Anticipating Autumn

Photo by Lukas Haffele by Michelle Key, oneLifemaps Facilitator In God’s created world there are seasons that continually recycle throughout the year and return again and again.  There are times of drought, dormancy, root-deepening, new growth and fruit-bearing.  As humans, our spiritual lives too can be characterized by a series of stages that lead us toward fullness, wholeness, maturity and transformation. Each season has its mixed bag of harvest and loss.  I am in such a season at this time in my life.  Through God's leading, my husband and I have downsized.

Spring’s Command

photo by Mary Kelley by Carol Steffens Stillness. Seeds from fruitful plants buried in the ground waiting for spring's command. There have been times when I have felt without Christ's presence and direction in my life. Much like the cold, dark days of winter, when nature's colors turn black and white, I have felt frozen and alone...waiting for an audible word or visible sign from God. Instead, came the whisper, "Be still....." You've [...]

Warning: Check Engine Light

by Kate Cogswell, oneLifemaps Facilitator When I turned the key in my van recently, the engine turned on but so did my check engine light.  This wasn't the first time it lit up, but it had been a while.  I had somewhere to be, so I told myself it probably wasn't anything serious and kept driving. Several days later when the check engine light caught my attention again, I dismissed my concern yet told myself [...]

You’ve Got Mail

Photo by Unsplash by Julie Thomas, oneLifemaps Facilitator “Our challenge is to unmask the divine in the natural and name the presence of God in our lives.” This quote from David Benner's book, The Gift of Being Yourself, is also an opening quote in the 'Reviewing My Days' map instructions. But what does it mean? This spring I received an email from a lady in my bible study group that began to help [...]

Choose Life

by Kim Nielsen, oneLifemaps Facilitator The Lenten season is a time of returning to the Lord. We create space to seek God and cultivate our relationship in a more intentional way. For my training in spiritual transformation and direction, the focus this quarter is on discernment. Discernment is simply the process of becoming more aware of God’s presence, activity and will for our lives and responding faithfully to it. Pursuing God more intentionally and discernment [...]

Savor

by Joan Kelley, Director of Facilitator Development and oneLifemaps Facilitator “Taste and see that the Lord is good!”  Psalm 34:8 Tonight John and I went to dinner at a little bistro by our house.  I grew up on a farm.  We ate a lot of meat and potatoes, not rich foods drizzled with fancy sauces served in tiny portions.  I had no idea what a bistro was until I was about 30 years old.  At that time, [...]

God’s Humor

by Nancy Byker, oneLifemaps Facilitator ....and a humble reminder of His presence. It’s Monday morning and I dial into a LTML facilitator conference call. As I introduced my joining the conversation, Sibyl asked if my view included looking at the mountains. I offered a quick reply, “No. I am sitting where the sun is shining.” I was hoping to soak in the last warmth of the waning days of fall in the mountains, while listening [...]

Summer Lake Meditation

By Linda Holmes, Spiritual Director “He leads me to calm waters.” Psalm 23:3 NCV As you look at the picture... Reflect on the height and depth of His love… Ponder His peace and presence… Stand firm as summer’s storm steals into the picture… Listen for His whisper in the wind… wait… watch… wonder… All creation cries out, “I AM here!” Riding on the edge of clouds, Dancing on azure pools of water, Waving from every [...]

Practice Hope

  Photo by: Sharon Swing Quote by: Steve Garmaas-Holmes Have you ever felt hopeless? Not knowing what to do? Not able to see ahead? Wanting some direction? I wonder how God might be calling you to practice hope in this season. I wonder what he might be revealing to you in the midst of your day about yourself, about others, about His deep love for you. Take some time to sit in his [...]
