College is tough. There isn't a lot of accountability for getting your work done, so maybe you start to slack. Or maybe you're the type of person that enjoys staying on top of things and the thought of looming due dates and exams is overwhelming. Either way, college will put your tuition money where your mouth is. If you're looking for strength and refreshment, God is your go-to guy, because let's be honest, we can't do this on our own.
1 Peter 5:7
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
"I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken."
2 Corinthians 12:9
"My power is made perfect in weakness."
2 Thessalonians 3:3
"But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one."
"The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory."
"I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
"When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy."
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
God is the God of peace, the God of strength, and the God of all things good. Depend on him for your every need. I promise, trying to muster up your own strength to do things through your will only leaves you exhausted and defeated. The Lord desires your heart and that requires relinquishing control.
