Acton Carnival

Acton Carnival


On the 9th of July 2016, Acton Carnival happened. And of course WE happened too. 

(Our Church stand where people were able to stop and talk to our appointed members behind the desk, find out information and be blessed by the word.)

Acton Carnival is one of the summer festivals that takes place in Ealing [London]. It is an amazing event celebrating the community and culture of everyone with live music, good food and beautiful stands.

My church, BLW Hammersmith actively took part in this carnival having our own stand in Acton Park and evangelising throughout the day with our daily devotional Rhapsody of Realities (ROR). 


We had a glorious time giving out ROR and preaching the gospel to the many people that attended the carnival. I personally really enjoyed this opportunity because there were a lot of young people who came out on this beautiful day, who I and my other teens were able to reach out to and talk to about God and Jesus Christ. 

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” – Mark 16:15

We have a job to do, and no one said we couldn’t have fun while doing it! 


The atmosphere of love and laughter and life was very present and strong. But so was the presence of the Holy Spirit who was our guide and also doing his job as we did ours, planting the seed, the gospel into the people of the Acton community and all those who came to celebrate with us. 

“And let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds, not forsaking our meeting together [as believers for worship and instruction], as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more [faithfully] as you see the day [of Christ’s return] approaching.” – Hebrews 10:24-25

As children of God, we need to take advantage of opportunities like this, to reach the masses, bring them into God’s loving arms, help each other grow in the Word and go back out there to reach more. 

From the prayers leading up to the carnival to partaking on the day itself, it was a lovely experience and I cannot wait for next year!

A Life Worth Living

A Life Worth Living

Two weeks ago, I talked about not letting anyone rain on our parade and how we can do anything we set our minds too with the Holy Spirit as our guide.

This week, I’m talking about living that good life!🎉 *cue party music*

(Side note – This is literally what I looked like coming out of my final exam this afternoon 😄)

God has given us a life of beauty, success, prosperity and favour. All those things point to a life full of enjoyment to me.🙌 

We should take advantage of the new life we have in Christ, enjoying it to the fullest and bringing other people into it, so they can enjoy it with us – I mean, who wants to party alone all the time🙄? 👬👫👭

Psalm 24: 1-2 says: 

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, The world, and those who dwell in it.”

And because we are of God, then everything is ours too! Everything that belongs to Jesus Christ belongs to us too because we are joint-heirs with Him. So, really the World and everything in it, is ours and for us to enjoy. 

*hint hint*!This means that the best way to enjoy life is with God.

“Everything is already yours as a gift … the world, life, death, the present, the future – all of it is yours, and you are privileged to be in union with Christ, who is in union with God.” – 1 Corinthians 3:21-23 

In my previous post, I said that there’s enough success to go around. Well there’s also enough enjoyment and God’s goodness to go around. The earth is full of it. 

We shouldn’t live life, just existing, like “Que Sera, Sera” (Whatever will be, will be), but more Carpe diem! Seize the day and its opportunities! Take action. 💥 

We’ve got that beautiful God kind of life, that Zoe. So, don’t think we can just be living ordinary lives and that there are certain things we can’t get or don’t deserve. Everything is already ours. 

“Everything was created through him; nothing – not one thing! – came into being without him. What came into existence was Life, and the Life was Light to live by. The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness; the darkness couldn’t put it out.” – John 1:3-5

Let’s not let anybody try and put out that light inside of us. Shine brightly, living life to the fullest and enjoying what God has given you, like he intended. 

Be happy always and appreciate all that there is to this wonderful life in Christ. From morning to night, family and friends, the food that you eat and the people that you meet. Enjoy everything and every moment of life and all it has to offer and all you have to offer it.
