ATG Today

I was given the opportunity to try out and review a new app, called ATG Today (Awakening to God). It's available on iTunes and Google Play. 

With a simple, easy to use format and a great design, this app encourages me to daily "check in" and gives me a verse to focus on for each day, as well as writing prompts and a place for a photo. These are all combined into a Timeline, making it easy to see highlights of my life, as well as keep track of answered prayers. It's practical, encouraging, uplifting, convenient.... 

I appreciate anything that encourages me in my walk with God, and this app is a great tool for that! 

You can find the ATG Today app here. 

More about the app:
About Awakening to God Today (ATG Today):
A devotional journal to help you enjoy your walk with God, with thanksgiving from your heart, everyday touches and prayers. Inspiration for 8 minutes with God at the start of your day, learning to hear His voice, memorize scripture, pray and journal. Lots of great ideas to build your faith, share scripture, encourage others and strengthen family devotions.

You can watch the video ‘How Do You Keep Living After the Death of Two Children’ at: www.awakeningtogod.org and see Mission, Vision and Strategy under About.

A little about the founders: 
Gerald & Jeannie Long experienced success and wealth based on the values of the world and also the deepest grief and suffering from the death of two of their three children.  On their journey, God has revealed His grace and glory to them in extraordinary ways.  In particular, they’ve experienced how God is able to redeem the most painful areas of our lives and turn them around for good.  Gerard has caught a deep awareness of eternity and Jeannie has experienced God’s presence and glory when she was close to ending her own life.  Their marriage has triumphed when all seemed lost and they’ve learnt invaluable lessons on their unbelievable journey.  And, they have a very clear message of God’s calling for each Christ follower to obey the Great Command and the Great Commission.

The purpose:
·         to inspire and encourage thousands of people in their walk with Christ (hopefully, leading to another ‘Awakening’ – see 2 Chron 7:14); and
·         to raise the funds to: dig a well in 100 villages in India, provide 40,000 meals to widows and orphans, 15,000 mosquito nets and a medical team for immunizations, cataract operations and other services.
