From the Top to the Bottom

A part of me wanted to enter into the process because the other maps in the ‘Listen to My Life’ process had been so helpful. But I also felt afraid. The past was laden with negative experiences around these two words. Unmet longings had left me feeling discouraged and wondering why I would bother noting [...]

The Every Day Love of Christmas

by Cheri Hudspith, oneLifemaps Facilitator I’ve been asking the Lord a lot of questions about the meaning of love the last four or five years.  Recently, I realized that when many Christians speak of the love of God they often speak of it in the past tense.  They express awe over Christ’s willingness to love us by dying on the cross or acknowledge it when considering his decision to give up heaven to come to [...]

Is God Sovereign?

by Cheri Hudspith, oneLifemaps Facilitator I stopped writing for a while. It wasn't because I lacked time to write. I found myself in a bit of a mess. I couldn't put the pieces together enough to write about them. I was walking through a valley experience. If I had been writing, I’d have said things like: I'm confused. I don't understand pain and suffering. It really ticks me off that the world is so broken [...]

Forgotten Invitations

By Cheri Hudspith, oneLifemaps Facilitator I don’t know about you, but I have a stubborn and rebellious heart.  This summer I was reminded how true this is.  When I left a training program in June, I was working through Steve Macchia’s book called Crafting a Rule of Life.  Numerous times during that process I was aware of something God was inviting me to consider - a daily time of silence. Once I put the book [...]

Naming Your Dreams

By Cheri Hudspith, oneLife Maps Facilitator and Director of Leadership Development with the Evangelical Center for Spiritual Wisdom A year ago, I wrote the following in a post about naming desires and longings: I ask God for humble courage. I ask God, above all things, to give me a heart that wants what His heart wants and to let go of expectations. I name my dreams/desires/longings. God, if you are asking me what I would [...]

A Picture of Truth

By Cheri Hudspith, oneLife Maps Facilitator I have written before about why my heart was not open to sharing with God my desires and longings. God has been moving me from fear to faith in increasing amounts on that subject for a while now. One of the ways this is happening is the Lord has been surprising me with gifts that perfectly match who I am without me even asking for them. Recently, this came [...]

Seeing Things Differently

By Cheri Hudspith, oneLife Maps Facilitator Have you ever been aware when God is trying to show you a new way of looking at something? This happened to me. I was getting ready to facilitate the Valley Experience Map with a small group and I enjoy facilitating out of a fresh and recent experience with the Lord more than the retelling of something from my distant past. As I was praying about this, I sensed the [...]

A Glimmer of Hope

by Cheri Hudspith, oneLife Maps Facilitator Here is the blunt truth about my first reaction to the Desires and Longings Map: “I’m not going to like doing this map. I don’t dream. I think other people are good at dreaming. I’m not one of them.” If I had not committed to going through all of the maps with a friend, I believe there is a real possibility that I would have skipped this one. However, [...]

From Discontentment to Gratitude

By Cheri Hudspith, oneLifemaps Facilitator Last fall, I was troubled by the fact that I could not arrive at a contented place in a very big part of my life. I wanted desperately to live without the tension and burden of discontentment. I noticed that when I talked about the future, my voice was filled with angst and struggle. It was not the voice of a trusting daughter. I desire to be a trusting daughter of [...]
