The Anthem of our Faith (a music video by my man)

Isaac and I have gone through quite a bit together. We've moved from country to country, had our car stolen, experienced life threatening illnesses and more. But without a doubt, it was the attack on our baby's health that nearly crushed us.

This time, even turning to each other didn't ease the pain or the horror. There was only one place to turn for hope- God. During all the poking and prodding, and even before there was a diagnosis made on our little one, Isaac clung to a specific word for our daughter.

Psalm 61

Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.

From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.

I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

For you have heard my vows, O God;
you have given me the heritage of those
who fear your name.

Increase the days of the king's life,
his years for many generations.

May he be enthroned in God's presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.

Then will I ever sing praise to your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.

Isaac turned that psalm into his song. Literally. As Katy seized or lay absently from us in her bed, he would sing these words over her little life. For months, he couldn't get through the song without breaking down and crying. That song was our anthem, and we believed it whole heartedly.

As a declaration of faith over our daughter's healing, Isaac and I became very public about Katy's testimony (hence this blog), saying that no matter where she was at today, the whole world would stand in awe and see God's faithfulness over our lives. We challenged people to stick around and watch a miracle unfold in front of their very eyes. Then, Isaac would sing his song.

Every time he played his song, hundred's of people began to respond in faith for the miracle that they needed. Pretty soon, people began to ask if Isaac's music was recorded. Seeing the need for this message to get out, we recorded Isaac's first CD.

It hasn't even been one year since its release, yet nearly one thousand CDs have been sold. As a natural consequence, hundreds of people have contacted us to tell us how Katy's story and Isaac's song helped them believe for their miracle as well. As of now, Isaac has toured the entire country of Mexico and shared his music and our testimony more times than we can count. In April, he will be performing in a concert for about five thousand people.

The following is Isaac's video for Psalm 61. To think it all started over a crib with tears streaming down his face...

Although the video is in Spanish, you can read the lyrics in Psalm 61. The intro says

"This is a song that came at a time of few answers. We stood powerless over our daughters future, upon knowing her diagnosis: She would not walk or talk..."
