6 Inspirational Bible Verses For The Struggling College Student

6 Inspirational Bible Verses For The Struggling College Student

His word will always provide peace.

Aaron Burden

We all need a boost of encouragement and love sometimes and what better place to find that than The Bible? I've put together a list of the Bible verses that provide encouragement, love, comfort, and anything else you may need along the way.

1. "And I am with you always, till the very end of the age." Matthew 28:20

There is nothing more comforting than knowing you are never alone and this verse provides that warmth of constantly being aware of his presence. Sometimes just being reminded that He is there is enough.

2. "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

As well as always being with you, God will help you grow and encourage you to enhance yourself through all areas of your life.

3. "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

The one thing God can provide us that nothing else can and that is peace. Things of the world cannot give us ultimate peace but God can every day through his word.

4. "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1

Troubling times come often in our lives and many times we are not sure how to deal with it. Reminding ourselves that we can always turn to God in our trials can be helpful enough.

5. "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

The Bible tells us not to worry about anything even though that is the hardest thing we can do. In life, we constantly stress about many things and reading this verse and casting all of your problems on him will create peace and will relieve your stress.

6. "It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees." Psalm 119: 71

Some of the hardest trials we face are stepping stones in our relationship with God. He uses our struggles so that we may turn to him instead of away from him.

The Bible can provide us with many verses to help us when we are stuck in a tough spot or need to make a decision. God's word is designed to guide us and assist in our ever-growing relationship with him. He loves us and wants to succeed-even through the hardest times. I hope these verses provided you with some peace along the way. Always remember that God is with you and he always will be. There is always a plan, even if it does not seem like it, and the reasoning may not be understandable but you have to trust his plan.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
