I don’t want your claps, or your appraisal.
You see the journey I’ve been on didn’t include claps.
The journey I am on includes trials, tests, and fights behind closed doors of the friendly smile I wear.
Your clap is just a mere realization that I’m the person you never knew I was.
When I was quiet and being hidden by the mighty creator who crafted me in eloquence and molded me into the person I am,
I didn’t receive a clap or a Hooray or a trophie which said , “1st Place Winner To Shade’, The Achiever Of Yesterday.”
I was comforted and graced by the presence of the king, he is my trophie.
To wake up to his new mercy was a gift received everyday.
To be freely welcomed into his presence even though I was a sinner, was my encouragement and a daily refreshment.
So, when you realize who I am, the chosen bride of Christ, Don’t praise me, Praise my Father, praise my savior , praise the one who kept me because I am not me.
I am not me without Him, without the true I am.
He gave me the victory.
I don’t need you to like me.
It’s all for the King!
