5 Bible Verses For When You Are Afraid

God is greater than our ups and downs.

5 Bible Verses For When You Are Afraid

We all face scary times in our lives; times when we are afraid of the future or of what's going to happen next. But, just like Daniel in the lion's den or Jonah in the whale, we know that if we just have faith, He will keep us afloat.

1. “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is my stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”                            -Psalm 27:1

2. “I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”                            -Joshua 1:9

3. “Surely my God is my salvation; I will rust, and will not be afraid, for the LORD God is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation.”                          -Isaiah 12:2

These first three verses remind us that God is always with us, and we do not have o be afraid of anyone or anything! God is our light, our salvation, and stronghold; He will protect us and deliver us.

4. “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The LORD is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him.’ The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.”                              -Lamentations 3:22-25

When you feel like crying during difficult times, cry out to God. He will always listen and He will always forgive when we need to be forgiven. He will help because God loves us and cares for us.

5. “Then King Darius wrote… ‘For he is the living God, Enduring forever. His kingdom shall never be destroyed, and his dominion has no end. He delivers and rescues, he works signs and wonders in Heaven and on earth; for he has saved Daniel from the power of the lions.”                       -Daniel 6: 26b-27

The king may not have been able to save Daniel from the lions, but God was! Because Daniel was so faithful to God (even though he knew he could get into trouble), God sent an angel to shut the mouth of the lion.

If we remember that, then we can be sure that, figuratively speaking, God could save us from all the "lions" we may encounter in our lives and help us in our time of need.

He will always take care of you, just like He took care of all the people in the Bible.

So, whenever you have a fearful thought, just remember that God is always with you and taking care of you.

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.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college 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.
