Reading the bible can be so helpful in your daily life. It guides you through the good times and rough times. No matter what season of life you might be in, God is there to help you. You may ask, 'How can God help me?' or 'How can reading the bible help me?' It's simple really. All the answers you need (might not want but truly need) will be found in the bible. The bible is a great teaching tool and guide to help you live a much better, peaceful, and joyful life. In order to receive a peaceful and joyful life, you must also put all of the teachings of the bible into action. What is change if not with action?
The bible is God's word and gift to us. It will help us change into humble people with the most beautiful hearts and souls any human can have. Isn't that what most or all of us want? To be so loved, so kind, and at peace with everything that happens to us (the good and the not so good). If this is want you want, then I would suggest picking up a bible and start applying what you read to your life. If you don't want to carry a bible everywhere you go (and I don't blame you at all for not wanting to do that) you can download a bible app. Below I've listed some bible apps I've used and like to use.
1. The Bible App
The Bible app by Life.Church/YouVerison is a great way to read the bible. They have an easy way you can search for bible plans to help you with what you are struggling with. Best thing about this app is every plan is free. I use this app daily and I do a lot of different bible plans in this app for myself and with my Facebook group. For both iPhone and Android.
2. She Reads Truth
She Reads Truth is a wonderful study bible and it's on my wish list. She Reads Truth has great community within the app and has plans you can follow. Some of the plans you do have to purchase but once you do purchase them, they are yours to keep. I haven't done any plans in this app yet, but I have a few on my 'To Do' list that I will start on this summer. You can get this app for iPhone and Android.
3. BiOY (Bible in One Year)
BiOY is a free bible app that offers a daily plan to help you read through the bible in one year. I've downloaded this app to my phone and did a few of the daily plans/reads. It's a great tool if you want to learn more about the bible and what is in the New and Old Testaments. It is a lot to read but they have a great audio feature so you can listen to it. For both iPhone and Android.
4. Daily Grace
Daily Grace app is mostly for bible studies and plans. It's a very new app and more towards women. This app is based on The Daily Grace blog and their studies. I did download this app and check it out. I do like it but some of their plans are pricey. They do offer a great community for women and offer a few free plans.
