John 12:1-3, “Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.” (NIV)
Proverbs 23:26, “O my son, give me your heart. May your eyes take delight in following my ways.” (NLT)
Luke 9:23-24, “Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. (NLT)

In your devotional time with the Lord, use the three songs that we have suggested. Allow His presence to overtake you as you pour yourself out before Him. Place no time limit on this encounter. Break open your alabaster heart, remove all distractions, and give Him the attention His worthiness deserves.
