BELONG and BE LOVED!

– A personal message from Sylane Mack –
Dearest Partner in Grace,
We all want to BELONG. We want to belong to something bigger than ourselves where we are truly loved, deeply understood and fully accepted. We want to belong where we are respected and, therefore, safe enough to be lovingly and truthfully corrected and guided. We want to belong where our mistakes and sins will be fully forgiven and never used against us.
Yet, in all these ways, at some level, all people fail us. Families fail us. Friends fail us. The Faithful fail us. We fail all others.
This sense of true belonging – of being truly, perfectly LOVED – is offered only from our Eternal Abba, who has compellingly revealed His unfailing, incomprehensible Love for us through the sacrifice and resurrection of His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ – to whom, by faith, we belong forever!
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name! [Now that’s belonging!]
I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that you being rooted and established in love [belonging in God’s Love!!], may have power, together with all the saints [all our brothers and sisters in Christ], to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:14-19
May each of us choose to trust and live in the freeing and empowering truth that we BELONG to God’s family! May we, then, choose to actively and intentionally offer Christ’s Love more fully, more compassionately and more mercifully to all those around us, who desperately desire to BELONG and BE LOVED…just like us.

                        Giving Thanks For Every Door God Opens!  
June 20 – Sylane is so thankful to have been an “ALSO” speaker during a Plenary Session of the Transform MidAtlantic 2013 Biennial Leadership Conference, held at Grace Point Church, Newtown, PA. God answered our prayers in an amazing way as “the powerful truth of GOD’s unfailing love and transforming grace [was] unflinchingly spoken by Sylane and passionately embraced.”
It is all about the Message from the Master, not about the minutes the messenger has!

                  Some Upcoming Events to be lifting in PRAYER!
September 14-21 – Sylane will be in Colorado for some special events.
