The Secret I Share With Shakespeare

So, what is the secret I share with Shakespeare?


Shakespeare wasn’t a Blogger

And no,

Shakespeare didn’t like Latte’s either

Okay, fine, I’ll tell you

The secret I share with Shakespeare is

We share the same Birthday

Little ‘ol me

Born on the same day

As the greatest playwright in history!

Given a few hundred years’ gap, I might add

I wanted to share something else with you

No, it’s not my birthday cake

The secret I share with Shakespeare

I want to share that

God is BIG on details

When you become a mature, wise (cough) woman such as myself

You start to reflect on your life

So, it’s my birthday this week

And the best gift you can give me is this;

Live a life filled with passion

Use the gifts God has given you

And move forward into all that He has waiting for you

Because there is nothing accidental about your life

Everything about you is for a reason

Galatians 6:4-5 says, ‘Make careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.’ 

The secret I share with Shakespeare

God has written every detail of your life

Before you even drew your first breath

And now He is waiting…

Waiting for you to take hold of the destiny

That has your name written all over it

To rise above your circumstances

And to claim the promise

And step forward into all He has whispered into your heart

Dear friend

You are the reason God has given me the gift of writing

To awaken the things that will nurture your soul

To show you that no matter what mistakes or wrong turns you’ve made

God has a purpose for you

So, the secret’s out!

But do you want to know something else?

I’ve discovered that Shakespeare and I share so much more than just a birthday

In Shakespeare’s last will and testament he wrote:

In the name of God…I William Shakespeare of Stratford upon Avon…in perfect health and memory, God be praised, do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following – that is to say, first, I commend my soul into the hands of God my Creator, hoping and assuredly believing, through the merits of Jesus Christ my Saviour, to be made partaker of life everlasting.

How wonderful

That not only do I share the same birthday as William Shakespeare

But we also share the same Saviour too
