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.

Reboot!

I have worked in the IT industry for over 20 years.  Having an Operations background you run across many system related problems and many PC related problems.

Today there are a lot of buzz words that you hear used in the industry like “Cloud” computing, and some make their way in to pop culture and even into the dictionary, like “Google”.

So that got me to thinking about  the term reboot,  and when you would actually perform one on a PC.

When you call tech support  for help trouble shooting your PC one of the first things they ask is if you rebooted your PC.  That is usually the big fix for most issues.  I can’t log on to the network – “Reboot!” My PC crashed – “Reboot!”, etc.

I was watching the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, which is a very good movie about “juicing”.  In the movie they mentioned the word “reboot” as they referred to cleansing your body and changing what you put into your body as you start your diet.

Then I thought how many times do we need a Spiritual Reboot?  We need to be connected to God’s Network.  If we’re not – we need to reboot.  How many Pop ups are we allowing in our lives that are causing viruses in our spiritual life?  Are we running our lives without the Critical Updates such as prayer and Bible Study? Have we clicked on something we shouldn’t have and now we have a Virus?  Maybe we are headed for the Blue Screen of death in our spiritual lives because we don’t have God’s Service Pack Installed.  We need to go read the manual (which is the Bible) so we can install the latest Fix.

Friends we need to Format our Hearts and install God’s Operating system.  We need to Spam others and tell them about the Love of Jesus Christ.  Tell them to Click Now because they may have already won Eternal Life!

Malachi 3:10 says “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

See…God is our Server and He’s running Windows of Heaven Open System…It’s time for an upgrade in our Spiritual lives…

I am connected to the “Cloud” of Glory and I am running Windows of Heaven Version Seventh Day Adventist, because I don’t mess with Apples!!

Until later….I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod…

Blessings,

Dwayne
