If there’s anything that’s been formed like iron in our spirits, the main theme Holy Spirit’s singing through these last couple months ~
G O D G I V E S V I C T O R Y
He gives and gives and gives.
He doesn’t withhold Himself.
When your child stops breathing in the middle of the night.
He gives His hand at work to save her.
As she lays in a bed supported by a respirator.
He gives perspective, she’s breathing!
In the midst of a cancer diagnosis.
He gives courage to fight with tools you otherwise would never choose to use.
When you need to worship.
He gives songs to your friends, they sing them with you in the PICU.
When she needs a tumor to dissipate in order for her to breathe on her own.
He gives miracles faster than medicine can explain.
When you need sugar levels to straighten up.
He gives answers to prayer.
There’s setbacks like bloodclots and hospital stays.
He gives grace.
As you pray and grieve with friends whose newborn passes into eternity.
He gives comfort and peace.
As you receive news, no cancer can be found.
He gives joy unspeakable.
When your child is supposed to be showing signs of fatigue, loss of appetite, she’s expected to be at her worst.
He gives supernatural strength, He gives wellness to the doctor’s surprise: she’s acting like an average healthy three year old.
No matter the end to this story,
He has already given Allora victory from the beginning.
We can’t boast anything of our own, it’s been given by our Father.
So don’t mind me while I shout His glory over
I kinda can’t contain this wild excitement over what Jesus has given us,
what He’s given you.
It’s not just for us, not just for Allora,
He’s offered it to you too.
His victory over death, His victory over sickness, His victory over fear, His victory over everything that could ever come against the human frame…
He came to give us life to the fullest.
Whatever you’re facing,
He will give you all you need & more.
That’s our God.
He gives victory in all things.
Allora’s name means God gives victory.
Every day He’s unpacking it to us and He proves it couldn’t be more true.
