Pouring Out

There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. ~ Matthew 26:7 

When I read the title of Rebekah A’s post it made me think of a song that my praise team used to sing and it’s been running through my head on and off all day. It’s called Stay Amazed and I put the video we used to practice to at the end.  There’s a bridge that says:

I’m pouring out my praise on You
I’m pouring out my love on You
I’m pouring out my praise on You
I’m pouring out

At the very end there a male who speaks of how as the woman who poured the alabaster box of precious ointment onto Jesus, let us so do with ourselves.  I feel like I have been slacking lately. My battle is over and I’ve just been floating along but…

Lord Jesus,

Right now I pour it all back out on to You. All that I am, all that I will be. Lord, I pour praise, I pour all my love, I pour all that I have within me on You.  You alone deserve my love. You alone deserve all the time and effort I have to give in this world.  I pour all my wants, desires, hope and dreams on You. Give me back whatever You want for me, but hold those things away from me that would only destroy me.  As Abraham who was willing to give You even his beloved son of promise, so I willingly give you all that I have, am, and will be so that You give me what promises You want for me.  I empty myself before You once again, openly here so that those reading might feel inclined to do so themselves and I pray that when they do, they feel Your love flooding over them. May You sweep over them when they fully dedicate it all to You. You amaze me Lord.  I stay amazed and so I pour it all out to You.
