What I’m listening to “Alabaster Box”

These are the lyrics:

The room grew still
As she made her way to Jesus
She stumbles 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
Everything she said was heard
As she poured her love for the Master
From her box of alabaster
And I’ve come to pour
My praise on Him
Like oil from Mary’s alabaster box
Don’t be angry if I wash his feet with my tears
And I 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 love all 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 sin that had me bound
And I spent my days
Poured my life without measure
Into a little treasure box
I’d thought I’d found
Until the day when Jesus came to me
And healed my soul
With the wonder of His touch
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

And I’ve come to pour
My praise on Him
Like oil from Mary’s alabaster box
Don’t be angry if I wash his feet with my tears
And dry them with my hair (my hair)
You weren’t there the night Jesus 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
Oh, you don’t know the cost of my praise
You don’t know the cost of the oil
In my alabaster box

None of us are beyond a broken moment…*pressing the replay button*

What I’m listening to

20131106-093234.jpg

“Power of Love” by Darlene Zschech

These are the lyrics:

Lord I come to You

Let my heart be changed, renewed

Flowing from the grace

That I’ve found in You Lord

I’ve come to know

The weaknesses I see in me

Will be stripped away

By the power of Your love

Hold me close

Let Your love surround me

Bring me near

Draw me to Your side

And as I wait I’ll rise up like the eagle

And I will soar with You Your Spirit leads me on

By the power of Your love

Lord unveil my eyes

Let me see You face to face

The knowledge of Your love

As You live in me

Lord renew my mind

As Your will unfolds in my life

In living every day

By the power of Your love

And I will soar with You

Your Spirit leads me on

By the power of Your love

I’m going to be a little hood right now…YESSS, GOD! This song is the truth right here! Totally my prayer right now. When I heard the song play on Pandora this morning, I immediately thought of the scripture I found in my pocket on Monday *side eye, Jesus, side eye!* I think Pandora played this song just for me LOL. Today my prayer is that God will remove the veil over my eyes so that I may see the truth. Not the adjusted truth of what is merely in front of me but an aerial view. Amen!

“Victoria Christopher Murray” Interview

It’s amazing what God can do. One day your reading one your favorite author’s books and the next minute your talking to them about your favorite characters, upcoming projects and the inspiration behind their writing. It was an amazing experience that I would not trade! Victoria Christopher Murray is a well of wisdom and I’m so honored she took the time to meet with me! I hope you all enjoy the interview as much I did!

*Side note: Sorry about the noise in the background! You grab those interviews when you can LOL
