What was within you to cause such elation? Those were not external forces at work. Those scenarios were self-created. You extended the invitation to receive such joyous feelings. I’d be bold enough to say that everyone has experienced such a moment of excitement. Ever wonder what internal process creates those experiences? How do we make more of them? My hope is that this month’s newsletter will bring as much heat to your energy levels as we’re about to encounter in our summer days!

Ephesians 2:10 is one of my favorite verses and it reads, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Recently, I was writing in my prayer journal and prayed about this scripture. I asked God to remove all from my life that prohibits me from walking in His will and completing the good works he has prepared for me. I wrote down several things I want to accomplish in life and asked God to show me if my desires are in line with His will.
One should try to spend at least five or ten minutes not reading, not talking, not wishing, not writing not anything just contemplate silently that God is our Heavenly Father who loves us and wants only the best of ‘things’ for us. Then as we wait in the silence, we want to see if we can hear God speaking to our hearts. After, you have spent enough time for the various stages the next item is to write in your journal all the things you prayed about, all the things you read about as well as all the ‘feelings’ or ‘understandings’ you came to with God while in contemplation. That’s it! You are now done with your daily personal devotion! You will find that the more you have of these daily devotions the more time you will want to spend doing so.
For each reminder that you set, Echo will send you a prayer from your prayer list. Generally, it will pick prayers at random, but you also have the option to be reminded of a specific prayer at a certain time.
Assuming from the name some people think that netbooks are only good for browsing the net. After using one for 6 months as the primary computer I would say that it is not true one bit. If you don’t plan on playing too recent games, or try to have too many windows open, you will find it a pleasant experience to work on a mini. On the other hand laptops are good for everything, cheaper laptops are more limited than a more expensive one, just as you would expect.
By the way, God has written our names in the Book of Life and He has recorded our names on His mighty hands, “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have written you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me” (Isaiah 49: 15-16). “You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book” (Psalm 56:8).
