WHEN I SAY I AM A CHRISTIAN

 

 

 

When I say ... I am a Christian

 

I'm not shouting "I am saved."

 

I'm whispering "I get lost"

 

that is why I chose this way.

 

 

When I say ... I am a Christian

 

I don't speak of this with pride.

 

I'm confessing that I stumble

 

and need Someone to be my guide.

 

 

When I say ... I am a Christian

 

I'm not trying to be strong.

 

I'm professing that I am weak

 

and pray for strength to carry on.

 

 

When I say ... I am a Christian

 

I'm not bragging of success.

 

I'm admitting I have failed

 

and cannot ever pay the debt.

 

 

When I say ... I am a Christian

 

I'm not claiming to be perfect.

 

My flaws are too visible

 

but God believes I'm worth it.

 

 

When I say ... I am a Christian

 

I still feel the sting of pain.

 

I have my share of heartaches

 

which is why I seek HIS name.

 

 

When I say ... I am a Christian

 

I do not wish to judge.

 

I have no authority

 

I only know I'm loved.
