Hey guys 👋🏼 this is an in-house post for all my AUSSIE Hillsong family.

Hey guys 👋🏼 this is an in-house post for all my AUSSIE Hillsong family. Our young people across our church are gearing up for SUMMERCAMPS starting THIS TUESDAY & I heard there were still quite a few kids needing sponsorship and I knew I could help by putting the call out, donating myself and praying for generous minded people to step in. It’s not a hand out but a help up; they pay some of the registration & people like us come alongside them and get them across the line. I’m doing this because 1. My life was changed at a SUMMERCAMP, I remember putting up my hand and crying out saying “Use me God, whatever you want, I love to sing but whatever you want.” It helped to steel my convictions when it came to my relationship with God and His church. And I’m praying for the same life changing moments for kids at camp that I know will happen if we can just get the kids along who really need this. A safe place, full of hope, life, encouraging words and THE PRESENCE OF GOD - which changes EVERYTHING & ANYTHING, our God is that good. It’s gunna be the best week y’all ! Thank you for those donating ; whether money, little or large or prayer - it ALL counts ! And there’s no compulsion here either - whoever wants to give (the cheerful giver 😉) the link is in my bio ☺️👌🏼 And thank you on behalf of the kids - they don’t even know what’s coming yet 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Hmmm... what do I say about WHOLE HEART. well guys, we have a brand new single that came out today called WHOLE HEART (in parentheses 😉) Hold Me Now - I feel weird about posting videos of myself singing ha so I found this fun one instead 👆🏼 Thoughts about this song : - I think God has a sense of humour, if you know you know ha. - Also I love words; words of affirmation and encouragement, descriptive, raw & powerful, I mean if the power of life and death is in the tongue as the bible says- they’re pretty important. But if I’m honest it wasn’t till we hit record and then some, that the words of this one have become more and more beautiful to me. The kindness of our Heavenly Father who loves us too much to leave us in our mess, sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die and be raised from the dead so we could know Him intimately, and stand up 2,000+ years later, head held high in His presence and sing that we are HEALED AND FORGIVEN, LOOK WHERE MY CHAINS ARE NOW, DEATH (and SIN) HAS NO HOLD ON ME, COS YOUR GRACE HOLDS THAT GROUND, AND YOUR GRACE HOLDS ME NOW.... ummm Jesus thankyouuu 😭😭😭😭😭😭 And getting to sing that tonight @frontlinecity / @frontlinehills SummerCon for the first time since recording it was SOME.THING.ELSE “ Look where my chains are now “ Leaving tonight thankful for what my God has done and faith for what He could do - cos WON’T HE DO IT ! Also thank you @joelhouston & @aodhanking for labouring - there’s so many unseen moments, pages of lyrics unused, all so that people can sing truth. Only heaven will know the true beauty of this sacrifice. Thank you 🙌🏻💜

This time last year, I walked into the bridal trunk show of @lizmartinezbridal to meet the designer herself and pick out my dream wedding dress. This year, Liz is back in Sydney (!!!) & this week I get to take my newly engaged little sister along to her latest trunk show 10th JAN - 16th JAN (!!!!) And who knows. . . maybe she’ll say yes to her dress ?!!! #specialdays💜#lizmartinez💜#dreamdress😍#dreamdressfriends💜 📸 @anabellitchfield

CONTINUED from LAST POST. . . . Last year was actually a year of heart dreams being fulfilled and then some. It was also a year of capacity; which sadly ha NEVER comes in the easy stuff but to stretch and grow, you have to be uncomfortable, and stretching can take a seemingly long time. How good are growing pains said no one ever ha but God in His kindness. How good is our God who not only says that there is more, but that His grace is sufficient. So if He has more for us like His word says he does (immeasurably more than we could ever ask or dream ESP 3:20 Ps. B prophesied this over us as a church last year but I don’t think it’s over) He also has more of Himself for us than we realise : more grace, more mercy, more kindness, more love, more of Himself to be revealed if only we’d step in and say Here I Am Lord, not my will but Yours be done in and through my life, let it be just as You will it O God. So here’s to 2019, GET YOUR HOPES UP “So you also, keep your hopes high and be patient, for the presence of the Lord is drawing closer.” ‭‭James (Jacob)‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭TPT He is kinder than we think, closer than we know and He’s just getting started. As a friend recently said, “ It’s about to get a little rowdy in here “ So here’s my yes again Jesus, I’m all IN 💜

How kind is God. The last Sunday of our holidays and we had planned to go to another campus tonight to just sit and soak. Sadly my Ben stayed home as he was crook, but he encouraged me to still go (coincidentally my little sister was co-leading for the first time in aaages so that was the extra push even though I was a tad late 🤦🏼‍♀️😬) As soon as I walked in the presence of God hit me and boom, tears ha I couldn’t help it. So so so good. There’s literally NOTHING like the presence of God. My first Sunday back in almost 2 weeks and everything was awesome (I don’t want to lose this - if we lean in we will receive, every single Sunday. Forget that - Every. Single. Service. Our God is this good !) Side note my sister killed it. I was worshipping, eyes shut and halfway through this high voice cut through with power. I had to open my eyes to scan who it was cos i didn’t know the voice / tone up there and oh my gosh it was Shez ! I didn’t know she could sing up there and like that - was so cool - proud of you Shezwa. Then Sam Fagan got up - special “the shepherd “ Sam - as soon as he started to read the scripture at the start of his message I started weeping - it was exactly what I needed to hear going into this new year “Having said that, beloved, we are fully convinced that there are more beautiful and excellent things, which flow from your salvation. For God, the Faithful One, is not unfair. How can he forget the beautiful work you have done for him? He remembers the love you demonstrate as you continually serve his beloved ones for the glory of his name. But we long to see you passionately advance until the end and you find your hope fulfilled. So don’t allow your hearts to grow dull or lose your enthusiasm, but follow the example of those who fully received what God has promised because of their strong faith and patient endurance.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:9-12‬ ‭TPT‬‬ Last year was actually a year of heart dreams being fulfilled and then some. It was also a year of capacity; which sadly ha NEVER comes in the easy stuff but to stretch and grow, you have to be uncomfortable, and stretching can take a seemingly long time.

My little sister got engaged last night and I couldn’t be happier for her 😭 If you know, you know. Ever since she started dating @__andyg I stopped worrying about her, filled with peace, as I watched how he loved her, protected her, held her delicately and pushed her towards her dreams. I’ve always wanted a brother and I think we are pretty blessed to say, ‘welcome to the family’ Andy from New York and don’t forget it ha 💜 I love you guys so much and are behind you all the way 😘 Side note : december engagements hey 😏 ( Last year myself, this year you Shez, and now we’ll be praying in your guy Ej - Gods saving the best for last - he’s going to be lovely ) PPS. I love a good blurry photo ha

It’s the LOVE OF MY LIFE’S 30th BIRTHDAY TODAY 💜 He is the kindness of God in physical form, a gift I’ve been thanking Jesus for and shall continue to, for the rest of my days. He doesn’t have Instagram so he won’t see this, which makes me love him even more. A man not caught up in the temporal, but rather a heart fixed on eternity - Benjamin Gaukrodger you have my mine forever 💜 #JesusNo1#BenNo2#youwineverytime#mylover#🔥

Driving in my car down the highway with tears streaming down my face at the faithfulness of God, His kindness, His goodness and how He never leaves us. Praying this song puts courage in your legs to keep taking a step, a fire in your heart, reminding you of the breath in your lungs and who gave it to you, may it put hair on your chest (a childhood saying, felt right haha) and may it cause is to keep looking up, towards our Jesus where our help comes from; the author, the finisher and perfecter of our faith. What a year. JESUS 😭🙌🏻 Excited to take this confession in 2019. “ Don’t let your heart be troubled, Hold your head up high, Don’t fear no evil, Fix your eyes on this one truth, God is madly in love with you Take courage Hold on Be strong Remember where our help comes from “ 👆🏼 And thank you to the mauve-pant wearing human @joelhouston who somehow wrote it out again, from his knees another hearts cry. I truly believe heaven is rushing in 💜

Hello to all my gals Sydney side :
SISTERHOOD UNITED NIGHT is happening TONIGHT
Hello to all my gals Sydney side : SISTERHOOD UNITED NIGHT is happening TONIGHT 6pm hangs for a 7PM start. I tried to repost my dear friend @k_fielding ‘s post because she said it beautifully but alas technology is not my strength ha so I’m literally posting it instead. It’s real, raw, honest and just like Kare said, it would be so sad for you to miss out on what God does among His daughters when you position yourself to be in the room - there’s nothing like it. My first ever anything-sisterhood-colour-womens-thing was a United night 7 years ago and I had doubts - cos if it was all pink and girly I was out ha - but as I walked in, the presence of God was so thick I couldn’t help but have a wet face all night because I couldn’t stop weeping in the presence of God - and I don’t think I’ve truly ever stopped . So bring a tissue, bring your friend, your mum, your little gal, and let’s enjoy the presence of God together, leaning into what God wants to do in and through us - AND just incase you didn’t know Ps. Bobbie every single time she speaks is prophetic (seriously speaking into my friends and my future seasons each time we’ve gathered and shown up, and leaned into her message - to the point where we look at each other and ask .. has Ps. Bobbie has been reading our journals somehow?!! haha) she is also hilarious and genuine and loving all in the same breath — so bring a liner cos we’ll probably laugh waaay too much as well ha . #soreal😂#drinking2litresaday#haha#cantwait#seeyouintheroom#sisterhoodUNITEDnight#itsallinthename#wheretheresunityGodcommandsablessing 💜💜💜
