Lead Your Year in Prayer

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
Not everyone is excited about beginning a new year. For some, it is a reminder that life is just passing them by and they are still far away from their hopes and dreams. Others think of a new year as something dreadful because they are obligated to do “promised” resolutions. While there are also people who are plain indifferent about starting a new year and see it as just another ordinary day.

As children of God, the New Year should hold great importance to us as it means that God took us through an old year and is ready to be with us again in the coming year, and the years ahead.

Resolve to Live a Godly Life

It’s the beginning of another year and people are psychologically triggered to make New Year’s resolutions. If you ask me, I’d rather create good habits one at a time, and put off old bad habits to start the year. 

I’d also rather take you to the book of Psalm chapter 101:2 where the psalmist King David said “I will be careful to lead a blameless life – when will you come to me? I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart.”

Morning Praises: Eternity with Christ

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

“Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him.” 2 Timothy 2:11-12a
Life on earth is temporary. It is only a blink of an eye compared to eternity. Can you imagine spending eternity with Christ? Indescribable.

All the hassles, hardships, and heartaches I face here on earth turns into nothing when I think about spending forever with the Lord.

Regular exercise can make us feel happier. It doesn’t only make our bodies fit, but it can also refresh our tired minds and souls.

Medical studies suggest that exercise can actually help relieve stress as it causes the natural release of feel-good endorphins in the brain to give us a more positive attitude.

Inspiration is Everywhere

Inspiration is key to a fruitful life, and it can be found everywhere. We only need to listen to what God is trying to say through His Word, our day-to-day experiences, small realizations, and interactions with people.

Inspiration drives us to new opportunities, builds our confidence, and makes us stronger in the face of trials and tribulations. When your days are filled with inspiring thoughts and experiences, you will feel joyful and capable. You can endure and move on when everyone else had already given up.

Blessings Are Not Always Material Things

Post written by Raymund Tamayo


Blessings aren’t always material things. Most of the time, these things can actually be a burden and a liability.

Blessings are also having good health and wholesome relationships, doing work that you love, experiencing personal and spiritual growth, and serving in a community that brings out the best in you.

Your latest gadget means nothing if your family is in disarray or your lungs and kidneys are deteriorating because of your bad habits.

But for me, blessings are anything that gets you closer to God. Even problems can be blessings if they give you the opportunity to have a deeper relationship with Him.

3 Life-Giving Ideas about Forgiveness

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

Forgive anyone for anything as soon as possible.

This is the most essential component of inner healing.

The truth is that forgiveness is for your benefit. Unforgiveness is basically the same as drinking poison and then expecting the object of your resentment to die.

“I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.” – Psalm 119:7

Praising God is natural for those who truly love Him.

And truly loving Him is shown in our obedience to His Word. Praise is basically linked to our character.

Happiness is Internal

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

Happiness is not a product of luck or coincidence. Being happy is intentional.

Everything that happens to you in life is the result of all the choices you make.

You may argue that sometimes, in some situations, you just don’t have a choice. But, oh yes, you did! You just chose not to choose.
