For those of us who have accepted Christ as our savior, we each have to figure out what to do next. When you’ve experienced the transformational love of Christ the next question is usually: now what? Do we sit on our hands and enjoy God till we die or He comes back? Or are there ways we allow Him to work in us daily to further His Kingdom?
This is why Christian character matters. And Christian character comes from the influence of God’s Spirit shaping us into who He designed us to be more and more each day. As the apostle Peter said,
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” 2 Peter 1:3-4
But what does it mean to participate in the divine nature? One of the traditional tools for the spiritual life is journaling. I’ve never been much for that as it isn’t something I can keep up with and it ends up discouraging me more than anything else. If you are like me and are interested in a different way of experiencing God, here are four iPhone apps that I’ve found to be very helpful in no particular order.
