“Pay attention to who is clapping for you.”
Nope. Just no.
I have two questions to ask regarding the above statement:
1. If God is clapping for you then what does it matter if anyone else is?
2. Are you not going to clap for someone else because they didn’t clap for you?
Ladies, this isn’t the mentality I want to teach my daughter or my nieces or my students. The time and energy spent on seeing who liked what and who followed whom can be spent in the Word. It can be spent serving. It can be spent truly resting in His arms.
I want my girls to clap for others regardless if those same people clapped for them or not.
Because it’s kind.
Because they have a good heart.
Because they are genuinely happy for others.
Because they are confident enough to not need a clap back.
Ladies, clap for someone today.
Or hug them.
Or text them.
Not because they did it first but because lifting others up is the evidence of God living within you.
Because joy is contagious.
And Momma, that thing you are too scared to do because you’re too worried about what others will think or if they will clap – no ma’am. If God wants you to do it – if He told you to do it – you go right on ahead.
He’s clapping for you.
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
