This Body Fashioned Anew- April 13
Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body. (Philippians 3:21)   Often when we are racked with pain and unable to think or worship, we feel that this indeed is “the body of our humiliation,” and when we are tempted by the passions which rise from the flesh we do not think the word vile at all too vigorous a translation. Our bodies humble us; and that is about the best thing they do for us. Oh, that we were duly lowly, because our bodies ally us with animals and even link us with the dust!  But our Savior, the Lord Jesus, shall change all this. We shall be fashioned like His own body of glory. This will take place in all who believe in Jesus. By faith their souls have been transformed, and their bodies will undergo such a renewal as shall fit them for their regenerated spirits. How soon this grand transformation will happen we cannot tell; but the thought of it should help us to bear the trials of today and alt the woes of the flesh. In a little while we shall be as Jesus now is. No more aching brows, no more swollen limbs, no more dim eyes, no more fainting hearts. The old man shall be no more a bundle of infirmities, nor the sick man a mass of agony. “Like unto his glorious body.” What an expression! Even our flesh shall rest in hope of such a resurrection!    From Faith’s Checkbook Mobile Devotion Android app – http://www.WhitneyApps.com

Happy 2011, All!!!

I’ve decided I want to blog more in 2011. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I created this blog in beginning 2010 and looking at my listings I have not been very active. But this year is the year for NOW, no procrastinating but getting things done. I will be posting on this blog AT LEAST once a week for all of 2011. This is not to say I wont have more postings throughout the week but I’m starting with AT LEAST once a wk. Which is my first message for this year… forget about what you have or have NOT done but rather what you will and want to do. The important things is to start off small to not overwhelm yourself and create a habit, once the habit is created than you can increase it.

I know it won’t be easy, but I’m sure it will be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful for me and prayerfully for you. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

When I first created this account my vision was/is for this to be something fun and cool, and to be able to inspire and help others so that maybe through my experiences I can somehow be a blessing to you. I also wanted to be able to grow from networking with others as well.

Please subscribe to blog and I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

God Bless,

India

P.S. I am also starting a youtube channel so please support me there as well. If you have any blogs or anything let me know, I would love to subscribe. ***

I receive daily devotions (Leadership Promises) from John Maxwell and  they are very enlightening so I thought about it before but now I decided to do it. I will post his daily devotions for you guys so that u can reflect on them as well and grow as a christian and leader in your daily walks. Feel free to share your thoughts on the daily posts as well… Here is today’s devotion…

May 6
The Tough and Tender Leader
For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

In his previous letter to the church, Paul played the role of the tough leader. He instigated conflict. In this letter, he speaks more from a personal viewpoint, more from his heart. He exudes tenderness.

In 2 Corinthians 7, the apostle discusses how he caused the Corinthians sorrow, but distinguished between good sorrow and bad sorrow. Every leader will find this distinction profitable to understand.

Consider the differences:
Bad Sorrow                                           Good Sorrow
1. Pain goes on indefinitely                     1. Pain is temporary
2. Example: Judas  (Matthew 27:3-5)       2. Example: Peter (Luke 22:54-62)
3. Leads to regret and death                   3. Leads to repentance and life
4. Suffering based on selfishness            4. Suffering based on God’s will

Leaders should never seek revenge or desire to hurt someone just to vindicate their action. The pain they bring should have the constructive purpose of repentance and recovery.

The Maxwell Leadership Bible

I may post yesterdays and the ones prior for this week as well. But remember “in order to be a leader you must be a follower FIRST”.
