15 Bible Verses For Anyone Carrying A Burden That Seems Too Big
Megan Coltharp

In your twenties, most of life is completely unexpected. What will you eat for dinner? How long can you survive on $0.30? When's the next time you'll get to sleep?

Let's just admit it -- college is hard and we are all just trying to do the best we can.

Every now and then, it seems like God has decided to give us a full load. He never gives us more than we can bear, but Lord it sure seems like it is unbearable sometimes.

Here are fifteen bible verses for anyone who feels like the burden is too great right now:

1. For nothing will be impossible with God. - Luke 1:37

2. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Phillippians 4:13
3. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. - Proverbs 3:5
4. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. - Philippians 4:6
5. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. - Romans 8:28
6. But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. - Jeremiah 17:7
7. When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. - Psalm 56:3
8. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this. - Psalm 37:59.
9. In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. - Psalm 25:11
10. What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? - Romans 8:31
11. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. - 1 Peter 5:7
12. Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? - Matthew 6:27
13. Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. - Proverbs 12:25
14. I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. - Psalm 34:4
15. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. - Isaiah 40:29

No matter what burden in your life seems too big to carry, put your trust in God. No matter what is happening, "When you go through deep waters, He will be with you" (Isaiah 43:2).

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.
