Day 30: That Song Y’all Prayed Me Through the Other Night {a guest post at Barbie’s place}

Rooted Final 500 x 500

Happy (almost) Thursday, dear friends!

On this, the next-to-last day of my 31 Days, I am so excited (and I’ll confess: nervous!) to be sharing over in my sweet friend Barbie’s lovely space.

The original plan was for me to write a guest post for Barbie, but try as I might, I simply could not make the words flow. However, when I asked my friends for prayer, the immediate nudge from the Holy Spirit was, Hey girl, this burning in your bones tonight? This isn’t a blog post — it’s a song.

So with my sweet Facebook friends holding me before the Lord, I traded laptop for notebook and guitar… and out came the song I’m sharing via video today at Barbie’s place.

C’mon over and sit before Jesus with me for a few minutes? I’d be so blessed by your presence there, my friends.

      Natalie, thank you so much for watching the video, friend. And for your comment. Sorry you had trouble commenting – it was in my spam box – so, so weird. Thanks for letting me know you’d commented so I could track it down. Your encouragement means so much. ((hugs))

    Thank you Dana! My ladies Bible study group was studying the life of Jacob this week, so the picture of “angels traveling up and down and through that open door” is really grabbing my heart today. “I don’t want to miss this holy ground.” Amen!

      Oh Jolene, that image of Jacob’s dream has just captivated me lately. I love it so much – how he realized – “Surely the Lord is in this place and I didn’t know it…” how he built an altar… and how now, under the new covenant, our entire lives can be jam packed with altars because holy ground is everywhere, all the time, if only we’re aware of His invitations to Holy encounter in all our moments and circumstances…. Anyway – some of the heart behind the song right here for ya. :-) Love to you, friend.

  5. I visited Barbie’s blog and listened to your song. BEAUTIFUL!!! Your worship is so pure. You are going to touch many hearts with the gifts He has give you! In fact, you already are…
