Hillsong women -- Holly Wagner
Holly Wagner rocked at the house of Hillsong women yesterday. She's fun, she's pretty, she's full of energy and she's contagious.
But before she preached, Bobbie Houston announced that her son's getting married next Monday. She introduced the bride to be, and asked her why she loves her son. She said, he's gorgeous, then she's speechless and just said, if you(audience)really want to know, come and ask me. Then Bobbie asked her daughter Laura, why she loves her brother, Laura simply said, "I don't."
Then Christine Caine preached about giving. She said, out of 11 people that Jesus had healed, only one came back and gave thanks, and as a result, that one was made whole. So we can all be healed, in some area, but to be made whole, we need to give thanks. Gratitude leads to wholeness.
Then it's 3:16 -- the dance group. They're a bunch of Asian people mainly, but definately has a spirit of dance among them. Sometimes I wish I could be one of them. ... But, I think I'm too old. I'll just let Ellie dance.
Then Holly. The beautiful, jolly God chick.
Her message was about connection, we are called to connect with each other, connect with the community, we're not to do life alone. People's lives can be a mess, but the mess is just like the back of a tapestry. If we look at all the tread, we wouldn't have a clue what all those threads are for, why do they exist, but if we give their lives to Jesus, and when He turns the tapestry over, it's a beautiful, stunny picture, where every thread finds its meaning and purpose of existance. The current threads of life can be dark and painful, but if we hold on to the hand of the Father, He'll see us through.
She showed a picture where a baby in her mother's womb is undergoing a surgery. The doctor touched the baby with his hand, and amazingly, the baby grabbed firmly of his finger with her hands. The illustration and the picture brought a whole wave of tears among the women. I had a look over the whole audience, heaps of women lift up their hands to wipe off tears.It was very touching.
Holly Wagner is from LA, she and her husband runs an amazing church. So if you're in LA or happen to be there for the weekend or holiday, go and visit them. She actually looks like a movie star, and she speaks like one,too.
