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.

Don’t Waste Time….

Hi Friends,

Thank you all for coming back and reading and sharing my blog. I appreciate all the comments and encouragement.

People ask me why I am so open with my life story and why do I reveal so much about me.  I need to lay this foundation so you will understand my future posts.  I will get back to My Story soon and I apologize that the last part was not as long as the others…it is a real process to “go there” in my past and bring you my story, but I know it is what God wants me to do for someone out there.  But enough about that, let’s get started.

As you will find out in My Story, (and not to get ahead of myself) I was walking the fence for some time, but when I heard God call me to him – I answered, and I have not looked back since. (By God’s Grace I never will).

Someone out there needs to know that you need to answer that knock on the door of your heart.  Don’t waste time thinking, “right after I get this right, I’m coming to Jesus” or “I just need to do this, then I’m ready”.

James 4:14 says “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” New Living Translation

Do you like how you are living now? Do you want to make some changes?

Whitney Houston thought she had more time, Steve Jobs thought he had more time. I thought my Father had more time.  None of us are promised tomorrow.

Jesus speaking to the Disciples when they asked about signs that the end is near in Matthew 24:16-18 says “Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. A person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. A person out in the field must not return even to get a coat.” New Living Translation

Friends we need to move with urgency when we are called. Many of us have decisions we need to make in our lives and we are standing there at the crossroads thinking about which way to go and we are just wasting time.

We need to pray to God and Trust in Him in all things so that we don’t waste the time he gives us.  Don’t return to the house to pack, God will provide. Don’t return from the field for a coat. God will cover you. Stop pondering and act.

You know the times [in which we are living]. It’s time for you to wake up. Our salvation is nearer now than when we first became believers. Romans 13:11 God’s Word Translation

It is not hard to see the world around us is a mess. I grew up hearing people say “Jesus is coming soon!” Our Parents said it, their Parent’s said it and so on, but now more than ever I believe Jesus return is SOON!.  Seek Him and you will find Him, call on Him and He will come.

2 Peter 3:10 says: “The day of the Lord will come like a thief…” On that day heaven will pass away with a roaring sound. Everything that makes up the universe will burn and be destroyed. The earth and everything that people have done on it will be exposed. God’s Word Translation

So it’s not my intention here to preach Fire and Brimstone, I’m just saying in my Faithwalk, I am trying to Judge myself from now, expose myself from now, prepare for the Kingdom that is coming now….. I don’t want to waste time.

Whoever hears what I’m really saying here, I just want to encourage you on YOUR Faithwalk.  You are not the only one trying to do God’s Will.  I’m with you….I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod…..

Blessings,

Dwayne

Dwayne…I never fail to be inspired and encouraged after reading your blog. God has truly blessed you to be His messenger. I am encouraged to live each day better than the day before. I pray that God continues to bless for you and everyone that this reaches in your/their faithwalk.
