My name is Dwayne Peterkin. I was re-baptized April 2011 and since then I have been doing my best to obey the Lord Jesus Christ and do his will. In this sinful world IT IS NOT EASY to stand up for God. You'll be tested, friendships may fall by the wayside, old habits will fade away. I hope that as I share my Faith Walk, others are encouraged on theirs. I hope you join me on this journey.

Be Still…

I have been blogging almost a year so I was looking at old posts and decided to repost this one…Blessings!


Hello Friends,

I will get back to Part 2 of my story next post –  I promise.

The past 3 mornings as I have gone out to my car to go to work, there has been a bird in my neighbors tree that  sings the most beautiful song.  (I think I’m going to try and record it).

The first day I noticed it and said “that’s a pretty sound”.  Other than the bird it was quiet that morning.  I thought it was a one time thing and then I heard it again on the second morning. I thought “wow that’s that bird again”. This morning as I heard the bird I said “Good Morning Bird”

This morning when I woke up for some reason two words came to me..”Be Still”  (Now if you read my other posts you’ll know that I will say that was the Holy Spirit speaking…)

1 Kings 19:11 NLT says “Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the LORD told him. And as Elijah stood there, the LORD passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake.”

1 Kings 19:12 KJV says “And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.”

Can you hear that Still Small Voice? Do you hear that bird in the mornings? Many times we may say that the Lord doesn’t speak to us.  I believe when we are listening for him we can hear him.

I have not had cable TV in my house for about 4 weeks now. Originally it was off for a day because I was going to pay the bill on Payday.  Then the car broke down, etc.  so paying the cable bill kept getting put off. It has been a great blessing, because the time I would have spent watching TV, I spend studying the Word.  Now don’t get me wrong I am not saying “Cut off the Cable!”  what I am saying is sometimes we need to MAKE TIME for God.  Some times we need to be still!

Psalm 37:7 says “Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.”

Many of us are going through hard times and its easy to look at someone else and wonder why they have life so good and we are struggling, unemployed, in debt, going through a divorce, foreclosure,etc.  Before you work yourself up I am here to tell you – “Be Still!”

Matthew 6:6 NLT  says “But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.”

Phillipians 4:7 NLT says “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Be encouraged friends…God loves you and will take care of you.  Trust in the Lord Always.  Don’t worry about ANYTHING in your life. Pray to your Father.

I leave you with this:

“Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.”

Psalm 55:22 New Living Translation

Until the next time…I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod.



 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 KJV

Do you think the bird was Mocking bird? We have a few pair around our house I call them the worship leaders of the song birds for they know everybody’s song and sing it better then all the rest! I enjoy them so much I have even written a poem about them. Boy I sure went down a birdie (bunny) trail with that one! It is great to be old, what where talking about? I guess I shall be still and say God Bless, Amen.
