Today is not going right, perhaps. Someone has hurt you, or things at work are not going as planned as it should. Since we can’t live in a church, technology is the buffer when you can’t get the Bible or a devotional out. Faith applications can help and be used as a tool between meetings, after a heated argument, or when you need the Word of God, stat!
Before you go off the deep end, turn the day around.
Don’t let a bad experience determine your day. These five apps can help you in a pinch.

Faith without action leads us nowhere. Use apps or any tool to help you through a bad day, or when feeling betrayed. Even when there is a good day, dive into the Word.
Let me share this Scripture before we part from Psalms 27:1.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?”
