Bible Verses For The College Student In Need
National Presbyterian Church

For the average college student, these years of our lives are fun, but there is no shortage of chaos, sadness, stress, and anger. As followers of Christ, we can turn to the Bible, to the book that God had written for all his children, past, present and future. In this book are his words to us, reminders to have faith, to be strong, to stay calm, to trust. God presents us with the opportunity to live our lives, to grow and develop, and honor him while we do so. In the pages of the Bible, God reminds us of these things, sending us a message to turn to when we find ourselves in need. God has handed us his word in a book we can hold forever. What do you need to hear?

When you need strength
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." - Isaiah 40:31
When you need reassurance
"The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom should I be afraid?" - Psalm 27:1

"For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you 'Do not fear; I will help you.'" - Isaiah 41:13
When you need peace
"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 hear, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." - Matthew 11: 28-30

"I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world." - John 16:33
When you need guidance
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." - Proverbs 3:5-6

"The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." - Isaiah 58:11
When you need hope
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11

"In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever." - Daniel 2:44
When you need consistency
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." - James 1:17

"In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. But you remain the same, and your years will never end." - Psalm 102:25-27
When you need forgiveness
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all righteousness." - 1 John 1:9

"For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." - Colossians 1:13-14
When you need healing
"Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave." - Psalm 107:19-20

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." - Revelation 21:4
When you need love
"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - is is by grace you have been saved." - Ephesians 2:4-5

"The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing." - Zephaniah 3:17

It doesn't end here either. There are thousands of words written in red in the pages of the Bible, words from God reminding us that He can bring us strength, reassurance, peace, guidance, hope, consistency, forgiveness, healing, love and so much more. Whatever you need, whatever you're searching for, God will provide for you as he has promised.

You just need to know where to look.

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.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
