SONG OF THE WEEK: Alabaster Box by Cece Winans

Do you know the story of the woman that washed Jesus’ feet with her tears, wiped them with her hair and anointed His feet with expensive oil?  Love that story.  Love this song.  Cece Winans pours her whole self into this song about a woman that gives everything- her past, her shame, her fear- at the feet of Jesus.  Cece does an amazing job of revealing not only the heart of this woman at Jesus feet but our heart as we lay at His feet as well.  Look at the lyrics:

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

Who are we to judge others and who are we to judge ourselves?

Listen to Cece Winans belt this song out from the depth of her Spirit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YksTJKm9hQ4
