Glory be to our great GOD!

Our Great God-Fernando Ortega

I struggle to find the words right now to express how I am feeling. This week has been one of affirmation and confirmation. I could type out a long blog about what the Lord is doing in the life of my family, but I feel like my words will not be able to accurately describe HIS glory. There has been a heavy yoke broken this week. Actually, Sunday was the day I felt like it broke. It felt as if the spirit of heaviness we have been carrying for so long was finally demolished.

The only way I know to explain what the Lord has done in our hearts is by this song and this scripture passage.

Ephesians 2 (ESV)
By Grace Through Faith
2 jAnd you were kdead in the trespasses and sins lin which you once walked, following the course of this world, following mthe prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in nthe sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in othe passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body1 and the mind, andpwere by nature qchildren of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But2God, being rrich in mercy, sbecause of the great love with which he loved us, even twhen we were dead in our trespasses, umade us alive together with Christ—vby grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and wseated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable xriches of his grace in ykindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For zby grace you have been saved athrough faith. And this isbnot your own doing; cit is the gift of God, dnot a result of works,eso that no one may boast. 10 For fwe are his workmanship, gcreated in Christ Jesus hfor good works, iwhich God prepared beforehand,jthat we should walk in them.
