Name your price for this book - today only!
Drake Sanders has a great life. He enjoys his job, is planning to marry the woman he loves and has a low golf handicap. An editor of a small daily on the North Carolina coast, he is investigating a bizarre murder, with possible supernatural overtones. He is also akin to Job, for the powers of darkness have been ordered to kill or destroy him. In a short time, he will be dealing with murderous locals, professional hit men, corrupt businessmen and demonic entities.
Like Job, he has three friends. Harry Denton is a reporter and an intercessor who has insight into spiritual matters. Tiffany Sanderson is a broadcaster who lost a local beauty pageant because it was rigged. Tracy Sundelin is an intelligent 13-year-old girl with incredible faith. They will be drawn into the battle and their lives too will be on the line. As the vultures of evil circle, a cosmic conflict of good vs. evil will ensue.
As the battle wages, there is no mercy asked and no quarter given. Even for 13-year-old Tracy, it is kill or be killed. The four desperately hope, and believe, that God will not stand silent in a time of crisis. The novel is not only a suspenseful thriller, it also re-examines beliefs about the Book of Job in light of modern revelation and provides the reader with scriptural insight.
George L. Duncan is an avid golfer but his game was nowhere near good enough for the PGA tour, so he turned to writing. He has been a reporter, editor and editorial writer for a variety of newspapers including the Savannah Morning News and the Harrisonburg (VA) Daily News. Currently, he is a novelist with five books on the market. His latest is “At Play in the Seas of the Lord,” a modern-day treasure hunting tale. A native of Florida, he now lives in Colorado with his wife Denise, two cats, two dogs and a horse.
In this blog, I am referring to people who work hard and at some stage in their lives become tired and feel depressed. I am not referring to clinically depressed people in this blog, if you are facing clinical depression, please consult with your doctor. Psalm 42: 6 (AMP) “O my God, my soul is in despair within me [the burden more than I can bear]; therefore I will [fervently] remember You from the land of the Jordan and the peaks of [mount] Hermon, from Mount Mizar.” In our lives, I believe everybody struggles with a form of depression. One of the reasons I suffer from feeling depressed is when I am tired. I have too much on my plate and struggle to fall asleep. In the morning I get out of bed feeling miserable and not able to function normally. Tiredness is one of the culprits for depression. Psalm 62: 1 You know they say God convicts us and the devil condemns us. I believe sin is another culprit and when we sin we struggle with guilt feelings which turn into depression. The best way to…
Psalm 138: 1 ESVGive Thanks to the LORDOf David“I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods, I sing your praise;” LORD my God if I have any iniquity in heart, soul or mind, humbly I ask please forgive me. I want to come into Your presence and bring You praise. It’s another Thursday and I wanted to bring praise and honour to the LORD my God for all the blessings in my own life. I am grateful for the good husband God has given me, I am grateful for two stepchildren which I can teach about the Lord God. I am grateful for my own three children and my three beautiful granddaughters. God has been faithful in that He watches over my children each and every day. (Stepchildren, own children and my granddaughters). I can only stand before God with a heart full of praise, I can only say thank You Lord for all the good things I have. I bow myself down before You LORD my God and I want to give You thanks. LORD thank You for Your steadfast love and Your faithfulness. LORD God, Yo…
1 Peter 5: 7 (NIV) Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. One thing I have been focusing on is protecting my family from the use of drugs. Drugs have been a devastating evil in my life. The fear that accompanies drugs can make anyone paranoid. I recall the screaming, fighting and crying. Begging and constant fear for the next day. The violence that accompanies drugs can destroy anybody's faith in humankind. The steps I have taken to protect my family is to make sure they understand what drugs can do to your body, mind and your environment. Today we strive to live in a comfortable environment where we feel safe and secure. No one is out to get you. No hidden agenda's. Life is simple and peaceful. I strive to contribute a peaceful and stable environment. I am learning to settle in and trust people. I would not say it is easy but because there is love in our home we carry on. I have been trusting God's promises and allowing God to work in His time. I used to liv…
