11 Verses for Overcoming Stress


If you are anything like me, you are already beginning to feel the back to college stress. While some of you may not be in college yet or may be long graduated, I am sure there are some points in your life where you feel the weight of stress on your shoulders. While I am not here to say I know everything (or even most things) about Bible verses and faith, I am here to share a few of my favorite verses to get me through the tough times. 


Psalm 118:5-6  "When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord;  he brought me into a spacious place. The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?"

Psalm 32:8  "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go:  I will counsel you with my loving eye on you."

Proverbs 16:3  "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."


Proverbs 16:9  "In their hearts humans plan their course,  but the Lord establishes their steps."

Psalm 37:5-6  "Commit your way to the Lord;  trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun."

Philippians 4:6  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."

Psalm 34:17  "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles."

Exodus 33:14  "The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."

Jeremiah 31:25  "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."

Romans 16:20  "The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you."

Philippians 4:13  "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."
