Why Christ’s Resurrection is Important

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

One Sunday each summer in the Philippines, we remember that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead more than two thousand years ago.

Personally, I would say that real faithful children of God should remember and recognize this as often as they can.

But I’m still thankful that at least once a year, Filipinos take some time to reflect upon our Savior’s resurrection.

What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do

It’s unavoidable. Time comes when you go through a crossroad in life.

Most are easy to handle, others are tougher.

Some even required careful consideration and a lot of wisdom.

It’s certain, though, that there are points in life that, even with all the knowledge you may currently possess, you will still not know what to do.

What do you do then, when that time comes?

The Only Thing Permanent is Change

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

Cliché, but true.

We need to understand and accept that everything around us changes. Nothing is forever sure.

You and I are growing old, we can’t stop that.

People come and people go, we can’t control that.

An Aura of Gratitude

Post written by Raymund and Denielle Tamayo

Have you ever gone out to lunch every Monday with a person who always talked about his problems?

Not asking for help or advice, but just whining and complaining about everything in his life that did not meet his expectations.

How about if you spent time with this person not just every noon on Mondays, but every lunch, every day? How stressed do you think you would be?

That’s how ingratitude affects people.

Renew Your Mind

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

The human mind is more powerful than we can imagine. Our thoughts influence our beliefs, feelings and actions more than we are aware of.

They rule what we are; in fact, we are what we think.

When thoughts are positive, life becomes hopeful.

When thoughts are negative, life becomes depressing.

Ergo, you cannot have a positive life with a negative mind. The two just can’t go together.

Simply Amazing

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

I’ve always been amazed by simple things.

First, I am amazed by the fact that I can breathe, be quiet, and sit still for a minute. There’s a calmness and peacefulness that comes with it. In stillness you learn to be content. You don’t need to eat junk food, or shop on impulse, or compare yourself to others, or to make more money to keep up with the Joneses, or to achieve power and glory, be selfish and greedy, be constantly busy and overwhelmed.

Love, Joy, Peace

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

Love, Joy, and Peace.

If you are like me, you think about these words as “feel good” ideas that everyone wants. Unfortunately, in today’s world they seem harder and harder to realize. Why?

Trusting God Daily

Post written by Raymund and Denielle Tamayo

Principles of responsibility, discipline, and independence are some of the things we wish to teach our children. Some of us even attempt to live these philosophies in our own life.

Make no mistake about it, being responsible, self-controlled, and self-reliant are good.

The inherent danger, however, is if, or when, our outlook comes to the point when we trust more in ourselves than in God.

This outlook creates two hazards that can both lead to spiritual decay.

Enjoying Life Now Doesn’t Mean Sacrificing Your Future

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

We’re often told that we have to suffer now in order to succeed later. That to have a good future, we should deprive ourselves now.

My mind was always battling with that concept. I thought we should enjoy life now and live it the fullest! Don’t worry about the future, Que sera sera! What will be, will be! God will provide!

I noticed that both ideas seemed right, but incomplete. The two ideas should complete and complement each other. How? Let me explain.
