Roll Your Rock

Roll Your Rock

You look at the huge lump of stone you've been given, and your knees begin to shake. You'll never get that thing up the hill!

The mythological character Sysiphus was condemned to roll a heavy rock up a steep hill. Every time he got to the top of the hill, his strength would give out and the rock would roll right back down to the bottom. Doesn’t life feel like this sometimes? That rock is often not taken away from us, because we live in a world that is full of sin and evil. Mostly we simply don't know why the burden was placed upon uis. But Christians know that God can lend you His strength when yours is gone. In this book I have collected 100 devotions that — and this is my prayer — could make that heavy burden a little bit lighter.

Turn to God for strength and inspiration by meditating on His Word and praying.

When you're ready, He will take your rock away.

About the Author
Gerhard Venter

Gerhard Venter used to pray, "Lord, please put me in a position where I can write full-time." So God gave him chronic back pain, which forced him to quit his job; helped him complete a masters degree in theology at Emory University in Atlanta; relocated him to a small house in the Northeast Georgia mountains; surrounded him with animals and grandchildren; and said, "Okay. Now write."
Not knowing what else to do, he wrote about chronic pain. "Slay Your Pain Giant," first published in 2012 as "Through Pain to Victory," was the result. The book was part of how he was delivered from the never-ending pain, and it has always been his prayer that the book helped others too. Gerhard was born and educated in South Africa and came to the United States with his family in 1996. He is a successful radio scriptwriter and has published several short stories in national magazines. He wrote and co-wrote four stage plays that were successfully performed.
In the meantime, the small adventures of a small farm never cease. Imagine working on a novel with an angry goat battering at the front door.
