Psalms #8 – Final Thoughts

Psalms

This is the last post in the Psalms series and we hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as we have enjoyed writing it. The RCG team has really enjoyed researching and studying psalms. We have discovered loads of things we didn’t know about the psalms.

The Psalms were not intended to be read, they were simply the writer’s, who was mostly David, emotions throughout his life. Often when we read them we say he must have been thinking one way or another whilst he wrote a specific psalm. We simply don’t know what he was thinking but that does not mean we cant learn anything from them. In this series we have been looking at possibilities of where and when David wrote a Psalm so we can try to understand some of what he was thinking whilst he wrote the psalms. We’d finally like to say a quick thank you to everyone who has read any of the posts. Please email us any feedback to rcgteam@yahoo.co.uk. Stay tuned for more posts and the next series which is coming soon.

Psalms #7 – Psalm 23

As this is the penultimate post in what has been a very successful Psalms series, I thought we could return to a Psalm that we have already looked into the meaning of and tell you something very interesting about it. This year, one of the members of the  RCG Team took some time away from blogging and traveled out to the Western Front. The Western Front was home to much of the fighting in World War One and some of the worst battles the world have seen. In this post, I will be explaining how, after losing the most precious thing in their lives, devastated parents held onto their faith with God. This is displayed thought the message they chose to have inscribed on their sons headstone; the message of the Lord.

Bible Verse of The Day Reveiw

unnamed.pngToday I am going to review the Bible Verse of The Day app. It only seems to be available on Android at the moment, but there are many similar apps on other platforms.

As the title suggests, the idea of the app is to provide you with a verse every day, this is a great idea because many of us, myself included , find it hard to sit down and read our bibles. The app also has a widget feature, which allows you to put the verse on your home screen so you don’t miss it each day. The widget can be customized with different fonts, styles, sizes and verse topic. However, I did experience a few issues with the widget though for example sometimes the verse doesn’t fit on the widget and their doesn’t seem to be a way to scroll down without entering the app itself which removes some practicality.

All in all I think this app is a good app and is worth downloading however could be smoothed out to make it brilliant.

You can download it here from the Google play store.

Please comment your thoughts on this app below and if there are any other Bible/Christian apps you want us to review, email us at info.advice@yahoo.co.uk
