The presence of God


She sees love

For the first time

She feels accepted not judged

She is forgiven

She sees  her saviour

She feels peace, like she had never felt before

He smiles

A genuine smile, no hidden agenda

Just love, pure love

The Son of God

She hears His voice

Calling out to her

“Child, I love you.”


Streaming down her face

His feet are wet from her tears

She must dry them

She dries them with her hair

What a mess!

She cannot not stop the tears from flowing

She kisses His feet, trying to pull herself together

He loves her

He is going to die for her

Her saviour

Her redeemer

The oil

Expensive, sweet smelling oil

But it is worth it

She pours out not only the oil on Him

But her love, her heart

“Child, your sins are forgiven, go in peace.”

Amazing love

His presence has drawn her close

She is in the presence of the almighty God

This is her saviour

Her Lord

Her redeemer

The Son of God

Oh His beautiful presence.

a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table.
