A Proverb a Day Keeps the Devil Away applies the principles of God found in the Book of Proverbs to daily living. Illustrations are used to trigger the memories of its readers to past and present experiences in life; hopefully, causing the lesson of each devotion to profoundly impact the reader. These illustrations stem from relationships, home, work, play, decisions, reactions, thoughts, injustice and justice. Some are humorous and some very serious. Each one demonstrates the theme of that verse. The Book of Proverbs is as timely as time itself. Times have changed but people have not. They still face the hard issues of life: the same fears and hurts, the same temptations and sin, the same struggle with what is right and wrong, and the same questions about what role God really plays in their life. This devotional study aids its readers in getting a grip on these challenges. Philip Ayers was born in Roanoke, Virginia, on March 2nd, 1948. He is the second born of a family of five.

Spotting The Devil/Spotting The Devil From Far and Near. Avoiding The Trap Of Negative Behavior In Order To Fulfill The Purpose Of Ones Life. The word devil in this book is not used in the traditional sense. The word devil conjures up a powerful image of everything that is negative and destructive and it is in this sense that the word is used. We are surrounded by it. In many ways we are consumed by it, yet man is afraid to utter the word, as if by saying the word devil man is somehow admitting that he is accepting of this taboo and is in aggreance with the devil force. This book says that we must and can learn to identify all these negatives as they come at us in order to avoid the dire consequences that come about as a result of our contact with these devils in our society. This book seeks to examine the world in which we live with an analytical approach to why we as the human race make the choices in life that we do. It starts with a simple story about an incident that happens in the authors childhood, with the intention of explaining why the author sees things the way he does and coming to the realization that this was a defining moment in his life, even though he did not know it at the time. This book looks at fear, the fear that is an obstacle to most of us and this fear is something we take for granted, Most of us think that this fear is normal and that there is no way around it. Not true, as the author explains. He goes into the reasons why we must conquer these fears and where most of these fears originate. The author goes on to explain friendship and how we are so easily lulled into different behavior, how easy it is for us to get caught up in the moment and how easily it is to get carried away, usually to our detriment. In using stories from his life experience he takes the reader on a journey and in every step of that journey he unfolds a secret. There is so much that we take for granted and yet so much of this behavior can be prevented if we could only recognize what is coming at us, just like the driver who knows he is about to collide with another car because he sees it coming towards him from the opposite direction. The author looks at popular culture from the inside out and shows us how we are surrounded by so much negativity yet we dont know it because we do not look at society from this angle. We can have a greater appreciation for the images that are fed to us if we see them for what they are, and we can watch and enjoy without becoming consumed by fantasy if we understand the motives behind what is being fed to us. In these times, it is crucial that we learn from the mistakes of the past and we challenge ourselves to be more disciplined and to develop our sense of foresight because we all have the gift. We are born with it, but as we grow we allow societys ills to get the better of us and we just follow rather than lead ourselves into a better life, where we can find the fulfillment that we all seek. This book looks at first, the microcosm, and then the macrocosm, taking a peek at wars and what is the lesson of these wars. The author also looks at religion and mans attitude towards it. Why do we get caught up in imagery and names and not listen to what is truth and what makes sense. We follow, even when two plus two does not make four, we follow blindly and again are led downstream. Finally the author looks at colors that have been in cultures for thousands of years and unravels the associations that many have come to attach to certain colors. This book is an eye opener, written in a simple language that would only serve to enlighten and unravel some of the mysteries that make life so complex. The key is right in front of us. We feel it, therefore we know it, and we are in denial more than we are not. Do we get dressed everyday for the creator, or do we get dressed for ourselves? It is true that man cannot serve two masters, but one can always find th
Have you ever asked yourself “Do God really exists? Who is God? What’s the meaning of life? What is real love? Or will I see my love ones in the afterlife? “then this is the book you need to read in order to understand the truth about the questions that has puzzled the minds of geniuses since the beginning of time. In this small book you will get a clear understanding of how to obtain a life of peace, love, and happiness, and how to live beyond this stage called death. These are the forbidden words of Truth, and the unspoken Wisdom of the king creator. This is the power that the devil does not want you to understand, and that is the power of Love.
A journalist's obsession brings her to a remote island off the California coast, home to the world's most mysterious and fearsome predators--and the strange band of surfer-scientists who follow them Susan Casey was in her living room when she first saw the great white sharks of the Farallon Islands, their dark fins swirling around a small motorboat in a documentary. These sharks were the alphas among alphas, some longer than twenty feet, and there were too many to count; even more incredible, this congregation was taking place just twenty-seven miles off the coast of San Francisco. In a matter of months, Casey was being hoisted out of the early-winter swells on a crane, up a cliff face to the barren surface of Southeast Farallon Island-dubbed by sailors in the 1850s the "devil's teeth." There she joined Scot Anderson and Peter Pyle, the two biologists who bunk down during shark season each fall in the island's one habitable building, a haunted, 135-year-old house spackled with lichen and gull guano. Two days later, she got her first glimpse of the famous, terrifying jaws up close and she was instantly hooked; her fascination soon yielded to obsession-and an invitation to return for a full season. But as Casey readied herself for the eight-week stint, she had no way of preparing for what she would find among the dangerous, forgotten islands that have banished every campaign for civilization in the past two hundred years. The Devil's Teeth is a vivid dispatch from an otherworldly outpost, a story of crossing the boundary between society and an untamed place where humans are neither wanted nor needed.
