CHRISTIAN RESOURCES – journal and iPhone apps


Hey guys it’s Fumnanya. If you’re new here welcome, if you’re not
welcome back. Either way you are welcome! Today I wanted to come on and just give like
a little update and also talk about my journal because I am finished. I think I have like a couple pages left. But I already went and got a new journal because
I don’t want to be without one for when I run out of pages in this. My first entry in this journal was March 13th
2016 and I can’t remember when I put my video up but I’ll link it in this. I just remember that season I was kind of
trying to be more intentional, I was trying to be more intentional about my devotional,
about journaling about really being able to keep record of what was happening in my life. I just remember it being so awkward at first
and it’s crazy now to think that I filled this entire thing up. Look how thick it is. Now it’s such a part of my routine. I can’t even imagine going through my devotional
or my day or even listening to messages without journaling them. But this I think is been so instrumental to
my growth. I was talking to my sister the other day and
I forget we were talking about, but she was just saying you’ve changed so much like she
mentioned a situation that happened last week or so or a couple days before and she was
like the way you reacted was just like well who is that? I really think that being more intentional
about my quiet time and sort of journaling and spending that devotional time has been
still instrumental to that personal growth. That I wanted to come on and let you guys
know that I’m not just telling you to do things that I don’t do. I actually do do all this stuff. This is my old journal 2016/2017 and
this is my new journal. Isn’t she pretty? I’m really excited for this season and I’m
going to definitely keep you guys posted of course. But I wanted to sort of talk a little bit
about some other things that kind of help me stay on track. I wanted to mention these things because a
lot of you reach out and ask what do you read your Bible on? What do you do your devotionals on? How are you keeping up with everything? So I wanted to just touch on some of that
in this video really quickly. I use the you version Holy Bible app and I
love this app because it’s kind of like an all-in-one one-stop shop
for your devotional. This is what I rely on, it’s got every single
version that you could ever want of the Bible right there. What I also really really like about this
app is that it has plans in it which are devotionals. You can go to the plan section and pick any
plan you want. The ones that I have recently done that I
loved I did the Esther plan, that 1 was amazing. I did the Jericho plan and I’m just now finishing
up the Daniel plan. They just have plans for every category you
could ever think of and they’re so helpful because they’ll give you a little blurb devotional
to sort of frame and contextualize the text that you’re going to read and then you can
go ahead and read the text for yourself. Like I said there are a bunch of different
versions so you can do NKJV, KJV, NIV, message amplified whatever you want it’s right there. I like switching versions just so that I can
get different versions of what the scripture says just to get a deeper understanding. So I love the plans function. Then you can always bookmark too so if you
like something bookmark it write a little note and just have that to go back to. I remember one time a couple months ago a
friend reached out to me and she said that she was going to a really difficult time could
I pray for her? I told her I can pray for you, I can also
send you a bunch of Scripture but I’ve bookmarked over the course of several months when I felt
discouraged or afraid or worried. So just having those scripture to go back
to has been really really valuable, not just for me but for people around me. So love that app! Podcasts are amazing for when I’m in the car
and I want to listen to something uplifting, I want to come to a message but I don’t want
anything distracting. Podcasts are perfect because it’s just the
audio. I am subscribed to the TD jakes podcast, I’m
subscribed to the blue church podcast, I am subscribe to Darrius Daniel’s podcast and
I’m also subscribe of course to the elevation podcast. Like I said it’s just amazing. What you can do is if you really like a message
you can go ahead and save the episode that way you can always refer back to it. Whenever you go to that podcast you just click
on it and I’ll show you the unplayed podcast, it’ll show you the feed. Then if you have saved episodes it’ll also
have a little tab for your saved podcast. So you can go back and listen to and relisten
to messages that you really enjoy. So I think the podcast app is definitely up
there for something that I use very regularly. Another thing I really like to use is audible. I’ve been using audible very recently. I think it’s Christians we tend to over spiritualize
things and I just like to be kind of practical about it so I know that what people say to
me has an impact on me. When people speak life into or over me it
has an impact on me. So for some of these books I would rather
hear them then read them if that makes sense just because I know how I work. I’ve been listening to crash the Chatterbox
that book has been incredible, there’s so many little nuggets in there. If you’re someone who’s always in your head,
if you’re someone who worries a lot, fears a lot, stresses a lot that’s a book that’s
been really encouraging for me. I listened to the wait recently. In this season that’s something that’s very
relevant in my life. You know what I’m saying? I’m listening right now so I am number 8 by
John Gray, so good. So what I’m just saying is that they have
a lot of Christian literature that you can kind of get into. On the discover page you can kind of search,
browse, you can preview clips of the books. It’s just such a great thing to have while
I’m driving just to make sure that I’m filling up, not getting like in my own head, not listening
to things that like I said don’t edify but rather listening to things that really build
me up and strengthen me spiritually and mentally and also emotionally as well. So these are just the ones that I use daily,
these are my day-to-day apps that I use. That’s it for my video, I hope you guys can
enjoy, I’m so excited about this new chapter in my life. I’m so excited about this new journey that
I’m about to start. I’m so excited about this new journal. Isn’t it so pretty? I feel like it was just designed for me. So I’m going to keep you guys posted along
the way. Let me know how things are going with you
guys. I definitely want to hear. Some of you told me that you were going to
start your own journals, so let me know how that’s going, if it’s helping you. If you need any tips don’t feel afraid to
reach out at all. I love to answer your guys questions. So that’s it for the video. Thank you so much for watching again. I love you guys so much. Don’t forget to leave your comments and requests
down below and I can’t wait to see you in my next video

  1. You're beyond amazing.. It is good to know that there are young women like me sold out to Jesus Christ .. ❤

  2. Right on time. I was thinking about trying out podcast for my church's (Church of the highlands) 21 days of prayer and fasting. Someone also mentioned Steven Furtive's book to me today.

  3. I can't make out what u said u listen to after podcast. Is it audiopoll? Incidentally, I really enjoy ur videos ESPECIALLY the Christian ones. It inspires me one Christian to another. Keep it up!

  4. Hey! I started journaling last year and it has really helped me work through my feelings about things. I used to have the Bible app but it took up too much space on my phone so I just use my real Bible and I made my own plan.

  5. I have trouble keeping the journals, or anything I write. I've developed the habit, but I don't keep my prayers or pages with heartache. I wish I did. I would love to be able to look back and see the progress. Perhaps its a security thing for me, I don't want someone reading it.

  6. Just discovered your channel. Instantly a subscriber, you don’t find this kind of content too often. I wanted to share some gems that I have came across that have helped me in my Christian walk. On YouTube All Nations Worship with Pastor Matthew Stevenson. On the podcast app Timmothy Keller , Coach Josh, One Church LA, Ravi Zacharias.
    Stay Blessed! 💕

  7. im getting started in faith journaling and im so excited for this journey! I think it will be extremely helpful when entering college

  8. I’ve heard you say “we over spiritualize things” in a lot of videos but what does that really mean?
