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.

Each one Teach one…

Our experiences are what God gives us to help others.  When things happen to us in life it is so easy to say “why me?” I’ve come to know that the question is not “why me?” it’s more like God is saying “why not you?” or “it’s you because I need you to experience this so you can help someone else”.

It is said you can’t have a testimony without a test.  So true.  I’ve come to know that sometimes our experiences are not for us, they are for the next person that comes across our path.  You see God can use us by putting us in the right place at the right time to help the right person. Each one can teach one through their own experiences. I know you’ve heard whatever doesn’t kill  you makes you stronger, and If God brings you to it, he’ll see you through it. All true.

The Master tells us in His Word  “Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.” (2 Cor. 1:6,7 NLT)

Friends, delight in the rough times, a loved one may have passed, you may have lost a job, or experienced a divorce, lost your home, etc.  because it’s just God refining you and preparing you for His blessings.  He is giving you that experience, he’s using it to mold you, so you can share His love to help someone else along their way…

Share yourself…Each one teach one!

Until later, I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod!

Blessings!
