The Alabaster Box

Posted Monday, March 26, 2012, at 1:19 PM

At the banquet egos were being fed
As Jesus struggled with what lay ahead

Everyone had their agendas and plans
Not focusing on GOD's kingdom but on man's

Even the servants were too proud to wash feet
As each person struggled to get the best seat

Jesus' reputation and loneliness had grown
Though surrounded by admirers He was alone

A beautiful woman quietly entered the room
In her spirit she could sense the impending doom

Too often Jesus had "one-upped"" a Pharisee
She knew well their cold hearts and treachery

Then she saw Jesus in the midst of the crowd
Each demand for His attention was quite loud

When she looked into His eyes she could feel the pain
Of the used and abused and see its' awful stain

Tears began to fall as she came near
Her love for Jesus greater than her fear

All that she had was in an alabaster box
She broke the seal and unlocked the locks

Pouring it all on Jesus the fragrance was sweet
Then with her tears and her hair she washed His feet

As time stood still Jesus blessed her with this
"Thank-you for seeing what is easy to miss

For understanding what I am going thru
The love you are seeking finally found you"

As soon as she left the murmuring began
Why this waste she should have had a plan

Lavishly giving where there is no need
Thinly disguising their selfishness and greed

And then Jesus spoke...

"I had many needs that were unmet
What this woman has done do not forget"

I have the heart of a poet, the eye of an artist, and dress like a bum. I am no one important. No title, no position, no authority. Just a normal person. But I know Jesus. And Jesus knows me. And this relationship has changed my life and continues to change my life. I have no desire to be known but great desire for others to know Jesus. I would like to blog about Jesus, christian living, church, hurting, hope. I do not want to lead this blog but follow it wherever it leads.
