10 Bible Verses For When Your Semester Gets Tough, Because Trust Me, It Will

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."

Psalm 16:8

"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."

Exodus 15:2

"The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory."

Isaiah 41:10

"I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Proverbs 16:3 

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."

Matthew 11:28

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

Psalm 94:19

"When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy."

Philippians 4:6-7

"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.

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.

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.
