In this world filled with gadgets and gee whiz toys I have a found a pretty amazing tool. I now have an Iphone 4S at my side. With the press of a button and a few voice prompts I have world of information and knowledge at my fingertips. My kids and I were having some fun asking the phone the population of various cities and countries around the world. Within a few seconds there in my hand I would have the data to spout back at the kids. I even asked the phone a silly question like "Hey am I good looking" to which the phone responded "I can't answer that right now". That sure gave the kids, and my wife, a good laugh.
Being an outdoor nut I quickly began to look for apps to add to the phone that might help me with hunting. I found two apps that every Iphone outdoor user should have. The first is an app called mytopo. Mytopo was created by the folks at tremble. Within a few seconds you can literally have various topo maps of your hunting properties in your hand. You can mark your stand locations, or possible locations you would like explore , so you can easily navigate to them. You could also mark all the spots you find blood on the ground while you are tracking your wildgame. If for some reason you have to come back the next day and it has rained overnight..no big deal you now have a virtual moving map saved on your Iphone to help you navigate back to the area you last found sign.
All of these apps that the Iphone offers are pretty neat. The more I think about it though, all of mankind has been given an app that is a far better guide than anything apple could ever create. What is that app you say? The app is none other than God's Word, the Bible. The Bible is the ultimate app to guide us through the challenges that life throws at us. I can honestly say that as I have read the Bible over the years, prayed over what I read, and asked the Holy Spirit to give me understanding, there has not been a time that I have not found the answers I have needed to guide me through any given situation. As a matter of fact look at what scripture says about the Bible being a guide. Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path".
