In 1606, the Plague hit London. Hard. Life stopped completely.
This included public gatherings including church meetings, sporting events and theatre outings.
During this time, William Shakespeare was becoming an incredibly prolific and well-respected playwright. However, his work and livelihood was suddenly threatened as London theatres closed for 3 years.
He had a choice: Bow down and give up all his hard work or persevere. It was during this time period that he wrote some of his most well-known plays including Macbeth, King Lear and Antony & Cleopatra.
What dream has God placed on your heart regardless of every obstacle you may currently be facing?
Write out 3 dreams that you have in your heart, big or small, and pray into them.
Today, no more procrastination. Start the business plan; start to write that book; run the first 5k (as long as you are not self-isolating). Persevere in what you believe God has placed on your heart. Embrace this season. Make it productive for His kingdom.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/mat.7.13-14.NIV
The Choice of Trust I absolutely love referring to the Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as many of Noah Webster's original word definitions contain references to the King James Bible itself; this was all before it was diluted into our contemporary dictionaries. Literally this is the definition found in that dictionary: TRUST , noun 1. Confidence; a reliance or resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship or other sound principle of another person. He that "putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." Proverbs 29:25 KJV 2. He or that which is the ground of confidence. ..."O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. Psalms 71:5 KJV Trust is a confident expectation. Trust, like faith, is not a feeling. It is a choice. I love that “he that putteth his TRUST in the Lord shall be safe” part of the definition above. Safe? Hmmm? In this world we simply cannot put our trust into imperfect humans. There is only One that cannot fail or forsake us.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:4-6 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/exo.20.4-6.NIV
