Alabaster Box: Know your worth regardless of what the world says

20111223-202823.jpg
“O praise Your holy name for you are worthy of it all. No one knows the cost of our Alabaster Box, the oil within that holds the deepest feelings and praises that are poured out upon your feet. Tears shed, heart-cries and pains that ache so much have been wrapped in your precious love. This world doesn’t know unconditional love; only judgement and criticism. You see past that and save. Forgiving and encouraging us to live in You and for you. Sin is remembered no more by God. Thank you Jesus. You are forever worthy of great praises.”

Mary’s Alabaster Box

With the love and forgiveness of the Savior my friends, do not let this world’s view or opinion of your past/present sins dictate who you are in Christ. If He has forgiven you, then LIVE in freedom and not bondage. Praise the Lord through your tears, your shame and pain. Go before his feet and let it all out. God is for you. What love you will find when He wraps his arms around you! Hold on and hang in there. You are victorious in Christ Jesus. Walk with your head held high and press on. No one, I mean NO ONE can place you in heaven or hell but God himself. Pick and choose what you will allow to reside in your thoughts and life. I pray it’s Jesus all the way! Think on the goodness of the Lord. He’s brought you a mighty long way. Pour your praises on Him. He’s WORTHY!!

My prayers and support are with you. I am a friend who will stand by your side and help you carry the weight. For who am I to judge? I’m not God. My job is to love you and be of assistance the best I know how in Christ. Praise the Lord and live! Life is too short. Let go and let God.

In Christ be blessed, strengthened and encouraged.

Scripture References: Luke 7:36-50 tells the story of the woman with the alabaster box. It was her faith that saved her. She did it and so can you! Be of good courage.

Lyrics to Alabaster Box

The room grew still
As she made her way to Jesus
She stumbled through the tears that made her blind
She felt such pain
Some spoke in anger
Heard folks whisper
There’s no place here for her kind
Still on she came
Through the shame that flushed her face
Until at last, she knelt before his feet
And though she spoke no words
Every tear she she shed was heard
As she poured her love for the Master
From her box of Alabaster

Chorus:
And I’ve come to pour
My praise on Him-like oil
From Mary’s alabasterbox
Don’t be angry if I wash His feet with my tears
And dry them with my hair
You weren’t there-the night He found me
You did not feel what I felt
When He wrapped His loving arms around me
And you don’t know the cost
Of the oil in my alabaster box

I can’t forget
The way life used to be
I was a prisoner
To the sins that had me bound
I spent my days
Poured my life-without measure
Into a little treasure box
I thought I had found
Until the day-when Jesus came to me
And healed my soul
With the wonders of-His love
So now I’m giving back to Him
All the praise He’s worthy of
I’ve been forgiven
And that’s why
I love Him so much

Repeat Chorus

Wellspring At His Feet

20111117-072920.jpg

When you’ve come to that place along your journey, when you just don’t know what’s what, it is at the feet of Jesus you will find peace and understanding.

Make the time to rest in the Lord; GIVE him priority each and every day. Too many times we get caught up in the busyness of life that we don’t slow down and seek His presence. Not just to bring our problems to Him, but to gain some wisdom, discernment, and knowledge. We need intimate time with the Lord for ONLY he can give us what this world can’t.

For me………… it’s my wellspring. It’s my quiet time that I NEED with the Savior. I have to drop everything else and be at his feet, absorbing all that is imparted. I rather be a Mary in a Martha world. ( read Luke10:38-42 )

May my heart over my actions preside; to choose the better part. That’s where I want to be more and more each day. Don’t you? We can’t live in this world and do right without Him.

Welcome Jesus into your day giving of your first-fruits. There’s no time like the present time. He should be first in our planner/agenda book written in ink, not pencil. God has breathed life into you yet another day. How awesome is that?!!

” O Father, I thank you for be a loving father to us all even when we don’t deserve it. It’s by Your grace that we are here. Your precious Son is the Teacher, willing and able to share with us how to live a godly life. By help of Your Holy Spirit we are able to make a decision and choose the better part before the anxieties of this world scoop us up and blindsight us to the blessings in our day. I pray for my friends that they too will draw from the Living Well. No greater refreshing will ever be found. Anoint the heads of Your children that we may go out into a new day shining the Light of your glory. Blessed be your name in all the earth. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen “

Proverbs 16:21-23 NKJV
“The wise in heart will be called prudent, And sweetness of the lips increases learning. Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it. But the correction of fools is folly. The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, And adds learning to his lips.”
