During these times like this, you feel sad and long to be back at home with your family and the comforts of home. This is a natural response to being away from home for a long period of time.

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10)

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

It is February, and that means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. With the upcoming holiday in mind, many people find themselves reflecting on their love life.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

College students are often stressed. Studying, tests and figuring out your future career all combine to create a lot of anxiety. It is hard to plan your life when you don’t even know who you are as a person yet, let alone what you want to do with the rest of your life. It is in these times of stress that we can find God’s peace.
