I was recently thinking to myself how my smartphone is like the closest element to me on this earth. I can not imagine leaving the house for a whole day without my phone.
Honestly, this has both pros and cons. Recently, I did an audit of some sort of my time, and people of God, the amount of time I spend on social media is crippling. This is because I really just scroll mindlessly on Instagram, Twitter and the rest whenever I’ve got any spare time. You know how the gists never end on these apps.
Then, I decided to take control of my time and be more productive. In the course of this, I came across awesome apps. Truly, I may not be able to totally separate myself from my mobile because on it is built part of my work, business and relationships. So I ensured that while on the mobile, I find ways to edify myself.
Without further ado, let’s dive right into it! 4+1 Apps That Would Transform Your Christian Life;
This has been a very useful app for me on my Christian journey. It has the Bible in different versions that you can choose to read or listen to, you can also highlight and share bible verses. Also, you have the Bible in different forms. It also has different bible plans – a lot of them are short say 5 days so it is not overwhelming at all. You can even set reminders! These bible plans or devotional take you through a certain topic or bible segment day after day and it is just so beautiful. It also has a community effect, so you can explore a plan with your friends or choose to do it privately. I recommend it!
