This Holy Ground (A Song) – Featured Writer Dana Butler
Hello, sweet friends! This week has found me trying, trying, and trying again to wrangle and wrap words around deep, burning places inside me, to compose a coherent, authentic piece to share with you here.
And the more I tried, the more “blocked” I felt.
Blocked, that is, until I asked for prayer on my personal Facebook wall. And y’all? My friends instantly surrounded me. 40 plus women covered me and my writing process in prayer that evening. I was undone by the support.
And within just minutes, I knew: The burning in my bones? It wasn’t a blog post. It was a song.
A song which Barbie has graciously given me permission to share here with you today, via raw, unedited iPhone video.
So today I’m thankful for Barbie’s kind hospitality, and honored to be here with you all, inviting you into my heart before Jesus. May this offering be a pleasing fragrance to His heart, and a blessing to yours, my friends.
This Holy Ground
All I know to do
Is bleed this fiery love all over you
To lie here on this floor
Watch the angels trav’ling up and down
And through that open door
To and from the heavens
Surely you are in this place
And you are stirring me awake
And if the greatest danger’s living
Only half awake and half aware
Of a dimming flame
Then let there be a shaking
Let awakening reach into my very core
‘Cause I’m alive for more
God I burn for more
And I don’t wanna miss this holy ground
