The Strong Verses
Emily Liner

It is no doubt that you will have a bad day or go through difficult times in your life, but no matter how hard you think life is, you always have God to catch you when you fall.

When you're struggling, turn to scripture for some encouragement.

These specific verses can give you some rest when you need it most

Romans 10:9 says, "Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." - This verse gives you security in that, if you KNOW Jesus is your savior, you will always be safe. When you feel like no one is there, KNOW THAT GOD IS.

Isaiah 43:1 says, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine," - When you start to feel like you no longer have a place in this world, know that God created YOU for a reason. He made you in His image with big plans for your life.

Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." - Some doubt the power of God only because they cannot see him, but ask yourself, can you see the wind blow? No, but you can feel it, and you can feel God. Life is always going to be hard, but with faith in the Lord anything is possible. Never let that go.

2 Corinthians 4:8-10 says, "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body." - NO matter how you read this verse, you come out a winner. Being hard pressed does not mean you are broken. Being perplexed does not make you ignorant. Being persecuted does not mean you have to be alone. Being struck down does not mean you are done. We carry around all of these things, and sometimes we forget what Jesus went through to save us from them all. God gives you peace when you need it most, you just have to learn to accept it.

2 Corinthians 12:9-12 says, "But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships,in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." - Christ DIED on the cross so that we could be saved. His love is never ending. So when you feel like the weight of the world is on YOUR shoulders, know that it isn't. All of those things that you are going through, are nothing compared to the suffering Christ went through for you. So when you start to feel like you can't take it anymore, smile in the face of adversity because YOUR SAVIOR died so that you might live.

When life gets a little too hard, step back and remember that no matter how alone you think you are, you're not. Your God is always there. When you need that reinforcement and encouragement, turn to scripture and allow it to heal your heart. Allow God to consume your world, because you do His.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
