Morning start...


I hear the little voice in my head.  I try in vain to bury it beneath the warm covers...it's been a long night.  After its gentle nudging, its grown impatient and its yelling at me like a clanging alarm...

"Get up Laurel...you're gonna miss this!"

I dress, plug in my iPhone music and I'm off. And somewhere after the first hill, I see it.  Stephen Curtis Chapman is playing in my ear. I raise my pointing finger to the sky and sing my heart out.


YOURS
Stephen Curtis Chapman

I walk the streets of London
And notice in the faces passing by
Something that makes me stop and listen
My heart grows heavy with the cry
Where is the hope for London?
You whisper and my heart begins to soar
As I'm reminded
Every street in London in Yours, oh yes, it is

I walk the dirt roads of Uganda
I see the scars that war has left behind
Hope like the sun is fading
They're waiting for a cure no one can find
And I hear children's voices singing
Of a God who heals and rescues and restores
And I'm remindedThat every child in Africa is Yours
And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky
To the depths of the ocean floor
And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
You're the Maker and Keeper
Father and Ruler of everything,
it's all Yours

And I walk the sidewalks of Nashville
Singapore, Manila and ShanghaiI b
rush by the beggar's hand and the wealthy man
And everywhere I look I realize
That just like the streets of London
For every man and woman, boy and girl
All of creation
This is our Father's world
And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky
To the depths of the ocean floor
And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
You're the Maker and Keeper
Father and Ruler of everything
It's all Yours, God
It's all Yours, God
It's all Yours, God
It's all Yours, God
