone who disagrees is just wrong. In this case, the author is trying to base her outdated sexist beliefs on the Bible, and I am appalled.

At first, I thought it was a joke, I genuinely read the title out loud to my father and even he said it had to be a man pretending to be a woman. As I read the article I realized that sadly this is a girl who has had religion corrupt her life.

Religion can be a beautiful thing, it can change lives and give people hope that they need. I have heard countless stories about how finding a god has made people better, and that is incredible. However, using religion to say women don't deserve the same as men is absolutely absurd.

Part of me wants to scream in her face that she can't be ok with being a victim, another part of me wants to throw my hands up and give up on her and like-minded individuals. However, in a time like ours where women are coming so close to being equals, I can't sit down or act irrationally.

So here are the facts:

1. Women who work fulltime only make 77% of men's salaries on average. African American women only make 64 cents per dollar and Latina women only make 56 cents per dollar. Imagine being just as capable and trained just as well but a guy makes more money than you because he has a penis.

2. One in three women around the globe has experienced sexual violence. ONE IN EVERY THREE. YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY SURVIVORS. If women were considered equals that would not be the case.

3. Only 24% of high-level management positions are held by women. That's worldwide. 195 countries. Let that sink in. This isn't because women aren't smart either, 60% of all United States college degrees are awarded to women.

4. Women are not allowed to vote in many places, like Saudi Arabia or the Vatican. Imagine not having the right to vote! YOU GET NO SAY IN ANYTHING.

You can thank women for your right to work, vote, get an education, practice a religion that you chose, a range of professions, windshield wipers, bras, dishwashers, diapers, need I go on?

Women are strong as hell and your misinterpretation of an outdated book does not dimish all of the amazing things women have accomplished and will continue to accomplish.

To quote one bad bitch, "Power's not given to you. You have to take it." — Beyoncé Knowles Carter.

Now ladies let's get into our feminist formation and fight for our rights!
