Songfacts®:

  • This song relates the perspective of the innkeeper who turned Mary and Joseph away during the Christmas story. Brandon Heath explained: "God is often giving us opportunities we don't realize the significance of, but we just need to say yes. God can do things though ordinary people. Mary was just a girl, but she was also a catalyst in a huge event in the rest of history."
