Well, we are 3 days into 2013. How’s it going??? For me, pretty good. My son went back to school yesterday, but we had a great Christmas break with everyone at home. When I dropped him off at school this morning, after he got out of the car, my daughter whispered “I miss you Bubba!” It was so sweet…really melts a momma’s heart. I love it that my kids get along so well, even if there’s about 4 1/2 years between them.
The new year brings a lot of things, one of which is New Years Resolutions. People resolve to do a lot of things in the new year. Most are very good and ambitious. You see stores putting workout equipment on sale…not a coincidence 🙂 I work for Weight Watchers, and the first few weeks of the year, we add extra staff at our meetings to help with the crowds.
If this year, your resolution is to have more personal Bible study time, I have the perfect tool for you!! This is a brand new FREE app that has been in the App Store only a few days. Here’s the link to it!
When you open the app each day, it will give you a short Bible verse to read. It’s not a lengthy reading at all…perfect for a person who has just a few minutes at a time to read. If you want to go a little further into it, you can click on the icon in the top right hand corner, click on “View with devotional of the Day” and it will take you to a short devotional thought that goes with the scriptures you just read.
Once you’ve read the daily verse, you can share it with friends, check mark it as read. There is also a nice feature you can set to remind you at a certain time of the day that it’s time to stop, take a break, and spend a few minutes with God.
Forgot to read for a week?? That’s ok. When you open the app, you won’t have seven scriptures to read all at once. It will just load up the next verse in line and you pick up there. So, even if you wait a few days to download this app (but why would you wait??), you will still have one scripture in your app to read.
This would also make a nice addition to any personal devotion time you may already be spending. I like this app, because it’s a nice thought to say “I’m going to read my Bible everyday”. However, sometimes you need a little guidance as to what you should read. If you’re like me, you might also need a gentle reminder to have your devotional time.
Did I mention it’s FREE??? Can’t beat that 🙂 Check out the app today & download it to your iPhone. This is one app you won’t be sorry that you downloaded it!!!
