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.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13923

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
