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.

The Do Over

sandkey sunset 12_01_12

Today I posted on my Facebook page that at 8:17 AM I was already looking for a do over.  It was really a crazy morning at work and on a  Monday, it’s pretty much expected.  I’m also battling a cold so that doesn’t help either.

I miss that childhood innocence that if you don’t like what you’ve just done, or if the result of whatever you are participating in is not to your liking that you can just shout “do over!” and give it another try.

So today I left work after my morning meeting, ate some soup, and got back in bed.  I was thinking that this is about as best as I can get for a do over today.  But after I got real with myself and stopped whining (the whole world is coming to an end when I’m sick!) I realized that through Christ, I have gotten the biggest do over ever!

As I think of the man I was and look at the man I have become, I am truly thankful! Mind you this do over came with its share of pain to myself and others but nothing compares to the ultimate price  our Savior paid so that we can have a chance for a do over of our sinful life.

2 Corinthians 5:17 states:  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

 What a privilege it is to have this opportunity! Jesus gave us the ultimate do over and  I am so thankful for it!  That is why I do my best to live like Matthew 6:33  says: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Jesus gave His life for me so I feel that the least I can do is try to live this life the best I can….I know I can never repay Him, but the least I can do is try to do His work and His will, with the do over He gave me….

Blessings friends! I pray everyone who reads this is blessed and impressed to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and accept His gift of the do over!

Until later…I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod!

Blessings…

Dwayne
