7 Bible Verses for Stress Relief

Three weeks into the new school year and I'm already stressed out. Many college kids are around now because the first round of tests are coming up. I've spent my whole weekend studying, and I am so overwhelmed with all of the things that I have to do. Desperately, I have tried to find things that will relieve my extreme stress: stress relief candles, chocolate...but nothing works. Then I realized that I am looking for peace in all the wrong places. Our ultimate stress reliever is Jesus, and the Bible has several verses that can relieve our worry. Here are just a few.


Philppians 4:6-7

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


Psalm 94:19

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


John 14:27

27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.


Proverbs 16:3

3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.


Psalm 118:5-6

5 When hard pressed, I cried to the LORD; he brought me into a spacious place. 6 The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?


Matthew 11:28-30

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”


Psalm 55:22

22 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?


You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
