Ministry and Prayer Updates – May 2014

Dearest Partner in Grace,
As we continue to minister to others through counseling appointments and conference speaking, we are more and more aware of the deep need for, the gift of, and the power of God’s Word to speak into each of our hearts and lives! God’s Word fills our souls and heals, restores and transforms our lives! God’s love, grace and truth are made known in His living and active Word – and God’s Sovereign and Intimate purpose for each of us is revealed!

“Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live…
As the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:2-3; 10-11

Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory,
are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory
2 Corinthians 3:17-18

Where We’ve Been! Celebrating God’s Love and Transforming Grace!
April 25-27Sylane spoke at the Women’s Retreat for Zarephath Christian Church held at Sandy Cove Retreat Center in North East, MD – presenting her teachings of “Harvest of Hearts!” Our God abundantly and powerfully answered our prayers for all of us (135 attendees) to delight ourselves in the Lord and to know and trust our Lord Jesus more deeply and fully as the Healer, Holder and Harvester of our hearts! Our God reached into our hearts to free us, renew us and transform us by His unfailing love! “We Are Not The Same!” – the theme song (by Brad and Rebekah), and God’s eternal truth and purpose for each of us – became a deep reality for many of us present! Many Spiritual Dwarfs were killed or mortally wounded! You’ll just have to ask someone who attended what that means! Many of these precious women are choosing to take God at God’s Word more fully, follow Jesus more closely, with soft and pliable hearts, and to live as ambassadors of Christ – reaching out to others with God’s love to share His message of reconciliation!
Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

Special thanks to our TBG women, DeAnne Harland, Teresa Warren, Allison Taite-Tarver and Heather Chabin, who served so lovingly even as they participated so fully in what God had in store for each of them during this weekend…and well beyond!

Where To Next?  
June 17Sylane will be interviewed by Lisa Perna who, along with her husband Rob, co-created and leads the ministry webcast (internet radio station) Touched by Prayer. Sylane has been asked specifically to speak (right after Father’s Day) on Forgiveness – God’s Way! Pray that the love, power, healing and freedom that comes with the True Forgiveness that our Heavenly Father offers to us – and is able to be poured out through us to others – will be made known and break strongholds of bitterness and hurt in many, many lives! May we all know the freedom that Christ offers to us through His love and sacrifice for the forgiveness of all sin of all people for all time!

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free! Stand firm, then,  
and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1

Remember to join us on the 10th day of each month as we passionately PRAY for God’s life-giving, life-freeing, transforming work to be done in the lives of all with whom we minister – at conferences, counseling sessions, on corners and in coffee shops!

Celebrating with you the love, grace and truth of our Lord Jesus
– on behalf of the Board and Staff of Transformed by Grace!
