"He is the Word ever writing upon our hearts and minds! He writes new revelation and wonders of who He is on willing hearts!"

Words of Encouragement & News – Sept 2019


Matthew 26:6-13 NAS
Now when Jesus was in Bethany, at the home of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume, and she poured it on His head as He reclined at the table. But the disciples were indignant when they saw this, and said, “Why this waste? For this perfume might have been sold for a high price and the money given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me. 11 For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me. 12 For when she poured this perfume on My body, she did it to prepare Me for burial. 13 Truly I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her.”

She poured forth perfume
Costly extravagance revealed
Why this waste?
She had caught a glimpse
A sliver of Light – revelation
From sitting at His Feet
An understanding
Who will waste himself on and for ME
And how can I do anything less
than take what her world said was her security
and lavish it all
Extravagantly on Him
Pouring forth
She declared in her actions
YOU are my security
YOU are more valuable than silver and gold…
I WILL waste it all on You
My worship with all of my ‘future’
From a heart that by Your very Spirit
YOU enlightened and enlarged
Not for more things or for notoriety
But for YOU
Extravagance revealed through the heart of one whose eyes had been opened
She saw Eternity’s Kiss
And she bent down and poured in grateful devotion
Man called it wasteful
The One whose opinion matter called it
An eternal message of pure love that would echo through time and space
resounding over and over
Here I am
Here I come to pour
To offer
Every part of me
Everything else I trusted in
I ask for nothing in return
For I have had a glimpse of PROMISE
I see with the eyes of my heart
I know I can pour because
I AM YOURS now and for all eternity
Slavery within – crushed that day
Liberty and Love’s Fragrance flowed
As an offering received and recorded in Heaven
The death of worldly security of man’s opinion
Extravagant worship
Captured His Heart in that moment
Preparing Him not only for His physical death on the cross
But the betrayal coming in the garden
One followed – for political and religious gain
This one (Mary) worshipped just to be near Him again,
One more time AT HIS FEET
And her posture of being poured out
Helped prepare His Heart for the pain about to strike it –
Both had access
Up close access
One entered in
The other stayed at a distance
Betrayed with a kiss
On the cheek
But MARY prepared Him with humble pouring
And kisses and tears
At His Feet
Extravagance prepared the way for betrayal’s kiss
30 pieces of silver versus – her LIFE SAVINGS
Who do you say I AM?
You can only offer your all
When HE is your everything
Extravagance revealed!

“Pictures painted with words, sounds that come alive, rhythms and patterns that defy the natural, revelation that jumps off the page or settles deep inside.” – Cathy
