15 Bible Verses To Get You Through A Stressful Week

This week has been tough. I have around a two page list of all the things I need to do before Friday night. I had complete forgotten I've had to write an article this week. I've been balancing tests, homework, office hours, work, my sorority, EVERYTHING. I was finally reminded today that I needed to set aside time to distress and talk to God about my problems and my concerns. After I finally did, I felt so much better. He reminded me that he knows what's going to happen, and basically told me to take a chill pill cause he's in the drivers seat. After that, I realized that there are some times during the day when we can't lock ourselves in a quite room and talk to him. We're continuously surround by people and noise and distractions. Here's a list of 15 Bible verses that you can look back on that will remind you to take a breath and realize who is actually in control.

1. 2 Corinthians 12:10

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2. Luke 1:37

For with God, nothing can be impossible.

3. Philippians 1:6

There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.

4. Proverbs 16:3

Put God in charge of your work,
then what you’ve planned will take place.

5. Jeremiah 29:11

"I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for."

6. Isaiah 41:10

"I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you. Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you."

7. Matthew 11:28-30

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

8. Job 23:10

But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.

9. Psalm 62:6

Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

10. 2 Timothy 4:17

But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength.

11. Exodus 14:14

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.

12. Psalm 91:2

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

13. Proverbs 19:21

Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

14. 1 Samuel 12:16

Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!

15. 1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Although these are verses from the Bible, they are not a substitute for sitting down and talking to God. So remember that no matter how stressed or how worried you are, giving God all your problems is the only thing to do. Have a good and hopefully a stress free week.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
