Alabaster Box - What the Meaning of this Song?

imagesAlabaster Box - Cece Winas; We all know this song. But what's the real meaning? Here is the lyrics of the song.

"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 ..... "

  1. An awakening reality of who unconditional Love in its purest-realest forms is, and the consequent choice to come home in surrender and adulation at the incredible love and commitment we've received from Him....
