Important piece on Environmental issues

"Think Of The Children" This is a powerful environmental piece which I dedicate today to Greta Thunberg and all those trying desperately to save our beautiful planet. Follow the link for your free download. It occurs to me that the title and selected lines from this piece would make an incredible rap, how about someone making a video and putting it up on YouTube - if it goes viral WOW - what a difference we could all make! Please do put my copyright somewhere on the screen though!

We are excited to announce the launch of two new e-books, "The Betrayal Of The Innocent" and "Discovering Calvary". "The Betrayal Of The Innocent" deals with the trauma of sexual abuse and is a very significant addition to our library of e-books and "Discovering Calvary" is a fascinating insight into the Christian journey and how we are able to receive emotional healing through relationship with God. Please visit our Inspirational Section and study the in-depth synopsis of each of these books, you may know somebody to whom these books may be a REAL blessing!

Vital information that parents and children need to know.
The Young Heart Awakens E-book Cover

It is with great pleasure that we announce the release today of the new, revised edition of our E-book “The Young Heart Awakens”.

As a parent, whether you are particularly religious or not, I’m sure you are well aware of the fact that YOUR daughter deserves much better protection and much better guidance than modern society or our School Systems offer her. “Practice safe sex and try to avoid getting STDs” may be good advice as far as it goes, particularly for the promiscuous, but doesn’t YOUR daughter deserve BETTER and WISER counsel than that?

The purpose of this particular e-book is to bring focus and objectivity into young peoples’ lives and to expose all the absurd ‘psycho-babble’ and entrenched atheistic Humanism that is actually BEHIND the supposedly “the very much more ‘enlightened’ attitudes” our modern society now requires them to embrace. Vigilant parents are already well aware of the unsavoury and not very subtle control Government Departments all over the World are now exerting over not only every aspect of our children’s upbringing but also the kind of ‘VALUES’ that can and cannot be taught in our Schools. Without any parental consultation or consent they now teach our children that they must ACCEPT all kinds of aberrant sexual practices as innocuous ‘alternative lifestyle choices’ and at the same time actively encourage bisexual experimentation and sexual promiscuity as an important part of the ‘journey of discovery’ ALL young people need to make to ascertain WHO or WHAT they really ARE! THIS is the kind of ‘education’ and ‘social environment’ our children have to contend with the moment they leave our homes in the morning!

We who actually have moral values and religious beliefs must actively ENSURE that our young people VALUE themselves and their bodies. They have to KNOW that there is a better way to live, and that they can and should have SELF-RESPECT and HUMAN DIGNITY in a World that now openly mocks and opposes anything that is moral and decent. Help YOUR daughter see and understand the appalling ‘values’ she is being taught and the lie of atheistic Humanism, in which only humankind and ‘The Self’ is worshipped and everyone simply does ‘whatever feels good to them’.

If we truly want to safeguard our children, we must each draw a line in the sand and declare ‘this far and no further’. We must re-establish moral guidelines and traditional values for ourselves and our families. Like Joshua we too can take a stand and say: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”. [Joshua 24:15] You can begin here and with the help of this book turn YOUR home into a Sanctuary of peace and sanity in which your family can live safely and decently.

Glimpses of God

Achieving Relationship With God Through Prayer

A humble spirit and the ability to subjugate ‘The Self’ are both essential if we truly want to know God and enter into relationship with Him. We have to be able to hear His Voice clearly and, temporarily at least, be able to ‘quarantine’ areas of our mind, stilling our own voices in order to hear His. This is not easy for most of us but the Bible assures us in Hebrews 11:6 that God is ‘the Rewarder’ of those who diligently seek Him - if the desire and determination in us is strong enough we can and will succeed!

Taking our prayer lives a step further and seeking to achieve a real relationship with God requires a very different approach to prayer. We have to abandon our normal ‘monologue’ style prayer and open our minds to the fact that this relationship CAN BE a two-way communication…we must pray expecting to receive from Him. There can be no ‘time-limit’ on this type of prayer, we sit before Him sharing our thoughts, our desire to follow Him more closely, we ‘wait’ upon Him, and in due time, at His appointed time, we will start to hear. Gods’ Spirit speaks to our spirits, it’s a whisper from within, a gentle stirring inside. It is wonderful…peaceful…illuminating. He sometimes guides us to look at a particular Scripture and then suddenly that Scripture becomes ‘alive’ to us and we see and understand things in that text that we never saw before, it is a truly amazing experience.

We also soon realize that Gods’ Thoughts are not like ours in any way at all! It is just as Isaiah 55:8/9 says “… my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Gods’ Thoughts are totally Pure and Holy because HE is Pure and Holy! There is an incredible PURITY and RIGHTEOUSNESS that emanates from God that is impossible to describe, it is completely overwhelming. The mind of man cannot cope with or in any way comprehend the ENORMITY of His boundless MAJESTY, BEAUTY, POWER and GRACE. The Perfection of the World He Created is but a tiny reflection of Him and we can SEE and are AWARE of only an infinitesimal part of it!

It is to man’s detriment that he will not ALLOW himself to travel down that road: his mind is too limited, his ego too great. We are made in Gods’ Image but we are not Him, nor ever can be – it was Adams’ folly and man-kinds ever since to think we ever could be. Many still choose to vaunt themselves before God, endlessly challenging, abusing and mocking a Creator who truly IS AWESOME. In 2 Tim 3:1/7 we read: “...in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers…unthankful, unholy… despisers of those that are good. Traitors, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” He concludes that they are “…ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”.

We contain a tiny essence of His Spirit and yet we’re afraid to even entertain the ‘idea’ of it, the SCOPE of it, or to truly ALLOW that spirit to develop within us. We are too afraid to seek The Truth that would heighten our senses and increase our understanding of ALL things, every aspect of the World around us: we limit OURSELVES by our refusal to fully embrace what we cannot explain! How foolish we are not to explore to the utmost of our ability every aspect of Himself that God Chooses to reveal to us! We could all be so much MORE, we could be ALL He Created us to be through FAITH and PRAYER and by allowing His Holy Spirit to move freely in our lives!

A Glimpse of The Journey   ...For Those Seeking A Closer Walk With God.

The toll of city life today and the ACTUAL price we pay!


The world is full of aching hearts,
Full of fear, dulled hope and pain;
People afraid to count the cost,
Merely hoping it’s not in vain.
So many are trapped in emptiness,
They’re the lost in hot pursuit
Of imagined prizes and worthless goals,
Idols held in high repute.
How God must weep as He watches
While they seek as their common goal
The riches of a transient world,
Not Salvation for the soul.
When will they see the futility
Of their endless toil and strife?
One day they’ll see what their idols cost –
The Gift of Eternal Life!

“Aching hearts, full of fear, dulled hope and pain”, those few words describe the way far too many of us live our lives today, refusing to admit what it actually does cost us physically, emotionally, spiritually, just to get through another day. We know in our hearts that it is all in vain, that tomorrow will be exactly the same, and the day after that, and the day after that. The Apostle Paul wrote that “Spiritual truths are spiritually discerned”, but few of us today are really looking for spiritual solutions for problems we perceive as belonging to our Modern World, and far too complex for God to be the only answer we need. I did too. I had no-one to open my eyes to the truth, to guide my feet along the right path. I met with God when I was very, very small, too young to understand all I needed to understand so of course I stumbled and fell very often as I grew up. My childhood was not a happy one and even when I was young I would wonder ‘What is the point? Why am I here? Why was I ever even born?’, but even though I wandered far from God feeling lonely and afraid, I later discovered that He had never ONCE let go of my hand, although I had most certainly let go of His! Why not spend a little time with me on my other website too, sylviadarling.com perhaps sharing some of my heartache and despair will help you find healing and explanations for your own. I promise you it’s not a BORING read and it’s only a click away…join me one day, you have absolutely nothing to lose and so very much to gain!

This months' instalment of "Lost and Found, The Other Side Of Me" can be viewed   here.


An emotionally damaging ‘first day’ at my new home was quickly followed by many more days just like it as I realized I had come into a very fragmented and divided home. ‘Welcome Home’ chats soon revealed hurtful and shocking truths that shook me to the core of my young soul and left permanent, never to be forgotten emotional scars.

Missed an instalment? Can't wait to see what happens next? Catch up on sylviadarling.com or download the e-book "Lost and Found, The Other Side Of Me" in the Inspirational Section.

Sharing the vision and purpose of this website.

A Personal Message from the Author

Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision the people perish…”

I would like to speak to my readers candidly and from the heart today. Obviously, I would prefer not to have to charge for any of the material available for purchase on this website but I have a vision to reach out to people all over the World to uplift, inspire and encourage them and to show them that God is REAL and that He CARES about them, but there are substantial costs involved in fulfilling that vision.

My very favourite Scripture is Luke 4:18/19/21 Where the Lord reads the Holy text “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

I care passionately about reaching out to people who are hurting for whatever reason, helping them, meeting their need and showing them the way to our wonderful Messiah and ultimately of course God Himself. I live simply and humbly. I am NOT a person who cares about wealth, glitz, glamour, nice homes, fast cars or any form of materialism whatsoever, but if I am to continue to be able to finance my websites and provide the free ministry and downloads that mean so very much to so many I have to raise the necessary funds through the sale of my E-Books, all of which as you know offer essential guidance, information and upliftment for believers in todays harsh and unfeeling World. As the author and ‘keeper of the vision’ behind this website, I would also like to suggest to those of you who are keen to help others and make a real difference in the World, that this new version of “The Young Heart Awakens” would be a thoughtful and sensitive gift to send any young person you know is hurting inside. Knowing that someone has noticed and that somebody cares can make all the difference in the World to anyone who happens to be feeling really bad about themselves and is perhaps barely making it through each day because of the sorrow and disillusionment they feel inside. The suicide rate amongst our cherished young is rising daily all over the World but YOU can make a significant difference by reaching out to someone from YOUR heart TODAY. Give them answers, give them HOPE, give them the help they need… you might just save a life.

Thank you for your continued interest and support, LET’S ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER!

God Bless You!

Uplifting and inspiring Christian Verse

Be Still

God, You are so special to me,
You’re the one thing in my life
That no-one can take away.
There is only one thing that
Can come between us – ME,
And You help me even to overcome myself.
When I withdraw helpless and afraid
You reach out and draw me close.
When I am angry and confused
You listen, then when I am still once more,
You soothe me and explain.
How far is my mind from Yours,
Yet always You are there,
Reaching out to communicate.
I need only to be still to hear.
