Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

1. Isaiah 43:2

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

2. Psalm 37:5

"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust in Him, and He will act."

3. Romans 8:18

"The pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming."

4. Proverbs 31:25

"She is clothed in strength, and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."

5. Joshua 1:9

"Be bold. Be brave. Be courageous."

6. Ecclesiastes 3:1

"There is a time for everything and a reason for every activity under the heavens."

7. Isaiah 41:10

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."

8. Isaiah 66:9

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord."

9. Psalm 91:4

"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings, you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."

10. Psalm 62:1-2

"My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him, He alone is my rock and my salvation."

11. Philippians 4:13

"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."

12. Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

When You Feel Like You Are At Your Breaking Point, Let God Be The Glue To Hold You Together

"I'll face my giants with confidence."

Class, work, social life, homework, shower, sleep, repeat.

Give or take, this is the typical day for a college student. I work four, sometimes five jobs within the span of a week. All while being a full-time college student and trying to enjoy life and be social like a college student should. There are many days where I leave my house early in the morning and I don't get back until late at night. Don't get me wrong, I love my busy life, but more often than I'd like to admit, I run myself ragged until I feel like I'm at my breakpoint. I felt like if I had to do one more homework assignment or work one more hour without taking a break and do nothing, I would lose my mind.

I kept telling myself that I didn't have time to take a nap or watch an episode of "The Office." I kept telling myself that if I could just get through this one assignment, then I could take a break. Before I knew it, that one assignment turned into three which turned into five, and before I know it, it's 1 a.m. and going to sleep isn't even a thought. Even on the days when you have nothing to do, you feel like you're forgetting something and you're going to miss an assignment or fail a test. It feels like there's always something you should be doing when you just want to do nothing. It's hard to allow yourself to rest because you feel like you have EVERYTHING to do and you end up feeling guilty for taking a couple hours to yourself.

But the truth is, it is OK to take a couple hours and binge watch a whole season of your favorite Netflix show.

A couple of weeks ago, I heard a song on the radio that resonated with me and was one of those songs that I just couldn't get out of my head. The song is "Confidence" by Sanctus Real and the message and power behind that song is so strong. I heard this song while I was going from one job to the next and I had to find it on Spotify and listen to it on repeat. One lyric, in particular, stuck with me and it's been on my mind since the first time I heard the song. It's the last line and it says "I'll face my giants with confidence." I try to listen to this song every morning to remind myself that God is my strength and He's in control of my day, good or bad. He can calm my anxiety and remind me that it's OK to rest and I can rest in Him. He gives me the confidence to face this business of life and be strong and proud of my busy life, while also learning to take time to myself and for Him. The Bible says in Colossians 3:15, "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."

I want to challenge you to let God be your peace in whatever stage of life you're in. Remember, He is in control and He is your confidence. Through Him, You're going to be OK.
