Hillsong Colour your world women's conference 2005
These are comments at Phil's blog about colour:
Hi all, just got back home from colour -- it was awesome!!
Just realised, actually this is what I've learned so far, that I'm red. That's it. Only red. no other colour. I'm a bit horrified by this revelation. There's just so many other colour that's missing in my world and I need to go find....
The atmosphere was great... everybody received a warm welcome: red carpet entry with guys cheering and clapping on both sides, which really made one feel like a princess, everyone's dressed up and smiles, beautiful music everywhere, beautiful coffee, food, volunteers everywhere who were just too eager to help and greet, the boys were extra kind and nice almost make you feel weird, they clapped, cheered, served icecream, food, almost too nice to be real.
Teachings were very practical, down to earth, but it was very hard to sit through a session without being teary.
Bobbie's message last night was "Don't shoot me --- I'll get better!" showing us ways and areas where we could get better.
Vera this morning talked about how as a girl or 6 left and abandoned by her own parents, full of rejection and rebellion and disappointments, later found God, and how God transformed her into a beautiful princess, and through forgiveness she had led her mom to the Lord...
Merilyn shared about her heart toward children and orphans in Uganda, how she believed that these children they rescued will become leaders of the next generation of the nation and to the world.
Holly Wagner spoke about marriage and relationship, how the Lord told her, although she had so many success in her ministry, if she failed as a helper to her husband, she hasn't fulfilled her calling at all.
Then Lucinda spoke about living life from a position of strength of private world.
These are just little bits and pieces....I gotta run.
Holly was soooo awesome. One minute everyone was crying, the next minute everyone's laughing. She just captured all the girls' hearts. There was a massive amount of people responded to her altar call at the end of her message. She looked so stunningly beautiful.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had an operation, and should be having another one now, but she came to colour instead, and will go back straight away to her second operation.
She was mainly talking about being warriors. She listed in both sessions of different mindset on the broad road and narrow road.
Warriors don't freak out; they're not complaining; they rise in the midst of challenges and trials; they endure; they don't quit; they stay at the post; they train new recruits, the younger ones; they know how to use the armours and weapons; they're stable and prepared; their faith is real and know the Word; they stay committed to the cause; they were made for the cause; they don't abandon the army, but are honoured to be entrusted with the battle; they know their enemy; they hold fast to what has been promised to them, not the lies of the enemy; they follow orders(they don't have to have all the answers, but they have all the faith for this day); they know they're part of the team, they're never alone(She has positioned herself well for the battle, as she has planted herself in the house of God); they focus on what they're going to, not what they're going through; they keep their eyes on Jesus.
Sorry my notes are messy, as English is my third language...lol(Vera's signature phrase)
Notes from Vera's message:
1. When God's calling you, He always has His people in mind as people who will help you. Example of two pregnant women in the Bible, Elizebeth and Mary, how Elizebeth had helped and encouraged Mary.
2. God always greet you and treat you highly as a beautiful princess, even before you look like one or become one.
3. Smart girls understand with high favour always comes with responsibility.
Example: she was staying at a hotel, and was wondering why the room was so messy. Later she realised that she had put a "do not disturb" sign on the door--Do we put such a sign on our doors so God can't come in and clean up?
4. With God all things are possible and He Always finds a way.
5. Follow Mary's example, just believe, accept, rise up and go.
6. When people are gonna believe in you and lift you up, stay humble and give all credit to God.
7. Never underestimate the power of encouragement in the gathering of people of the same journey.
thought from donna's leadership session (Kylie's comment)
what is your bowl of red lentils? what immediate comfort/ easy to settle for thing could take you off course?
So far(at the beginning of tonight's session) Colour has registered 10821 delegates from 26 nations, but amongst the students there were 38 nations represented, 944 volunteers, they have used 60 km of toilet papers, 2500 rubbish bags, 46200 icecreams were handed out, 27600honeycones, 4800 chocholates, people in the call centre have spent 840 hours talking and chatting to people on the phone, 2.7km armband were used, 238 compassion children were sponsored, 725 gifts were placed under the gift tree...
I'm so tired these are all I can remember for now...
