Imagine you’re hiking up an incredibly steep hill. You are climbing a nearly vertical staircase and each step seems to bring you no closer to the top. You’re exhausted and ready to give up, wondering, is what is waiting at the top really worth it?
Kathy Davis endured such a climb in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado and discovered that what awaited her at the top was completely worth the physical and mental strain as nothing, but the beauty of God’s creation awaited her arrival. Climbs are not only meant to define a literal journey taken, but also figurative and spiritual ones taken throughout the course of one’s life. No life will ever have a straight and narrow path. There will always be climbs, curves, and plateaus to prevent anyone from reaching what they want; yet there is a solution to overcoming them: God.
Life is a Learning Curve is Davis’s guide to helping any and all who wish to study the various curves that appear in life and conquer them with the aid of the Holy Spirit. Readers will learn about three different shapes these curves can take:
• A Bell Curve – ups, downs, some steep angles, some rounded peaks, and some sharply pointed peaks
• A Winding Road – some ups and downs, delays, detours, distractions, and frustrating repeating patterns
• A Perpetual Plateau – the mundane, feelings of drudgery, and no progress
There will be countless times when the curve someone is on does not make sense. Winding paths seem endless, weariness settles in for the long haul, optimism fades, and it seems discouragement is a constant companion. It is precisely there that Holy Spirit of God comes along – by invitation – and provides comforting guidance. Now is the time to confront the curve head on and learn how to “grow again” with His help.
