This song was written in about 20 minutes just before I was to sing for a group of homeless folks who were spending the night at my church as part of the Room in the Inn ministry program. I was alone in a room rehearsing the songs I had planned to sing for them when God had something else in mind and gave me this song. It was like taking dictation. I conveyed His message to our guests almost immediately after writing it all down and was trembling as I sang it. It's the closest thing I have ever felt to having God actually speak to me. Truly an amazing experience. Seven years later, “Your Love” became my first major label cut recorded by David Phelps.

The final track on the album, “Your Love,” is a dream come true for a fledgling songwriter. “About seven years ago, this guy came up to my wife in a grocery store parking lot here in the Nashville area and handed her a cassette of this song and said, ‘I wrote this song a while ago and I think your husband would sound great on it,” recalls Phelps. “So she took the cassette and brought it home, and I have hung onto this song for seven years. It has come up at every project that we have done in the past seven years as a possibility but has never fit. Once again I brought it up and everybody just fell in love with it, so I finally get to record this song. It’s an amazing prayer, really a classic kind of song.”
