Jesus, You paint a picture of my life that transcends time.
Circumstances here on earth cannot hold up to the painting of You in my life.
Resources may seem tenuous, situations hopeless, success beyond my reach,
But Your overlay of my life proves miraculous because Your resources and storehouses are limitless, Your love is for eternities.

Satiated Heart



Deeply these urgings draw me to come nearer, closer to God.
Breaking the chains that bind
His presence quickening my heart.

The Holy Spirit is soothing and gives me cravings –
I hunger and thirst like never before;
Of Scripture, His throne, His greatness – to know Him more.

Opening the Bible, I feel the Truth, His glory cannot be denied.
The tangible essence of the Creator comes through the pages,
His Word reaches my heart, and once again I’m fed.

Heavenly Father,

Draw us nearer to You, let us feel Your presence.  Write Your signature
on our hearts in such a way that it gives us Your peace.

In Jesus’ name we pray,


Thoughts of the Lord’s Prayer

Thoughts of the Lord’s Prayer

As my husband and I were flying home from a trip the singing of the Lord’s Prayer suddenly came into my mind.  And then, the Holy Spirit suggested that I get a pen and paper because we were going to break down the Lord’s Prayer into segments and write some thoughts about each segment.  I have placed the Lord’s Prayer next in its entirety and then the prayer in the segments that the Holy Spirit gave to me.  Blessings, Dana.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our debts/trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.

What follows next is the inspired writing that the Holy Spirit gave to me for the Lord’s Prayer.

 Our Father
Your Father
My Father
The Father of all

Who art
Present with you and me

In Heaven
At peace in His position of Lord of All

Hallowed be
All honor and glory forever

Thy name
Is love and power that covers us

Thy kingdom
Is forever
Resides inside of us
Is majestic

Now to all who are weary and heavy ladened

Thy will
God’s determination of joy for you and me

Be done
Be it unto us as You have spoken

On earth
Throughout all Your creation

As it is

In heaven
Our home
My home

Give us this day
Right now and all the day through because we trust You

Our daily bread
You, Lord are faithful in Your provisions and love

And forgive us our debts/trespasses
Where we’ve robbed and cheated You and others and harmed ourselves

As we forgive our debtors
(those who trespass against us)
So that we do not take up any offenses

And lead us
By Your righteous hand

Not into temptation
You are kind, understanding, and have mercy upon us

But deliver us from evil
For You only can save us

For Thine is the kingdom
Heaven and all belong to You

And the power
You alone are in control

And the glory
The honored Presence

Now and eternally
