“Yours”

While I was checking the RSS feeds tonight I read something I just had to share. All of this is credit to the guys at StereoTruth.net. They posted the news tonight that Steven Curtis Chapman will be touring with Michael W. Smith this fall. While that is incredible, it was the next part of their post that struck me tonight. According to their post, Steven has added an additional verse to his new song “Yours” (Coming August 1st to radio). You can read the entire story on the StereoTruth.net site.

When I first heard SCC’s new CD, I was captured by two songs. The first was obviously “Cinderella”. The second was the song “Yours”. There was something in the lyrics about claiming that everywhere and everything belongs to God that hit home with me. Which brings me to their post and the additional lyrics that Steven has added.

I’ve walked the valley of death’s shadow
So deep and dark that I could barely breathe
I’ve had to let go of more than I could bear
And questioned everything that I believe
But still even here
in this great darkness
A comfort and hope come breaking through
As I can say in life or death
God we belong to you.

Knowing what we know, I am not sure how I can read that and not be moved. To say that “the streets of London” or “every child in Africa is yours” seems easy. But to face what Steven and his family have faced and say “it’s yours” is beyond a testimony. It’s beyond my understanding and leaves me evaluating each and everything I count as “mine”.

Lord grant me your grace. I ask your patience as I release anything and everything as yours.

    they tried to do their first show together in michigan on thursday… but had major tech issues with the power going off every time steven got towards the end of the song (ya know… just before he got to some point where he would be able to speak)…. until he literally just starting yelling to the crowd what he wanted to say… (that god is in control, we arent, no matter what.)

    very powerful show, even as little as we saw of it before they cancelled/postponed it

    Thank you for that update. I heard yesterday that Smitty is coming out with his 3rd worship CD in October. The first two were so good. I imagine the friendship and sharing the journey that Michael and Steven have on the road right now is so good for SCC.

    Thanks again.
